Mark Visser is Founder of The Elite Mindset Program, Big Wave Paddle-in Champion, Keynote Speaker and Author.

For the past 9 years Mark has been an influential coach to some of the worlds most successful individuals. Working with the likes of 11 x World Champion Kelly Slater, Olympic athletes, professional sporting teams, the Australian SAS and the USA Navy Seals. He has also been highly instrumental in the mindset development of CEO’s and global companies.

After many years of training, Mark Visser made history by surfing the notoriously dangerous 40-50ft waves at Jaws (Pe’ahi), Maui, in total darkness at night. Now globally known as Night Rider, this is a true world first achievement.

With passion and humility, Mark speaks from the heart about breathtaking events and realizing his dreams. Mark is a down to earth, natural speaker who is infectiously energetic and engaging.

By using his own experiences and challenges as an example, Mark’s presentation
covers how he accomplished his own goal and proved that the ‘impossible IS possible’. This presentation includes jaw dropping imagery and video content, inspiring his audiences to understand that any task can be achieved, with the right strategy.

While still actively pursuing his own career, Mark inspires others by sharing his story. Mark can be engaged as a keynote speaker for individuals, teams and organisations, giving them the drive to innovate, achieve and challenge their limits. Presentations can also be tailored to draw-out company ethos and key messages to assist in focusing on brand or club specific goals.

Recap of the vision and the plan going forward

It is not often that you have the opportunity to test your boundaries at a Conference breakfast. Mark had the ability to capture everyone’s attention and keep us on the edge of our seats, the room was so quite as everyone listened intently. The content was spot on and I have gone back to thinking on his message each day since.
