From New York to Paris, London to Singapore and Madrid to Harare, Mark delivers inspiring and engaging lectures with honesty, humility and passion.
Having spent 36 years traversing some of the most hostile environments on Earth, Mark proves that it is possible for ordinary people to achieve the extraordinary. Meticulous planning, overcoming fears, and finding motivation even at the most seemingly hopeless and frustrating of moments, are among the ingredients that have repeatedly led him to success. Whilst his achievements prove that individuals have the power to overcome obstacles and achieve their goals through perseverance and commitment, they also highlight the fact that great things are rarely achieved by individuals in isolation. More often, success comes through building successful teams; this direct experience, coupled with Marks work developing leaders and building teams for the corporate and government sectors in the Middle East, enables him to bring thought provoking and engaging lessons from the bush to the boardroom, tailored entirely to client objectives, and desired outcomes.
