The definition of insanity is doing the same things over and over again but expecting different results

Albert Einstein

Hello from me!

Rather than write a lengthy message about me and what I do, I thought I would break with tradition and say hello personally (well, almost).

A quick synopsis:

I believe that people buy from people – always have, always will.

I believe that if we want to change the results we achieve, first we have to change the way we think.

Are you on the “get business/do business” see-saw, or the “need to employ/can’t afford to” see-saw? 

What if there were a different way?

By now you’re either thinking “I like the way this guy thinks” and want to know more, or you’re thinking “I don’t have time” and you’ve jumped straight to “how much does it cost”. If it’s either of the latter, that’s ok, I’m just not for you.

I work with businesses who are open and willing to discuss a different way of thinking that will help them grow their business so they are truly

Where I came from

With a background in international hotel chains and over 20 years starting, building, managing and selling my own businesses, I am well aware of the highs and lows that businesses can face. I don’t have all the answers, but I do have a unique perspective on life and business that could be just what you are looking for – ask anyone that’s around me.

Common challenges I have a solution for

If one or more of these resonate with you, reach out and let me help you.

I would like more business

I spend too much time trying to get new business

I spend too much money trying to get new business

I invest a lot of time/energy in conversion

I don’t have time to attend networking events

I don’t like selling

I can’t clearly identify my target market

I have clients I wish I had never engaged

Everyday there’s just a little bit of drama

I wish my staff loved my business as much as I do

I get referrals but I can’t predict them

I have a financial referral reward system that doesn’t work consistently

The referrals I get are sometimes poor quality

I know something needs to change but I just don’t know what

Life and business are like riding a bicycle. If you don’t keep moving, you will fall off.

People work with me because:

They are truly serious about taking their business to the next level

Their current thinking can’t get them there

They want better quality and more profitable new business opportunities

They want better value from their networking activities

They want to use tested and proven marketing strategies that their competitors can’t have

They have or are willing to make time to implement these proven techniques

They like the way I think and they want what I know

They share my values of: Honesty, Accountability, Reputation, Passion, Selflessness and Openness

What my clients say

If you’re thinking of developing a Referral Marketing Strategy, or if you’re wondering what one is and how it might help develop your business, I’d recommend speaking with Mark. Creating referrals on purpose isn’t something I’d previously considered - Mark’s approach and invaluable insight really adds value not only in terms of thinking through and developing the strategy, but also at a very practical level too. A genuinely nice guy who really goes the extra mile to help drive success for his clients.
Adam Davey
Director at Petaurum Solutions
Working with Mark has had a massive impact on my business. Identifying the different referral networks I am already in and the ones I'd like to join was very eye-opening and has allowed myself to create a detailed strategy that focuses on deepening the business relationships I have with connections across Lincolnshire. Mark has redefined my perception of 'networking' and referral marketing, I'd heavily recommend a coffee with Mark!
Ashley Wilks
Video Producer at Wallbreaker
Mark is a truly invaluable source of business knowledge and experience. Since first meeting him, I have not only felt that I am accomplishing more but also that I am enjoying the process and building many new and meaningful relationships that extend beyond mere business. With Mark's advice and guidance, I have changed my approach to business for the better. I am convinced that the referrals model that Mark uses works and a number of the new friends I have met along the way say the same. I can wholeheartedly recommend Mark if you are looking for new ways to grow your business!

Mark has been a fantastic contact to connect with and his knowledge and experience within networking is abundantly clear. He has been of great assistance with providing useful tips about how to get the most from my networking and how to put myself across in the most effective manner, he has also been very generous with his time. All of this has helped shape how I conduct my networking activities and for that I am very grateful.
