Clive Davis gave us Janis Joplin, Earth Wind and Fire, Bruce Springsteen, Barry Manilow, Santana, Whitney Houston and a seemingly endless list of mega musicians and now Director Chris Perkel gives us “Clive Davis – the Soundtrack of Our Lives” an extraordinary look on the life and midas touch of the music industry’s most notorious record producer and friend – Clive Davis.  Mark discusses the riveting film that kicked of the 16th annual Tribeca Film Festival at Radio City Music Hall Wednesday April 19 and shares the post film debut experience of seeing a few of Clive’s artists pay tribute to him in concert: Barry Manilow, Aretha Franklin, Carly Simon, EWF, Jennifer Hudson, Dionne Warwick and Kenny G. 


And does the information about your location, social network connections, queries and more accurately depict who you are and if so – what are the implications?  Author John Cheney-Lippold, shares with Mark the findings of his new book:WE ARE DATA: Algorithms and the Making of Our Digital Selves.  No you’re not paranoid – you are being followed though your digital persona may not reflect who you really are.


Have Mark speak at your company or organization to increase moral, productivity, confidence and more.  Mark also has riveting talks for kids k-12 and college on overcoming adversity, anti-bullying/anti-teasing, mental health, drugs/alcohol, celebrating differences, self-entitlement and more.  All of Mark’s talks are from his vast life experience.  Reviews, videos, booking info and more at:

“Mark Farrell presented at our school during The Week of Respect. The students were captivated by his motivating message on perseverance, diversity, and anti-bullying. Our students remained engaged throughout his presentation as he has perfected speaking to students at their developmental level. Mark was flexible to work with and was able to engage with students on a large array of topics. My students greatly benefited from hearing the message that with hard work, diligence, and never giving up on yourself, your dreams can become your reality. I would highly recommend Mark Farrell to any school looking for a highly motivating speaker”
