What Leaders Say About Mark
Mark just spoke to a room full of our top performers. He brought in the concepts for long term success from many global business leaders, put the ideas into real world context - how each person interacts with our brokers and agents--he wove it all together beautifully. You could see in everyone's faces that it was a great event, something that they will remember.
Matthew Kirk, SVP Sales and Distribution, The Hartford
"Mark Thompson brilliantly inspired Suzuki Maruti global executives and suppliers about quality." -R.C.Bargava, Chairman, India's #1 Automaker
We can't thank you enough for the incredibly dynamic and thought-provoking presentation for a standing room only session at the American Chamber of Commerce. We look forward to seeing you on a future trip to Singapore!
Camille Dawson | Counselor for Public Affairs,
U.S. Embassy Singapore, United States State Department
Thanks Mark, my absolute honor to meet you and I am so glad we had your expertise to rely on. You carried the day and the evening!!
Bill Brown, Manager, Phillip66
Very pleased to have met you at the PM conference as well. They picked the perfect speaker for the event as you clearly understand portfolio, program, and (especially) project management. Portfolio and program management define and monitor the delivery of value and project management provides the legs to perform delivery.
Many speakers don't fully understand the concepts and it is telling in their presentations. You hit it right on the head. Very well done and very informative message.
Brian Grafsgaard; Project Management Institute
It was my pleasure participating in your extremely well-received visit here in Costa Rica. I am so impressed with the work your daughter is doing and she, like so many young people I meet, give me faith in the future. Thanks again for the time and energy you dedicated to your many events here in Costa Rica.
John Reed Payne; Economic Officer, U.S. Embassy San Jose, Costa Rica
We really enjoyed your presentation. Great insights for our leaders as we transform the entertainment industry!
Stephanie Bird; Executive Director Chief of Staff, AT&T
Thanks for your note and more importantly your time this past week in Charlotte. Your keynote was wonderful and I found very actionable - your 6 points and the 3 P's were spot on. I did like the connection back to the old Jim Collins book. We used that book at BofA - many of those companies have faded away and it was good to hear the "why".
I love the interviews and appreciate you sending them along. I will definitely listen to over the coming week.
If there is anything I can do for you please let me know and have a great week!
Patrick Condon; Chief Risk Officer - Individual Financial Services, TIAA-CREF
It was wonderful to have you keynote our Leadership Summit. Thanks for your partnership throughout the process and your phenomenal delivery yesterday!
Karen Mengle; Director, Org Development & Effectiveness | Human Resources, TIAA-CREF | Financial Services
It's a very cold, kind of a snowy February day, but Mark Thompson came in and just warmed up the crowd like crazy. We had a great inspirational talk, a really great topper to our program. It just really flowed in with our messaging, really got everything to hang together on the team that we created, and I gotta tell you, people are really jacked up and it was a perfect capper to the program. So, Mark, thank you for coming out and making a difference with Delphi. You really made it a special time for us.
Chris Preuss, Head of Corporate Communications, Delphi Automotive
I was your lone RioPort customer at the PMI presentation in Philly! Success: Sustainable results, not just merely replicable. I really enjoyed your presentation, many of your points are in alignment with my personal beliefs… I’m going to recommend you as a speaker at our next client event!
Michael Yinger; RPO Delivery Lead, AON Hewitt
Thank you for leading such an inspiring talk today at our WeConnect event! I loved your passion and energy that infused the room and was such a powerful ending to a great event!
Manager, HP Shared Services Global Operations
I wanted to once again thank you for taking the time to speak to our group yesterday in ATL. You are a truly gifted individual and are certainly doing what you love, and in this day and age, that's quite an accomplishment.
Mike Rossi, President at Medallion Financial Distributors
Standing Ovation for Mark Thompson @Berkshire HathawayHS
Thank you so much Mark!!!! You were absolutely fantastic!!!
Mark was fantastic today! From the first introductory call where he asked us personalized questions to today's flawless execution--Mark was a true pro and a real joy to work with. He engaged the audience, created a custom presentation, and got the crowd energized for the day. We just couldn't have asked for a better keynote speaker for Connect 2014!
Katie Sieck, Director of Marketing, North America
Many thanks for taking the trouble to send our photo with Sir Ken Robinson. The presentation you gave was really inspiring and it was great to have the chance to discuss with you later. I'm looking forward to reading the book!
