  • Mark Carter provided an energetic, engaging presentation to our audience of small business to local government attendees. Participation and learnings were delivered in a positive and responsive manner. Mark really tailored his presentation to our needs and was in contact regularly to provide updates on the development of the presentation to meet our needs. He included a number of extra value adds which will benefit us greatly going forward. —Phillip Island Regional Tourism Board
  • Mark Carter is an amazing and energetic keynote speaker who really cares about his audience. We have used Mark on numerous occasions and received outstanding feedback from the groups he has engaged with. His content is practical and easy to absorb but has a strong message and easy takeaways for his audience. He is a true professional and will align his message to your business strategies to change behaviour. I rank him as one of our best strategic facilitators for our network. —Network Chief, LJ Hooker Limited
  • I have had the privilege of working alongside Mark at both SENSIS and at CareerOne and Mark continues to hit the mark with effective sales training which sales consultants and Managers can take away with them and improve their results immediately. He is the only sales trainer I have used who engages his audience with energy, passion and a humbleness that draws the consultants in. The consultants, the Sales Managers and State Sales Managers buy in to him immediately and walk away from the training with actions that work. The feedback is always exceptionally positive from any team he has worked with, he can command a group of 100+ like he did with my Call Centre at SENSIS or a smaller group of 10 as he is doing now at CareerOne. A one day session based on value changed my team overnight from selling on price to selling on value and the proof is in the results, which are 30% higher than last month. — Sales Manager, Qualtrics
