Mark is a polished motivational speaker, and has chatted to thousands of delegates over the past few years. His 40 minute talk entitled Beyond the Baldness is well suited to conferences and functions which are themed around reaching your goals, whether it be at work or in your personal life.
At the age of 18 Mark was diagnosed with testicular cancer, which spread to his lungs and kidneys. Mark’s inspirational story is anecdotal and humorous and reveals how cancer persuaded him to give up his training as a chartered accountant and follow his dream of being on radio and television.
His story is a personal and poignant account of his journey, motivating anyone listening to follow their dream whatever it may be, whether in the workplace or in their personal life. He also uses the public platform to educate both young and old on early cancer detection, and should the disease affect you, how to find the strength to overcome it. He also touches on his recent heart attack, and the signs you should be looking out for.
