Character and its significance to college, namely with social media dangers & its consequences, matters now more than ever in society.
He has spoken at over 100 high schools in the last 4 years and his educational efforts are completely on the side from his full-time job as an MLB agent.
Mark’s message focuses on issues like social media dangers, the need for students to volunteer in their community and anti-bullying. Character Matters.
Mark is passionate, knowledgeable and energetic as he delivers his message to all student athletes and parents. It is spot on with what they need to hear. We had over 115 participants come on Zoom for his hour presentation. The feedback from parents and students was awesome!
DEBRA FERRY, AD – HALF HOLLOW HILLS HS
Mark’s approach is very realistic and honest. I have to share an email I received from one of my parents last night: “Excellent presentation. POWERFUL. Mark was clear, to the point and amazing. His pictures at the end sent the biggest message.” To me that speaks volumes to the presentation.
JENNIFER KEANE, AD – WANTAGH HS
PHENOMENAL! There are not enough of us delivering the message you do. Thank you for the much needed reality check to our community, both students and parents. You’re the best I’ve seen at what you do….it’s all delivery!
DR. NATHAN HELTZEL, GUIDANCE COUNSELOR – BRIARCLIFF HS
The points Mark stressed about student athletes giving back to their community, and the dangers of unrefined social media, and of the student’s responsibilities regarding bullying are vital for us to heed in our efforts to raise good people, not good athletes, and are too often not prioritized. I loved the presentation.
MICHELLE WEISSENBERG, PARENT – MIRA COSTA HS
His presentation helped to reinforce the messages that our coaches, teachers, and administrators have been sharing with students and parents. I would highly recommend Mark and his Perfect Playcement talk.
KEVIN REGAN, AD – EAST MEADOW HS
Perfect Playcement truly empowers the parents and athletes. It gives them the tools to not only navigate the process but to feel more in control of the potential outcomes.
RON PETRIE, AD – MILLER PLACE HS
I give my highest accolades to his presentation. Not only is Mark a dynamic speaker but his depth of knowledge and ability to establish an instant rapport with his audience is exceptional.
TIMOTHY MULLINS, DIR INTERSCHOLASTIC SPORTS
Mark’s presentation to a packed house of athletes and parents was spot on. As both and educator, father, and former Division I athlete myself, I wish I had heard Mark’s presentation when I was in high school.
VINCE DiGRANDI, PRINCIPAL – N. SALEM HS
If you have not booked him as of yet, you are doing your school community a disservice. His message is, in my opinion, an extremely important one because he prioritizes the critical factors that go into making one of the most important decisions a student will make in their lifetime.
