How he presents

Mark delivers his story from the heart and talks about the highs and lows of having a life changing experience. His motivating style and epic life story uplifts every audience and he never fails to leave anyone inspired.

In Detail

Mark went through hell and back to reach his first Paralympic Games at London 2012, after he broke his back in a near fatal paragliding accident in 2009 and even though he was left with lower leg paralysis and drop foot in both feet, he fought for 12 months to learn to walk again with walking aids and now prides himself as a full time professional Para-cyclist for his country. London 2012 Paralympics was a phenomenal achievement, after only being back on the bike for 18 months after his accident.


Mark's elite mindset and commitment to physical fitness, cycling skills, optimum health and a "never give up" attitude, have all played a part in his epic rise to the top. He now shares all he knows about resilience and peak performance, plus how to win with mindset via online coaching and public speaking.
