“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.”

“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 😀

John Turner

CEO, Educational Life

“I saw Mark give a talk at Charing Cross London and really enjoyed it. It was clear that Mark has had a fascinating career, working and spending so much time in the Middle East. I was also very impressed by how many languages he speaks. A very likeable and genuine guy.

“It makes all the difference to have someone with your experience as part of the team.

James Tillitt

Artistic Director

“Brilliant video.

Katy Fryd


“Just took a look… brilliant! What’s good is that you’ve put together 8 minutes of video there.  The other 3 videographers/ film makers didn’t get that far… Marvellous.

Dr Colin Skinner

Biologist and Trekker

“I started an advanced apprenticeship in social digital marketing when I was 23 (rather than go to University) and it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made thanks to my mentor Mark Goldfinch. I’m now working in London for a tech startup in what can only be described as my dream job

“Interesting. I was actually engrossed by this essay and learned a lot, although not a linguist and not expecting to be interested.

Stuart Groom


“Really nice pieces Mark, hope to see more of your writing talents and read more of your work.

Stephen Ives

“Absolutely fascinating – particularly on the mechanics of comprehension delay. Also the fact that Arabic is not monolithic.

Christian E

“Just listened to your Business Bunker radio interview. Really, really nice. You come across brilliantly and speak so well about everything.”

Caroline Barratt

MD, Your Words

“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.”

Michael Gordon

Vows that Wow

“Mark, I wanted to write and say a HUGE thanks for taking part in the Business Diaries last night. It was a wonderful evening of storytelling and I was very touched by your interpretation of The Gift. I can’t help but wonder where that young lady is now and how her life is.  I hope she is well and happy. I have received lovely feedback today.”

Lisa Settle

Director, Telcare Ltd

“Lovely photos Mark, and a fabulous presentation. Loved it. Gave me goosebumps!”

“Mark gave a fantastic presentation yesterday at Canterbury. Entitled ‘Ringers’, this was an informative and entertaining talk on storytelling within marketing, from an engaging presenter. I would thoroughly recommend attendance at a meeting where Mark is presenting.”

Dr Mike Warren

Founding Director

“Mark is like the Steve Irwin or Bear Grylls of careers. He’s had some amazing experiences and was really able to put himself in my shoes.”

Guy M

“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.”

Wendy G

Office Manager

“A good read. You’ve inspired me to give it a go.”

Jamie Jordan


“On a scale of 1 – 10, I would rate the marketing MOT programme and materials a solid 10.  As someone whose language is NOT marketing or strategic communication, all of the materials provided have demystified things for me, so I can now implement a robust and intelligent strategy, which will only serve to enhance and grow my business. I’m not entirely sure where there could be room for improvement with any aspect of the Marketing MoT. Was the Marketing MoT a good investment for your business? Absolutely – without any shadow of doubt. Would you recommend the Marketing MoT to other businesses? Yes – 100%”
