Inspirational conference and keynote speaker, Mark Denton, joined us at Brighton & Hove Albion’s Amex Stadium for Network Albion, The Ageas Bowl for Network Hampshire, Twickenham Stadium for Twickenham Business Club, the Kia Oval for Network Oval and Fratton Park in Portsmouth!

Mark led a diverse team of amateurs to success in the BT Global Challenge Round the world Yacht Race. However the route to that achievement was not straightforward, and Mark shared his perspective on the importance of challenging our own mindset when not getting the results that you need. This was a pivotal lesson he learnt halfway round the world when languishing down in 7th place. So, he sought help from his crew, asking them to challenge how the team was operating and asking their opinion for ways to improve. The ideas came thick and fast, many that Mark would never have thought of, and putting these into action they went out and won the next leg by 25 seconds after 7 days at sea!

As well as being an in-demand speaker, Mark spends the rest of his time at the helm of ‘Max VMG’ – an award-winning consultancy defined by five key service lines that are essential for any organisation, team or individual to create and develop in order to thrive in the 21st century: Compelling Purpose, Conducive Culture, Courageous Leadership, Potent Teams and the red thread that runs through them all – Transition Effectiveness.
