Mark Rogers is an executive director of Collaborate CIC an associate of KPMG and the Vinyl Protection Society. He has been a teacher and a local government officer and now he's a Collaborator. He likes people and is excited by the latent potential they have to work together and do good. He believes that aligned values and shared purpose will drive social change for the benefit of individuals, communities, organisations and partnerships. After empathy Mark most respects (and tries to self-engender) courage. "Do the right thing right - but do it". He learned everything he knows from someone else. In return he can say he has provided some people with an alternative musical education. He is an agathist in spite of all evidence the contrary.
