Business Speaker

Since his retire­ment from the NBA, Mark has focused his ener­gy and efforts on his suc­cess as a busi­ness speak­er. Mark’s speak­ing pro­grams empha­size busi­ness top­ics that help your team work togeth­er bet­ter and that result in high­er pro­duc­tiv­i­ty as a unit.

Being in the NBA for over a decade taught Mark how to be a pro­fes­sion­al and how to skill­ful­ly com­mu­ni­cate, traits cru­cial to the busi­ness world.  As a pro­fes­sion­al busi­ness speak­er, it is Mark’s pas­sion to share these skills with cor­po­ra­tions and indus­try leaders.

There are numer­ous aspects of being a pro­fes­sion­al bas­ket­ball play­er that relate to being a high­ly pro­duc­tive mem­ber of a cor­po­ra­tion. This is some­thing Mark teach­es through his work as a busi­ness speaker.

A few of the cor­re­la­tions of being a pro­fes­sion­al ath­lete and a pro­fes­sion­al busi­ness leader are punc­tu­al­i­ty, appro­pri­ate attire, and under­stand­ing your role in a giv­en envi­ron­ment. As a busi­ness speak­er, Mark address­es this idea with his own actions by being on time and ready to go.

No Excuses

Anoth­er aspect of being a pro­fes­sion­al is not mak­ing excus­es. While there are cer­tain chal­lenges in life that detour us from our work, many of the dis­trac­tions cause us to not be as pros­per­ous as pos­si­ble are the excus­es we make for our­selves. As a busi­ness speak­er Mark fre­quent­ly hears about cor­po­ra­tions hav­ing prob­lems with excuse mak­ers on their team. They hire Mark to teach their team accountability.

Anoth­er les­son learned dur­ing his career as a pro­fes­sion­al bas­ket­ball play­er, that he con­tin­ues to imple­ment in his pro­gram as a busi­ness speak­er, is the impor­tance of know­ing how to prop­er­ly com­mu­ni­cate with your peers. Clear com­mu­ni­ca­tion will help you get a bet­ter under­stand­ing of what you need to do, how to do it, when it must be done, etc.

Know What is Expected of You

As an employ­ee it is cru­cial to know exact­ly what is expect­ed of you. Many peo­ple sim­ply make assump­tions about what oth­ers expect from them, both in busi­ness set­tings and in life. As a busi­ness speak­er, Mark gives you tips on how to clear lines of com­mu­ni­ca­tion and get a bet­ter under­stand­ing of what those around you need you to do.

Speaking to Your Team

It is vital to know what is expect­ed of you rather than just mak­ing assump­tions. Have you ever been dri­ving for a long time, think­ing you were head­ing the right direc­tion, only to find out you were on the com­plete­ly wrong road? It is not a good feel­ing. In the busi­ness world it means loss of time, loss of mon­ey and pos­si­bly even loss of a job. As a busi­ness speak­er, Mark shows cor­po­ra­tions and busi­ness lead­ers how to avoid these mistakes.
