We engaged Mark to deliver the last session on the last day of 3 day APJ event, and he had the audience hooked from the beginning; in the end he had people queuing to meet him in person. Mark’s passion is contagious, he is inspiring, and at the same time he is incredibly humble. He conveys his message and story in a way that transcends industry, language and culture, and is relevant for all of us, both professionally and personally. I am privileged that we can continue to work with Mark, and in doing so we are giving others the chance to be inspired to push beyond their own boundaries. SAP
