Mark Anthony Lord (yes, that’s his real name) calls himself a guy-who-courageously-lives-out-on-the-limb-and-pasionately-leads-others-to-their-power-and-greatness.But that’s way too long to say (and write) – so Inspirational Thought Leader will do!


He's also an author, speaker, trainer, entrepreneur, coach/counselor, blogger, minister, in recovery, super creative, and … your best investment.

Since 2000 Mark Anthony Lord has been inspiring leaders, groups, and audiences to become empowered to take the often scary, but always worth it, leaps into greater success, personal responsibility, and happiness. He does this with wit, wisdom, effortless style and candor.

Raised in a blue-collar suburb of Detroit, his role models were good-hearted people who were happy to maintain the status quo. They didn’t know how to follow their dreams or move beyond mediocrity. These people were also his most wonderful teachers because they gave him the perfect beginning – the springboard that made him insatiable to find his way to freedom, personal power, passion, and a life of meaning and purpose. Helping people find that same place within them is his greatest joy.

As an expert speaker, Mark Anthony fearlessly unpacks the trials and tribulations he surmounted along his road to freedom, while weaving in practical tools for transformation that everyone can use for their own personal and professional development.

After receiving his Masters in Divinity in 2003, Mark Anthony founded the Bodhi Spiritual Center in Chicago. For 11 years he was the CEO & Spiritual Director growing it from ten people in his living room to thousands. Prior to this he spent seventeen years working as a Director and Choreographer traveling all over the world including a 3-year stint at Disney. His genius talent throughout all his work has been his ability to motivate and inspire people to become greater than they ever thought possible. From dancers on a stage in Sydney to courageous entrepreneurs working out of their homes or corporate managers struggling to lead their teams to success – Mark Anthony sees through their blocks and fears and elevates them into the place where new possibilities prevail.
