Leaders Inspire Series: Mark Pollock Volume III – Solving Complex Problems: The Power of Collaboration

As human beings, we have faced seemingly impossible challenges before. So, in times of great uncertainty, it’s worth remembering that history is filled with accounts of the impossible made possible through human endeavour. When that endeavour is combined with others through collaboration, major breakthroughs happen.

Following Mark Pollock’s opening talk, he will be he will be interviewed by Paula Cunniffe to explore what leaders and their teams can learn from his experiences of creating international collaborations to pursue projects as diverse as racing to the South Pole and, more recently, catalysing collaborations to cure paralysis in our lifetime. The session will end with an exclusive opportunity to ask questions via an attendee Q&A.

It is tough to deal with uncertainty and change. Your people won’t do it by chance. With a high-impact catalyst you can inspire them to act with the courage to make it happen. Mark Pollock is that catalyst and that’s why leaders worldwide ask him to support their teams to remain resilient, adapt to change and collaborate with others.

Each online leadership masterclass includes a live interactive webinar, followed by an exclusive opportunity to ask Mark a question via live Q&A. There will also be a follow-up email with key takeaways and reading suggestions, and a bi-monthly inspirational email from Mark.

This online leadership masterclass series explores universal themes which are particularly well suited to senior leaders running organisations, next generation leaders set to take their careers to the next level or those leading small to medium sized enterprises who want to support themselves and their teams to remain resilient, adapt, and collaborate.

Mark Pollock

Everything Mark does is about inspiring people to build resilience and collaborate with others so that they achieve more than they thought possible.

Unbroken by blindness in 1998, Mark became an adventure athlete competing in ultra-endurance races across deserts, mountains, and the polar ice caps including being the first blind person to race to the South Pole. He also won silver and bronze medals for rowing at the Commonwealth Games and set up a motivational speaking business (www.markpollock.com).

In 2010 a fall from a second story window nearly killed him. Mark broke his back and the damage to his spinal cord left him paralysed. Now he is on a new expedition, this time to cure paralysis in our lifetime by exploring the intersection where humans and technology collide.

As a speaker, Mark is best known for his 2018 TED talk focussed on resolving the tension between acceptance and hope, delivered jointly with his fiancée, Simone George. It amassed over 1.5 million views in its first 6 months online and has since been translated into 16 different languages.

He has inspired millions of people in hundreds of organisations across the globe and is a veteran speaker of Davis, The World Economic Forum, InnoTown, F.ounders, EG and Wired, now proudly brought to you by Informa Connect.
