Speech Descriptions

This is a humorous approach to a very serious subject and emphasizes that creativity is the key component in managing change. Learn change theory and creative exercises in this upbeat, fast paced program that will leave you laughing and leave you with change management skills.


Stressed out? Lethargic? Burned out? This program will help you solve those ills by learning five behaviors that will help balance your life and by learning  techniques to deal with your biggest stressor…PEOPLE! This keynote is high on content AND hilarity.


This light and lively program will help you see the customer’s perspective and examines issues like credibility, reliability, and responsiveness.  You’ll understand the myths of customer service and see how to move your customers beyond satisfaction to advocacy.


This program is an entertaining reminder of the continual shift agriculture must make to stay competitive and vibrant.  As sentimentalists, it’s sometimes difficult for agriculture to give up on tradition, but not changing is no longer an option.  Listen and laugh as Mark takes you through the technology and communication and coalition adaptations to keep agriculture alive and well.  Learn how an active minority can prevail over an apathetic majority.


Adding humor (actually mirth) to your work and life can have profound economic benefits as well as just making it more fun. Learn the value of a good sense of humor and how to improve yours in this outrageously funny, yet very practical program.


This is clean stand-up comedy that’s perfect for after dinner entertainment or as a change of pace. Sit back and hold your sides as we take a zany, offbeat look at everyday life. A non-stop, rollicking ride of humor you’ll be quoting for a very long time.


Mark can provide comedic professionalism as the emcee for your program OR he can pose as an official in some capacity. He has impersonated a Professor, IRS Examiner, Jeweler, Legislator, Salesperson, and Runway Model as he fumbled and bumbled through company doublespeak. After the spoof is revealed, he transitions into one of the above programs.

Mark was AWESOME!! We had nothing but positive feedback from our group about him. I asked several people at cocktail hour that evening what they thought. Some comments were: he was great; he was funny; it was nice to have someone that could be humorous without being raunchy; his talk fit in with our Chairman which was a message about change and how people don’t typically like to change.

Thanks again for your sessions at our Leadership Conferences. You did such a fantastic job at all our events. Our people said you were by far the best guest speaker we have ever had. It’s so hard to find a content filled program that is entertaining…but you made it look easy! Thanks again for the laughs and the great information.

You were a hit at our Awards Program Lunch and everyone raved about your program. You were absolutely hilarious. And I really appreciate you tying your message of change to the speaker from the previous day. In all my years of hiring speakers, I have to say unequivocally you were the best.

“Mark will bring down the house with his clever stories and his great message. Plus he took the time to visit with the audience and make them laugh before and after the meeting which was as memorable as his keynote remarks. Great value, great speaker!”
