You were raised to be normal. Now it's time to learn how to be UNnormal
In school you succeeded by being the best normal you could be. Fit in, follow the rules, do it the way it's always been done. But in the big scary real world the greatest rewards go to those UNnormal people, companies and organizations with the courage to be innovative, follow their curiosities and embrace the unfamiliar.
They get to raise the bar while the timid normals get to play a frustrating game of ineffective catch-up.
MARK TEACHES PEOPLE HOW TO THINK, ACT AND BE UNNORMAL
By combining fun storytelling from his many adventures with insights from studying and working with hundreds of unnormal people, Mark provides a "mind-shift moment" that resets the default habits of his audience.
AUDIENCES LEARN HOW TO:
Mark's audiences also learn that the hard core champions of "UNnormal" are those with enough talent to be in the game plus a critical cocktail of three indispensable qualities:
Mark Has inspired audiences in 38 states over the last 20 years.
He has led everything from intimate workshops with small groups of key people to major keynotes to a large audiences. His largest was over five thousand.
His style is a mixture of:
Entertaining (so they'll be engaged)
Mark is a master storyteller. He believes in putting his own advise into action and shares with his audience all the ups and downs of going after his own UNnormal goals. There was the impromptu gymnastics class he taught to a crowd of Nepalese kids in the Himalayas. Or the struggle of pushing a heavy loaded touring bicycle 5000 miles around Europe. Or the disastrous outcome of diving off a ten meter platform to impress a girl at the age of fourteen. (We've all been there.)
Audience Involvement (so they'll remember)
Before entering the corporate world Mark learned the craft of speaking from inspiring teenage athletes. He quickly discovered that he has a lot more fun when his audience is having a lot more fun. He has been known to give phone book tearing lessons, stage hilarious flexibility contests and stump his audience with frustrating bar bets.
Inspiration (so they'll take action)
All the entertaining and audience involvement is for nothing if they don't leave with mind full of take away ideas that they can start putting into action before they even leave the room. Rather than temporarily motivate a reluctant crowd into briefly flirting with a "better attitude" Mark aims to create a true mind-shift moment that has a lasting effect.
