Unprecedented amount of positive feedback

Thank you for attending our Leadership event last week, I have received an unprecedented amount of positive feedback – with demonstrable use of the 20 seconds of courage concept, which is phenomenal. A number of my peers and I really took a lot away from the session and quotes from your stories can be heard in a number of team conversations which are taking place. I am keen to maintain the momentum and discussions and therefore aim to schedule similar events going forward

Highly inspiring and thought-provoking

Mark recently spoke at our EMEA engineering conference, captivating our diverse and multi-cultural audience from the very first sentence. He has a very engaging way of presenting, highlighting approaches taken by most people and then demonstrating what can be achieved by thinking differently. Mark made a 45 minutes slot feel like five - highly inspiring and thought-provoking.

Darren Cook

Vice President Of Engineering Operations EMEA, Hilton Worldwide

No matter the focus of my Leadership content, most clients want me to talk about the mindset of change for the leaders themselves and with respect to getting team members more on board with change. 

Change could be a big organisational change, or just a change that a team member (or leader) needs to take in how or what they do. In this segment, which is optional, I take them through moving from the mindset of:

"Why it won't work" or “Why I can’t do that” to "How can we make it work" or “How could I be able to do that” attitudes to change.

Also of course that classic "Why do we have to change? I like the way we have always done it"!

This segment always convinces the audience that how they, and their teams, think about change impacts their success and confidence levels. Tying how the mind works back to everyday scenarios and work, and proving there and then in the room, that our mindset and attitude impacts our results and success during change.

In fact, I prove and show, that how our minds work and how we think dictates what we see, hear, think of, and imagine, including the ideas and solutions we come up with and how we can shift that in ourselves and others.

We also cover resilience and confidence, being solution orientated, along with dealing with a common change experience, where things can sometimes get harder before they get much easier or better.

Other areas can include:

Why more leadership and less management is needed to help people through change.

The words to use to get people to change their mindset and be more engaged with change.

Overcoming resistance to change in ourselves and our team members at different stages of the typical change cycle.

Dealing with difficult conversations around change.

Inspiring and motivating your teams despite the chaos and change that may be happening.

Brilliant, just brilliant, exactly what we wanted.

Brilliant, just brilliant, exactly what we wanted. We’ve had nothing but positive feedback from the teams on your Transformational Leadership presentation to our Store Managers. There was so much rich food for thought and your presentation has challenged their thinking in a big way and a positive mind set will definitely underpin our Journey to Growth.

Emma Fox

CEO, The Original Factory Shop

We will certainly be using Mark again.

Mark spoke at our Leadership Team Meeting about the importance of understanding ‘What drives us’, both organisationally and personally. It was a fascinating speech charged with humour, great anecdotes and real life examples of how to get it right and wrong. Mark left the whole team energised and excited about the opportunities ahead. The feedback from the team was excellent and we will certainly be using Mark again.

Christopher Trippick

Head of Communications and External Relations, Aquila ATMS

All talks and sessions are "TAILORED" to the outcome you are looking for from your event. This makes the messages "RELEVANT" to your audience.

With his "NO LECTURE" and "NO POWERPOINT" approach Mark gets the audience thinking, engaged and with just the right amount of laughter, presenting in a way everyone can relate to and BELIEVE! All who hear him speak will walk away knowing that personal CHANGE IS POSSIBLE for them.

With just the right amount of LAUGHTER. His often amusing true stories get the audience thinking “That’s me, I do that!”

Motivational Success Talk to 1,000 People

Feedback from the whole audience was excellent...

We commissioned Mark to speak at our annual conference on transformational leadership. Mark did 2 sessions throughout the day to an audience of 100 Senior Managers and Managers. The feedback from the whole audience was excellent and Mark certainly kept them engaged throughout both sessions. All commented positively and were able to articulate the impact of the sessions and how this would support them to implement changes by creating long term visions of success with their teams through strategic planning, creative thinking and developing strong teams through a range of development pathways, effective communication and inspirational influence.

Leadership Thoughts

Too many Leaders focus most or all their time on Management and very little or no time on Leadership.

Great leadership inspires and motivates people to be part of a team that collaborates and communicates well.

They help their team members and the organisation, by paying attention to the vision, culture, team and people aspect of everything they do.

