Experience

Marc brought varied and interesting professional experience with him when he joined the British Council’s PTC team in Sri Lanka in 2011. He had worked previously in the UK, the US and India with international corporations such as Virgin, Intel and Hyundai.

His background in consulting and legal work has made his sessions on Presentations and Advanced Business Writing, in particular, popular with a number of Sri Lankan firms such as MAS holdings, Commercial Bank and Millennium IT.

In addition to this, his background in teaching has also played a part in the many programmes he has developed for Sri Lankan companies over the years.  He mostly enjoys working with teams, empowering them to become more effective communicators through, what he calls, ‘strategic communication decisions’.

Working in Sri Lanka long term has meant that he has been a part of many of the partnerships that the British Council has built with some of the best and brightest Sri Lankan firms.  

Besides corporate training, Marc has also worked along with Government bodies such as the Ministry for External Affairs, Ministry for Economic Development and the Sri Lanka Tourism Development Authority and has assisted in the training of future Sri Lankan ambassadors.
