Meet the Founder!
Mark Laitflang Stone is a pioneering Social Entrepreneur whose coaching framework for personal growth and well-being has impacted over 100,000 lives in India’s North-Eastern region. His inspiring journey began in his home in the clouds, Shillong, a hill station nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas, now home to his flourishing coaching organisation, Avenues. From dropping out of high school and selling flowers at 16 to coaching audiences in India, Europe and South East Asia through human experiences that he calls “Pockets of Happiness”, Mark’s own story of courage and resilience is deeply moving.
Over the course of the last sixteen years, he has emerged as his region’s leading authority in life coaching interventions for youth and leadership development for executives and entrepreneurs. His unique philosophy unlocks Confidence, Clarity and Purpose for everyone and takes forward his personal mission to help people own their stories and embrace their impact in an uncertain world.
Avenues’ flagship programmes are working towards augmenting formal education structures with life coaching efforts, significantly improving the quality of life and careers for tribal youth. When he isn’t running his teams, Mark can be found at one of his many speaking engagements inspiring audiences to rediscover their values and deliver their “message to the world” to an unsuspecting camera.
