A few thoughts about Mark

“We advocate for Mark Organ’s approach to advocacy. He has such a passion and energy that is unmatched. We were so happy that Mark spoke at RevTalks. People left inspired, amped up and most importantly took some immediate steps to implement advocacy programs in their companies. We would gladly have him speak again.”—Jeff Pedowitz, President and CEO, The Pedowitz Group

“Attendees referred to Mark’s keynote as ‘illuminating’, ‘thought provoking’ and ‘high value.’ Executives from several attending companies identified that they had ‘actionable insight’ from the session to introduce into their marketing strategies. Mark had a true interest in understanding who the audience was, and what their interests in marketing were. This understanding was baked into his presentation and contributed to it being an incredible success.”—George LaRocque, president of LAROCQUE, owner and organizer of InfluenceHR

“Mark did exactly what we’d invited him onto the panel to do – he took the audience just out of their comfort zone with his unvarnished perspective and compelling personal anecdotes. He used evocative language to describe the world exactly as he sees it, and that means not pulling any punches, yet he somehow manages to be thought-provoking while remaining highly optimistic. We’d love to have Mark join us again when we need a jolt of caffeine for our audience.”—Peter Bryant, partner at Clareo
