IF NOT YOU, THEN WHO

Mark Price

OVERVIEW

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.


Testimonials
"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


Corporate Organizations
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.

Missions
Have you thought about your next parish mission?


In light of all that is happening in our world today; terrorism, war, scandal, layoffs, has there ever been a better time in our history to refocus on things spiritual?  To take time for a renewed look at discovering and growing in our Faith?


Mark has been conducting missions and retreats since 1975 and presenting Biblical portrayals since 1984.  The portrayals of Biblical characters adds a personal dimension that arouses greater interest in scripture and brings to life the message of Christ and the church in a very unique way.  Who better to encourage your parishioners to a closer walk and understanding of Jesus than those who knew Him best?


Mark offers missions of up to three nights; two nights, using my Biblical portrayals and one night of theological reflection on the liturgical season.  This mission can be offered any time during the year, but is especially poignant during Advent and Lent.


Saint Joseph the father of Jesus will encourage all to become the Holy Family God wants us to be.


Simon Peter reminds all that we represent the future, that we are a Holy nation, the true church of Christ, chosen by God to proclaim the glory of His Son.


Judas Iscariot reminds us that as he failed, so can we. There is a part of him in each and every one of us.  The night I perform Judas would be a perfect opportunity to follow-up with a Penance service.


Doubting Thomas questioned the resurrection of Jesus.  He said he would never believe that Jesus was alive unless he put his fingers into His wounds.


Paul the Apostle is responsible for one half of the New Testament.  A persecutor of the followers of Jesus who becomes one of His most ardent evangelists.


Saint Luke is responsible for the Gospel of Luke and the Acts of the Apostles.  He traveled with Paul and likely mended Paul's wounds using his skill as a physician.  He was a Greek gentile who converted.  (60 minutes)  


Saint Francis of Assisi is the most popular Saint in the world.  He is loved for his devotion to Christ, the poor,peace and nature.  (60 minutes)  


After an evening’s portrayal, he usually return to the audience, out of costume, to expand on the message.  Mark does extensive research for each Biblical portrayal and will share his exegetical, practical and personal experience of each character, as well as answer any questions there might be.

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.


Community

Mark has been asked many times to involve himself in community efforts.  He has been in many debates and has advocated on television and radio for the needs of his and other local communities.  Mark has moderated town hall forums on subjects from tax reform to immigration.

Politics
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 is in his 12th year as an elected member of a school board.  He also served as a co-chair with Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's Education Reform Coalition.  Below are a few of Mark's political television appearances:
