needed to have successful interactions with government officials."

WATCH THE REEL HERE


"Mark's presentation was highly entertaining. But as I was following that story, I realized there were some really good messages in it, and so I was writing down furiously all the good tips that were coming through it, but also laughing and engaging in the great story that he told."
