Mark Leruste-

Finding your path isn’t always a straight line. It usually takes hits and misses and trying many things out. This is how it was for Mark Leruste, whose journey towards his dream career started when his video CV, ‘A dream job would be nice’, went viral on YouTube and helped him land a position as Country Manager at the Movember Foundation.

There, Mark raised €2.8 million for men’s health and inspired 110,000 fundraisers to sign up at Movember.com, winning multiple awards along the way.

Four years into the job, it became clear that Mark couldn’t ignore his entrepreneurial itch anymore, which had been around since he was 12 years old. So, against conventional wisdom, he decided to turn his passion into his full-time job and took the plunge to found The Unconventionalists, a weekly podcast, web TV show and coaching business, teaching coaches, founders and small business owners how to turn their message into a movement.

From making Nelson Mandela’s right hand man cry to asking Tim Ferris about his fear of failure, Mark is an expert at using his warm manner to tease out the truth and create moments of total honesty.

To date, Mark has worked with hundreds of unfulfilled professionals and frustrated small business owners and has interviewed more than 200 world-class leaders, entrepreneurs, athletes, politicians, CEOs, authors and adventurers from around the world, providing his audience with a ring side seat in understanding how ordinary people can achieve extraordinary things.

He is a Certified Professional Co-Active® Coach (CPCC) & Professional Certified Coach (PCC), a member of the International Coach Federation (ICF), a VirginStartup Mentor, a Coaches Training Institute (CT) Front of the Room Leader and is also a Co-Active Leadership Graduate, through CTI, San Rafael, CA, USA.

His work has appeared in many publications including the Guardian, the Wall Street Journal, Metro, Shortlist, 20Minutes, GrowthLab, Canal+, the Sunday Telegraph and he is the author of It’s Not You, It’s Me, a book about finding fulfilling work.
