Mark has worked with individuals, teams and whole organisations and their professional development for fifteen years. His work is grounded in practical experience, having spent over twenty years in merchant and investment banking roles (with six years at chief executive level). He combines this deep business experience with contemporary leadership development thinking and his psychotherapeutic training in his work.
He partners with his clients in a way that is both personal and professional such that both the outcome and the process of reaching that outcome are rich learning experiences and generate sustained and meaningful development.
Clients often report how easily they formed a trusting working relationship with Mark that supported them to explore issues at depth that in turn enabled them to gain valuable, practical insights that lifted performance and shifted unproductive dynamics.
With program design informed by appropriate discovery Mark’s work is experiential and conversational. He is particularly interested in assisting clients to develop their management and leadership capacities and the interpersonal aspects of these skills.
Mark breeds Clydesdale horses on his property in the Macedon Ranges.
