Mark has a natural ability to effortlessly link the outdoors and the rigours of exploration with the everyday business environment. His engaging and entertaining style makes the stories and parallels he draws easy to absorb and to act upon. A really great and inspirational speaker.

Jon Geldart | Executive Director - Markets Development at Grant Thornton International Ltd

Mark is an engaging and authentic speaker who presented to around thirty business owners and directors as part of our leadership development programme, called Great200Leaders. The theme was "extreme leadership" and Mark had the audience spellbound with a mixture of storytelling, anecdotes, pictures and videos. Our audience thoroughly enjoyed the Q&A session too. Mark has a real edge to his talks.

Ian McLaughlan | Great 200 Leaders conference

In the world of so-called professional adventurers, Mark stands out as being different. Unlike egocentric attention seekers desperate to tell us about their particular brilliance, Mark uses his expeditions to make the world a better place for young people. He does this through education and communication programmes and by generally ‘putting something back on the table’. He is a decent man driven by strong principles - a remarkable speaker who can captivate any audience.
