Mark Scharenbroich

John Stumpf, president and CEO of Wells Fargo, calls Mark Scharenbroich "an original ... the best motivational speaker I've ever heard." Chicken Soup for the Soul™ creator Mark Victor Hansen says Mark is a "wow of wows ... magical, mesmerizing, motivating ... brilliant." And Sue Steen - CEO, SERVPRO states: "Nice Bike is a life changing philosophy that is simple to apply in everyday situations. Make this book mandatory reading for your organization only if you want to build a culture of excellence at every level."

They're not the only ones. Clients constantly remark on his unconventional approach, knockout humor, and personal stories with universal appeal. All focus on the relationship side of creating results, connecting people to people, management to front line, team member to team member, company to customer.

While earning a degree in mass communications at St. Cloud State University in Minnesota, Mark wrote, directed and performed in a comedy troupe called Mom's Apple Pie. The group performed together throughout the Midwest in the '70s, and when it disbanded, Mark went solo and combined his comedy training with motivational speaking.

Soon after, Mark was employed by Jostens-the leading manufacturer of class rings, yearbooks and graduation products-to speak to their customers throughout North America. In 1981 Mark was featured in a film called "The Greatest Days of Your Life ... (So Far)," which was seen by millions of viewers worldwide. It earned him the Golden Apple and Silver Screen film awards.

Mark left Jostens to create a communications company, and became noted in education as a leading expert in the area of leadership and student engagement. He then expanded his message of employee engagement into the association and corporate market.

Mark's new book, Nice Bike - Making Meaningful Connections on the Road of Life, shares powerful stories based on the three actions steps of acknowledge, honor and connect.

Mark and his wife, Susan, founded Scharenbroich & Associates, Inc. Today, they've been married for more than 30 years and continue to partner in the company, which serves business and education clients internationally. In 2010, they established NiceBikeHonorsVeterans.org to honor the memory of Mark's father and to support veterans causes with a portion of the sales from his book, Nice Bike.

  • Nice Bike...Making Connections That Move People - Mark Scharenbroich's Nice Bike principle is about acknowledging, honoring and making connections that move people. Why is this a big deal? Because, according to the Gallup Management Q12 research, just 28% of employees are fully engaged in their organization, while a whopping 71% of the workforce is either under-performing or actively undermining their work. Through the Nice Bike principle, Mark Scharenbroich helps people bring greater passion to their work and feel a profound connection to their company. Mark's keynote presentation of the Nice Bike concept acts as a catalyst for a stronger, more unified team.

    Two powerful words - Nice Bike - supported by three powerful actions:
    • Acknowledge: To be more aware, to let others know that who they are and what they do matters, to be a great listener...a really great listener.
    • Honor: To recognize others based on what's important to them, to serve others with a sense of passion.
    • Connect: To create a meaningful contact with others - both large and small - that makes a difference in someone's life.

    Marks message will have high audience impact and be supported with tools that people will use immediately to improve their own personal and professional lives. Not only will you be hearing "Nice Bike" in the hallways of the convention, audience members will embrace the Nice Bike message to create real change in their daily lives.
