Townsville Business Development Centre
- Mark was supposed to speak for an hour including questions but he stayed on for more than 1.5 hours and had the small audience mesmerised and by the end totally energised by his style or presentation and his candid comments about his business history and risks he took. His style was as if he was chatting to a group of good friends - I would highly recommend him to anyone as a speaker.
NSW Forest Products Association
- Mark delivered a very inspirational keynote speech with a very topical insight into the current economic state of Australia and the RBA's effects on all Australians. Our guests were very impressed and full of motivation, so much so that when Mark concluded his speech they carried on their own discussions at their tables for the rest of the evening. They all took something away with them that night. Thanks Mark for your appearance and well thought out words of truth and inspiration.
