Conquering Life’s Stage Fright: Three Steps to Top Performance

This presentation is like a rock show disguised as a keynote with live drumming, sticky powerful content, interactive drumming with the audience and even jam sessions with the C-Suite! Everyone operates with some degree of risk…so there will be some degree of fear. Mark addresses this issue by invigorating his audiences with world-class entertainment, road stories and three core concepts that give audiences the blueprint to confident peak performance in their professional and personal lives.

Focus: Innovation, Performance, Communication, Sales, Leadership, Team Building, Breaking

 

Harnessing the Rhythm of Teams

An energetic, interactive and anecdotal presentation that gives audiences an experience of the evolution of collaboration through truly unique processes that feature rhythm, rock & roll and performance.

Focus:Individual and Team Top Performance, Sales/Presenting, Communication, Innovation

 

Hacking the ROCKSTAR Mindset

Using the metaphor of music and stories of world-class performers, Mark guides his audience through entertaining interactive processes and sticky content (as only a rock & roll drummer can do) to decode how one can take the success secrets of the stars and apply them to every day business directives.

Focus: Innovation, Communication, Sales/Presenting, Leadership, Individual and Team Top Performance

 

ADJUNCT PROGRAM (2 Hours, Half Day and Full Day): Interactive Song-writing and Performance-

Keynote (above) plus Mark breaks the entire group into small ‘bands,’ coaching everyone through rewriting lyrics to famous songs, and having each ‘band’ perform with their lyrics displayed for others to enjoy and support. Participants learn to break through barriers that have held them back from reaching their true potential.

Focus: Performance, Communication, Team Building, Peak Performance, Leadership, Entertainmen

Chief Executive Officer Aviation Capital Group

Mark...what a great event you created for all at the ACG Company Retreat last week! You blew the roof off the retreat with rock music/drumming and a message that not only rocked but also tied into our retreat theme. The team here is still buzzing.

David

Hi Mark We really appreciate the effort and risk you took to come and speak to our group. As I have mentioned before, you were probably the single best speaker we have had for the retreat! I am still getting great feedback about your session. And remember we have some tough critics. But more importantly you are a humble, caring and giving person and it really comes through! Let's keep in touch.

Retail Operations Johnson & Johnson

Mark You were Awesome!! The colleagues have not stopped raving about you - the material & your message.
