Mark DeVolder Speaker Biography


Mark DeVolder is the Change Specialist and a pioneer in the field of transition management. Unique in the industry, DeVolder is one of the few speakers who teaches leaders how to change. As an award-winning speaker and recipient of the Top 10 Speaker Award in Change Management, Mark is a frequent presenter at high-level management meetings around the world, both live and virtual … from coaching NASA rocket scientists how to re-create themselves to the cultural transformation of a $42 billion merger; from pivoting to a safety-first culture in Qatar’s oil industry to preparing Egypt’s largest company to restructure itself. Mark teaches leaders about Perpetual Pivot, the process of adapting to continuous change through reinvention, innovation and anticipation.

In addition to cutting-edge content, Mark brings high-energy, humor, and audience interaction to all his presentations. He uses his skill as a master storyteller to draw people into the essence of his message. Whether live or on a virtual stage, Mark has the ability to connect deeply with people: “Mark kept us glued to our screen” and “Mark was inspiring and kept the audience charged.”

Across five continents and in over 25 countries, Mark has worked with a myriad of impressive and diverse organizations, large and small, including NASA, McDonald’s, GE, Autodesk, Coca-Cola, Marriott, Siemens, Medtronic, PepsiCo, Bristol-Myers Squibb, PWC, HILTI, Verizon, Orascom Construction and Monsanto. Mark has engaged and delighted audiences from Monaco to Dubai, from Singapore to London and from Istanbul to Barcelona.

As a researcher, consultant, and author, Mark has written the multi-disciplinary book on managing change, entitled, Perpetual Pivot: How the Best Leaders Adapt to Exponential Change. His second book, Get Engaged, is a practical guide for improving employee engagement. Mark’s first publication was his doctoral dissertation which studied the elements of diversity, inclusion and teambuilding, entitled Unity in Diversity Through Synergy.

Perpetual Pivot: How to Navigate through Transitions

Never before have leaders faced our current level of fast and extreme change, where chaos, disruption, and crisis have become the norm. Mark asks, how do we successfully navigate through such a world? His answer is that we must learn the skills of Perpetual Pivot, a continuous process of adapting, reinvention, and anticipation. Mark explains that the hardest part of change is the transition. Consequently, he shows leaders how to traverse through the maze. Deeply practical, leaders will learn how to walk through the door of uncertainty into the future, armed with tools to successfully navigate transitions.

Harnessing the Hurricane: Adapting Faster to Extreme Change

Change is constant, unpredictable and accelerating. Extreme change can – much like a hurricane – leave you dizzy, dazed and disoriented, as though the earth is moving under your feet. Even if you survive the storm, you know more is coming.

Change expert Dr. Mark DeVolder throws a lifeline to you and your team with tools and strategies he’s developed to clear away the fog. You will learn how to rewire your brain to adapt to change, anticipate future trends and persevere in adversity. Mark’s practical principles enable you to act boldly, nimbly and quickly in face of exponential change.

Unstoppable Resilience: Developing the Mindset of a Champion

Why doesn’t the fastest runner always win the race?  Or why doesn’t the smartest person always get the best job?  Because it’s not always the ones who “start out the smartest who end up smartest.”  (Dweck)   It takes more than natural speed, intelligence or ability to be a champion.  It takes resilience. But resilience is not just for the elite with an Olympic gold around their neck.  Resilience can be learned.

Mark shows leaders how to increase their grit, passion, and purpose by developing the mindset of a champion.  Mark’s best practices will help you cultivate determination, increase resilience and conquer adversity.

On Fire! Energized Together, Everyone, Every Day

When individuals lose their spark, organizations lose their fire. This predicament has a devastating effect on productivity, profitability and company reputation. 

But it doesn’t have to be that way. Mark’s test-driven model of engagement equips people to identify the causes of “flame out” and recognize behaviors and leadership decisions that act as a fire extinguisher.

Mark kindles the process through the pillars of engagement: clarity, competence, influence, and appreciation. As relationships strengthen, trust burns brightly.

Getting to Target Zero: Engaging High-Performance Safety

Hazards and obstacles abound in the fast and frenzied pace of business today. In the rush to stay competitive, people are increasingly tempted to take short cuts and sacrifice safety.

The most common barrier, however, is actually change itself. Some employees feel paralyzed by change, and when they feel paralyzed, they disengage. Without the ability or capacity to change, accidents can happen.

Mark DeVolder’s proven transition model enables people to accept new practices and let go of the unsafe past. As people become Change Ready their level of engagement rises. DeVolder supports this progression with his easy to apply strategy increase clarity, competence, influence, and appreciation.
