Hi, I'm Mark

Since September 2018 I’ve been one of the ‘mentors’ (coaches) on the inspiring www.cocoonprogram.com (‘.Cocoon’) in Estonia for startup and early-stage business founders. One of the mentees I worked with for 12 months, Ansis Lipenitis, changed direction completely and became the visionary CEO of .Cocoon. For me it’s the best feeling in the world to play a key part in someone’s personal growth like this.

.Cocoon and I share the same philosophy. We believe passionately that the purpose of any business is to develop the people within it, not the other way round. My core operating principles include the need for successful businesses to have a compelling purpose beyond profit, the need to have fun and passion in business, a commitment to change for the better those aspects of the world I touch, and a focus on employER (founder) wholeness, which goes beyond mental health and wellbeing.

In 2020 I was honoured to be chosen by leading Estonian investment house and business accelerator www.superangel.io as one of just three coaches for startups and scaleups. For those who don’t know, Estonia is regarded by many as the Silicon Valley of Northern Europe – it has the greatest number of unicorns per head of population of any country in the world.

I’ve had nearly 40 years’ experience in business, and I'm certain the best is yet to come. I cut my teeth as a leader in my late-20s/early-30s building a team and running a high growth business for five years in the United States – it was heady mix of joy and a baptism of fire!

My own compelling purpose is to inspire and enable leaders and teams to achieve worthy goals, and to be their best, happiest, healthiest, and most connected. If that sounds right for you, let’s have a virtual coffee and explore how I might help you along the way…
