"Martin has made us take time out of our busy schedules; to get feedback from staff at all levels, with better communication, a shared understanding of what to improve, and clear view of the route forward... He's asked us the difficult questions we've needed to ask ourselves, and persisted till we've come up with good answers."
"Martin's coaching service is brilliant... My sessions have already led to the creation of a stronger and clearer strategic plan, the development of a fantastic P&L scenario tool for making business decisions, the recruitment of two full time members of staff and contributed to an increase in turnover of 20% last year."
"He is brilliant at helping you to analyse and break things down to make decisions. By booking sessions with him it forces us to take time out to work on the business. We have had exceptional growth with turnover increasing 5-fold in a 3 year cycle."
"What's really nice is getting off-site for a couple of hours, totally focused, with someone who wants to help and is inspiring us to drive our business forward... Our coaching with Martin has given us a real focus and confidence that we have made decisions that are the right ones. Martin is very logical, professional and enjoyable to work with. We have increased our turnover by 20% in 18 months."

"Martin's program began to deliver visible improvements in a key employee's productivity in only a few sessions. A most impressive result in a short period of time."

We have doubled our sales in recent years, opened new branches and reduced staff turnover... We are very confident in his services and recommend Martin to everyone (except our competition!)."
"I have had a great experience with Martin in both individual and group sessions with senior colleagues. His questioning and facilitation ensures that you gain clarity in your strategy, have focused objectives and see a clear path forward. You definitely feel confident in your decision-making and make faster decisions. This is of great benefit to the business and your customers. As a result of my coaching we have increased our commercial food sales income by 5% and staff productivity has improved too. I highly recommend Martin - he's easy to work with and has a great sense of humour."
"As well as increasing our business clarity ... it's now a priority to appreciate, encourage and grow our team of A-players."
