Best keynote speech I have heard in 30 years.

Life changing message. Let me say I feel I’ve learned a new way to understand and speak to my grandkids and the younger generation.
I’ve gained a better understanding of how to unleash the potential I see in so many of our high school students. Mark is knowledgeable, personable and the right leader to guide this “shift” in the way schools and communities support their students.
Absolutely hit the target for students of today and the impact of teaching for their future.
Amazing presenter! Mark makes it real. He bridges the gap between education and employment.
You know a speaker is great when he inspires you to race back to your office or classroom to start implementing what he said. Mark is that kind of speaker.
Common sense, in your face, relatable and DO-ABLE calls to action that will make immediate impact. I’d tell people to NOT miss the opportunity to participate in this.
