- Mark offers a powerful presentation, beginning from the moment he takes the stage. His firsthand account of what happened Sept. 11-12, 2012, in Benghazi, Libya, brought both cheers and tears from our audience. Mark's story put a very human face on an event that has been in the news very often during the last four years.

- Mark was outstanding. Spent all morning with him before our event. Very nice man, and a great patriot. Our entire event went off without a hitch. Thanks for being a part of it!

- Mark is an amazing speaker. Mark talked for an hour and you could hear a pin drop - except when he received 3 standing ovations! He was so kind to visit with our membership after his presentation and he allowed everyone who wanted to have their picture taken with him the time. I am so pleased Mike talked our board into the much larger than normal expense for our meeting. It was a pleasure to meet Mark an American Hero! Out of 5 stars our entire group would give him 10.

- ‘Oz’ did a great job of helping us understand how indecisive leadership can get you killed and how strong leadership can keep you alive. In our business, strong leaders prevent hazards from becoming dangerous situations and Mark was able to draw parallels with his experiences and our work place. ‘Oz’ is authentic. He does not mince words; he tells it like it is. It was a true honor to have him a part of our 2017 Safety Summit.
