MISSION 8848 One Journey | One Mountain | One million Voices


Mark Wood is an engaging and authentic speaker who presented to around thirty business owners and directors as part of our leadership development programme, called great200Leaders. The theme was “extreme leadership” and Mark had the audience spellbound with a mixture of storytelling, anecdotes, pictures and videos. Our audience thoroughly enjoyed the Q&A session too. Mark Wood has a real edge to his talks.
