Marc Koska OBE

“Marc Koska came to the University of Sussex to deliver a keynote talk to our students and staff as part of our Enterprise programme. Marc's talk was an open, honest and moving account of his 20 year battle to bring one-use syringes to third world countries and raise awareness of the dangers involved in being treated by unethical medics. Marc's down to earth approach both in giving us the highs and lows of starting and running an organisation and also in engaging the audience ensured that both students and staff are still talking about his presentation. With his talk, Marc captivated the audience from the start, and his calm delivery style ensured that both students and staff were not shy in coming forward to ask questions afterwards, and also join him for the follow-up networking sessi

“Marc is one of the most passionate and professional people I have come across. The commitment that he has shown towards the NZCC events as emcee and event host is truly commendable. Marc hosted our Waitangi Day celebrations on 2015 and 2016 with great success, artfully engaging with the crowds as well with our Corporate Partners and special guests. Marc has a lot of experience and drive, which makes him stand out from the rest.”

"Marc was a fantastic emcee at our live runway event for the finale of Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 3. His energy is infectious and comedic timing unparalleled. I would have Marc emcee any event that requires getting a crowd warmed and keeping them there!

Mandy Hickson

I just wanted to let you know that we have had many speakers in the past, some really well known like Ranulph Fiennes who have all been quite excellent. But the feedback we had from our sales team about your talk was without exception the best ever. Really well done, thank you. Your story is a great one but the way you link it to our company goals was ‘spot-on’ and made it more useful. I would have no hesitation in recommending you as the best speaker we have employed and we’ve been doing this for 15 years!

Mandy Hickson

Mandy’s true ability was to capture the essence of team working, resilience and the importance of leadership within a context of energy, enthusiasm, commitment and humour. This was not only by using her own experiences, which in themselves were exceptional but she had also researched our organisation and weaved our own Trust values and mission statement into her presentation. Mandy’s messages cross any and all boundaries and I would suggest apply in any setting. It was a real pleasure for us to spend time with her.’

Alison Moon, Chief Nurse, Bristol NHS Foundation Trust.

Mandy, great to meet you. Your session was particularly well received. I am delighted I was able to stay to hear you talk. Your story is very inspirational and I recognised many of the challenges you have faced as a woman in a predominantly male world as these issues are industry agnostic. I am sure we could spend hours sharing our war stories (literal and metaphorical !). I do all I can to help the next generation navigate these challenges and not experience the same difficulties as those who have gone before. You are clearly doing the same!.
