“Mark is a rare gem in the supply chain industry. There are many good experts but Mark is unique with his ability to capture audience’s attention, explain the most difficult processes in a simple way and leave each participant with a practical takeaway. His presentations are carefully prepared and backed with numerous facts, and he will stay until the very end of the event to make sure all questions from the guests are answered. Moreover, it’s a true pleasure and joy to work with Mark – all logistics and practical side of the event was sorted out very fast because of Mark’s quick responses and great collaboration. A highly recommended speaker!”

“Mark Millar has a unique ability to distill dynamic and complex trends within the global and regional logistics space for a wide audience of investors and industry professionals alike. His background and pertinent real-world examples highlighted throughout his book and presentations all allow participants to remain engaged, while also eliciting a fluid and open dialogue. As the sector continues to develop at a breakneck pace and becomes increasingly fragmented, industry expects like Mark, who can provide terrific context, will remain in high demand.”

“An amalgamation of enthusiasm and content, Mark’s authority on the subject is supreme.”

Kavea R Chavali, TV Host, Anchor and MC

“In the past 11 or so years, I've probably worked on over 400 conferences involving literally thousands of speakers. I can honestly say that I've never come across so many top marks on delegate feedback forms for a speaker than I have with Mark.

When you put on an event, the speakers are simply fundamental to its success and I would not hesitate to recommend Mark. Not just extremely knowledgeable, but truly engaging. He leaves a lasting memory and that's probably got a lot to do with the fact that he's also just a really nice guy who has time for even the simplest of questions.

He's also incredibly good value for money, which is why we've used him a few times now (and for us to go back to the same speaker time and again is saying something). Highly recommended."

Dan Stone, Events & Marketing Director, Akabo Media Ltd

“It was a privilege to be part of this year’s Supply Chain and Logistics Asia Summit held at Ritz-Carlton Millenia Singapore attended by top-notch speakers and supply chain experts from around the region. Noteworthy, is the presentation of renowned business guru of the industry, Mark Millar.  Having attended quite a few conferences where Mark is either a keynote speaker or moderator, and as expected, he never fails to keep his audience engaged and amused with his highly relevant industry knowledge and witty humour! I remember so well that the room was packed with “all-eared” audience with some who can’t help giggle despite the set business- tone of the summit.”

“Pleasure was mine to meet such honored and highly educating person like you. I heard you for the first time and both the presentations were short and sweet but were presented with full detailing. you had us hold the seats from the beginning till the end. I felt that the presentation should have given some 15 min. more. anyways that must be the organizers look out . but i enjoyed it thoroughly. Heard you at the CFN 2010 annual meeting at Macau on "empowering independent forwarders" and "green logistics" and could feel the energy with which you were speaking pass through us right from beginning till the last. Can’t hold myself back by saying- mark you are mark above the others when it comes to knowledge and binding with your audiences and getting their mind and ears all to yourself”
