Hi, I'm Mark. I'm an experiential trainer, author and keynote speaker. I founded and run a professional development business called playmeo. We help group leaders - such as teachers, corporate trainers, youth and camp leaders - create remarkably fun programs that make a difference in the lives and perfromance of their groups. playmeo features the world's largest online database of group games and activities including icebreakers, energisers, trust exercises and team-building activities. On a more personal level, I'm a people-person, and I love an audience. I bring a natural warmth and energy to everything I deliver, from play and adventure-based training and team development programs to voice-over and MC engagements. I earned my Bachelor of Business (Accounting) degree in 1985 and completed my Master of Business Admin (MBA) degree in New York in 1987. After working as a management consultant for two years, I accepted a training internship with Project Adventure Inc in 1990, and returned in 1991 to establish the organisation in Australia. Over the course of the next 10 years, I grew the business twenty-fold. On top of delivering an average of 120 days of adventure-based programs each year, I was also busy hosting weddings, trivia programs and conferences for a diverse range of groups. As I developed a mastery of my vocal talents, I also attracted regular radio, television, audio book and video voice-over gigs. I am grateful that my various skills have allowed me to travel all over the world, including every corner of Australia, and frequent trips to the United States, China, Hong Kong, Canada, New Zealand, Taiwan and Japan.
