Why You Need Mark

Mark Black, CSP is a Resilience Expert, Heart and Double-Lung Transplant Recipient 4-Time Marathon Runner, Author and Life-Strategy Coach. Mark doesn’t just deliver speeches, he creates unforgettable audience experiences.

Born with a congenital heart defect, Mark barely survived his first week of life. Hours after delivery, Mark was on a helicopter being flown to a children’s hospital for dangerous open-heart surgery.

Fortunately, Mark survived that surgery and another one like it a year later. But for 23 years, Mark battled the symptoms and setbacks of congenital heart disease. Then, in April of 2001, Mark was faced with the biggest challenge of his life. Mark’s condition had deteriorated significantly. Doctors gave him less than two years to live.

May was placed on the heart-lung transplant waiting list. With his condition continually worsening, in April 2002, he was admitted to hospital where he would stay until he got a transplant, or until he died. Fortunately, on September 7th, 2002, after staying a six month stay in hospital,, Mark received a life-saving heart and double-lung transplant.

In the years since that day, Mark has beaten all the odds and uses his new gift of life to inspire people to “live life with passion and purpose”. Mark’s presentations have now inspired nearly 60,000 people across North America and his book “Live Life from the Heart” has become an Amazon best-seller.

Founder of Adversus Communications, Mark has impacted the lives of more than 100,000 people through more than 350 presentations across North America. His clients include: Toyota, Amway, SunLife Financial and many more.

Mark shares more than just a powerful message when he steps on the stage; he shares himself. Maybe that’s why everyone who hears him speak is touched in a profound way. He has been called, “the best speaker I have ever heard” and “simply amazing”. Mark’s message is simple, “Live today with all of your heart, because tomorrow isn’t promised to anyone.”

Why You Will Love Mark

“We really enjoyed Marks presentation and his approach- -so much so that we bought books on the spot for everyone after hearing him speak!   He had a lot of emotion telling his stories. Big takeaways for me: think on the positive;  use the experience of hardships in your life to better yourself and when setting a  goal—focus on steps—not the obstacles.  We are really pleased with the service LimeLight offers as well. I expect to be in touch next year to book a speaker for our next annual meeting.”

“I was extremely pleased with Mark’s talk at out event; it was excellent!!

The fact that Mark was 100% authentic and real instead of sharing a bunch of clichés everyone has heard before, made his a presentation I won’t soon forget.

Sometimes “motivational speakers” do little more than entertain. Mark entertained, but he also provide tangible strategies and concepts that people could APPLY immediately which is even more valuable.”
