A hugely engaging speaker, Mark has over fifteen years of experience on stage, at conferences, within businesses and to after-dinner audiences. Pulling on his career as an athlete, as well as his experience as a BBC broadcaster, Mark is valued for his ability to translate record breaking performance and strategy planning to a wide range of business audiences. Mark’s background in economics and as an investor in start-up businesses brings a depth of experience to his talks, over and above the sporting metaphors.

Over 100 countries, tens of documentaries and 6 books, Mark has a huge range of expedition experience, however is best known for cycling around the World and still holds the Guinness World record.  Cycling 18,000 miles in 78 days, 10 years after his first world circumnavigation, averaging 240 miles per day, Mark pushed himself to the limit of human endurance whilst leading a team of 40. This project redefined the limits of human endurance, breaking the previous record by 37%, but crucially beating their target by 1.44%. Such purpose, planning and execution is at the heart of Mark’s talks.
