EDIT: These workshops were very well received when I ran them in 2010 – if you’d like to book my time management training, motivation training or presentation skills training workshops for your organisation, or join the waiting list for the next public events, please follow the links for full details.
I’m running two of my most popular workshops in London next month, so if you’re in that part of the world it would be great to see you:
Time Management for Creative People — 7 July
Manage the mundane – create the extraordinary. Essential skills to maximise your creativity and minimise your stress levels at work.
In this time management training session I give you the inside track on my own working habits and show you how to use the same principles to turbo-charge your creative output while keeping on top of those pesky e-mails and other incoming demands. It includes the core structure I use to organise my workflow, which I’ve never published online.

How to Motivate Creative People (Including Yourself) — 14 July
Motivate yourself to overcome obstacles and create amazing work – and a sustainable career.
In the motivation training workshop I show you how to use four powerful types of motivation to fire yourself up for work on a daily basis, even when things get tough. I also explain why the right type of motivation is critical to creative performance, and how to avoid some of the most common creativity killers.
Details and booking here: Motivation Training
The workshops are designed for creatives of all descriptions — artists, freelancers, entrepreneurs, and anyone else who takes their creativity seriously.
I’ll be tailoring the sessions to the specific needs of each group – when you book your place, I’ll send you some questions about what you want to get out of it, which will help me target the issues that are most important to you.
The workshops are designed to work equally well as standalone sessions, or to complement each other if you take both. There’s also a special offer if you book both events together.
Places will be strictly limited to 25 per group and allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.
Here’s the booking page (with secure payment via credit card or Paypal):
I hope you can join us!

Time Management Training
“Clear, intelligent and genuinely useful material.”
Thomas Heath, thomasheath.tv
“I liked the way the ideas for managing time were uncomplicated and realistic enough to start fitting them into your everyday life.”
Candida Bradley, candipops.com
“The content was clear and can be easily applied.”
Jacob Sam-La Rose, jacobsamlarose.com
“This was nothing like I expected and much better than I expected. Made me look at how I work and why I work, in a completely different way. Mark has a very laid back style which is great.”
Sarah Turner, turnerink.co.uk
“The group size was just right. The distinctions worked well, and gave me a different way of thinking about motivation. The material is interesting and well presented. An enjoyable and worth-while workshop!”
David Stevens, musicforspecialneeds.com
“I really liked the way you related the issues of the talk with stories which you almost acted out! It was interesting relating problems which you experience yourself to other people who have succeeded – it made it seem more achievable! I really enjoyed it, a really comfortable atmosphere was created and the group seemed to get on well. Thank you!”
Candida Bradley, candipops.com
“I liked your presentation style. I think it was the first time in a long while when I actually was captured by a presentation and the content and listened to what you had to say.”
