Over the past twenty years Mark Mathis has been featured as a keynote speaker for dozens of groups, businesses, and organizations from the National Football League to the Independent Petroleum Association of America to the American Anthropological Association.

However, he still speaks on media trends and conducts Media Training sessions based on his book Feeding the Media Beast (published in the U.S., India, China, Russia and Korea).
