Mark's PhilosophyHappiness is the secret ingredient for extraordinary

I don’t believe in a dog eat dog approach to business. I believe if people are happy and fulfilled at work they will go on to achieve extraordinary things for the companies they work for. I believe business is a force for good in society. It has the capacity to create a fairer and happier world. Happy isn’t a hippy concept. It’s a serious tool for business. The happier your employees, the happier your customers, the happier your business.

  • “One of the most significant business leaders of his generation. Mark proves that you can be both commercially successful and ethically responsible. In the long term that's the only sort of business that's sustainable."

Packing up a picnic hamper, throwing a rug in the car boot and savouring an outdoor feast is a time-honoured tradition that never fails to excite and delight. For adults the word picnic evokes warm childhood memories and the enjoyment of simple pleasures, and for children its suggestion of fun and treats brightens up the dullest of days.
