EventWell Ambassador and Co-founder Mark is the Sales and Marketing Director of Boulevard Events, a multi-award winning, family run event catering company founded by his parents in 1988 (when he was just 6 months old).
He comes from a family of food and catering entrepreneurs and spent most of his youth hanging around the kitchen in the family restaurant ‘Boulevard.’ After school he worked full-time as a Chef for Boulevard Catering before attending The University of Essex, where he studied Sports Science.
It was there that he found he had a passion for health and human performance and graduated with a first-class degree and the Scholar Athlete Award, an accolade given to the student who excels both academically and in sport. Mark then completed an Msd and was published in Medicine and Science in Sport and Exercise for his research into the physical activity and cardio-respiratory health of UK school children.
Mark has spent over a decade working on his own health and wellbeing, dedicating most of his spare time to learning about nutrition, exercise and sleep. He’s a strong advocate for health and tries to help others, wherever possible, to take better care of themselves.
Mark has worked in hospitality since he was a young teenager and as an event professional for the best part of a decade. Meanwhile he also helped his parents and siblings build a successful catering business, giving him a broad understanding of the many challenges we face in this industry.
His success as a sports scientist and his passion for health and human performance gives Mark a unique perspective of an industry that’s notoriously challenging to navigate, when it comes to maintaining good health behaviours. He brings an engaging, science-based approach to his talks, well positioned and uniquely relevant to event professionals who are looking to make health a bigger part of their life.
When Mark isn’t speaking to event professionals about health, he’s running his family events catering company with his brothers and sister.
