Businesses and organisations of all sizes benefit from bringing in consultants and working with associates. I’ve worked alongside and in many organisations in the UK and Middle East, working to improve different channels of communications. I offer consultancy about the Arabic language and the Middle East region. For the Middle East:
Briefings on pan-Arab trends
Briefings on trends within individual Arab countries.
Briefings on the Arabic language, translation and interpreting.
I offer consulting on any aspect of the following communications areas, based on best practice from the Government Communications Service and the Chartered Institute of Public Relations, coupled with decades of practical and professional experience. Don’t forget, we view analysis and communications as two sides of the same coin.

Mark has been a presenter and speaker since the 1990s and learned early about the importance of planning your communications in advance.
