Canadian Adventurer gets busy on the speaking circuit
Motivational speaker inspires people to tackle their biggest project
Jennings-Bates' diary is getting busy as he speaks to more and more business groups of late.
"I think all of us have a project that makes us uncomfortable. It could be the scale, the fear, the perceived lack of experience - whatever it is, it usually prevents us from starting" said Jennings-Bates, adding "I have personally started a large adventure project without knowing all the answers to the many questions that will come up but it did not stop me from getting started, many adventurers are the same"
Jennings-Bates' background offers a perfect example to CEO's and entrepreneurs of how sometimes the seemingly impossible can in fact become possible. His style of delivery during his keynotes allows an audience to engage and lean in to his presentation while he supports his points with entertaining and often humorous stories as well as stunning video from his adventures.
His latest keynote topic focusses on innovation which is tied closely to his current business consulting work. "Innovation is a fascinating area to study at the moment, but as we progress in our knowledge and application of technology we are seeing innovation without practical application - that is not necessarily progress" comments Jennings-Bates.
His talk which can include a workshop focusses on the culture of innovation that you can expand in to an existing organization and improve products, processes and services to stay ahead of the competition, if not, Jennings-Bates indicates you could be obliterated from the competitive landscape.

"The instant choice was Mark, he is enthusiastic, entertaining and can keep car lovers on the edge of their seats with stories of cross country bike racing through the deserts of Africa and training for the Dakar with International drivers. As well as being a philanthropist, Mark has a wonderful personality that connects with everyone in whatever size crowd he is engaging. After the event, Mark's speech was the talk of the group and was received incredibly well in the post-event reviews." - Nicki Beverley, Co-Organiser, TARGA Canada West
