He has sat on various Boards, led global transformations and built new business models that have provided superior capability and competitive advantage. Mark has chaired business leader forums across 15 countries and has been coach and mentor to business leaders in 20 different countries.

This has reinforced, repeatedly, how much benefit senior people can gain from stepping back and being challenged by peers to think differently – to run better businesses and improve their lives in an increasingly challenging world.

Mark was therefore delighted to be invited to become a Vistage Group Chair, combining Vistage’s purpose and impact with his own passions and skills. The core values of trust, care, challenge and growth particularly resonate with him, given how critical these are for enabling better leaders, better decisions and better results.

His new CEO/MD business coaching group is for the chief decision-makers of £2m+ businesses in Norfolk. Members are diverse in perspective, young at heart, and united in their open mindedness, desire to create longlasting success, and belief that this requires the challenge and help of others.

If this describes you, and you think Vistage might help you become a better leader and your business be more successful, please contact Mark to discuss. He is holding a number of local events in the near future, providing an ideal time to discover the power of a Vistage group.
