"Mark was amazing! We surveyed participants who mentioned their favourite part of the event was Mark's presentation. The thing I loved about Mark is there was no cookie cutter approach, he tailored the messaging to the event and the audience. He was curious to know what we were trying to achieve and made sure that resonated in his presentation." Telstra 2024
