Mark Smith

To be what we are, and to become what we are capable of becoming, is the only end in life.
Baruch Spinoza
Mark is the owner of Wildcats Coaching and Training Specialists.
Mark’s reputation for coaching and leadership speaks for itself. Mark Smith has created, run and facilitated many highly successful interventions and teams in the banking, financial services, telephony, broadcasting, FMCG, insurance IT and the Contact Centre industry.
He is a catalyst for change, leadership and performance. His approach is to blend strategic consulting with facilitation of delivery and leadership coaching.
He has worked with large corporate organisations across recruitment, talent management, leadership development and other learning and development initiatives.
His ethos is ‘get the people right, and the processes follow’. To this end he has become an expert in aligning teams, enabling individual performance and mature leadership.
The success of many interventions is derived from imparting coaching skills to management who create their own internal change, leading to organisational change. This methodology has proven highly successful with clients such as Telesure, ABSA, Standard CIB, Raiffeisen Bank (Austria), FNB & Barclays as well as British Gas.
Mark uses his skills in consulting to organisations around leadership, change, performance, quality management, training and coaching, with a major emphasis on human performance strategy.
Earning his Associate Certified Coach qualification with the International Coach Federation in 2011, he is highly sought after as a coach and a facilitator of change in oranisations. He was a founding member of the ICF Gauteng Chapter.
Mark has become a mentor and assessor for international coaches who are seeking their ICF certification through the Neuroleadership Group. This has given him great pleasure and global exposure to those coaches who are often senior managers or directors of large organisations.
