Mark Essex is the Course Director for KPMG’s Family Business Leadership Academy. Our flagship programme helps the next generation to hone the skills to lead in a macro-economic environment very different from the one the previous generation faced.
Mark has a background in business modelling, strategy and public policy across sectors. Since 2016 he’s being helping clients with problems without a playbook. Think Brexit, Covid, and hybrid working. Now he helps clients attract and retain the best people in a seller’s market for talent.
