Insight with Mark Farrell An engaging forum to examine and discuss a vast array of everyday obstacles and challenges facing adults and children today.

Another professional athlete is charged with domestic violence – something that is become all too common for victims and leagues.  Are sports that require a certain degree of violence for professional athletes more dangerous for the health and well being of their spouses?  In October - most schools celebrate diversity, inclusion and the importance of acceptance regardless of how a student identifies as well as the dangers of drug and alcohol use.  During this vital month I share my vast experience with students at schools everywhere on overcoming adversity – my struggles of living with a visual impairment, coping with mental illness, my awakening of years of drug/alcohol use and so much more.  I’m beyond gratified when I meet students months or years after they heard one of my talks and they recite my mantra, “My Difference Makes Me Stronger” and how my talk had such a positive impact on them.  I wish schools didn’t let the calendar dictate or limit how much impact significant messaging can have on students.      


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”
