Mark is one of the best big-picture/big-partnership-thinking mentors there is. (And I've met a lot of mentors on our River City Labs [muru-D] Accelerator program in Brisbane, plus through startup events on the Sunshine Coast.) -- His suggestions always push you out of your comfort zone, which is exactly what you need if you want to not just grow your business, but accelerate it to a whole different playing field. -- On top of that, he's very well connected and forever generous with his time. I highly recommend Mark.
