MY TOPICS

BEING PRODUCTIVE IN A DISTRACTED WORLD

Technology was supposed to make us more productive, not more distracted. In this presentation, you'll get proven strategies to conquer the five main types of distraction – email, social media, people, entertainment and you (mindset). You'll also learn keys to staying productive. Armed with that knowledge, you'll develop a plan for success, taking you from REactive mode to PROactive mode and turning you into the boss of your own schedule.

IF YOU'RE NOT ON SOCIAL MEDIA, YOU DON'T EXIST

LinkedIn. Facebook. Twitter. Instagram. YouTube. And those are just the most popular ones. Every day, it seems as if there is a new social media platform that pops up. To be relevant today, you need to be on social media. It's no longer a "nice to have". But how do you navigate the sometimes perilous waters of social media? I am using social media to build my brand and my business and in this presentation I share with you what has worked for me and what has not.

 

A Sample of Me Speaking

Note: this is from a topic that I no longer speak on but you'll get a flavor of my speaking style.

"Mark has an amazing and infectious energy. I recall calling him from my car on a commute in to work and he really perked up my morning. After that call basically vetting him to speak for WCA I was pretty excited to see if this guy held up to those standards when he spoke for my group. Well today was the day that Mark spoke- I have to say he's the first speaker I have actually listened to and paid attention to- he held my interest for 40 minutes and I learned some valuable things that will assist with time management and he left our group wanting to hear more. Typically once it hits 1 it's like class is about to get out with other speakers but not the case today, everyone was still in their seats paying attention- sadly we hat to cut him off but this is the kind of speaker you want. Can't wait to get emails and listen to future podcasts from him and sign up for coaching!! A great experience all around. "

"Mark recently presented at our annual Texas Bay Area SHRM HR conference. His presentation was fantastic - lots of useful "take aways" and he has great energy! He was prepared, professional and most importantly, engaging and fun. He was a final speaker after a full day and people stayed late to keep discussing his topic and asking him more questions."

Martha Richards
SHRM-CP

"Thank you again for speaking at the Greater Cleveland Chamber of Commerce. You provided a very energizing and engaging presentation that both our business and individual members thoroughly enjoyed. It was absolutely refreshing to learn some “real life” tips that we can implement immediately in both our personal and professional lives…a much needed topic as we all have areas where we need to improve our productivity level. I have received nothing but positive feedback from our members and look forward to connecting again with you in the future."

"Mark, On behalf of MC-SHRM (Montgomery County Texas Chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management), thank you for speaking to our members and guests (plus students) yesterday! You delivered an enlightening, thought provoking topic. Our audience welcomes knowledgeable perspectives and values the expertise you shared. As you know, our attendees especially appreciate the opportunity to keep up-to-date regarding trends and best practices – the productivity views and strategies were well received. Again, thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to speak to our members and guests. I look forward to working with you again in the near future."

Kim Fox-Marchetti
PHR, SHRM-CP

"Ski is a passionate speaker. He presented "How to Increase Productivity and Profitability" at our monthly dinner meeting. This topic was one of those back to basics topics everyone relates to but tend to overlook and put everything else that we are trying to keep up with (social media, technology, oil & gas prices, etc.) ahead of it. I walked away with my determined plan of action. This presentation will get you back on track to "focus and prioritize" in a more profitable and productive regimen. Well done, Ski!"
