Quote: “It’s my job to entertain, engage and inform at the highest level possible.” Mark Schulman
Over the past several months we’ve been taking a close look at speakers who are making virtual presentations work to their advantage. When speaking with Diane Goodman of Goodman Speakers, one name kept coming up in the conversation…Mark Schulman. So, on this episode of The Wealthy Speaker Show, I asked Mark to join me to talk about how he has successfully honed his offerings to a virtual platform and how he’s created his rock star life.
Mark has enjoyed an unprecedented career over the last 30 years as a first call drummer for world-class rock and pop artists. He has been voted ‘Top 3 Pop-Rock Drummers’ in the 2014 and 2019 Modern Drummer Readers Poll and was the featured cover artist in the May 2019 issue. Mark has done four record breaking world tours with P!NK and is featured in 3 of her DVDs. Mark has also played with Cher since 1999 including her two biggest tours, ‘Believe’ and ‘Farewell Tour’.
Mark’s resume reads like a “Who’s Who” of international Rock n’ Roll royalty including acts such as BILLY IDOL, FOREIGNER, SHERYL CROW, STEVIE NICKS, BEYONCE’ and so many other world–class artists. He has drummed with VELVET REVOLVER at Ozzfest and for a crowd of 225,000 at Glastonbury Festival with SIMPLE MINDS. Mark’s book ‘Conquering Life’s Stage Fright’ shows people in all industries how to harness doubt, fear and anxiety as it relates to any performance or presentation and transform that into clarity, capability and confidence.
