Executive Coaching

With Mark Dobson

Mark Dobson – Executive Coach & Advisor

Mark Dobson is truly Australia’s best kept performance secret.

Even before COVID hit Mark was already migrating his CEO and Executive clients to leadership models that would work for remote teams.

Mark guided CBA Third Party Banking to go virtual well before COVID and it took their broker audience from 700 to 12,000 for 15% of the cost of their previous model. When COVID hit, CBA Third Party Banking were light years ahead of the industry.

“In our data we also noticed higher engagement scores and higher productivity as a result of not having to travel for the event.”

Adam Croucher CEO – CBA Third Party Banking

His invention of The Micro Library – concise business strategy for teams, means that leaders can have their people trained and aligned within a few minutes of recognising a problem, rather than the weeks it previously took to organise new training. And for the price of a coffee rather than the budgets available before covid.

For several government departments, through Covid disruption, Mark has been facilitating multi-day online conferences that navigate complex discussion around departmental vision, purpose, culture and strategy. These conferences have 60+ senior leaders attending, utilising zoom and mural for engagement, with all feedback being that participants aren’t even tired at the end and that Mark’s coaching and models have been invaluable.

In the peak of lockdown Mark was regularly presenting to audience of 1500 to 4000, using his experience of leading remote teams to nail with engagement and content.

Mark really, truly understand how elite performance and leadership intersect.

Athletes under his guidance have won medals in three Olympics, two Winter X Games, multiple World Championships, and have broken seven World Records.  He has been a trusted advisor to CEO’s and Executives at NAB, Specislized Bicycles, CBA, Melbourne Festival, FleetPartners, The Practice and to over 100 SMEs. Also to the Australian Swimming Coach Ian Pope and in tern his swimmers Grant Hackett, Matt Targett, Marieke Guehrer and others.

Such is Mark’s immersion in performance projects, in 2009 President Barack Obama acknowledge New York City project which Mark was a founding member of. Bard High School early college fast tracked student by two academic years and as a result the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has built 63 universities using that model.

Mark is astute, funny, engaging and will get the you the outcome you need.  He comes with an extensive toolkit of leadership skills which he can adapt to both the toughest and most educated of audiences.
