Mark joined Club Europe in 2019, having recently returned to the UK from the UAE and is delighted to be working with International schools organising their educational trips.

Having grown up travelling the world with his parents Mark has lived in Singapore, Switzerland, England and Kenya forming a passion for travel and adventure and leading him into a career in the travel industry.

After having worked in London and Abu Dhabi, it was in East Africa and later in Dubai, where he first got involved with working with International schools, organising their school trips.

Mark says: “Being part of giving students the opportunity to travel and seeing how their outlook on the world and communities grow outside of the classroom makes this job so rewarding.

“I will never forget having been given the opportunity as a 16-year-old to go on my first school trip from Kenya to the then USSR; it really opened my eyes to a completely different world. So I know from personal experience the impact these trips can have on developing minds.”
