Melbourne Based /
International Keynote Speaker /
Trainer & Coach

Mark Carter is a Melbourne based keynote speaker, trainer, author and coach. Mark works as an inspirational international speaker. He has over 25 years’ experience as a global learning and development professional. His TEDx talk was the movie trailer for his latest book, ‘Add Value’, published globally by Wiley.


Specialising in People & Behaviour

Mark is the founder of a learning management system for SME’s and consults businesses around key pillars such as: leadership development, culture, onboarding, sales skills training, adaptability, and presentation skills. Mark contributes regularly across mainstream media: TV, radio, print and industry specific publications. 

He is often asked about how do you go from being a leader across Europe for Contiki Holidays to a respected, sought after motivational keynote speaker? Mark’s decade of experience in Europe armed him with a wealth of knowledge around people, human behaviour, the psychology of decision-making and what makes people tick both personally and professionally. Coupled with his own insatiable hunger for continued professional development Mark has risen to become an innovative professional in his field with a rich academy of content.

So, from connecting with happy go lucky passengers in Europe, Mark now connects with people globally on a deeper, more meaningful level in their own lives. Upgrading from a charming tour guide to a wise sage and masterful storyteller, it’s no wonder he’s a sought after international keynote speaker, trainer and MC!

Mark offers a distinctive approach to subjects, delving deep into their intricacies, leveraging knowledge that easily transcends industries and channels. As soon as you engage with Mark, you will notice his service delivery aligns with three core values that surmise his approach: ‘Add Value’, ‘Be Your Word’ and provide ‘Creative, Selfless Service.’

An anonymous conference review perhaps best captures his overall essence; ‘MC should be bottled and drunk daily!’

(Mark’s also often asked by clients and attendees ‘what after shave are you wearing?? If you’re going to ask that question, there’s a good chance it’s currently Mont Blanc: Explorer!)

Born in England, raised in Scotland, nurtured by Europe and matured through several round world trips, Mark Carter is a truly global citizen. He now calls Australia home where he enjoys the fruits of a sunny lifestyle. Mangoes, after all, don’t grow in Edinburgh.
