Mark Topley FICRS, BEd (Hons)
I can help you bring your workplace to life by coaching you and inspiring your team as you create a purpose-driven and responsibly-led organisation.
I am both a qualified educator and accredited CSR professional. I began my career in teaching and community project management over two decades ago, and in the time since I have honed my skills in a huge variety of teams; including charities, governments, schools, consumer healthcare and even the music industry.
I’ve seen first-hand that common strength shared by all successful organisations - a sense of community and responsibility.
I've used my experience to develop a CSR coaching program to help businesses engage their teams, develop their communities, and grow together with a common sense of purpose.
Back in 2003, I entered the world of Oral Health, which by 2006 had taken my wife Jo and I to Tanzania; where we joined the founders of the charity Bridge2Aid to provide emergency dental training to rural health workers.
Over the next 10 years, we worked alongside multiple governments, as well as companies both large and small. We had to get used to the challenges and frustrations of growing a business and develop a style of working where we supported one another.
This period of growth saw our core team expand from four people to fifty, as well as over five hundred dedicated volunteers. As our annual turnover grew from £30k to almost £1 million, we felt the benefit of an environment where every team member knew their worth.
I understand the pressure of leading a team, of developing trust and cooperation between both co-workers and customers, and the rewards of growing a business that you can be proud of.
