Mark Essex is the course director for KPMG’s Family Business Leadership Academy. This flagship programme helps the next generation to hone the skills to lead in a macro-economic environment very different from the one the previous generation faced.
Mark has a background in business modelling, strategy and public policy across sectors. Since 2016, he’s been helping clients with problems without a playbook - think Brexit, Covid and hybrid working. Now he helps clients attract and retain the best people in a seller’s market for talent.
For these challenges, there is limited data. Mark helps leaders to use other tools such as first principles analysis, systems thinking and looking to other times, sectors and markets for answers. And to use these plus imagination and courage to take decisions when the world is uncertain and ambiguous.
Mark is an experienced writer, thinker, keynote speaker and live broadcast panellist and presenter.
