About Mark

For over 15 years I have run my own creative agency called TalentLab Ltd, where I have worked on client projects and my own initiatives. My own projects have included creating and developing Urbano Network, formed in 21011. Before that I created Business Junction and now working on Brialto, a online business networking and event management platform currently in beta.

I initially trained as a theatre director and use the disciplines of staging a performance in my work. I call this 'audience thinking'. I also make sure that every project Talent Lab works on follows five rules: ISEEC - Inspire. Surprise. Encourage. Excite. Challenge.

It is these rules that drive all my work including running Urbano Network.

As a consultant, I help clients in the professional and service sectors with their branding, marketing and increasingly networking strategies, helping them deliver bottom-line growth using a host of modern business tools including online and the web, events, exhibitions, and lost of ideas that managements can adopt to grow their companies.

Projects I have created, written and directed include £1M+ brand development programme, marketing/brand skills workshops, presentation training, script writing and directing of corporate videos, event hosting and even comedy.

I also specialise in helping companies and individuals develop an effective networking strategy for themselves or their staff. I offer training that helps approaches at events and making networking a seamless part of the marketing mix, having delivered 1,000 events and facilitated connections between thousands of people and companies.

Talent Lab's client list includes: LloydsTSB, Alcatel, Royal Mail, FirstGroup, Spectrecom, Fine Art Wealth Management, Redington, Blue2 Finance, Silverman Sherliker, Trafic and many smaller businesses across all sectors.
