On a personal note, Mark has been struck by lightning twice, he has found five four-leafed clovers (so far), and estimates that he has spent more than five months of his life (so far) sitting inside a steel tube hurtling through the air at 800 kph as he has criss-crossed the globe on his travels.

Mark lives with his beautiful wife and son in Melbourne’s outer east, and counts his time travelling and delivering programs with groups all over the world as some of the most rewarding and funnest times of his life.
