After quitting his job at age 23 so that he didn't have to work for people with whom he didn't want to share a water cooler any longer, Mark decided to try his hand at digital product development and began working with some of the UK's biggest organisations, including the NHS, JCB and the Ministry of Defence.
But that wasn't enough, he struggled with the idea of having a "boss" and the stifling feeling that brought with it. Mark decided after a few years as a freelance digital consultant that the only way to actually control his own lifestyle was to work truly for himself, on things that he loves.
So, in 2008 he set up his first "real" business. Obviously, in 2008 that was a web design business.
Since then, Mark has gone on to create a globally successful design agency, work on two tech startups with some serious stories to tell and create a personal brand that has resulted in an audience of worldwide fans who appreciate his "no BS" attitude and straight-talking demeanour.
A regular speaker across the world at tech, business and podcast events, particularly in the United States. A straight-talking, no BS millennial speaker, Mark talks on podcasting, the podcasting industry, tech product development, productivity, startups, work/life balance, personal branding, user experience and all aspects of modern marketing.
Mark is co-founder of podcast hosting, analytics & distribution platform (Captivate.fm), the world's #1 managed WordPress platform for podcasters (Podcast Websites) & podcast interaction tech, Poductivity.
Mark is currently only undertaking selected speaking engagements in order to focus on the development of Captivate, the world's only growth-oriented podcast hosting, distribution & monetisation platform.
