Guest Intro

This week’s guest went into liquidation at 30.

He then went on to build and eventually sell one of the biggest commercial fit-out companies this country has ever seen.

He’s an entrepreneur, a philanthropist, a technophobe and a connector, and a self-proclaimed dumb tradie.

But without a doubt, he is one of the smartest to ever strap on a nail bag.

He doesn’t mind a flutter, and he is tanned all year around. And without a doubt, his greatest passion is his kids.

It’s the man, the myth, the legend. It’s Mark Walkley, ladies and gentlemen!!!
