"Mark’s coaching and workshops have been critical in helping us understand the new possibilities inherent in a community approach to our work.

"The health care industry is changing rapidly due to technological advances, regulatory changes, and disruptive business models. To succeed, we need to transform how we engage our customers, mobilize our resources, and compete in the marketplace.

Mark led workshops for both the executive team and marketing team with a remarkable level of energy, insight and engagement. Everyone left with a shared language and mindset that has dramatically improved our ability to collaboratively design and execute our vision for the future."

"We have a small team but a big vision: to be the destination and community that inspires and satisfies people's curiosity about topics that matter. We knew where we wanted to go, but weren't sure how to get there. Mark Bonchek and Shift Thinking re-energized and aligned our team around our original vision. We even saw how the so-called leaders of our industry were still stuck in old ways of thinking. Our Shift Journey gave our diverse team of digital natives and industry veterans a shared language for creating exponential results."

– Tia Cudahy, Chief Operating Officer, CuriosityStream
 

 
 

"Mark is the secret weapon of executives who wish to lead in a digital age. Mark's extraordinary ability is synthesizing the perspectives of multiple senior stakeholders, and crystallizing a unified direction and approach that is provocative and differentiated, yet so clear and simple that people who rarely agree on anything all say 'of course!' "

– Gene Cornfield, Managing Director, Accenture Digital
