K-Club breakfast Speaker – 21st April 2016

‘Between the Devil and the deep blue sea’

Mark Brocklehurst

MD of Sharples Group Ltd

Bolton born Mark has combined a successful career in business with service to both his country and community.

An ex-Navy man and a regular attendee of K-Club, Mark is the Managing Director of Warrington-based Sharples Group Ltd who are a well established Managed Print Specialist.

Away from work Mark’s enthusiasm for adventure and fundraising has seen him complete challenge after challenge to raise in excess of £400,000 in support of local charities and community groups.

Mark will give us a “warts n all” tale of four men in a leaky boat through his eyes, as their skipper.  Hear how four non-rowers tackled the world’s toughest rowing race across the Atlantic Ocean in the middle of winter. You will see how a gruelling “two on, two off” rowing pattern, extreme pain, mental breakdown and capsizing pushed them to their limits.
