Mark Powell

Strategist, consultant, teacher and entrepreneur

Mark Powell is an experienced strategy consultant who has worked all over the world with a particular focus on preparing energy companies to meet the challenges of increasingly global competitive markets.

Along the way, he has taken time out from his consulting career to set-up a broad range of innovative businesses in such diverse markets as motorsport, media and environmental information management.

Mark has spent much of his career as a business and strategy consultant. A former partner at Accenture, he has also held Senior Executive roles in the IT and Financial Services sectors. He has a Masters Degree in Economics and a PhD in Management.

Mark has a passion for the future and how organisations need to adapt and change their mindsets if they are to remain competitive. This has been reflected in a passion for teaching seen in the work he does as an Associate Fellow at Oxford's SAID Business School where he helps to develop programmes for helping organisations change the mindsets of their senior executives and to help them create new futures.

"There are only two types of organisations, those that create their futures and those that adapt to other's strategies. The rest just whither and die."
