Biography

A sought-after inspirational speaker at industry conferences and Fortune 500 companies around the world, including the NHS, L’Oreal, The Premier League, Google, Method & Ecover, Adobe, Intuit, Neptune Energy, HEC and Oxford Business School, Mark’s TEDx talk has been watched over a million times and was listed as the #1 TED talk every entrepreneur should watch by Steven Bartlett, host of The Diary of a CEO.

Named as one of the 50 most inspiring people in London by the City of London’s backed Inspired 50 Network, Mark’s work has appeared in The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, The Guardian, The Sunday Telegraph and Metro.

Thanks to his creative CV going viral, Mark previously served as Country Manager at the Movember Foundation, where he helped raise €2.8 million for men’s health and inspired 110,000 fundraisers to take part, winning multiple awards along the way.

His first book “It’s Not You, It’s Me” is a modus operandi for unfulfilled professionals looking to find more meaningful and fulfilling work. His new book “Glow in the Dark: How Sharing Your Personal Story Can Transform Your Business and Change Your Life” (Hachette UK), recently won the “Best Self-Development Business Book” of the year award at the 2023 Business Book Awards and is a must read for any leader looking to turn their story into a powerful asset that gets noticed.

Mark believes in flipping the switch on leadership, redefining what it means to be human in business and creating a future worth striving for. That’s why he’s an advisor and early-stage angel investor in impact-driven startups and scaleups including Oddbox, Circa5000, Brewdog, ScoreApp, Frahm, Farewill and This.
