"Create the Great in You' is an excellent and exciting youth development programme created and developed by Mark McCormack and his team. The programme encourages young people to share their feelings in a safe, caring and supportive environment. Not only does it help them to develop the communication skills and vocabulary to express themselves but it also focuses on the importance of developing empathy by listening attentively to others. Above all, it helps young people to build self-confidence and improve their self-esteem. I believe that good self-confidence is an essential element to open doors of opportunity for young people. 'Create the Great in You' is a wonderful innovative programme, and I highly recommend it to schools, colleges and youth clubs."

Mark McCormack fulfills a very important role in today’s society where there are many challenges to families where both parities are at work or indeed single parent families where the parent is in employment. These challenges arise from the time demands on families from many competing sources and this presents enormous stress on relationships within these families. These issues need to be addressed in an environment, and to endeavor to normalize and develop good relationships. These have become the priority for many Human Resources functions. Mark has been to the forefront in developing concepts to lead in this field in the corporate sector. His unique style and approach has seen him become highly regarded as having a significant influence in this field. Having seen Mark ‘s work and influence in this area, I can fully endorse his approach and I believe he can contribute significantly to improving and developing family relationships.

Create the Great in You is a concept brought to life by Mark Mc Cormack who has had the courage and the conviction over many years to make real his vision to enhance the lives of those who were lucky enough to experience his programmes. Young and not so young people are captivated by both the message and the delivery of simple but effective life changing reflections. Mark’s vision and drive is shared by those who work with him. I look forward to witnessing the ongoing development of Create the Great in You. I would urge anyone working with groups of young people; whether it be in an education / school or club setting to take time to consider what this great company has to offer. Those who did came back for more. I wish Mark and his team every success.
