Background Information

Mark is a fervent internationalist, who is widely travelled. During his career to date as well as having worked in Jordan for two years, he has spent a considerable amount of time in Africa.

Mark initiated and oversaw a major humanitarian venture into war-torn Sierra Leone in 2000 and his logistical and regional knowledge is in considerable demand.  He writes and speaks on a variety of subjects ranging from international trade to women’s health in the developing world.

As well as being an orator of distinction Mark believes that it is essential that we articulate our convictions with passion; in this regard he is eager to help the voice of others to be heard. He is a Legislative Leadership Training specialist, as well as being an advisor on trade and investment in frontier markets. 

He believes that many of the current difficulties in the world economy are due to a poverty of leadership, poor regional/market knowledge and a lack of real vision.  He is the Co-Founder & Executive Director of the Horn of Africa Business Association (HABA) and sits on the Board of the Kitenge Africa Foundation. In 1994 he was elected a Freeman of the City of London.
