Mark specialises in combining performance enhancement at work with resilience and well-being. A focus on performance improvement alone can have the desired effect in the short term, but it can also lead challenges in the long term. By combining performance enhancement and well-being, he can help improve the performance of individuals and teams, in the short and the long-term – helping to improve resilience, employee engagement, retention, and business success.

Prior to forming Reach Remarkable, Mark spent 20+ years in delivery and leadership at Microsoft, and so has witnessed the needs and challenges of modern business first hand. That experience has informed his practice in combining the practicalities of work life, with the leading edge scientific evidence in human development and well-being.

Strengths

Mark’s key strengths include curiosity, judgement, love of learning, hope and honesty. When it comes to his practice, he loves to understand the end goal and the organisational culture, and to design solutions that are both practical and grounded in science, while offering a creative and relevant experience.

The things that many of us desire in life, good relationships, health, successful activities, meaning, work we love, and yes, even happiness can all by impacted by interventions examined through positive psychology.
