Mark Clulow - Open to New Opportunities

Birthplace: England, United Kingdom of Great Britain Current Location: Shenzhen, Guangdong, China (Feb. 2016)

I take a long-term view of my life, yet always value the power of every moment as they occur. I vow to protect life - both mine and that of all other creatures with whom I share this universe. I am loyal, trustworthy, understanding and forgiving of others' shortcomings. I am disciplined to live the life I have chosen for myself - responsible for my successes and accountable for my failures.

Read My Mission Statement


What Am I Looking For?

Location: I am currently seeking new work opportunities. Being globally mobile right now, there is no location preference. I have long work experience in both China and the U.K.

  • China: Shenzhen or Hong Kong. I have seen enough of China in the last 8 years to know that these are the 2 places to be.
  • U.K.: London. I will always consider a post closer to my family and friends in my home town, for the right organisation. I fall in love with the city more and more every time I visit.

Company: It is important that I work with people who are dedicated to improving the World we live in. They must be dedicated to the on-going mentorship, coaching and training of their staff, the reduction of waste and never-ending performance improvement.

Industry: My skills in project management, marketing, communications and business development are applicable to any industry. For me, it is important that it is an industry making an overall positive impact on the world and not a destructive one.
