Mark has been speaking professionally since 1978. His professional speaking was an extension of his theater background and corporate marketing and advertising experience. When a guest speaker did not "show" for a regional marketing event Mark was asked to step in.
"What a terrific, motivational and uplifting presentation you made at our Kick-Off Rally. Our salespeople thoroughly enjoyed the important message you humorously presented!" B. Wolfe, Field Operations Manager, Toyota Motors
"As our guest speaker, you surpassed anyone that had previously been with us." Jack Parkinson, Division President, Sunroad Enterprises
"You are a tremendous speaker. Everyone was greatly impressed and grateful to you for bringing this great message." Anna Dewey, President, Women V.I.P.'s
Mark's ability to educate by way of motivational speaking arises out of his long experience with and constant vision for the development of the auto industry. Since 1975, Mark has been around the block many times. He has experienced great success working with the auto industry and its eclectic characters and companies. One thing must be said - Mark Price has knowledge about this business. While many people will claim to have the same, few have experienced auto sales in the dimensions Mark has. He is in the business of sharing this knowledge from time to time and this process of sharing has evolved into our motivational speaking programs. These speaking engagements are many and vary from ten minute sales rallies to full blown two day seminars in which sales and customer service strategies are taught.

Commentator - Television/Radio/Debates
Mark is aware that when one involves themselves and takes a stand you risk upsetting and alienating others. But he strongly believes that if you don't stand for something you risk falling for anything. Mark believes that we are a healthier nation, a healthier people when we engage in debate on the important issues of the day. He believes, however, that for the debate to be useful and productive it must be OPEN, HONEST, CIVIL & RESPECTFUL. You may disagree with Mark's positions but you can't say he was anything but OPEN, HONEST, CIVIL & RESPECTFUL.
Mark believes very strongly in the words of Edmund Burke "All that is required for the triumph of evil is for good men (people) to do nothing." Therefore, Mark from a very early age, has involved himself in the affairs of State. He ran for the California State Assembly in 1998. He lost and then ran for a Planning Board and a school board. He won both of those elections and served 12 years, most as Chairman, of a Planning Board. He completed his12th year as an elected member of a school board in December of 2012. He also served as a co-chair with Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's Education Reform Coalition.
Mark has often been called on by radio & television to offer his perspective on the issues of the day. He has also been asked, on many occasions over the years, to serve as a surrogate speaker & debater at universities and on television and radio.
In addition to the time for the presentation, Mark is also available for questions and answers with those in attendance.
We look forward to hearing from you.
