Speaking & Presentations

Kris Marks: A Voice of Passion, Inspiration, and Empowerment.

It has been my privilege to serve as keynote speaker, presenter, and/or performer at countless community, corporate, and school events. I would be honoured to share with you my passion and knowledge, and help to create meaningful connections through the inspiring power of storytelling, lived experiences, education, and empowerment.

“When someone gives us the gift of their time and presence, we must not only honour the message we are delivering, but honour those who are receiving it as well.” – Kris Marks

“A dynamic, engaging, and polished speaker on topics such as mental health, suicide loss, men’s mental health, and lived experience (houselessness, suicide survivor, and mental illness). Kris Marks employs a powerful blend of unabashed authenticity and inspiration to deliver meaningful, thought-provoking presentations.” – Speaker Review


“Kris is a compassionate and resourceful man, and his sessions and conversations are always so thoughtful and relevant. His superpower seems to be that he can draw out the best in people, helping others feel comfortable with their own vulnerability and creating a safe space for folks to exist freely without judgement.”

“I’ve been listening to your podcast and I love it. It’s so good! Thank you so much for being so vulnerable and sharing your story. It makes it so much easier for people to open up and help remove the stigma behind mental health struggles. Thank you so much!”



“Kris is a true professional. From the start of his presentation to the end, he had the full attention of my students. A talented speaker with a wealth of knowledge on the subject. I highly recommend!”

“I just wanted to reach out and thank you for speaking to our class today, it really resonated with me. As someone who’s struggled with mental health for a long time, hearing you talk about you personal struggles felt so relatable and less lonely. I appreciate your candour.”
