Mark Strom: #GPCOFC

About Dr. Mark Strom

Mark Strom loves life-giving ideas. He has a rare gift for sparking and animating new conversations. Mark has been doing this for over twenty-five years with parents and communities, and with business, government and not-for-profit leaders.

A story-teller with a PhD in the history of ideas, Mark’s ability to breathe new life into ideas and conversations is grounded in his own story. After a childhood marked by chronic illness and little formal education, he moved on to a first career as a truck driver and labourer. After two periods of academic study, punctuated with truck-driving, a conversation with a friend launched career number two: two decades advising senior leaders in mining, infrastructure, science, finance, government, and education on strategy, innovation and engagement — including six years of personally leading the turnaround of a public institution as its CEO.

Mark was delighted to share some seminar sessions with us and have candid conversations and further dialogue on the topics of: “Leading with Wisdom”,
“Moving from Guilt and Fear to Grace and Freedom”, and “Raising Children and Teenagers With Hope”.
