“I had the privilege of having Mark Rockley as my Player Manager throughout my Professional Rugby League career with the Brisbane Broncos. As a young player in the NRL, I was looking for a Mentor, someone to help guide me & develop me as a person off the field, as well as assist me to achieve my goals on the field. I was fortunate to have Mark fill that position for me & he became a wonderful Role Model for me to look up to. He provided me with constant support both on & off the field at all times. He was instrumental in helping me to persevere & go on & play State of Origin & represent Australia.

More importantly, he helped me to become a better person. I always found him to be a true professional in all that he did, a real person of quality. The greatest compliment that I can give Mark, is that he is a person of integrity. He is genuine, caring & pursues excellence in all that he does – qualities that I admire & want to emulate.

I highly recommend him to athletes in all sports, as he is the most ideal Player Manager that one could ever have.”

“My direct experience working with Mark Rockley was from 2001-2003 whilst employed at Simplot Australia as Trade Marketing Manager responsible for the management of the Route Category worth $40M PA. Mark was instrumental in successfully growing the QLD business through adverse change in distribution models to introducing new product lines, brand extensions whilst managing ongoing ‘turn-key’ promotions.  

Mark’s strength in networking has enabled his understanding of marketing principles to effectively leverage, develop and manage sponsorship alliances with high profile organisations such as The Brisbane Broncos, Cowboys, Lions, Reds, and Bullets.  Growing brand awareness of Four’n Twenty in the QLD market from 60-95% over a 3 year period is testament to Mark’s ability to implement marketing activity and develop long lasting profitable relationships.  Mark’s contribution in the implementation of a National School Loyalty program increased the company’s market share nationally of the education sector by 30%. 

Having maintained communication over the years, Mark has utilised his strategic skills to develop and implement marketing solutions to grow and increase revenue, profitability whilst growing brand awareness and loyalty in the sporting sector.”

“I worked with Mark and RockSolid Sports in a consultancy role with a group of corporate clients who undertook a Corporate Fitness Program called the Ten10 Challenge leading into the Gold Coast Marathon (10K event).  This process was rewarding and enjoyable for all involved and was highly successful in demonstrating to corporate organizations that workplace health and fitness initiatives are the way of the future, and immensely successful in creating and maintaining workplace morale.

Mark and my company – Working Health also aligned to produce a workplace health and fitness promotion requested by BMA (BHP Mitsubishi Alliance).  Our objective was to put together a program to assess and improve the fitness of BMA employees across 11 Queensland sites.   Their target concerns were the high rates of obesity, heart disease, sleep apnoea, diabetes and chronic musculoskeletal conditions. 

We produced an extensive proposal which networked podiatrists, physiotherapists, dieticians, psychologists, exercise physiologists, personal trainers and doctors along with facilities and BMA employees in remote Queensland locations.  Marks capacity to statistically analyse and graphically present the data was imperative to the success of our proposal.

Our BMA workplace health promotion program will continue to evolve and relies heavily on Mark’s organization and problem solving skills.  I see that with his continued enthusiasm and commitment, that this program will not only revolutionize the workplace fitness of BMA,  but of many other forward thinking companies.”
