Testimonials for Mark Visser
He was a rockstar. So good, I would book him again in a heartbeat. Staff feedback has been off the charts epic.
Rogue & Refined
It is not often that you have the opportunity to test your boundaries at a Conference breakfast. Mark had the ability to capture everyone's attention and keep us on the edge of our seats, the room was so quiet as everyone listened intently. The content was spot on and I have gone back to thinking about his message each day since.
Executive General Manager Global Markets
For me – Mark was the perfect speaker. The first day of the conference was long and technical with a lot of slides and panel discussions. It was so refreshing to have Mark on stage speaking from the heart to kick off Day two. I thank him for his time and thank you for staying around after the actual event to speak to the attendees. They really appreciated it.
Senior Marketing Manager & Corporate Affairs
Thank you for your presentation last Friday at the Conference. I am sure our team has done the same however I wanted to personally reach out and say thank you. After your presentation and over the remaining days of the conference, I sought feedback from my Franchise Partners and they quite were impressed by your presentation. Not so much about the almighty wave you surfed, although massively impressive, more so in the manner you approached the project. My role with the company is to assist with the Franchise Partners business growth and planning and to have your example of applying a business planning/strategy process to a life goal helped connect this message. It also caused me to stop and rethink how I am approaching goals in my professional and personal life as well. One of the core messages you shared that was repeated to me from our group was being ready for opportunity shared via two of your stories i) connecting with your team at the party you nearly didn't attend, and ii) the jet ski saga. I am not kidding, at least ten times one of the two came up in chats with the Franchise Partners. I am keen to see this play out in their business planning and client engagement strategies. Thank you again for your presentation. I look forward to seeing your next project you shared briefly at the end. Best wishes for success.

The audience was spell-bound watching some of his video clips. Mark is a driven motivator and engages warmly with guests at all levels. We would highly recommend Mark to any event organiser or group wanting a big impact keynote speaker.
Bank of Queensland
One of the best keynote speakers we have ever had! Mark captured the audience and delivered a powerful message that we can all relate to in the corporate world.
An unexpected speaker. Mark’s story linked so well to what we aspire to and gives a different perspective on the importance of team work, focus on the challenge, and being your best. We booked Mark for 4 consecutive events.
Thoroughly entertaining, everyone loved it, with plenty of chatter later around the bar and in the office today. Lots of take homes for all of us irrespective of our role in the business which was excellent as so many professional speakers only focus on the sales team, leaving the rest of us bored!
McGrath Real Estate
Mark had a wonderful session with the group and interacted with all of them at the level they needed. The presentation was bang on and it really connected for our kids on all levels. I had overheard so many different parents, athletes and coaches chatting about how great it was. An unbelievable opportunity for us all to listen and meet him.
I was really impressed; it had the hair on the back of my neck standing up!
The Chia Co
Thanks so much for making our event such a success. The team all loved Mark’s story and the key messages were totally aligned to our overall theme for the day. We loved having Mark at dinner also, was really great of him to make the time.
