Former Head of Energy, ScotiaBank shares his personal experience avoiding a devastating situation during the fall of Enron. Mark describes how he made the right decision to alert his leaders and act on his confidence Enron would fail, resulting in his Bank being spared a billion dollars in losses and in his case, a huge promotion! Even when everyone around you is being bribed, manipulated, and lied to, its necessary sometimes to take a stand.
“The most important lesson I took from this video is that in order to have a successful business, you have to have a strong leader who could not only lead the people in the right direction but know what direction to go.”
– Sosefo A.
“If a business goes south, you are much better off to just do what is right and accept the consequences than to try to be slimy and trick people.”
– Elisabeth B.
“I really liked the intro to this video with all intro music and highlights with his voice describing things and what not.”
– Grantham G.
“Mark took a stand, as a man and as an employee, to not be associated with anything unethical. It could have been very easy for him to buy in or fall into the trap of ENRON much like everybody else, but he took the road less traveled. He turned away from a lot of money and business opportunities to uphold his name and personal beliefs. I think that was huge, and in the long run it paid dividends for him.”
