Because people matter

Helping people bring their best selves to work. Co-author of the book 'The ten Golden Rules of Leadership'.


Martin is passionate about developing leaders and organisations to effectively motivate, develop, and inspire individuals and teams, helping people bring their best selves to work.

As a key note speaker with over 25 years of leading and managing teams in both large financial services organisations and SME businesses. In 2017 Martin co-authored the book “The ten Golden Rules of Leadership”. In ‘The Bookbag’s’ top ten self-published titles in 2017 the book has been described as an essential guide for people managers and leaders at all levels. One 5* Amazon review simply called it “the best leadership book you will ever read!”





As a speaker, facilitator and leadership consultant, Martin has worked with a range of global organisations including clients in media, financial services, retail, FMCG’s, pharma, transport and education. He has a relaxed and engaging speaking style and as a skilled storyteller uses his personal experience, both when he got it right, but also when he got it wrong to help the people avoid falling into some of the same traps as he did. Whether as keynote speaker for large corporate events or facilitating smaller team sessions Martin is well known for his inspiring, engaging and completely relatable style and approach.


Martin gave up his free time to conduct a questions and answers session with some first time leaders on our award winning fellowship programme. The session looked at how to be an authentic leader today with the 10 golden rules in mind. Martin delivered with passion and energy which then inspired the group.

Martin was a great addition to our roster of external speakers at our most recent global event. He gets to the heart of what leadership can and should be in a style that is engaging, humorous and most importantly, rooted in experience. There is no one-size fits all to outstanding management and Martin manages to traverse the breadth of what leadership entails whilst identifying practical advice to be practised from Monday.

We’ve worked with Martin for a number of years, and he consistently inspires people by sharing everyday examples that audiences can relate to along with practical tools and tips they can use to improve the way do things the very next day. If you want your people to have an ‘aha’ moment and be able to put into action, then Martin is the speaker for you! Can’t recommend enough – 5 stars!
