Mark Ward

Mark is a partner of The Professional Training Partnership and a Director of PTP Limited.

Mark qualified with Arthur Andersen in 1989, having previously worked in the tax departments of a small and a medium size firm.  He has been lecturing on a wide variety of tax matters for some 25 years to qualified practitioners and industry specialists in the UK and overseas. His ability to quickly establish a rapport with his audience, and discuss complex matters in a practical, and understandable style has led to Mark becoming much in demand on the lecturing circuit.    At PTP He has the unenviable task of preparing the slideshow for the monthly Professional Tax Update, and likes to add the odd mischievous graphic to lighten the content.   Away from tax, Mark spends Sunday mornings coaching and refereeing youth rugby union, and is sometimes spoiling a perfectly good walk with a vain search for a well-hidden geocache.