Nigel Turner, Director, Global Sales Development, Sony Mobile Communications
Thank you for the terrific presentation, upbeat message, key advice with analysis of the 10Xs and best tie into Gartner research from any keynote speaker.
Bart Stanco, VP, Executive Partner, Gartner
Thank you for a very insightful presentation. As the Global SVP of Cisco Consulting, I would be extremely interested in receiving your market research.
Martin McPhee, Global SVP, Cisco Consulting
After the successful conclusion of the 10th INSME Annual Meeting and Forum, Khalifa Fund for Enterprise Development would like to extend its deepest thanks and appreciation to your good self. Your vast expertise and valuable contribution truly enriched the forum.

Ibrahim Ahmed Al Mansoori , Chief Operations Officer
You were a HIT! Thanks so much for joining us and giving us your great inspiration advice. We appreciated your style and message.
Mary Rhinehard, CEO, Johns Mansville, a Berkshire Hathaway Company
I found it fascinating to hear your insights from such a wide range of successful businesses, and inspiring to see and hear what is possible when you get the mix right. I am convinced we are on the cusp of a transformation in healthcare with the convergence of science and technology. The exciting element for me is the combination of investing to help patients and navigating the commercialisation of that transformation.
Colin Williams, Director, Product Strategy, Life Sciences at Thomson Reuters
It was a pleasure watching your talk. I have already used one of your quotes this week. "If you were to rebuild today, would you rebuild the same way?" In conjunction with the provocative statements by Peter Sondergard about digital competition, this was very thought provoking for my client.
Andrew (A.J.) Goldsmith, Executive Partner, Gartner Executive Programs
Everything went great and it ended with a standing ovation! The presentation ran well and Mark's messaging aligned perfectly with our conference agenda.
Janice R. VandenHeuvel, Event Manager, Delphi Corporation
Mark, thanks for the presentation today. One area that really impacted me (not that there was just one) was how valuable we, as council members, are in what we do each day. Sometimes when we get too tactical or it feels like we are grinding, it is energizing to obtain another perspective--especially from an individual who has and continues to play in the big leagues.
Steve Moran, Managing Director, JLL
We loved having you with us in Chicago last week! Thanks for sharing your passion and experience with our group. Looking at 2,000 conference members, I think you may have even recruited a few adventurers for Sir Richard's space travels!
Shelly Price, Event Manager, Senior Content Analyst, Education and Events
Mark is one of the few speakers I've encountered who is one of the true greats. Yet, even with all of his phenomenal achievements, on and off the platform, he is a genuinely down-to-earth human being. When you are in his presence you know he is there for one purpose...you and your organization.
Nancy Vogl, Founder, Nancy Vogl Speakers Bureau
Thank you so much for speaking during the PDS Conference today. You were amazing! I wish more people realized the motivating factor humble beginnings produce. If I'm correct, you, Steve Jobs and Richard Branson have similar starts in life plus faced dyslexia. It helps to know dyslexics can succeed in spite of the daily social challenges.
Robbie Glasser, General Manager, Pharmacy Development Services
Mark has a gift for understanding what leaders need to know about running a business--and how to create Built to Last relationships with customers.
Prof. Cliff Nass, Stanford University
Thank you for your amazing session last week in New Orleans! Credit Unions from across the US will be more energized and ready to take action. I loved your piece on Engagement...Play to be remembered; Let death be your advisor; Determine the legacy. And Teamwork...Scale your business; How can I scale the business if I do it all? Loved it all. Please keep in touch- would love to work with you again.
Brandi Stankovic, Ed.D.; Mitchell, Stankovic, and Associates

I had the great pleasure of listening to you during your recent visit to Abu Dhabi. First, I would like to thank you again for your inspiring words. Your presentation really lifted my entrepreneurial spirit.
Marco Fluegel, Deputy Director, Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems
Loved your presentation you gave at the PEMA Professional Association meeting last week in Puerto Vallarta. Being one of only two Canadian members of the group we have our own special challenges to deal with. One change I am going to make immediately is to move Engineering in with Sales, I have been putting it off but hearing your comments about it, I must do it now. Thank you!
Peter Lorenz, President, Lorenz Conveying Products
Spectacular as always!!! Truly you were.
The message was exactly what was needed...very much aligned with what I'm 'trying' to communicate...I simply don't have your ability to be as compelling!!!
Richard McIntyre, Managing Director & Head, Scotia Private Client Group
