Mark was one of the highest scoring speakers at our showpiece 2020 event. His informal yet expert style really resonated with the audience and his presentation was both informative and enjoyable.

CGA Strategy

Mark’s talents don’t just extend to having show stopping content that even the most experienced operators are inspired by, he understands that because they sessions are entertaining too, those operators will come back to see him time and time again.

Casual Dining / Commercial Kitchen / lunch!

Mark is in the top echelon of public speakers within the hospitality sector. He has a very warm style of public speaking, using direct language mixed with great anecdotes, with a generally self-deprecating approach.  He holds his audience from start to finish - and we always get wonderful feedback from attendees of events he takes part in.

Propel Info

Mark is certainly one of the best speakers I've heard. Clear, dynamic, engaging, his information is persuasive and compelling, delivered in a way that is memorable and, best of all, offers a clear plan of possible action. The audience at the National Hospitality Conference 2017 were completely engaged throughout, and many made a point of telling me afterwards how useful, and entertaining, they found Mark's presentation to be. From an organisational point of view, Mark was a pleasure to deal with - absolutely professional and charming in every way.
