Mark Gilbertson's perspective in strategy and organizational development fused with brand and marketing communication thinking fuels a holistic approach to consulting at Intersection Studio. Mark's role is to provoke and guide discovery, to kindle the spirit of adventure that lies at the heart of all great businesses. He connects the thinking with the doing and patiently works on the "whole" problem using powerful conversation as his catalyst. No fads, no fast fixes, no substitute brains, just a straightforward and unrelenting focus on helping organizations and individuals create their desired future.
His long-term association with Strategos, the consulting firm surrounding best selling author and strategy guru Gary Hamel (Competing for the Future, Leading the Revolution), has provided Mark with the perspective and credentials to catalyze innovative strategies that reinvent companies, organizations, and industries.
Prior to his association with Strategos, he was a management consultant with the MAC Group in their San Francisco and London offices. His varied experiences as a mentor, manager, and director have given him a unique perspective on the challenges of creating meaningful workplaces, and facilitating groups through complex problem solving and initiative building.
Over the past 20-plus years he has been involved with a wide array of businesses: helping global mega-brands such as Shell and BMW to reinvent their businesses; working with fledgling companies to challenge incumbents in industries ranging from media to prestige retailing; assisting established companies to develop new business concepts; launching start-ups while participating on the Advisory Boards of venture capital funds; building nonprofit organizations such as the Los Angeles Entrepreneur Series that trained over 1,000 business owners in strategic planning; and for seven years, a member of the management team and board of directors that took a startup to industry leader in the Building Systems Services arena.
Mark holds an MBA from the Andersen School of Management at U.C.L.A and a B.Sc. in Monetary Economics from the City University Business School in London.
