About The Speaker

Mark, one of the directors, talking to the other directors discussing topics in a YADA Collective meeting

Mark Innis

Despite growing up and attending university in London, Mark never really understood the appeal of the breadth of clubs and bars on his doorstep. Whilst the social aspect was appealing, the alcohol and drug-fuelled pressures and activities that are associated with the typical nightlife scene definitely weren’t. Wanting to combine his Christian faith and the desire to serve the local community with his wish to revolutionise the night-time economy, he teamed up with Craig and Rhondell to create YADA. Having trained as a chartered accountant, Mark has worked with a wide range of companies from tiny owner-managed businesses to large, multi-million-pound, international organisations. He now looks after everything financial at YADA. With a (rather unhealthy!) obsession with both motorsport and music, when not at YADA Mark can usually be found either with a guitar in hand, watching some cars drive quickly, or both.
