By tapping into the many similarities between the difficult challenges faced by organisations today and the challenges faced by explorers in very dangerous and hostile regions, Mark is able to deliver a highly thought provoking, inspirational and motivating speech to his audiences.

Mark’s an engaging speaker. He entertains and educates his audience by recounting his first-hand experience of extreme climates in the remotest locations, talking candidly his own leadership style, and how pushing himself to the limit, and beyond, helps him inspire the best from others.

Speaking topics


Mark’s reason for exploring has changed over the years from testing himself physically and mentally in the extremes to developing meaningful documentaries and presentations about modern day exploration.
