As the CEO of Chat With Leaders Media and Executive Partner at People-First Elevation Team, I lead a dedicated team specializing in thought leadership development, stakeholder engagement, and effective global communication. We excel in producing corporate podcasts, meetings, and events to drive customer and team member acquisition, retention, and engagement. Additionally, we provide speaker coaching to empower thought leaders within our clients' organizations.

My approach is grounded in Conscious Capitalism, fostering leaders with a values-driven, pro-capitalism perspective. I firmly believe in business's transformative power, not only as a commercial venture but as a catalyst for lasting social and generational impact.

Beyond my professional role, I cherish my most significant leadership role as a father to three children, alongside my wife Katie. This personal aspect deeply influences my professional path, aligning my business strategies with family values, faith, and community service in Atlanta, GA.

Chat Guest

Mark McKenzie is one of Three Brothers that owns and operates Docqmax Digital Printing, Atlanta’s Business Printer since 1975. Mark is passionate about his role as a partner along with his responsibilities of being the face of Docqmax, networking, business development, and marketing for his company. Mark’s unique ability and a knack for helping others connect with business opportunities and his giver’s gain attitude has not only benefited his company but his clients and prospects over the years as well.

In 2003, the brothers decided to purchase a commercial building in West Midtown and consolidate their three locations to better serve their clients with automation and technology. In doing so this has also led them into real estate investment opportunities. Mark is a founding member of the West Midtown Business Alliance and has served as an Advisory Board member with the Alliance. Also, he currently serves on the Membership Committee and Co-Chairs the Golf Committee at the Buckhead Club.

One of the things that Mark is most passionate about is his participation as the Co-Chair of “Golf for the Kids” annual charity golf tournament now in our 14th year. This event benefits the cancer center at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. What is most important about this tournament is that a major portion of the funds raised is earmarked for the purchasing of a therapy dog to be entered into the Canines for Kid’s program at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.

Mark is married to Lynn Wilson and together they have two wonderful children, two grandchildren, three dogs, and three grand dogs.
