Mark is certainly one of the best speakers I've heard. Clear, dynamic, engaging, his information is persuasive and compelling, delivered in a way that is memorable and, best of all, offers a clear plan of possible action.

I have used Mark on several occasions at the hospitality events I direct for very good reasons;
Super knowledgeable: Not only does he talk technically about his area of expertise but also with empathy so that regardless of your understanding, you will walk away having learnt something.
He is funny: This guy will deliver serious one liners to take the edge off what can sometimes be regimented event formats
Personable: Whether on the stage, pre or post session you can approach Mark to ask any questions and he will give you time and share his knowledge. He also encourages the audience to be part of the session, the ego is small and delivery big!
