The workplace is a microcosm of the multicultural world in which we live. The one common denominator among the various cultures, and social and political views is music. It may be the beat, the lyrics, the vocals or a combination of them all that brings diverse people together for common enjoyment. The same is true about Mark’s presentation. An A list celebrity drummer, speaker Mark Schulman incorporates performance, audience interaction and participation and video to create the ultimate learning environment.
Mark encourages, challenges and inspires participants to step beyond their perceived limitations. As a speaker Mark Schulman draws from a wealth of life experiences as a musician, producer, author, published songwriter, philanthropist, cancer conqueror and father to deliver presentations that are completely energizing, entertaining and truly unique.
Additionally, there is no better example of harmony and group dynamics than a top-class band of musicians – think Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones or Beatles. Through the use of musical instruments and various team-building techniques, Mark will have even the musical novice participants, learn, thrive and thoroughly lose themselves in the harmony and sound of their musical band. That’s why Mark’s experience and knowledge as a world-class performer is the ultimate team-building metaphor.
Mark’s resume reads like a “Who’s Who” of international Rock n’ Roll royalty including acts such as P!NK, FOREIGNER, SHERYL CROW, STEVIE NICKS, DESTINY’S CHILD, BILLY IDOL, CHER (Mark was drummer on the ‘Believe’ and ‘Farewell’ tours, two of the most-attended tours in music history) UDO LINDENBERG and EIKICHI YAZAWA. He has drummed with VELVET REVOLVER at Ozzfest and for crowds of 200,000 at Glastonbury Festival with SIMPLE MINDS. Mark is the recipient of numerous Gold and Platinum discs and has appeared on nearly every American and European variety show on television including The Grammys, David Letterman, The Tonight Show, Conan O’Brian, Jon Stewart, American Idol, Paul O’ Grady, X-Factor, Wetten Das and more.
Music is not Mark’s only driving force; he was the chairman of the board of directors of Create Now!, a non-profit organization founded in 1996, to help change troubled children’s lives through creative arts mentoring. A cancer survivor himself, Mark has also motivated children and teens through his work doing seminars with the RONALD McDONALD HOUSE and benefits for the TEENAGE CANCER TRUST in the UK.
Mark’s content is entertainment that’s fun, exciting and workplace appropriate. He has been called a combination of Tony Robbins, Bono and Ringo!
