Mark is an award winning IT Project Manager certified by the Project Management Institute, an AGILE Certified Practitioner, an IT Business Analyst certified by the International Institute of Business Analysts, certified ITILv3 Foundations in IT Customer Service, and a Certified SCRUM Master.

Over the years, Mark witnessed the traditional way meetings were run and how their shortcomings resulted in creating frustration, wasted time, ambiguous results, and in some cases outright failure. Clearly a redesigned structure and preparation method for creating and leading a meeting had to be developed that ensured success. Much like the world of business has changed the last 10-15 years, so to the art of leading and preparing for a meeting had to change also, with the emphasis being on structure, focus, interaction, and definable results. Through trial and error, taking the best of what worked, Mark self-taught himself the necessary skills to lead a meeting with techniques that eliminated bad habits and promoted success.

Mark has communicated this unique approach to professional networking groups and individuals in the Fairfield County. Mark’s approach is an 11 point step by step plan to zero in on what needs to get accomplished quickly and putting a plan into action to achieve maximum results.
