What makes Mark Tewksbury the highlight of each event is not his Olympic stories, it’s not his excellence in leadership and or even all of his post-Olympic accomplishments. What continues to make Mark a much in-demand speaker is his dynamic approach: No two keynotes are ever the same because no two audiences are ever the same. Mark invests into each organization by interviewing his clients and to find out what the objectives are for the event. Then, drawing from his vast repertoire of leadership experiences, Mark aligns the best story arc to amplify the client’s message creating a speech that is insightful, impactful and inspiring. Mark’s incredible storytelling, natural speaking ability and engaging style often make him the highlight of the event.
