Mark’s keynote and workshop topics include:
The Go Zone – focusses on the importance of resilience and doing things that we know we should do but don’t want to do. Teaches audiences about time management, work effectiveness, ageing well and how to get the most out of life
Embracing Change – demonstrates how change is inevitable and when we embrace it we can reap the rewards it brings. Exchanging out the ideas of denial and resistance with adjustment and acceptance for a brighter outlook on change and seeing it as a positive.
Steps to Resilience – teaches audiences, especially those with corporate backgrounds, the importance of recovery and how extended periods of stress can cause individuals to burn out and not work at their optimum level.
Ideal Performance State - consists of 10 factors with three subsections that participants rank themselves with. Many participants score in the lower bracket but realistically need to score 24 out of 30 or higher. Every individual is encouraged to choose two elements they can take immediate action on, and two other elements that will require more effort to reach. All thirty of the IPS elements are achievable and within reach but some require more effort than others.
