What Participants Say About Mark
Mark is the best trainer I’ve seen in 20+ years of adult learning and training management.
The dynamic Mark creates in a room is purely magical! Into the fabric of
standard themes, he cleverly weaves compelling stories and anecdotes that
captivate his audiences…Mark continues to dazzle us with his talent and
skill! I would highly recommend him to any potential client because, in my
mind, he is a uniquely-talented individual who has no peers.
Thank you for the exceptional training which you provided…Your passion and expertise came through during all parts of the two day course. You really have a gift and it came through loud and clear. As Amiel said, “To know how to suggest is the great art of teaching.” You suggested well sir.
Mark exudes an almost “healing” quality to “wounded presenters.” I actually
felt like someone picked me off the floor, washed my face, and said, “You can
do this—let’s try again!” Mark is almost…Wow! Just wow!
Everyone I have talked to has said they enjoyed your presentation very
much, “The best we have ever had.” That goes for me as well, you exceeded
my expectations. If I had to use three words to describe what you TAUGHT
us, they would be: fantastic, powerful, and motivational.
Mark, I know this is your job and you are paid to do it, but you go beyond that. You have given a piece of yourself to each of us. Thank you for your commitment to excellence. I’ve been more impressed with you than any other instructor I’ve ever had. Thank you for choosing this life path.
Mark, thank you for the incredible past two days. I have been a
trainer/presenter and have watched scores more. You are, without
any doubt, the best I have ever seen. Your style flowed so well. You
were factual and humorous, and you created an environment that
was very conducive to learning. Perhaps the best thing about you,
however, was your genuine interest in all of us.
How is it that after 19 years I still remember lessons from the keynote
address you delivered at Fidelity Investments–like Roger Bannister
running the first sub-four-minute mile, and many other dynamic and
applicable lessons that made me a life-long fan of Mark Swain? It’s
because you made a difference in my life. Thank you for your continuing
love of learning and desire to share what you have learned with others.
I will be forever grateful for the opportunities I’ve had to learn from you.
Excellent Class—better instructor. Mark’s ability to interact
with ALL the students while engaging and teaching is
amazing! I would go to any course he teaches.
Thank you for the incredible presentation you gave to our
Department Managers Retreat last week. As you are aware,
it was received by the group with great enthusiasm…It was
obvious that you took the time to get to know who your
“customer” was and what we needed to understand.
It was a remarkable experience and, unlike similar
experiences, one I’ll not soon forget.
I have participated in many sales workshops over a 21-year span. This was
the most valuable information I have received. Furthermore, Mark was
extraordinary. He is an excellent communicator and extremely intelligent.
I enjoyed Mark’s use of art and history to demonstrate his points. he is a very talented teacher.
I have a low tolerance for all-day classes, but Mark really made this one go quickly—great instructor.
I was so moved by this class that it brought me to tears. I have never had a
better instructor in my life than Mark. I will use everything he taught me.
Fantastic presenter who is full of knowledge and ideas
to push the class to think. Delivery is excellent. Mark
keeps the audience involved and wanting more.
Mark’s delivery of the information was clear, concise, and interesting to
hear. I felt alert all the time—never day dreamed! Mark is an excellent
communicator and holds the attention of his audience very effectively.
Mark stopped to answer every question asked. He is dynamic and engaging.
He obviously loves his work, which makes learning from him easy.
Mark, you are awesome! You are very intelligent, knowledgeable, and a
great communicator. I especially enjoyed the participation aspect and the
wonderful, practical examples of how to apply what is learned. Thank you.
Mark is a great motivator—and full of knowledge. He
made it easy for everyone to understand the material.
Mark Swain is the best communicator I have ever seen.
This course [How to Become Your Best Self] has
reawakened a lot of thoughts and beliefs for me.
It has inspired me to do more for myself and others.
Mark, you are very skilled at facilitation—even giving us time to think about questions, helping us formulate our learning, and adapting the agenda to our needs. Congratulations and thanks.
Mr. Swain was very encouraging and non-
judgmental (writing is very personal). He
was also very clear and set a nice pace.
Wow, what a nice guy! Mark was very helpful
and answered all our questions.
Mark is thorough, interesting, and funny. Today’s workshop was very good.
Very well prepared with relative field experience. Flawless
presentation. Mark would be a national asset for any company.
Mark is an excellent speaker and presenter!
He made the class feel comfortable in asking
questions and discussing concerns.
Mark is “Best of Breed!”
Mark demonstrated the methods being taught. The presentation
was fast moving, to the point, and badly needed.

and stories give him the ability to impart his knowledge to others.
Mark Swain is amazing! He is now our facilitator of choice!
