It’s been said that every great achiever is inspired by a great mentor.

Mark Hurst, Executive Vice President of Marketing at Tempus Global Data and a Partner & Founder of Connect Partners has been one such mentor. He is one of BoomStartup’s longest tenured mentors and has helped countless entrepreneurs nail their messaging and branding.

“Mark offered our company very valuable insights about how to think about branding and how to communicate our messaging effectively to clients in both B2B & B2C,” Jeff Katzman, Core Learning Exchange CEO said.

Hurst has over 30 years of experience in Brand Strategy and is responsible for the comprehensive re-brand of Utah under the Life Elevated umbrella.

“10 years ago I made a commitment to give 10% of all my time to mentoring and I’ve tried to do that,” Hurst said. “It’s the most important thing I do. And the most fulfilling. I see the minds of entrepreneurs as sponges just waiting to soak up information. We continue to see brilliant thinkers with brilliant ideas and I love helping to shape their voice and their                                                                                     approach to the marketplace. It’s a great time to be part of the dynamic Utah economy.”

Hurst will be leading a workshop session on Branding on Thursday, December 15th from 6-8 p.m. at Impact Hub Salt Lake.
