"I attended a conference that featured Mark Hoog’s talk on Conscious Leadership. I’m not sure I’ve ever heard a more pertinent message than the one he delivered. He took everything I believe in my core and articulated it in such a way that helped me understand my purpose as a leader with more clarity than ever before. I think it’s rare to find people who are passionate about life! It was fantastic to meet someone that believes he can make a difference (and in fact is on this earth to do so!) I purchased his books for my three children – from age 3-18! They are all in different places in their lives, but the message is perfect for each of them. And it’s perfect for me too – it’s amazing that his message transcends all ages and boundaries. He is a very humble man and spoke straight from his heart (he didn’t even use notes!) His message is etched into my heart and I will reflect daily on what I have done to make a difference for all those around me.

I am so inspired and encouraged by his message and his books and will be forever grateful for having had the opportunity to cross paths with this remarkable man.
