For nearly 20 years, Mark Brenner led a boutique consultancy, the Global Consulting Partnership, that focused on advancing the performance of leaders and organizations. During that time Dr. Brenner conducted consulting assignments with Fortune 1000 companies, international consulting firms, and entrepreneurial businesses. His firm used a powerful motivational and performance enhancement methodology to harness and then maximize the untapped potential of a company’s people value chain.

In 1998, Dr. Brenner spent the year building the Career Transformation System ToolBox™, a distillation of his 20 years of work in the field of Leadership Development and Organizational Transformation.
