Here are some of the things that clients have said about working with Martyn…

“The impact for Sense has been massive. Martyn has helped us to change what we believe is possible, and to really push our aspirations and our belief in the difference we can make for the people that we support.”

“If you’re looking to understand how you can increase the impact and the reach of your organisation, and how you can bring your people together to unite behind that, you should reach out to Martyn”

Chris Jarrett, Group Engagement Director, Sense and Sense International

“Martyn took us on a journey to develop a strategy that we are now all confident in and compelled by, and we all feel like we own. The Board accepted the recommendations more quickly and more fully than we could have possibly imagined, and said that this was the best, most cohesive, and well thought-through strategy they had seen.”

“I would absolutely recommend Martyn and be very happy to work with him again.”

Irene Sobowale, CEO, Disabilities Trust Group

“Martyn is the best strategy consultant I have worked with. He goes far beyond facilitating strategy; he challenges, guides and informs the team of other options that we may have never experienced.”

Becky Bristow, Director, Dogs Trust Ireland

“We were able to successfully identify commercial concepts and develop them into propositions, but more than that, we were able to take a group of leaders into an exploratory space that has broadened their thinking in the way they are now designing services.”

“Martyn has enabled us to think differently about the changes we will require to sustain our services in the long run. This has been a very powerful and enabling process, that is now setting the framework for the future of our charity”

Nicky Shaw, Operations Director, Blind Veterans UK

“The impact Martyn had, was to get the whole team to understand and recognise the key challenges that we face, and how we should all work together differently to tackle them”

“Any organisation that recognises it’s got a need to change, to be more sustainable and fit for the future, and has people who are prepared to be challenged and open minded, will have a really successful working relationship with Martyn. And he’s good fun!”

Mark Lever, CEO, National Autistic Society

“The impact Martyn has had, is that we now have a very clear plan of what we need to do, we feel much more confident in the commercial space, we have secured some contracts, we have been earning some income, and I’m really excited about the potential, which is credit to Martyn.”anthony nolan

Jan Tregelles, CEO, Royal Mencap Society

“I’brooked like to extend a huge thank you to Martyn who has supported me in leading this process, and using his excellent facilitation skills, has helped engage so many staff and trustees in the strategic discussion; he has also given me support in preparation for meetings and summarising discussions, which has been an enormous help. Martyn challenged my thinking, he’s confident and hugely experienced and I’ve enjoyed enormously working with him.”

Petra Ingram, CEO, The Brooke

skills for care“Martyn has this ability to unpick things, to hold up a mirror, and to move people on as well as the decisions. We ended up with a piece of work that was really thoughtful, really useful and really energising for people. We couldn’t have done that in a really short timescale without Martyn’s support.”

Oonagh Smyth, CEO, Skills for Care

skills for care“Martyn has helped us recognise that we can stay true to our values and generate money. There is a place and time when you do need someone from outside the organisation to help you change direction. We knew where we wanted to get to, we thought we knew how to get there, but now I see we didn’t. We do now.”

Sharon Allen, CEO, Skills for Care

He opened our eyes to the bigger picture, so that we would be able to reach better decisions. His ability to simplify and to get to the nub of it was thoroughly impressive.”
