Marcus walks the talk, he is an Australian Ski Champion and has been awarded “Coach of the Year”.  Marcus has been a producer and host of the Snowshow for 15 years, but most importantly Marcus’ puts himself out there and practices what he preaches, giving himself new challenges in film and television, and home renovations.  Motivation is a waste of time unless it’s retained, Marcus gives practical guidelines for the students to use in their daily routine.  It’s no use being excited on Friday and then forgetting it all by Monday.

TEACHER COMMENTS:

“What a blast last night. Students all fired up. At morning meeting the students leaders asked each person to stand up and in true Martin Luther King style say “I have a dream…”. We did the entire room including staff – very inspiring and powerful.” – Peter Torey, Curriculum Coordinator, School For Student Leadership – Gnurad-Gundidj Campus, Victoria

He is passionate about his pursuits of achieving dreams and is inspiring when presenting to students.  The students develop a good respet for Marcus through his presentation and more importantly, many of them feel empowered and take away some good learning from his presentation. As a school, we welcome Marcus and always enjoy hearing and watching him inspire and motivate our students, helping them to realise their full potential.” – Russell Shem, Campus Principal – Alpine School Campus, Victoria

“Your presentation impacted the way I goal set with the students. It is definitely kid friendly and impactful.” – Randy Bowen, High School Counselor, Community Health Academy, New York, New York

“Both your life experience and your characterization of how you and others might achieve dreams was inspiring. You spoke at just the right time in our students lives when they have dreams but feel somewhat tentative about about expressing themselves and confused about how to approach realising their vision for their future. You helped them to better understand the difference between dreams and goals. Additionally you gave them an approach that will allow heir passions to take shape in action.  All the faculty felt this way.” – Judy Sheridan, Principal, Claremont Prep College, New York, New York
