Mark Ledwards

Mark is a communications and leadership coach with 25 years’ sales and management experience in financial institutions and technology companies.  He seeks to empower executives by helping them to develop outstanding and natural communication and leadership skills, whether presenting to large audiences, clients, the media, internal stakeholders or investors.  

Mark’s skills as a coach are based on a military career in the British Army. This culminated in his selection to the Royal Armoured Corps’ Instructor Cadre, where he taught and evaluated soldiers, officers and command staff in Armoured Warfare.  

Having left the Army, Mark joined Bear Stearns and pursued a career in financial markets, culminating in a senior role on the Middle East sales desk for Nomura.  He then moved into FinTech, selling new technology to investment banks, asset managers and global exchanges. During this time Mark led, negotiated and closed a joint venture partnership with a major European exchange to establish a pan-European trading platform.  Mark has sat on various boards to advise on company strategy and report as a business head to VC investors and strategic global investors. 

Most recently, Mark was invited to become a mentor at Level 39, the Fintech community in London, where he has coached and advised the founders of early-stage companies in their strategic sales plans and presentations.  

Mark has mentored salespeople throughout his career and enjoys the challenge of communicating ideas effectively across a range of businesses and clients.
