A lifelong volunteer and entrepreneur, Mark Harrison is an experienced marketer and big believer in purpose – be that brand purpose or people being purposeful in everything they do. Twenty-seven years ago, these beliefs led Mark to launch the award-winning marketing agency, The T1 Agency, and a global community of sponsorship practitioners, the SponsorshipX.
More recently, Mark founded The MH3 Collective, a group of ventures that span from advertising and sponsorship marketing to integrated communications and education. Each MH3 company shares a collective consciousness that focuses on empowering people, promoting social equity, and reimagining a world where entrepreneurial passion and purpose come to life.
As part of Mark’s commitment to DEI in society, he founded the Black Talent Initiative to facilitate change, access, and connections to aspiring Black talent in the business. Through partnerships, internships, mentorships, and networking, BTI empowers Black leaders for the future. In 2020, Mark also co-founded Park Street Education, a non-profit school that offers experience-based, hybrid learning and works to provide accessibility and remove all barriers to children’s education. Additionally, Mark is also a member of the Board of Directors at Big Brothers Big Sisters Toronto and a Fundraising Campaign Cabinet Member at CAMH Foundation – two organizations near and dear to his heart.
