What Mark enjoys

CustomerMark particularly enjoys helping smaller organisations (public, profit and non-profit) acquire the confidence and expertise necessary for them to punch well above their perceived fighting weight and achieve outstanding results. He works tirelessly for each of his clients, to distill and communicate ‘the what’ and ‘the how’ they need for success.

The much-maligned public sector occupies far too much of his time, demystifying public sector procurement and helping clients write tenders to win public sector business.


The most comprehensive introduction to procurement best practice I have experienced.

Mark is a sucker for an interesting problem or dilemma

No matter where it comes from or what it is!  And when he’s not helping clients he’s helping his other clients (hens, ducks, bees and pigs) on a smallholding in the Yorkshire Dales.

He’s adamant it’s not an early mid-life crisis; he just likes a good breakfast.
