Mark is probably the best coach I've worked with in my 30 year sales & marketing career. He sets high expectations and has the ability to get the very best out of a team. He is very open, trusting and inclusive and above all, very supportive; all the characteristics of a top coach and mentor. He possesses a wealth of both strategic and tactical tools and certainly taught this old dog some new tricks!Neal Hill - Sales & Marketing Consultant
