Mark Carter

With over two decades as a learning and development professional, building frameworks for blue chip billion-dollar companies and SME's, Mark Carter knows a thing or two about human behaviour. 

He can present on adaptability, productivity, peak performance, culture, talent and sales … anything and everything to do with people. That’s because Mark Carter has dedicated his life to helping people adapt their perspective, make choices and take actions that deliver better results in their lives. 

Author of Add Value, published globally by Wiley in 2020, Mark shares why truly knowing what we value, and why, is the real basis of success.

From a leader and training Manager for Contiki Holidays to working across more than 40 countries, Mark knows how to connect and get the best out of people. He understands that the secret to wealth for every business sits with its key assets, its people. And when he presents, his keynotes do more than engage and entertain, they inspire people to look to the future, to evolve their skills and embrace change. 

Mark’s enthusiasm is infectious. He connects with his audience because he cares about his audience. And he truly wants them to know what he knows, so they can leverage their strengths, manage their weaknesses and be the best person they can be. 
He should be bottled up and drunk daily. You’ll have to settle for a presentation, that is if you’re lucky enough to book him. Because people love him.
