About Mark Harris

Marketing is about people which is why I clicked instantly with this industry and have never looked back.

Customers are at the heart of any organisation, and in Marketing, I have the privilege of listening and responding to them; their alignment with a company's culture and values, their needs and their desires.

And then there are the extraordinary people I work alongside. Marketing relies heavily upon teamwork - it’s a creative and dynamic space where you inspire each other and work collectively to move forward.

This environment fulfils my need for variety, action and a strong sense of community.

My shift to Coaching

Eight years ago, after working for start-ups, fast-growing enterprises and reputable corporate brands such as O2 and EDF Energy, I started coaching marketing to business owners.

My transition was sparked by several events and encouraged by a very good friend of mine, Simon Tyler. We had worked together at ICI, where my career in Marketing began. Ten years ago we reconnected, by which time Simon had become a Coach.

His career move inspired me to put my skills and experience towards something I really cared about: helping others realise their potential.

Best practice, best service

I now split my time between being a Coach and a Marketing Director for British, American and Finnish companies through Marketing Boost. This means I never lose sight of what marketing a business feels like; what I teach is what I practice every week.

I work with many business owners and leaders, speakers, authors and holistic healers, including Olympic Rower Greg Searle, Lee Harris and Angelika Maria Koch.

I’m also an associate member of the Association for Coaching, an accredited Business Athlete Coach, a Part-Time Marketing Director for The Marketing Centre and an Executive Coach for the Marketing Academy, where I have the pleasure of coaching the brightest young Marketing talent in the country.

Coaching encapsulates everything I enjoy most in my work:
  • I help my clients to rediscover the clarity and confidence they need to build momentum in their careers and personal life.
  • My first-hand marketing experience offers insights to others.
  • I experience positive changes in the lives of the people I work with.
My coaching methods centre around my enjoyment of connecting people...
  • To their own resources to overcome growth challenges and embed self-development.
  • To others who can help them to flourish.
  • To the right customers to help their business maintain long-term success.

I deliver lasting sustainable growth in people and their businesses.