They are also a coach and mentor to their team members and are constantly helping them to be the best they can be.

Helping their team to work as one team. One that manages through change and problems with a solution mindset approach. A team that works on initiative, is creative and not afraid to put new ideas forward.

They also make sure that everyone knows how the organisation mission, vision and values translate down at the individual team member behaviour level.

I highly recommend Mark as a Keynote Speaker...

Mark Rhodes spoke at the IAPS Heads’ Conference in September. He was thought provoking, amusing and gave the delegates some sound techniques for improving their leadership skills. Heads have already started putting his suggestions into practice with very positive results. I highly recommend Mark as a keynote speaker.

Tania Botting

Vice-Chairman of IAPS (Independent Association of Prep Schools)

I would absolutely book him again, and hope that we can work together again

What can I say? With an audience of slightly jaded construction workers on their first foray into management training I was worried about how a "guest speaker" would land. I needn't have worried. From the moment Mark stood up he caught the attention of the group. Down to earth, so very funny and full of energy, he speaks about mindset and leadership in a thought provoking, honest and simple way. No boring lectures and endless analogies, just easy to understand with messages that stick . Mark is an asset to any event and uses his personal experiences to bring to life the subjects about which he speaks. I would absolutely book him again, and hope that we can work together again.

Mark was able to engage and inspire a large and very diverse group of Managers...

Mark spoke at our annual Manager's Away Day and without hesitation I would recommend his services as a Keynote Speaker . Before the event Mark took time to understand our business, our managers and the event theme to tailor and blend key messages into his his delivery . With wit and real life story telling, Mark was able to engage and inspire a large and very diverse group of managers. He provided insight on how simple adjustments to our mindset can have a positive impact on both personal and business challenges. The managers' feedback was positive and many stated they had learnt something they could put into practise straightaway.

Hit the right note regarding Leadership and Motivation...

Just a quick note of thanks for your talk at our staff meeting. It went down well with the team and hit the right note regarding Motivation and Leadership.

John Ayre

Director, Supply Chain, Jabil

Mark's many topics include...


If you want to add that extra dose of motivation and success to your audience Mark is an expert at doing that. As someone who has had business and career success, gone from shy to confident and from a huge fear of public speaking to doing it as a living, he can deliver the message, ideas and tools that will help your audience to believe in themselves and believe they can do, be and achieve more. As Mark says being successful didn't change him, he changed and then he became successful.


Great Leaders help the people they work with do their best to achieve their personal goals and ambitions whilst they in turn do their best to help the business achieve its goals. In great Leadership a culture that wants to succeed is developed where everyone feels like they are part of the journey and part of a team achieving something special. Great Leaders focus on Vision, Inspiration, Motivation, Team, Culture and Success. How can Mark help your Leaders?


You know how team members or staff don't always seem to be as enthusiastic, engaged, motivated, caring or working as a team as much as you’d like them to be? Or they may appear disconnected, resistant to change and somewhat unproductive? Well, Mark helps solve that. He helps your team realise they are the only ones holding themselves back and how they can change, and that change is for themselves and their benefit. If you have a team you’d like to be more enthusiastic, working together, progressing, achieving and changing then let’s get started.

Mark and his Speaker Fees

Mark isn’t one of those Speakers that lectures your audience making them think “It’s alright for him but I could never do it” – instead Mark has the audience thinking “If he can do it, so can I”

He does this by making everything so simple and easy for people to understand and easy for them to do and presents in a way everyone can relate to and believe.

His talks are also fun with lots of fantastic stories, everyday examples and the audience just go away different –  they go away believing they can do more and they take action whereas previously with most other talks they wouldn’t have done anything as they would have rejected the whole idea of personal change being possible for them.

So many times Mark has audience members coming up to him at the end saying things like “I use to think all this stuff was rubbish but now I get it”

Fees to deliver a talk vary greatly based on location, type of talk or event, date of talk, length of the talk and amount of preparation needed.

Fees can be as low as £1,000 through to £6,000 (or even more) depending on the above factors. Mark can also be with you for your entire event if you prefer and be available to talk personally with audience members during breaks etc. He can also do book signings for some or all of your audience, if you would like this.

Get in touch today for a no obligation discussion with Mark Rhodes and he will be able to confirm the fees and his availability for your event and we can start planning something special.
