Had a great day! Lots of compliments about your speech; you take complex issues and make them very understandable; it went really well! 

Danny Hozack, Economic Education Association of Alberta

Mark did an excellent job and was exactly what we hoped for. The Q&A portion went on for some time, which is always a good indication of how much our people are engaged! 

Tiffany Yaxley, CWLS

I really liked how Mark identified ‘ideas’, ‘interests’ and ‘individuals’ and how they have to be in a certain balance to create likely change.

Mark did his homework! His remarks resonated with the audience and were both captivating and timely. The speech was well-received and provided the mix of humour, facts and opinion that only someone with his bona fides can deliver. The result was a memorable speech that our members thoroughly enjoyed.

Mark’s keynote to a room of forestry industry professionals wove together key economic indicators as well as some of the underlying political imperatives “behind the numbers” to tell a story which had the attention of the room. A good measure of how successful a speaker is, is to gauge the number of conversations between participants after the presentation is over. Mark’s talk did exactly that with our group!

Mark Milke delivered exactly as promised. His presentation was crisp, insightful and intellectually engaging. Drawing upon his deep experience in history, public policy and rational economic critiques, Mark demonstrated convincingly how the sound - and politically risky - fiscal policy decisions of Ralph Klein saved Alberta's finances. And within this ‘dense’ subject matter, Mark deftly seasoned his presentation with relevant anecdotes, and his unique subtle-but-cutting dry wit.

Mark Milke was an excellent choice. Thoughtful and well-spoken, he provided delegates with insight into the opportunities for business managers in the the Pacific Rim and other foreign markets.

Alex Carrick, CMD Group


Mark has a unique ability to discuss and debate the complex political and economic issues of our time. He provides a compelling historical perspective, emphasizing the importance of sound public policy and the impact it has on our daily lives.

President and CEO



Our members found Mark’s keynote presentation to be thought-provoking, informative and engaging. His comments were very timely, especially for the concrete industry as we look for positive economic news. Mark’s economic and political insights on where Alberta has been and where the province is going are invaluable. He is a must-hear speaker for any industry wanting to get a better perspective on Alberta’s economy and how government policies matter more than luck.”

Dan Hanson, Executive Director Concrete Alberta

You blew them away! Great job!

Scott McFayden, Canadian Propane Association
