Hi and welcome to my website. I’m Mark Denton, a motivating and inspiring speaker on leadership dedicated to sharing what really matters when creating and leading high performing teams in uncertain, challenging and competitive environments.
I do this by immersing my audience in the riveting and highly relevant-for-business multi-media case study ‘Leadership and teamwork in the eye of the storm’. This recounts my experience leading a team in the BT Global Challenge Round the world yacht race, and is a brutally honest portrayal of the highs and lows and critical learning that led to success in this epic event.
Who I do it for?
Since 2002 I have been a conference and keynote speaker at thousands of events worldwide. And for organisations big and small, in the public, private, not for profit and education sectors, and across a diverse range of industries and sports.
The topic, and the learning I share is so universally applicable! Here are some of those who have benefited from the learning:
Entertainment, engagement, and education all in one package! Delegates are not only highly motivated and inspired by the experience, but the learning can also be put into action the very next day. I've also received feedback countless times that the multi-media format combined with heartfelt narrative is also incredibly memorable. It’s the ideal formula for long lasting learning!

Why you should book me?
It’s a very rare opportunity to really get under the bonnet of a team’s experience and learning in such an environment, and to hear it from the leader who was there. I also know the power of humility, humour, candidness and timing, and use all to great effect. That combined with a polished production and awe inspiring footage, means that you can rest easy knowing that your delegates will be hanging off every word and raving about it afterwards. And our consultation and customisation process will ensure that it’s absolutely on point to your events key themes and outcomes.
