ADI can’t thank you enough for sharing your knowledge and expertise.  As you can tell, I really enjoyed your session and workshops.  I came away with such great information!  I can’t wait to get your book!Chris Diefenthaler, Executive Director, Assistance Dogs International (ADI) organiser of ADI’s global conference 2021.

Organising an event and looking for new ideas, fresh perspectives and thought-provoking content?

Whether the event is for 12 or 1200, virtual or in-person, get in touch, and I will be happy to share some of the topics and formats that have worked for me with audiences in both the non-profit and for-profit sectors. A selection of previous topics for keynotes and seminars are below – if you’re looking for something in particular, just ask.

See an example of Martyn in action at a hospitality industry conference for 900 pub managers and hoteliers.

Third-sector topics include:

  • Bad strategy: the five critical signs of a bad strategy, how to spot them, and how to avoid them
  • “Doing Good” is not enough: why operational excellence is so critical for profitable trading, yet can be so elusive for charities
  • Ethical selling: how to do serious business development without selling your soul
  • Trading the future: the three great ‘waves of change’ facing public sector services, and what charities serving those markets need to be doing now to prepare
  • Building business income: the critical elements you need to build a profitable commercial trading division
  • A smarter culture: how trading charities can develop a more diverse, commercial and professional culture

For-profit topics can be found here
