"If you're looking for an engaging motivational speaker with a captivating tale to tell, look no further than Mark. He takes his audience back to 1980, when he led a team--four individuals who were never supposed to win--to a two-tenths-of-a-second victory and a Gold medal in the Moscow Olympics. His friendly, confident style, steeped in humour and sprinkled with dynamic body language, draws the audience in and keeps them enthralled. And in the end, everyone comes away with some concrete ideas for how to lead people. It's hard not to be infected by Mark's winning attitude. Book him now, you won't regret it."
Daniel Nestle, Marketing & PR Manager, Australia & New Zealand
