Kate Jones, Marketing Professor, AUT University

As one of the most critical thinking students I have taught in the Bachelor of Business (Marketing) I can recommend Mark as a business person who will ask the really hard questions. This is a difficult skill to develop and is not to be under-appreciated.

Mark has a critical approach to the typical “ways of doing business” and in my view, this approach is one of the stand-out ways of thinking that business needs, especially for businesses faced with twenty-first-century changes.

If you as a business want a person who is unafraid of challenging the status quo, who can see how to improve business processes for better customer experiences, and who brings an intelligent approach to work – you need to contact Mark.
