For the past two decades, Marc has been a corporate and personal trainer working with large and small companies. He’s a great believer that the secrets of great facilitation include: don’t overplan but do overprepare, bring positive energy, engage and activate the whole person, it’s not what you learn it’s what you do with it afterwards.
Marc worked for a number of years as a successful marketing executive with one of Canada’s largest financial institutions developing new products, ad campaigns, a customer website for secure and non-secure transactions, and supporting sales presentations. He has taught upper year finance at university, worked as a lead quant pricing embedded options, and run significant fund-raising campaigns for charitable organizations.
Marc understands that linear and lateral thinking only add up to two dimensions. Ants live in two dimensions, people live in four! thinkx provides the skills to move in the third dimension — structured engagement of the creative process — with outcomes that include effective meetings and problem solving.
He holds the Certified Employee Benefits Specialist designation along with advanced degrees in mathematics, physics and business. Marc is currently working towards a PhD in theoretical neuroscience in an attempt to crack the fourth dimension of thinking skills. As well as thinkx, Marc delivers poetry/writing workshops that are regularly rated top-box by attendees, many of whom return again and again.
