Mark Denton

Consultant And Motivational Speaker

Mark is a Senior HPD Consultant, leadership expert and celebrated keynote speaker with vast experience navigating turbulent waters. In his former professional sailing career he’s competed in countless races and sailed over 80,000 miles across the worlds’ most hostile oceans. The pinnacle was leading a diverse amateur team to success in the ‘world’s toughest’ round-the-world yacht race, the BT Global Challenge 2000-01.

But Mark also draws on 20+ years of consulting with some of the worlds’ greatest organisations, helping to reshape their cultures and improve their resilience to deliver better, faster and more sustainably, especially in times of disruption and change. He’s also an expert on building psychological safety, the foundation of high performing teams, and is a recognised partner with Amy Edmondson’s’ ‘Fearless Organisation’.

It’s the unique combination of this experience that’s encapsulated in Marks signature speech ‘Navigate the Storm’, and led Mark to win a coveted IVCA Gold Award for this ground-breaking multi-media keynote and interactive ‘Masterclass’. Consequently he has spoken at thousands of events in over 31 countries, achieving consistent 5 star reviews from all who have been educated and enthralled.

“A highly skilled coach and a very capable speaker who prides himself on striving for excellence in all that he does whether in business or sport – I totally recommend him”

Richard Olver, Chairman, British Aerospace
