Marks abitlity to create robust plans and then execute them using innovative ideas has allowed UCOL to increase its appeal to key markets considerably. In my opinion, Marks success as a manger is largely due to his ability to empower staff to think creatively in a structured fashion, whereby the possible outcomes of any decision or idea is analysed in line with the team/organisational objectives. As a manager Mark was supportive and consistent. He operated under a genuine Open Door policy, welcoming feedback and ideas where viable." — Racquel Cleaver, School Liaison Coordinator, UCOL Universal College of Learning, worked indirectly for Mark at UCOL Universal College of Learning "Ive worked with Mark on a number of projects which showed his commitment to getting the job done.

He has respect for his team and manages a very productive and inclusive environment. He is keen to get opinions and ensures everyone is heard, although he can still have the right level of control and input to ensure a positive and successful outcome.
