Strong leadership is about allowing your team to work to their capacity, not limiting them with yours.
Mark’s international career has focused on one thing: leading change across distances/cultures.
He started his international development in Singapore, and then went on to lead enterprise level change programs in marketing companies across the world, working in cultures and markets as diverse as Egypt, Netherlands, Italy and Japan.
Building on this experience, Mark applied his talents to leading EMEA organizations across in reengineering, information systems, and customer service organizations through periods of significant change. Throughout his career, Mark has successfully led virtual organizations, and built strong, diverse teams that deliver long beyond his tenure.
Mark has worked with executives and organizations across the world to help them change their own leadership habits and change their results.
He has mentored leaders and delivered masterclasses in over 50 countries alongside teaching courses on leadership and influence at business schools across Europe including such prestigious institutions as IE Business School, HEC, and Headspring Executive Development.
Mark also runs bespoke leadership programs within organizations – most recently for Docomo Digital and WiZink Bank, helping strengthen the company’s leaders and equip them and their teams with the tools for growth and success.
Mark has spent the last 35 years exploring the world – living in Singapore, Egypt, Netherlands, Italy, Japan, UK and his home country, the USA…and working across over 50 countries.
He has now settled in London with his Japanese wife Atsuko, and when he’s not helping leaders find the balance between their personal and professional lives, he looks for time to play golf – the sport which earned him a university “scholarship”.
He has always enjoyed working with people from other countries, as Mark knows that every opportunity to work with people from different cultures and backgrounds is an opportunity for us to learn more about ourselves.
