The following are just some of the many feedback comments I receive....
It was deeply insightful and provided invaluable help to the way our company is run and how we are going to proceed actioning projects.
It was key for me to have identified my personal and collective strengths. Through the various team exercises, I think we all learnt how the outcomes reflect our actual working experience and what we need to do in order to maximise all our skills and efforts to ensure a smooth running and profitable company."

"I have been very fortunate to worked with Martin within my role at SMP Group. Martin passionately sets and drives clear strategy and vision while being adaptable to my needs. Martin really understands the needs of his clients and how to support them and get the best out of them.
It is these qualities that make Martin an excellent Coach. I often use parts of Martin's coaching in both personal and business situations that have made a big impact for me!
Nick Stagg, Marketing Director, SMP Group
Martins training technique and his personality are an inspiration to me. He gets his message across very efficiently and tailors his approach to each individual. Over the 2 days, Martin’s Presentation Skills training carefully developed and nurtured an atmosphere where the whole team were confident presenting to an audience, providing us with tips and tricks to maximize the delivery of our presentations, building up confidence and always sharing his expertise. The training notes which accompany the day are detailed and interesting and great to refer back to. I would highly recommend Martin for his depth of knowledge and development skills but more importantly for his fun and engaging style of training."
Patrick King, Associate / BIM Manager, ECD Architects Ltd

“Thank you for all your help, support and guidance, I have learned so much. Your coaching technique is excellent and has really helped me to develop my skills."
Wendy Emery, Learning & Development Director
"I would like to thoroughly recommend Martin for the business coaching that he has conducted for me at Neos Creative Ltd. He has taken the three owners, worked with them to create a direction, maintained momentum and has fundamentally changed the company in a massively positive way. Actually, I cannot thank Martin enough as he has never told us what to do, only helped us articulate and action what we already know and the results have been off the scale!"
I Chinnock, Managing Director, NeosCreative
"Martin was hired by my company to coach me in management development and strengthen my role as Head of Post-Production.
Thanks to Martin's unique approach to training and his pertinent questions during our sessions together, I have learnt so much about myself (self-awareness) and gained new excellent practical steps to becoming the most efficient manager I can be. Thank you Martin and 80/20 Challenge Ltd for everything. "
S Graham, Head of Post Production & Lead Editor, Salt TV
"Running a small successful business was easy. Taking it to the next level, managing staff and maintaining focus is where Martin stepped in. Martin has taught me key insights that have enabled me to understand how to manage difficult situations, support staff and ensure a constant high morale in the office. Without his guidance I would be struggling to cope with what I now see as simple situations. Martins guidance is building on what you already know, it just you don't realise you know it.."
S Wicks, Owner/Managing Director, Tecna UK - T3 Systems
"Thank you for today's session. I thought I knew what I wanted, but in our short time together, I learnt so much. My priorities are so clear, and they would not have been, had it not been for your thought provoking insights.... And you made it so conversational and painless.
Thank you so much, and I look forward to working with you for a long time."
"I used Martin as a Business Management Coach and did the 80/20 Challenge. He was a bit of a mentor to me, in helping me develop my business, improve upon my management skills and as a sounding board for my thoughts about furthering the business. I found his help and advice extremely useful both during this process, and as my business has continued to grow since then, I believe that his input and feed back has played a huge roll in helping me realise this."
I Burgess, Founder / Managing Director, SeTwo Ltd
"Martin’s coaching has proven invaluable in helping us take a step back from the day to day, address issues and any blind-spots and have more clarity on our goals.
Coaching is allowing us to move forward more quickly and strategically, be more accountable and measure the results we are achieving.
Martin's approach is very flexible and focused on us; he uses a range of skills including positive challenge and insightful questions, creative brainstorming and insights based on his own business experience."
N Velissarides, Managing Partner
"In just three sessions Martin was able to show us the bigger picture for our company and, working with us, able to put together a strategy for moving forward to attain it. We would definitely use him again in the future"
Ben. Owner of London cafe chain.
"Being a Coach and NLP Master Practitioner myself, I decided to work with Martin to identify direction and underlying issues in order to move forward.
What I enjoyed was that from the beginning I trusted him and his ability to use appropriate methodology of his immense portfolio in order to bring issues to the surface and deal with them successfully.
His professional guidance and tools helped me to work on a new career progression and I would happily recommend him at any time."
Volker Ballueder, Director cb consulting
"I just wanted to write this note to thank you for all the work you did with me for the last 7 sessions and to let you know that I have learned so much from you about understanding different ways of communication styles and behavioural flexibilities.
I have achieved a lot in terms of my personal development and for that I am truly grateful to you.
I hope we can use your expertise in the future because you have so much to offer."
JW. Finance Manager, IT Company
“Martin has great vision and attention to detail, persuasive powers and convivial personality to deliver beyond expectations. He makes great recommendations from experience so truly offering a consultancy service.”
“I think we all felt that yesterday was the best session so far. To some degree it's because the timeframe we discussed is already upon us, which meant that we were discussing specific and immediate actions rather than stuff that is in the future, so we could relate easily to everything and our roles in achieving these goals.
But I think the thing that I found most useful was that I could see the whole picture rather than individual elements, plus it seems like a cohesive plan.”
Managing Director, Events & Exhibition Company, London
