The Third C in Success
Mark’s ‘Third C in Success’ keynote differs greatly from an overcoming adversity or survival against the odds theme, rather it is a practical, funny and inspirational guide to becoming more successful in your life, whatever your industry or life stage. The 45-60 minute keynote has 3 phases. The first is to explain what makes Mark successful (Mark’s favourite part!). The second is for each member of the audience to picture what success would be for them and the final stage is to use the 3Cs formula to make it reality. Full of Mark’s trademark humour, engaging style and anecdotes from the world of sport and business, ‘The Third C in Success’ is a great open or close for any conference or event. By the way, can you guess and do you use the 3Cs in your life?
