Testimonials for Mark Barton
“Mark was a superb host, striking just the right balance between the seriousness of the evening (since the award entries covered everything from war in Syria to child sexual abuse) and engaging the audience through just the right amount of humour to keep the evening lively.”
“Mark Barton chaired a plenary panel entitled ‘Global Governance in a Changing World’ at the 2019 Horasis Global Meeting in Cascais, Portugal. Mark was very charismatic, sharp-witted and engaging throughout the panel, which featured Former Prime Minister of Romania Dacian Ciolos, Former Prime Minister of Belgium Yves Leterme, Portugal’s Minister of Economy Pedro Siza Vieira and Former President of Slovenia Danilo Türk. Mark is an absolute pleasure to work with and I highly recommend him as a conference moderator and host.”
