Emmy Award-Nominated Inspirational Speaker Mark Brown

As an expert in helping people overcome their fears to reach their maximum potential, Mark has been featured in the New York Times, Men’s Health, on CNN Headline News, and even had his own PBS Special, which was nominated for an Emmy Award.

He has shared his insights across a wide variety of industries to major corporations including Sprint, Sheraton, Principal Financial Group, Prudential, and Cathay Pacific Airways. Additionally, Mark has been a guest lecturer at premier academic institutions such as Penn State University, Xavier University, and the University of Florida.
