Leading People & Business

– Morning Seminar Event –

- Friday March 29th 8.30am - 12.30pm -

Potent Leadership Development

Leaping forward in your leadership ability is primarily a matter of knowing what activities actually matter.

We are constantly  bombarded with so much nonsense and noise about ‘what a leader is’ and ‘what makes a great one’, but this is often idealism that transfers poorly to front line problems.

At this event, experience the ease that comes when you understand the absolute core of your role as a leader and how to elegantly execute on it.

“Mark had the respect of the playing group because of not only recounting stories of his own upbringing which was easily identifiable by my group but also his work with world class athletes”
Gary Ayres – 5 x AFL Premiership Player

You can expect:

A room full of leaders and their teams

Content that will fast track your progress

Potent round-table discussion

Extraordinary network

Remarkable insight into creating chemistry in your team

Mark available for questions afterwards

An energising morning with plenty of laughter

Much of ‘succeeding’ in life is about knowing where to put your effort. Work ethic is required but the return on that effort only occurs if you were working on potent activities.


This event will fast track  your leadership capacity into the new era.

Specifically Mark looks at how leadership principles are practically applied to complex business and people scenarios. Including how to:

~ Lead when faced with massive uncertainty in your industry, team or situation

~ Unite and move people in one direction

~ Inspire performance and the ‘give a sh##’ factor in your people

~ Transition yourself to the next tier of leadership

Mark’s expertise in elegant strategy means his presentation is packed with leadership hacks that will make you better, faster.

Highly interactive and entertaining, this event will rejuvenate your passion and dormant ability.

Come on your own or book a table for your team or clients.

“Dobbo was pivotal in growing us 300% above the industry growth rate and becoming Australian specialised retailer of the year. He is a gold mine of strategy and insights, collected from all the incredible people he has worked with. Gold!”

Brad Smith – CEO braaap Motorcycles


Mark has spent twenty-five years in the trenches alongside CEO’s, world champion athletes, innovators, and pioneers. His clients are elite performers from every sphere – true outliers.

CEOs seek out Dobbo when they need to bypass the ‘yes men’ and cut through the rhetoric, crystalizing elegant strategy to improve their people and the bottom line.

Athletes come to Dobbo for his ability to maintain their edge when they’re winning and guide them when the path to victory seems insurmountable.

Evidence of his craft, athletes under his guidance have won medals in three Olympics, two Winter X Games, multiple World Championships and have broken seven world records.

His corporate clients such the big four banks, Energy Australia, Finstra, MotorOne, FleetPartners and braaap motorcycles have seen division or company-wide improvements in efficiency, morale and results. While the Early College Dobbo was a founding member of in New York City, which fast tracked students by two academic years, was praised by former President Barack Obama for its educational innovation. Dobbo truly understands elite communities and what it takes to create them.

He will bring you a fresh level of clarity around your leadership, performance and business success.
