Mark’s journey from a classically trained cellist to the first-call drummer for the world’s top artists like P!NK, Billy Idol, Stevie Nicks, Foreigner, Sheryl Crow, Cher, and a host of other world-class artists showcases the immense power of attitude, transformation, and the relentless pursuit of excellence.

“I’ve learned about the importance of attitude as part of the touring family with these great performers,” Mark says as he unpacks the secrets of rockstar performance. His presentations translate lessons learned during his remarkable career into valuable tips for organizations, teams, leaders, and those who want to be their absolute best.

With over 32 years of electrifying stages worldwide, he not only brings unparalleled energy to music but also translates this dynamism into motivational speaking, where he becomes the bridge between the pulsating heart of rock ‘n’ roll and transformative business and corporate leadership. As a cancer survivor, Mark's resilience and vitality infuse his keynotes, where he shares the secrets of rockstar performance, emphasizing attitude's role in driving extraordinary outcomes.

His published works, including Conquering Life’s Stage Fright and The Attitude Equation, extend his philosophy to all, laying out a blueprint for harnessing fear into confidence and transforming attitude into action.

As a passionate educator and advocate, Mark’s dedication extends off-stage through his work with Create Now! and the Teenage Cancer Trust, showcasing his commitment to using art for change. His unique approach to speaking combines these elements into a message that resonates deeply with corporate audiences, offering not just inspiration but practical tools for personal and professional development.

“You were a thrill to work with, and your message and presentation was so much fun and inspiring.”

Director of Communications, The National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors

“I'm the one that went out on a limb. I'm the one that saw Mark speak. And I'm the one that brought the idea of him speaking to my team. They watched the video, but they still weren’t totally sold, and I needed to vouch. And what I said is, ‘trust me, this will be something unbelievable.’ And then they said, ‘…but the problem is it's going to be at 4:30 in the afternoon. Can this guy pull it off?!’ And what I'm here to tell you is he didn't just pull it off, he blew them out of their seat!! And that's not even the craziest part. The craziest part is that there was a lineup of over 50 people who took some of the most fantastic pictures with Mark, behind the drum set. And here's the thing, you don't do that unless the speaker has made a difference in your life. And {Mark} did that!”

President and Co-founder, Allego

“I’ve had the opportunity to see Mark Schulman’s keynote on two different  occasions and each time came away inspired to think and act differently.  By integrating music, visuals and a powerful speaking style, Mark is a  unique performer in a world of talking heads. In one instance, I saw him  convince a group of local government employees to form a drum line,  leading to some real a-ha moments about team work and collaboration. 

I  would heartily recommend him for any corporate or association event  that wants to bring in someone that can “shake things up” and give solid take away value at the same time”.”

Tim Sanders
Chief Solutions Officer, YAHOO!

“You should have a dose of Mark every morning. A great presentation!”

SAP Software Solutions

Rockwell Automation

“It was fabulous! It was specific to us. Everyone really enjoyed it.”

Dell Technologies

“You captured their hearts, motivated and inspired – but even more, you honored them by your willingness to participate.”

David L. White
President, YAP

“It’s not easy to get a standing ovation from a corporate audience; Mark got two! Mark Schulman’s keynote address was truly a great success and made me, the event planner, look like a Rock Star!”

Marketing Events Manager, Infor Global Solutions

“I GOT TO listen to a WONDERFUL & INSPIRATIONAL speaker! Mark was a great choice and I left the meeting feeling very motivated for life in general. GREAT JOB”

Angela English
Angela English, Human Resources Generalist,

“He was literally amazing. Hands down the best keynote we’ve ever had. On top of it all he’s just a great guy. He spent the entire day (and night) with us. Spoke to and took photos with every attendee that approached him. He even jumped in and performed at our attendee party with our corporate rock band. This is going to be hard to top next year, so start thinking!!!”

Meeting Planner, The New York Tech Summit

“Thank you again [for] the passion and caring you put into the sessions with our teams. They are still reflecting on the positive experience and how they enjoyed the time with you.”

Managing Director, Optus Business

“Thanks for all of the effort you put into our presentation and the time you spent with us. I LOVE your energy!”


“Oh my God, you rocked it! It was just what we hoped for, Mark. You brought energy, passion, and you’re just a rockstar! Now we have a whole house of rockstars!”


“Your energy is infectious; you walk onstage with a command and presence that everybody responds to. But most of all your messaging was on point talking about attitude, moving passion to purpose. ABC was off the charts. You connect with people, my friend. You’ve got an inner warmth that just resonates. You rocked it!”
