Mark Wales


As a former special operations commander, Mark is used to operating in dynamic, high stress situations where personal and team performance means the difference between life and death.

The same challenges are found in competition: the need to lead yourself and teams well, to stay mission-focussed, and to transform quickly when needed. In his motivating and engaging keynotes, Mark shares his experiences in leading combat units, and transforming world-class businesses to provide insights on high performance pillars.

Mark’s mastery of the fundamentals of resilience, transformation and execution can help your team triumph in any competition.

Mark is a former McKinsey & Company consultant and has an MBA from the Wharton School of Business.



High performance can be generated from a series of proven habits.

High performance team habits include a culture that allows people to prioritise achieving the mission, supporting the team, and maintaining their own needs. High performance personal habits include personal adherence to continuous learning, exercise, good eating, and quality rest. The skills needed to be a high performance individual, team leader, or team member consist of some mindsets and capabilities that can be taught.

That is my promise to you – to train you and your team in the habits that will unlock human potential in your organisation. These are the same habits that allowed me to join special ops units, elite businesses and the world’s top colleges. I do this with interactive keynote presentations, workshops and consulting that impart the knowledge, skills and values I learned in my own journey.
