How do you go from being an industry trainer and leader across Europe for Contiki Holidays to being one of the most sought-after speakers and trainers in Australia and the Asia Pacific?
That is a question asked often of Mark and the answer is understanding people. Understanding how they behave, why they make the choices they do, both professionally and personally.
It is this understanding that has seen Mark hold senior and strategic leadership development roles for major global players across the Asia Pacific and Europe, which led to him to being invited to work on projects design and implement sales strategies and bespoke methodologies for billion dollar sales teams across the globe.
The great lesson that Mark has learned through the success of his work across the past two decades is that in order to grow, businesses need to constantly evolve and change: to learn from the past, being fully present, now, thinking long term possibilities or consequences, planning and preparing for the future.
As a Master of Human behaviour, Mark knows better than anyone that change is tough, and that the leading cause of the failure to successfully implement change are the people required to enact or accept it.
Mark’s goal is not only to motivate, but to outline the importance of aligning a business with its employees, setting them on a journey together to enact change that will deliver the success both want and should have.
He approaches the subjects of leadership, sales, peak performance and behavioural sciences from a unique perspective of depth; with his knowledge crossing all industry channels, including e-commerce, advertising, travel, real estate, property, recruitment, hospitality, telecommunications, banking, government, not-for-profit and many more.
Multi-talented, Mark is a published author, and is also called upon to present at business seminars, is frequently invited to speak as keynote to set the theme, or as host for prestigious gala events such as the ‘Citizen of the Year Awards’ during Australia Day Celebrations.
As a speaker his fascination for both big picture and quirky details of life, weaved with a masterful skill in communication, allows him to build relationships with his audiences that leave them intrigued, inspired and provoked into action.
In his 2019 TEDx, Paws & Effect: How Teddy Bears Can Expand Your Value Perception, Mark spoke on how value is a fundamental key to all aspects in life and it’s the reason why people deal with businesses, support community projects or get behind world changing, global ideas. Simultaneously value, appreciation and worth, is the substance of personal bonds and fulfilment. He explored the 4 dimensions of real value and how to leverage this knowledge to increase the perception of value.
Accredited in recognised leading behavioural tools: including MBTI, DISC, WPMot, Tri Metrix, EQ-i, EQ360, Mark is also the founder of the ‘My Curation’ Learning Management System, specialised for individuals and SME.
In addition Mark is a recurrent contributor to many publications and media, including a bi monthly blog for Travel Bulletin and a weekly guest spot across the 2SM radio network, with his segment heard across 34 stations.
Mark holds the match that can help you, your business and your teams find that spark that will ignite the human potential that lays within all of us.
