Mark Burnett


Your Consulting & Training Provider

With 70% of projects failing and 50% struggling to meet deadlines, it's clear there's a need for change.

The Reasoner, nicknamed Reasoning with Mark 🇯🇲 with a passion for empowering teams to unlock their full potential. As a son of the Caribbean, I've persevered one of the most complex challenges of life, defying a tough recommendation for arm amputation. This journey has reinforced my belief that "Everything is a Project" leveraging empathy, resilience, adaptability, and teamwork as impactful skills to deliver any project.

With a background supporting large-scale infrastructure projects for companies like Ericsson, I bring a customer-centric focus to every endeavor. From ICT rollouts to utility-scale solar and energy construction, I've implemented over 4204+ base stations, accelerated mobile usage, and negotiated with partners across 19+ countries in Caribbean and Latin America.

I'm not just a Consultant; I'm a Thought Leader, Agile Training Provider, and Electronics Engineer. As a Philanthropist and Sports Fanatic, I've contributed to meaningful Covid solutions, guiding teams in Men’s World Cup Qualifiers, and sharing knowledge at regional universities.
