Full Presenter Profile & Bio
As sports presenter for The ABC and Network 10 and radio host at Nova Entertainment, Mark Aiston is a familiar face and voice to most Australians and he has graced our T.V. screens and radios for many years now. However, unbeknownst to many of us, Mark has been battling mental illness and addiction for much of his life.
In 2019, Mark spent three months in rehab. Through hard work and huge support from his family, Mark was able to embark on a journey towards solid recovery. Since his time at The Hader Clinic, Mark has been clean – no drugs or alcohol since.
Mark’s story is one he and his family hold close to their hearts, and he is seeking to share it with others – to help those who are struggling fight their battles. Mark speaks completely openly about his spiral downward and his hike back up the mountain towards recovery. He speaks from his heart with a tell all talk, striving to prevent others from falling into the same pit he did.
Mark is honest. He’ll never say that his addiction has been completely conquered, or that the road to recovery is an easy feat, but he knows the value in speaking his imperfect story. He has an enormous amount of willpower, and he seeks to achieve nothing but to make a difference in the lives of those willing to listen.
Mark is a keynote speaker on these topics and is also a popular corporate host. His professionalism, humour and wit are traits that come easy to Mark. He is a captivating speaker available for bookings now.
