Episode 68: Mark Hadland (Level 11), Seattle, Washington, USA

For YPO member Mark Hadland, life is about experiences.

Mark has a wealth of experience in the engineering, high tech and consulting fields. After earning a degree in electrical engineering from the University of Washington, he worked for prestigious institutions including the Department of Defense, Microsoft, Accenture and Cisco.

In 2009, Mark leveraged his experience and started Level 11, a technology company that designs experiential interactions between brands and consumers. Today, Level 11 delights the public with its designs for the Disney MagicBand that electronically improves the visitor experience at Disney Theme Parks and has recently designed a similar system for Carnival Cruise Lines.

In this episode, Mark paints a picture of the future when technology will transform our lives even further by anticipating our needs and proactively help us plan our day without prompting.
