Mark Black Biography

Born with a life-threatening heart defect, Mark Black underwent two open-heart surgeries before age one. Twenty-two years later, after waiting on the transplant list for nearly a year, Black was blessed to survive a perilous heart and double-lung transplant,

Three years later, Black became the only man in history to run a marathon with someone else’s heart and lungs. Then he did it 3 more times. Black doesn't just teach resilience; he embodies it.

The author of "The Resilience Roadmap" and “Live Life from the Heart,” Black has travelled the globe as an author, speaker, and coach, sharing strategies and tactics for building resilience. His story has impacted more than 150,000 people at more than 750 organizations including ExxonMobil, AstraZeneca, and Mercedes-Benz.

Black is married to his superhero wife, Marise. They live on the east coast of Canada with their 3 healthy children, Emma, Mateo, and Caleb.

Speaking Topics
  • Break Through Your Limits: Level Up Your Life

    Too often, we patronize teens with meaningless motivational messages. “You can do ANYTHING” is a phrase most teens have heard in some form or another; they immediately tune out because they know… it’s not true! That is unfortunate because what IS true is that they can do a lot more than they think.

  • Break Through Your Comfort Zone: Do Tough Stuff

    We often tell students to do “the right thing, and so they should, but Mark has discovered the path to achieving anything of meaning is also to “do the hard thing.”

    We live in a world where convenience and ease are valued more than determination and grit. When students believe that better means easier, they risk missing out on some of the best parts of life.

  • Break Through for Healthcare: Through Your Patients' Eyes

    You care about your patients. You want to give them the best care possible. You can’t be expected to do that unless you know what really matters to them.

    In this engaging presentation, Mark will share the incredible impact made on him by the medical professionals with who he “lived with” and cared for him as he faced the prospect of death. You will be inspired and affirmed in the value of your work.

  • Break Through Your Limitations: Live Today

    Your organization has a vision for where you are headed, but the future has many unknowns, and the stakes are high. To realize your goals, you need to have everyone on board, but how do you get everyone from the front line to the head office to truly believe it can happen?
