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 adventures. 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.
FOR MEETING PLANNERS
This attendee was taking action before Mark even finished speaking
"Those who were in attendance this morning and heard your presentation, raved about it. Now everyone who did not attend is a bit jealous and anxious to hear you speak tonight."
"Wow! What a buzz Mark created at our recent membership meeting. His lively presentation combined all the elements we look for in a great program. It was fun, inspiring and informative."
