Mark’s fairytale journey from Queanbeyan kid to world class athlete is an enthralling and entertaining story, full of inspiration and amusing anecdotes. It’s a story that Mark turned into an International best-selling autobiography entitled Aussie Grit and is now sharing with audiences as an after-dinner, keynote, fire-side and motivational speaker.
Throughout his racing career, for his team and personal sponsors, Mark has participated in countless Q&A sessions, company talks, promotional and marketing event days and media interviews and is known for being a consummate professional and loyal ambassador. His ability to step into any environment and develop an easy rapport with audiences large and small is one of his best assets as an orator.
The cut-throat and high-risk world of Formula One and over twenty years of media scrutiny and competition and within high-pressure team environments has given Mark a wealth of experience to draw upon and impart. His knowledge of what it takes to be successful as well as coping with difficulty and disappointment parallels as well with corporate environments as it does with troubled youths.
Mark has worked with a large array of clients for events ranging from keynote talks and Q&A panels to intimate VIP and fireside events. Corporate giants such as Google, Skyscanner and ASX and major retailers such as Harvey Norman, Vodafone and Howdens have engaged Mark to deliver insightful and humourous conference talks. Mark was invited to present at the prestigious Oxford Union in 2015 and has twice sold out ticketed events at Raymond Blanc’s Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons restaurant.
Global companies such as Cheniere looking to offer VIP experiences at Grands Prix have selected Mark to host their guests for his unique insight, expert opinion and personable nature. For the same reason Mark has often made appearances at private race weekend events, delivering talks and mingling with guests as they soak up the atmosphere.
Through his relationship with Porsche Mark has participated in and hosted numerous corporate VIP or private track experience days globally. He has also been a regular special guest at the Porsche Experience Centre Silverstone for their Get Race Fit events – focusing on driver fitness and fitness education with their human performance team.
In 2014 and 2015, the Yas Marina Circuit group chose Mark to be their event ambassador, commissioning him to promote the race by participating in media, talks and client meet & greets in the build-up and during the race weekend.
