Mark's story had the audience completely captivated from start to finish, and he manages to balance telling the horrific details of his injury with his great sense of humour. CWT has booked conference speakers from all walks of life, and heard some incredible stories, but I have never seen the whole audience on its feet to give a standing ovation like this before. Our theme was 'building on success' and after hearing a story like Mark's you believe that virtually anything is possible, and it certainly puts most day-to-day frustrations clearly into perspective.

How well did Mark meet your objectives? The theme for our conference was ‘vision’ and ‘inspire’. The great feedback from the whole team in general confirms that our objectives were met How would you describe the audience reaction? Inspired, moved, motivated, taking away a personal message
, Marks story took us on a rollercoaster of emotions, the way he shared his poignant memories with honesty and humor was captivating. There are many themes that can be translated into the business environment from his story, Ambition, overcoming challenges and the power of mindset to name but a few, I would thoroughly recommend Mark as a speaker, first class! I have never seen the entire sales team so engaged! Whilst an emotional story and topic, Mark’s delivery left an enormous level of energy which made for a great second day’s conference. Before hearing your inspirational story I would naturally gravitate to being a glass half empty kind of person, hearing your story makes me determined to just fill the glass and drink and enjoy it 'I hope you are able to tell your story to as many people as you are able, I found it both humbling and inspiring.' 'Inspiring, engaging, interesting, shocking, emotive, challenging, thought-provoking, highly-memorable.' 'I have never been so moved or inspired by anyone I have met before.'

Very well. Mark presented with humour and great humility. His story was ‘his own’ and delivered in a very engaging way. The audience reaction was emotional and inspired. Mark was very honest and humble. The audience took him to their hearts and appreciated his candor.

Way above and beyond our expectations. In the past we’ve had politicians, TV personalities – all sorts of high profile people. Mark is the first ever to get a standing ovation.

The motivation speech from Mark, about his battles through life will live long. I left the meeting buzzing, motivated, better equipped for the final quarter and inspired. Thank you.

'Great’ really is a ridiculously inadequate word to describe this inspirational individual.
Mark gave a fantastic talk and was a genuinely nice guy. A real breath of fresh air and a pleasure to deal with. The audience were completely gripped throughout the presentation and he made such an impact we’ve decided to buy 100 copies of his book and send them out to delegates as a thank you for attending. Thanks for all your help in organising!
Please can you pass on our sincere thanks to Mark for such a compelling speech – we all got a lot out of it and it was the perfect end to our day showing that anything really is possible. He kindly signed some books as you know. What we did was have 8 winning fortune cookies and so the people who won his signed books were thrilled, with a queue forming to read the book after the winners have finished it. What a great guy! We will highly recommend to others.

AMAZING - delegates said he was the most inspirational speaker they’ve ever heard, ( I agree) and it’s difficult to move this audience. I will definitely be recommending him to all my colleagues. He was also such a nice person- we had lunch together and chatted during the afternoon. Thank you so much for offering him – you totally nailed it – he was exactly what I was looking for.
Excellent - perfectly pitched and a compelling story
The session was excellent, with the audience giving a standing ovation. It's impossible not to be inspired by his story!
