Mark Pollock is opening the Dublin Global Gathering event in September and we wanted to share his story and journey with you in advance.


Through the Mark Pollock Trust ( he is on a mission to find and connect people around the world to fast-track a cure for paralysis. Described in the Daily Telegraph as "a story of courage, determination and hope" Mark has used his hard-earned expertise to help people achieve more than they thought possible in over 250 organisation worldwide as well as Davos, Wired and TEDx.

Acknowledged as an expert in smashing expectations, Red Bull UK’s Managing Director describes him as “awe-inspiring”.

Mark could have ended up down a very different life path which he explains in his message to Dublin attendees here!


At HealthXL our mission is to drive collaboration to solve healthcare's biggest problems. We asked Mark to highlight why collaboration is needed to accelerate his objective - “We believe that the cure for spinal cord injury simply requires enough of the right people with the will to make it happen. At the Mark Pollock Trust it is our mission to find and connect those people worldwide to fast-track a cure for paralysis. So, we’re creating collaborations to explore, scale and commercialise the research.”
