Testimonials for Mark Schulman

“I’ve had the opportunity to see Mark Schulman’s keynote on two different occasions and each time came away inspired to think and act differently. By integrating music, visuals and a powerful speaking style, Mark is a unique performer in a world of talking heads. In one instance, I saw him convince a group of local government employees to form a drum line, leading to some real a-ha moments about team work and collaboration.

I would heartily recommend him for any corporate or association event that wants to bring in someone that can “shake things up” and give solid take away value at the same time. ”

Tim Sanders, Chief Solutions Officer, YAHOO!


It’s not easy to get a standing ovation from a corporate audience; Mark got two! Mark Schulman’s keynote address was truly a great success and made me, the event planner look like a Rock Star!”

Sandy Scheneker Marketing Events Manager Information Global Solutions


 “I just wanted to say THANK YOU for a great presentation to my client (BICSI). I have heard nothing but glowing reviews from everyone...most of my clients have been with me for 10-20 years and...I would say that you exceed (my) expectations. This is a very technical audience that rarely gives a standing ovation—so the fact that the drummer for P!NK received a standing ovation from this audience says quite a bit. I was most impressed by: 1) your storytelling ability had the audience captivated from start to finish and 2) I love the way you brought the audience along for the ride through audience interaction..."

Arnold Sand - Executive Director
