Mark is a native of Ipswich having grown up in the town and attended Northgate high school, before leaving to attend Kent University where he gained a degree and Economic and politics and then moving to start his career in London where he toyed with accountancy and stints at Law firms Herbert Smith and Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer . Mark then moved back to Ipswich where he became a councillor in Ipswich briefly in the early 2000’s. Mark then worked for the home office but then was involved in running a BT bright star company. He then moved back to London to take up his current role as a Director for Investment Bank Credit Suisse.

Mark current owns Newton Hall Equitation in north Ipswich, Rush Developments and Skylimit Films. Mark talk will mainly focus on his experiences over the last 18 months with Newton Hall where he will document from start to finish the numerous challenges and difficulties which he has experienced. He will take you through the journey from the first idea, purchase, completion and operation of his new venture. He will explain in rather embarrassing detail all the trials and pitfalls of operating in one of the hardest industries in one of the most difficult of clients.
