Leadership is an exciting privilege but it can also be a demanding and lonely journey

  • Are you facing ambiguity and complexity and need to make tough choices?

  • Are you clear on what makes you special and how to bring that to leadership?

  • Do you feel the pressure to ‘get it right' or ‘to have the answers’?

  • Have things got out of balance and you want to focus on what matters?

  • Are you struggling to unlock the potential within your leadership team or organisation?

Co-founder - Salt & Light Coaching

I am an experienced CEO and strategy consultant with more than 25 years of leadership experience, most recently leading teams within a rapidly growing global consulting firm, where I also got to work with hundreds of leaders and executives around the globe. I founded Salt & Light because I believe true leaders emerge when they tap into their whole person - their unique calling, strengths, skills, beliefs, style, good bits and even the quirks and ‘broken’ bits.

Mark has supported our team through group and individual coaching. The difference in the team as a result has been profound. He is adept at skilfully assessing the root cause of what someone is saying and supporting them to come to the same realisation as independently as possible. He provides a perfect balance of personal experience and humour, alongside empathy and listening. The way he has communicated and energised the team has been remarkable.
