Mark Durgee has been working in the field of training and performance for over 10 years. After graduating with a BA in Sociology from Clark University, he began his career in healthcare and disability consulting in the Washington, DC area. A move to Chicago brought opportunities in the hospitality and proprietary higher education industries.
After several years as a sales director with over 60 direct reports, he decided to build on his performance-based training and coaching skills by completing his MA in Human Performance Improvement at Roosevelt University- one of the first graduate programs in the country mapped to the ATD Competency Model.
He has since completed successful training and performance engagements with clients worldwide, authored articles for industry publications, and presented at professional development events including the ATD International Conference and Expo.
Mark has led over a thousand hours of virtual instructor-led training (VILT) in platforms like Moodle, Adobe Connect and WebEx- just to name a few. His passion lies in leveraging technology that enables individuals to excel in their roles and contribute to their organization's achievements. Mark currently lives in Mexico City, Mexico and enjoys working with professionals from all corners of the globe.
