The following is an example of his 7 ACT program that can be customized to your needs:
Act 1: ATTITUDE ROCKS! INTRO
Mark performs a medley with video. He then engages the audience with a finely-crafted interactive team- building program, which uses drums as a metaphor to create harmony from two or more different sounds that are independent in contour and rhythm. Mark then exemplifies the drum exercise with entertaining road stories, including how attitudes create behavior and behavior determines results. He further inspires through additional multimedia performances.
Act 2:HARMONIZING ADVERSITY
Having experienced some comical and tragic adversity through his experiences as a rock n roll musician, Mark shares his light hearted yet potent stories of how he has continued to transform adversity into opportunity
Act 3: EVERY NOTE MATTERS
Mark tells a humorous and compelling story about transforming the attitude of a ‘whiner’ into a ‘winner’. He then does an interactive performance with audience members, from the viewpoint of both attitudes, which is humorous and transformational. This interactive process is then employed between and among all audience members to instill the learning point through the activity.
Act 4: PLAYING YOUR GROOVE
Mark tells his story of a life changing experience on the road with P!NK and a process he shares with the audience that forever changes the way that they look at group dynamics and communication.
Act 5: OVERCOMING LIFE’S STAGE FRIGHT
Mark has developed a fun, immediate and highly effective process that participants can use to overcome nervousness and fear associated with giving presentations in front of any number of individuals or interviewing for a new position. This act ends with one lucky person (who has never played drums before) learning how to play a song on Mark’s drum set in less than five minutes!
Act 6: HI-FI HAVE-TO GET-TO
Mark tells his emotional story as a cancer ‘conqueror’ who uses his very powerful technique of turning his attitude of ‘have to’ into an attitude of ‘get to’. This unforgettable concept is then reinforced with another interactive group program. This act has historically produced immediate and unforgettable attitude shifts in each participant. Mark finishes this act with a drum performance dedicated to one of his family members, with a surprise twist...
Act 7: INTERACTIVE GROUP JAM
This act has the audience breaking into groups and working together to write original lyrics to well-known popular songs that reflect their experiences at work. They then get to perform them before their peers. This highly-entertaining and unifying process features not only individuals working together as groups to reveal their personal artistry but also builds the confidence to start showing how their Attitude Rocks!
