His speeches include –
• High-Performance Teamwork – A Formula One team has to design, manufacture, develop and operate a high-performance vehicle which combines technologies from aerospace,
• Data-Driven Performance – More than any other sport, Formula One has embraced a data-driven business culture, particularly as regards its near-obsession with marginal gains and continuous improvement.
• Safety & Risk Management- Safety is a first order priority in Formula One and the last 25 years have seen a profound change to how the sport manages risk.
• Transition & Transformation -Business models break, new ones develop, technology evolves, regulations are revised, and customers alter buying habit
“Mark was very well received on our management event focussing on leadership. His experience in Formula One related very well in terms of the issues concerning team building, motivation and having a clear vision for the organisation.”
