- The iPi Group of Companies

Mark is an energy-giver. I asked Mark to work with a group of middle managers concerning the importance of work-life balance. In his highly motivational style, he opened their eyes to the gravity and importance of this work aspect whilst imbuing a sense of "can-do" optimism in each and every member. He is hugely entertaining and enjoyable to work with which is most important in conveying a memorable message.

Mark was a true breath of fresh air for our company with his presentation technique. Too many people preach the same information, but worse still, with the same spiel. Mark was very entertaining, dug deep and left us all with no doubt we weren't getting everything that we could from ourselves. The beauty was, he left that message but in a positive way! (Don't ask... just experience it yourself!) Extremely highly recommended.

I have had the pleasure of attending several of Mark's workshops over the last couple of years. Mark is insightful and engaging. He has the ability to read and understanding his audience and be able to adapt his style to meet the audience's needs. I have also read two of Mark's books which add another layer of inspiration. I would highly recommend Mark as a Keynote Speaker &or as a consultant.
