Results. Value. Delivered.
Mark was the first person to bring a proper meaning to Diversity and Inclusion with the emphasis that you can't have Diversity without Inclusion. He explains this so well through the simple use of a jigsaw. We were fortunate to have Mark as a Keynote Speaker on IWD this year where he conveyed this message and that of sponsorship of Women in the workplace. We had a packed room with over 260 in attendance of which Mark had everybody hanging on his words. I look forward to hearing Mark speak again in the future, thanks Mark."

Mark is an exceptional coach, whose skills can change the mind of even a sceptic like me. From improving my confidence in my own abilities, to providing guidance on a delicate work matter – my work practises have changed for the better. I found the coaching enjoyable and very valuable to both work and home life. I was given clear, professional direction and I expect to reap the benefits for a long time to come.

I recently had some coaching sessions with Mark as I was struggling with a number of career issues. I found Mark extremely intuitive and supportive and he is a very good listener. His questions, whilst few in number were extremely incisive and his approach whereby I had concrete actions to take after each session prompted me to work through the situation in a very short period of time. I would highly recommend Mark and I view him as an expert support who I can turn to again, should the need arise.'

“Mark recently moderated a panel of speakers for an FICC event on "Diversity and inclusion - from HR to business strategy". The event was a great success, drawing together a group of specialists from companies such as Barclays, Silicon Republic and Sodexo. It was evident that Mark's extensive preparation as Moderator, and his excellent presentation on the key concepts that are essential for an understanding of this complex topic, led to a very interactive and inspiring discussion with FICC members. I look forward to working with Mark again in the near future. Merci Mark! Bravo!”
Mark has provided consultancy into the organisation regarding our Inclusion & Diversity strategy, and also added greatly as a panel member during an internal event regarding gender diversity in the workforce. Mark always brings expertise, constructive challenge and current market insight to the table.
Inclusion & Diversity Lead
Not only is Mark a great consultant/trainer in the field of diversity/inclusion he has real world business experience and insight which helped him achieve immediate buy-in from the team.
I was delighted that Mark agreed to record the first podcast in my Networking &... series, which focused on Inclusion and Diversity. Mark provided clear insights and an international perspective which is rare in this field. He has a clear grasp of both the psychological and commercial backdrop to Inclusion and Diversity and demonstrated pragmatic and successful initiatives that are relevant for all industries and organisations whether large or small, domestic or multinational.
Mark helped me to dive below the surface of what I initially perceived my motivations to be in order to better understand what is truly important to me in my career, and how it relates to my life in general. We make so many decisions on a daily basis that sometimes what is important drifts to the background, and can be overrun by what is topical – Mark helped me to instead refocus my attention to develop goals and actions which would guide me to achieve my next career step.
I was surprised at how a simple, guided-conversation and questions allowed me to come to glaring realizations I previously overlooked - Mark is brilliant at that. I loved the fact that, although it was a facilitated discussion, Mark also brought insights about industry and the new roles evolving within it – things I had not heard of before. I would highly recommend engaging Mark’s services if you would like to get some perspective, realign priorities, or even have a basic discussion about your career.
