Applause goes out to Mark Matthews! I’ve had the pleasure to hear Mark speak now a number of times at events, about his companies journey and more importantly about his own personal journey in business. I find each and every time Mark’s content, direction and delivery exceptional, enthralling and informative, and always leave with a clear direction. Every aspect fills you with belief that you too can take those same steps to making a successful transition to a better future. We are at the early stages of our journey at Holistic IT, but Mark’s understanding and ‘real life’ experience with ‘Traction’ is helping our business already. I would highly recommend that if you haven’t already to engage with Mark at one of his upcoming events or to book him for you

Mark speaks from the heart. His passion for running a business well is obvious and infectious. We all know that management is far from easy, but Mark explains simple steps to get you started on the journey to understanding and running your business better. 
Everything he talks about he can support with real-life experience, both the good times and the bad, what gets his goat and what makes his day.
He has inspired me to make changes in my business and I would highly recommend Mark for his no-nonsense, enthusiastic and engaging approach to presenting about business improvement.

Mark gave a fantastic talk on how to define your core values within your business. It was a great insight and some brilliant ideas on how to utilise the existing values your key staff already portray & then to build upon this to give your business real identity.v Looking forward to the next session.

I've had the pleasure of knowing Mark for a number of years, and I can best summarise his outlook on work and life as being a real go-giver.

Mark gives freely of his time and knowledge to help others grow -- both personally and professionally.

A great example of this is Mark's presentation on "How a crisp packet changed my life". Mark is an engaging speaker who shares freely of his challenges and how he overcame them. Professional, practical and amusing at times, the presentation had a profound effect on me. I know from speaking to my peers in the audience, they found it an incredibly valuable presentation too.

Mark has helped so many people, myself included, in the IT industry and beyond. He does so without a second thought. I'd have no hesitation in recommending Mark to work with.

Mark’s energy and authenticity as a speaker shines through alongside his vulnerabilities to the trials and tribulations of leading and growing a successful MSP. No one grows something of substance without growing themselves. If you get a chance to see Mark speak - take it.

I have known Mark for a number of years and have always been impressed by not only his business acumen but his supportive nature. His knowledge and understand of the EOS system and his talk last week that I attended on Values was very helpful. I considered myself lucky to have Mark as my mentor, he has helped improve my business and my grow my ambitions.

I recently saw Mark deliver a fantastic talk on Living Your Business Values at a CompTIA event in Birmingham. The room was packed to the rafters, and all the attendees I spoke to loved it. The whole back-story of how Mark saw the light and discovered his company values is very interesting and inspiring for fellow business owners.

I attended the CompTIA event in Birmingham in June and Mark was one of the speakers. Really enjoyed his presentation. It was hugely informative and also lighthearted. The subject being covered was a very serious one but Mark puts a great spin on it and made it something we could all relate to. We enjoyed it so much, we’ve asked him to speak at our own event this November

I attended a presentation at the Network Group Focus Event last week by Mark on Implementing Business Core Values. It's one of several presentations when I have experienced Mark presenting on his experience and business philosophy. I found the presentation focused, interesting and above all relevant to my business. Mark's presentations and advice over several months have helped me develop and improve the effectiveness of the management within my business, this in turn results in a happier workforce and improved productivity. Mark is one of those rare presenters who doesn't preach to the audience and genuinely wants to help his audience improve their management and reap the rewards, everything he talks of is based on his own practical experience when implementing changes to his business. I thought it would be difficult to improve on the management of my business then I met Mark. I would highly recommend attending one of his presentations, I guarantee at the end you'll be asking, "when is the next one?" If you have to choose between presentations then this should be the one you choose over others!

I recently attended a CompTIA event where Mark did a key note speech on 'Living Your Business Values'. The whole room was completely hooked and engaged on his story which resonated with many in the audience.

Mark is a fantastic speaker who focuses on the day to day challenges in the MSP world and we will 100% be at his next one!!

Stephen Rich - CompTIA

Mark gave a fantastic presentation at the CompTIA UK Community Meeting in Birmingham. It was a very honest portrayal of the changes that he has undertaken in his organisation and his realisation of what was holding his company back (spoiler alert - it was Mark).

The talk was packed full of real world advice that every leader of a company could take away and action the next day. It included the right balance of humour without the impact of his message being lost.

Topics included, giving more authority to senior leadership team, taking a step back and not needing to be a part of every decision and looking at how to distil a company's core values and how to live them in the business. I highly recommend Mark.

Mark gave a talk go us regarding values within your business in conjunction with the Traction system of management. I personally found it extremely informing and because you know Mark has implemented this within his business and you see his success from it you can see that it is not purely theoretical.

He also delivers it in a plain speaking anecdotal manner that makes it really easy to understand and makes you think " perhaps I can implement that within my business ? " We have now started the process.

If you're a small business owner give this man half an hour of your time , it will be worth it !!

I had the pleasure of listening to Mark's speech on "Living your company values" at a recent event held by Comptia in Birmingham in the UK. It was such a popular talk that we had to swap rooms to get into a larger venue.

It was clear to see Mark is passionate about this subject through his infectious delivery. He also provided numerous examples of his company really living by their core values and in doing so where this has helped to drive business.

Mark covers the whole journey from realisation that things were not quite right with an amusing story about a crisp packet, through what he learned and how and finally on what changes he made to put the company on the path to growth.

Highly recommend listening to Mark on this subject if the opportunity presents itself.

I've recently had the pleasure of listening to Mark's speech on 'Living your company values' at our NG group event before the gala and on a previous session also. At both events the insight into how Mark's company has adopted and applied the core values has been eye opening, it’s not often you hear such genuine advice, insight and reasoning behind how this adoption has in turn improved company morale, performance and business. As a result we will be looking into the Traction series of books and reviewing how we may be able to also incorporate EOS (entrepreneurial operating system) into our business as efficiently as Mark.

Great session and information and would thoroughly recommend taking the opportunity to have a listen if the opportunity arises.

I’ve been privileged to see the evolution of a powerful presenter, with a message that resonates with small businesses, whatever the sector. Mark first spoke at a Network Group event in 2017 – the infamous “Crisp Packet” presentation. It went down so well and sparked such a torrent of interest that we had to implement a whole series of knowledge exchange sessions, based on the “Traction” series by Gino Wickman. Mark continues to work with our Members on identifying, implementing and living their Core Values, with great effect.

Each time Mark presents to the group he leaves an impression. He shares his passion and vulnerability in equal measure and is honest about the pain points in his journey as well as the highlights and successes. His “Bosses need to get out of the way and let your staff do the job you have employed them to do” talk still influences the decisions I make and the way I interact with my peers and colleagues today.

If you are a small business owner with ambitions to grow, half an hour with Mark will light a fire under you!

I recently attended a talk given by Mark on creating a core set of Values as a platform for your organisation to grow through improved staff empowerment and alignment with overall business strategy. I've attended many talks on similar subjects in the past, however Mark's delivery is far more passionate and insightful than most as he speaks with many years of experience of fine honing his own business and he takes you on that journey with him.

There is a big difference between listening to someone who knows a lot of the theory behind business transformation versus someone who has literally been there and done it and is successful. Mark very much fulfils the latter of those and is genuinely interested in sharing his valuable knowledge. Thank you for sharing Mark. Looking forward to your next talk.
