Mark PilgrimLocation: Based in Johannesburg
Mark Pilgrim is one of South Africa's most recognisable radio and television personalities, and an in-demand MC, speaker, club DJ, and corporate deejay.
Mark has been a professional MC for over 19 years. His warm and friendly delivery style has endeared him to thousands of delegates. Whether for a 2 day conference or a gala awards evening, with his wry sense of humour, Mark is there to make sure the event goes according to plan. He can also provide a value-added service by both being your MC and deejay for the evening.
A polished motivational speaker, Mark has chatted to thousands of delegates over the past few years. His 40 minute talk entitled Beyond the Baldness is well suited to conferences and functions which are themed around reaching your goals, whether it be at work or in your personal life.
Mark has been entertaining millions of listeners on radio for nearly two decades. He started his career on 5fm, and now broadcasts simultaneously on 94.7 Highveld Stereo in Johannesburg and 94.5 Kfm all across the Cape. He is as comfortable in front of the camera as he is behind the microphone, with a string of TV shows to his credit, including Big Brother South Africa, Big Brother Africa, Retail Therapy and Sex Etc on MNET; New Moves on e-TV; as well as Face2face on SABC2. His most recent show was South's Africa's biggest ever game show, the Power of 10 on MNET.
Mark is a cancer survivor, having been diagnosed at the age of 18 with stage 4 testicular cancer, which spread to his lungs and kidneys. In 2008, at the age of 38, he survived a severe and sudden heart attack which was caused by a genetic condition. Despite narrowly cheating death twice, his positive and genuinely happy attitude towards life is infectious and motivates others to achieve their own personal goals in life.
As a polished motivational speaker, Mark's inspirational story is anecdotal and humorous, revealing how cancer persuaded him to give up his training as a chartered accountant and follow his dream of being on radio.
Mark has MC'd countless corporate events for companies such as Old Mutual SA, Osiris, Pam Golding, Pfizer, Prominent Paints, REMAX, Renault SA, SA Breweries (Egoli Division), SA Reward Association, Sasol Polymers, SatCom Africa, Shoden Data Systems, Shop SA, Silverstar Casino, Simeka Business Group, Sony Corporation (Japan), Spar, Standard Bank, Sun International, Tiger Brands SA, Toyota, TWP (Basil Read), Ultimate Speakers Bureau, USN, Virgin Active SA, VISA, Vodacom, Via Afrika and Wyeth Pharmaceuticals.
