Mark Laudi is a mentor in media and presentation skills to senior business and political leaders, and a sought-after speaker, conference anchor and panel moderator at business conferences. His specialization is in "mission critical" B2B communications, including media and public speaking, and crisis communications. This follows a 14-year award-winning career in radio and television. At CNBC Asia Pacific, he held almost every position in the newsroom: behind the camera he was Producer and Australia Editor, and in front of the camera he was Stock Reporter, Anchor and Field Reporter.
At age 28, Mark launched CNBC Australia in Sydney as Bureau Chief. In Singapore, he was a member of the inaugural production and presentation team of English-language talk radio station 938LIVE. He started his media career at age 21, becoming Australia's youngest radio current affairs show host at ABC Radio. Having spent many years in South Africa, Germany and Australia, Mark has called Singapore home for almost 20 years. This means he competently straddles both Asian and Western societies and is able to put the cultural traits and customers of one, into the context of the other.
Mark conducts Media & Presentation Skills MasterClasses and crisis communications workshops for senior executives at a large number of multinationals in a wide range of industries, such as financial services, technology, logistics and pharmaceuticals. Also fluent in German, Mark has coached many senior executives in Asia and the Middle East, covering both media skills as well as public speaking engagements and conference presentations. Most of his clients are multinational companies, which engage Mark frequently to coach new senior executives because of his depth of research and ability to link presentation skills with their key business outcomes.
