The Keynote
Where else would you find the combination of a double amputee, an awarded winemaker, a medalist at the Paralympics, a business creator, a scientist, a philanthropist, a life long mountaineer and the only double amputee to have climbed to the roof of the world, the summit of achievement - Mount Everest.
This is the ultimate mix of experience and inspiration. Mark can accurately tailor the keynote to reflect your exact theme, the skill he is renown for.
Time                     20 – 90 minutes                
Numbers              5 – 3500 pax
