About Mark Horner

I am an Executive Coach and Business Mentor with a growing team of regional directors across Africa and America and beyond, helping me reach ambitious business owners across the globe. I am a successful business owner myself with a long established specialism in database publishing for largely American Universities, as well as my own niche Architectural practice based close to London in Kent/Sussex England.

I am a seasoned networking professional with rich experience of over 20 years, with BNI building networking groups and travelling world-wide, mentoring and connecting businesses of all sizes and helping them achieve massive growth. I am currently ranked in the top 10 on BNI Business Builder. In addition I am a clear strategic thinker, fully qualified as an architect and accredited by the Royal Institute of British Architects. With my Architectural Firm I work on a variety of International Projects, ranging from Business Parks, Offices, Development Projects, One-off houses and heritage projects. Taking maximum advantage from my past professional experience, combing business growth and strategic thinking, I am now pursuing my passion as an Executive Coach, mentoring SME Owners throughout the world to take their businesses to the next level.

I coach entrepreneurs to resolve internal conflicts, help them make aligned decisions and ensure they take action. I am inspired by the entrepreneurial leadership and “can-do” attitude, and believe anything is possible. I am keen to work with the businesses community serving their local area and contribute towards strengthening the local SME sector. Stronger SME’s means more employment in the local economy, after all!

At the heart of a powerful network

I leverage the solid IP of The Alpha Group to run monthly Peer-to-Peer Advisory Boards which are underpinned by Peer Mentoring, FastGrowthTM Projects, Mastermind Sessions and Accountability. I find it truly rewarding when SME Owners and CEOs work towards their goals knowing that it is not “lonely at the top” and that they can positively contribute to their own and fellow Peers’ scaling up challenges. Through The Alpha Group I have found a powerful way to reach more SME’s to help them double the value of their businesses within 2 to 3 years and to dominate their niche.

I am a graduate in moral philosophy, with a keen interest in how human development and business development inter-relate and I am currently finalising my first book on the subject which will be available shortly through my publishing company. I am a fellow of the The Royal Society for Arts, Manufactures and Commerce, The RSA, whose past fellows include Benjamin Franklin, Stephen Hawking, Adam Smith and Tim Berners-Lee. I am a keen supporter of Universal Basic Income and I am am interested in how the UBI can help Entrepreneurs, and I am an active member of UBILab Leeds. I actively support local and global charities and help out with junior chess coaching. I love travel, meeting people, books, music, food and wine.

If you are a business owner or manager serving your local community with experience of running a company with a staff of 10 or more or an annual sales revenue of $500,000+ or more, then you likely have the right experience and attitude to help other business owners just like yourself. In that case let’s connect to explore how being a member of The Alpha Group will take your business to the next level and double your value within 2/3 years.
