Marcus has been a lead facilitator with Be Challenged for over 5 years, running a wide variety of team building programs and consistently ensuring organisations achieve their goals and desired outcomes. Prior to joining the team at Be Challenged, Marcus had many years as a professional rugby union player and coach, working all around the world including Japan, Germany and NZ. On and off the sporting field as well as during a 5-year stint in Japan at Honda Motor Company’s International Logistics and Operations Division the power of team work and collaboration was continually highlighted, and Marcus recognised these as the cornerstones for success in any organisation.
Through his studies of a Bachelor of Arts (Psychology) and Advanced Diploma of Sports Marketing, Marcus furthered his theoretical knowledge on team development, while playing and coaching in professional team environments around the world provided him with the practical tools to nurture strong and effective team work.
Outside of work Marcus is sports mad and enjoys nothing better than watching or participating in a wide range of sports. He is an avid tennis player as well as touch rugby player. He also loves hanging out with his beautiful wife and young daughter on the Northern Beaches.
