Marc helps your organisation realise opportunities in one of the most transformational times in human history. To achieve this, Marc calls for a radical rethink of the three critical areas in which he specialises: strategy, culture and governance. The Financial Times calls his work “Inspirational, Refreshing and Insightful” and The Times compares him with the likes of Henry Mintzberg, Tom Peters and Robert Waterman. But “the main difference is that Marc’s exposé is more detailed and more grounded in research; none has offered such an elaborate, systematic approach”.
