Mark has spent a lifetime analysing trends, understanding what drives them, and explaining their implications. He trained as a psychologist and led the research and strategy functions of technology companies before turning to work in tourism.
Having spent two decades telling people all over the world what a great country Ireland is, he is on a mission to prove that it’s true.

It will counter all the doom and gloom out there using real data that confirms what a great country Ireland is.”
