MARK PICKETT – PRESENTER
The Power Behind
Vendor Representative, Presenter & Producer
Mark Pickett is a sales and marketing expert with extensive experience across multiple sales channels including live TV Shopping Channels, Direct Response and e-commerce.
In 2003 he established G Marketing International, a multi-faceted, global marketing business specialising in:
- Selective product sourcing, business development and tailored account management
- Delivering persuasive sales presentations
- Targeted TV production and training
After a career in television with ITV, BBC and Sky, Mark was part of the QVC UK launch team in 1993. He directed output on the first day of transmission and went on to become a Line Producer, responsible for managing Presenters’ airtime and guiding real-time sales for a wide range of products.
Two years later he was invited to join the launch team putting together the TVSN Channel in Australia. Mark was initially charged with hiring and training studio staff but went on to become a much-loved Presenter for many years, giving him unique first-hand studio experience on both sides of the camera.
While continuing to present, Mark established a successful international marketing business selling carefully selected beauty and jewellery products to shopping channels in Australia and overseas. He added to the range of his on-air presence as an expert guest, and this, combined with his entrepreneurial spirit, had a very positive effect on sales.
Mark Pickett has a passion for gemstones, jewellery and watches and will shortly be working with a major promotions company based in Miami, Florida to promote high-end, luxury merchandise including diamonds, coloured gemstones and Swiss watches to guests on board 5 star cruise ships.
