Mark Sanborn Speaking Page:


My Commitment

What you can expect when you book me and work with my team:

  1. We will be easy to work with. You have enough to handle without worrying about the speaker. My office and I work very hard to be easy and enjoyable to engage.
  2. Consistent and dependable outcomes. After 2400 presentations, I’ve got the ability to research, design and deliver a presentation that will hit your objectives.
  3. Relevant. My remarks will be pertinent and applicable to your audience. I’ll understand them, their challenges and opportunities and make it easy to apply my ideas.
  4. Presentation media is used to enhance the value of the message and to increase the learning experience and retention. This often includes video.
  5. Tailored to your meeting. My pre-program questionnaire and conference call enable me to adapt my material to your circumstances.
  6. Fresh ideas. I develop my own material. I relate to current events and add my own perspective. My trademark stories happened to me and/or my clients and that means they won’t be recycled and tired when your audience hears them.

Who Is Mark Sanborn?

I’m a scuba diver, motorcycle rider, cancer survivor, husband, dad, New York Times bestselling author, and a speaker. But my greatest passion is seeing people become leaders in every area of their lives—especially those who don’t believe they have any inherent leadership skills. I’ve had the opportunity to help this happen in some of the largest corporations in the world, such as: I’ve sold over 2 million books . I’ve spoken to over 2 million people, and I’m one of the youngest speakers ever inducted into the Speaker Hall of Fame (CPAE). But that’s far from what I’m most proud of. The greatest satisfaction of my life is getting e-mails and letters from people who say my speaking or books helped change their life. I would love the opportunity to do the same for your organization.

Why Choose Me to Speak at Your Next Event?

I understand your world and the world of leadership like few other speakers.  I practice what I teach.  One of the things that differentiates my work is that it stems from experience as a business owner, association and board leader.  And I’m still studying, researching and applying what I learn about leadership today, both with my clients and in the organizations in which I am privileged to have a leadership role.  I’ll create a talk for your audience with diligence and deliver it with heart.
