Add To Speakers List

From being one of Britain’s greatest swimmers who won countless World Championship medals to becoming an inspirational LGBT+ role model, Mark Foster can bring a plethora of knowledge and talent to every speaking event he attends. While he’s best known for his exploits in the pool, Mark has also become a familiar face on British TV, specifically as a broadcaster and pundit on some of swimming’s biggest events including the Olympic Games and World Championships. The charisma and engaging personality that is so well-loved on the television can be seamlessly transferred to both corporate and social occasions, with Mark able to take on the role of host or speaker depending on what you require.

In 2017, Mark publicly came out as gay for the first time. This incredibly daunting yet brave move, saw him receive a huge outcry of love and support as he was able to truly be himself in a public forum for the first time. This experience has made him become one of the most sought after diversity keynote speakers around, and he’s able to explain how liberating it felt to make this announcement when hired as a speaker. Plus, his own courage can help deliver reassurance and support to others suffering from similar worries.

Mark was first selected to represent Great Britain in 1985 when he was just 15, but his real breakthrough came in 1990 when he claimed a bronze medal at the Commonwealth Games in Auckland. From here, he quickly established himself as one of the most successful British swimmers of his generation, going on to win six World Championship titles, 11 European Championship titles and two Commonwealth Games titles. Despite all this success, he unfortunately never won a medal at the Olympics, and during his speaking events, he can also touch on this disappointment, while reflecting on the huge amount of success he did see.

Over the years Mark has also become a popular TV personality, appearing on the likes of Strictly Come Dancing, Through the Keyhole, Celebrity Juice and more.
