Testimonials 4

  • “Mark’s speech was superb–full of energy, enthusiasm, and wit.  The audience loved it, and was on the verge of cheering at every sentence.”

    Consulate General of France

  • Your talk really was exceptional: you engaged the audience so well, you had so many relevant examples of companies that did or didn’t put failure to work, and above all the topic resonated so well as we – especially here in the US – seek to take more risks and move into more unfamiliar territory to drive greater innovation. So many people commented to me afterwards how much they enjoyed your presentation and learned from it. It was the perfect combination of fun and actionable content!”

  • “Attendees were blown away. Mark pitched the content at the right level.  He ‘got’ our industry and ‘got’ what the advisers do.  Mark delivered.”

    Asteron Life, General Manager
