“I didn’t get the chance to speak to you about your presentation. It was really good and I would be happy to hear it again 😀”
“Fantastic documentary, well done. I now know a famous person.”
“I think the website is fantastic – very impressed and well done! I am very pleased with the website and cannot thank you enough for your help with this.”
“A great series of posts – very evocative of the times.”
“Interesting! I’m not a linguist and wasn’t expecting to be interested but I was actually engrossed by this essay and learned a lot.”
“I can’t wait to talk to Mark. I had a look at his websites: top class. Am captivated.”
“My book does look good!! Thank you.”
“Thanks, both the videos you’ve done of me are amazing!”
“You were a true pro to cope with those artist interviews (our first) and I thank you for handling the situation so well.”
“Perfect – very comprehensive and spot on.”
“What you’ve achieved with the website and programmes is really impressive – a sincere thank you Mark.”
“Mark is like the Steve Irwin or Bear Grylls of communications. He’s had some amazing experiences and was really able to put himself in my shoes.”
“Pathways are funny things in life, in how something as traumatic as the Deal bombing or a simple misspoken word can influence a person into going left or right off them. You did the right thing for you at the time and have been proved right.”
“A good read. You’ve inspired me to give it a go.”
“Mark’s Marketing MOT programme has got me back in the driving seat of marketing my business. I now have a marketing strategy and a plan for implementing it, rather than the ad hoc method I had before. Since working with Mark I have changed my branding as I now have a clear vision of how I want my marketing to work and how my branding represents me. Thank you Mark.”
“Absolutely fascinating – particularly on the mechanics of comprehension delay. Also the fact that Arabic is not monolithic.”
“Great presentation Mark.”
“I really enjoyed Mark’s presentation. He seems to have fitted about three lifetimes into one! Although there was a practical and useful element to his talk, it was the nuggets about Mark’s experiences that I have really taken away. I certainly recommend taking the opportunity to attend one of Mark’s presentations, if you can.”
“Thank you for giving me my first shot at the marketing and tech industry. Will never forget the opportunities you’ve given me. Good luck!”
Communication is such a natural part of life that we often overlook its essential counterpart: analysis. More than that, we don’t recognise how much analysis is instinctive, instantaneous and therefore ‘below the radar’. This is true of individuals as much as organisations. As our communications become more precise and better tailored to their ultimate purpose, so our analysis has to become more meticulous and finely-honed… and definitely more thoughtful. Without that we run the constant risk that, “The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.”
Often attributed to George Bernard Shaw, Quote Investigator identified William Hollingsworth Whyte as the original sources of this quotation. He wrote: “The great enemy of communication, we find, is the illusion of it. We have talked enough; but we have not listened. And by not listening we have failed to concede the immense complexity of our society – and thus the great gaps between ourselves and those with whom we seek understanding.” (Fortune, 1950, via Quote Investigator).
Your organisation doesn’t communicate for its own sake! Your goal is to use smart communications to change some aspect of behaviour. So we’re here to help you with our suite of services that span the communications spectrum. You can benefit from our communications expertise, inspiring e-learning, theoretical know-how and real world experience. Please get in touch for more details about the ways in which we can help you.
