An engineer by trade at British Aerospace, Mark graduated with an HNC from Guildford College in the United Kingdom.

1. Integrity - do what you say you are going to do, and always do the right thing even if it doesn't directly benefit you.
2. Courage - to accept where your business is today directly reflects your abilities. So, you've got to have the courage to ask yourself the tough questions about what you need to change to get to where you want to go. As Marshall Goldsmith said in the title of his book, "What got you here won't get you there," so you've got to operate with courage understanding your current abilities very often need to grow and be developed.
3. Humility - operate with humility, and I check my ego every day. The minute I think I know something, it becomes the enemy of learning. Humility is the mental muscle or doorway to curiosity and being open-minded and learning.
My past business experience would suggest that I have something to offer small business owners. After two decades of working in a Fortune 200 company, I was one of four founding executives of a start-up that in just over ten years, was over $100 million in annual revenues and traded on five continents. Since leaving in 2009, I have built a successful consultancy that is dedicated to the pursuit of improving people, processes, and strategic planning. I'm a certified SCC Leadership coach and Mindvalley Life Coach.
I have been the coach for the Emerging Leaders Program for the past four years, and it's my way of giving back to smaller business owners that typically can't hire a consultant.
I currently coach executives with clients in the US, Europe, and Asia. See testimonials at https://www.markcoaching.com/
