Most of us never reach our potential. We go through life without ever really pushing ourselves to the limits of what’s possible. As a result, many times we miss out on all of the abundant rewards that life has to offer. In this high-energy program, Mark will share powerful principles that when applied, will empower you to attain unexpected levels of excellence in every area of your life. Get ready to be inspired and energized as you are about to elevate your performance to the next level.

Leadership Speaker, Mark Brown, CSPWe often consider celebrities, financiers and politicians to have the greatest influence, but WE have more influence than we realize. In this inspirational, uplifting program, Mark debunks conventional thinking about our lack of influence. Using specific examples and 3 powerful principles, he prompts us to adjust our mindset, stop labeling, limiting and lying to ourselves about our lack of influence, and acknowledge that we are ALL instruments of influence. Key points:

• How to identify the power of your influence
• How to use your influence for maximum effectiveness
• How your local influence can have global impact

‘You are what you do’…or so we have been told. But to fulfill your purpose you must ‘do what you are.’ With that end in mind, Mark will share five powerful principles for pursuing your passion. You will embark on a voyage of self-discovery and find out who YOU really are. You will learn:

• The potency of a pinpoint FOCUS
• The power of planning and priorities
• Key relationships you must build to transform your life
• How your passion can uplift others

Mark offers time-tested techniques for successful teamwork, and expounds upon practical but powerful leadership principles which, when applied, will catapult anyone to leadership success! He will also address:

• The single mistake almost EVERY leader makes
• The flawed philosophy that stifles leadership growth
• The popular adage that destroys your team
• Two terrific tools for boosting team morale

So you need to write a new speech and you ask, “Where do I begin? What will I talk about? Where will I find appropriate stories? How will I find the most descriptive words? How will I look on the platform?” Mark Brown shares the techniques that have helped him answer these and other questions successfully for 20 years.

• How to apply ‘VERBAL VISUALS’

• The importance of CHARACTERS and DIALOGUE

In this unforgettable, Emmy-nominated presentation designed for Junior and Senior High School students, Mark Brown uses the popular Disney film ‘Beauty and the Beast,’ to deliver a powerful message about tolerance, respect and the value of relationships. This program addresses acceptance of differences and the prevalence of “verbal weapons” (words that hurt instead of heal). Using an artful combination of hilarious humor and hard-hitting honesty, Mark poignantly covers the dangers of bullying, cyber-bullying and the importance of tolerance and acceptance among peers. Students will learn:

• The long-lasting effect of ‘harmless name-calling’
• The ‘BIG LIE’ used by students to justify their behavior
• The power within each student to truly change a life!

• The value of LOSING
• How to cope with disappointment
• The greatest benefit of being on the BENCH

Inspirational Speaker, Mark Brown, CSPThere is the dash to catch the plane, the dash to catch the train and the mad dash to get to the store before it closes.

• The single greatest ACTIVATOR to overcoming life’s obstacles
• 4 keys to living a meaningful, purposeful life
• The power of your influence… and of those around you
• How to be ‘fit for the race of life’
