Mark infus­es his “Four Com­mit­ments of a Win­ning Team” with his per­son­al sto­ry of obscu­ri­ty-to-great­ness
in a way that engages and res­onates with ‘reg­u­lar’ peo­ple.”

The points you made, and the won­der­ful way those points were so ground­ed in your expe­ri­ence play­ing in the NBA at such a high lev­el for so many years, were so valu­able to us here at UBI, as we are very com­mit­ted to being a cohe­sive and effec­tive team.”
Scott Shields ~ Uni­ver­sal Busi­ness Insurance

Your pre­sen­ta­tion and life sto­ry, com­bined with your expe­ri­ence work­ing with numer­ous orga­ni­za­tions,
large and small, have helped to keep us focused on key objec­tives that will allow us to deliv­er
on our man­date in sup­port of con­trac­tors and work­ers in Ontario’s union­ized ICI con­struc­tion sec­tor.”
