“I wish I’d had access to Martin’s approach to business planning and accounting a few decades ago – life would have been very, very different. The Ad Astra course was a real light bulb session for me – I’m on my 3rd time of watching it and have written copious action points – already furiously implementing. You have had a profound and positive impact on the way I am planning the future of both of our family companies – all for the better.”

Sam Sutton, Business Owner

“If you say something people listen. More than this though, they are likely to carry out your advice and as you know no its action rather knowledge that will get results. Asking the right question at the right time is fundamental to effective coaching, and for me, it’s something you’re exceptionally good at.”

Gary Fulwood, Business Owner

“Martin is not everyone’s cup of tea, but he’s most certainly mine with biscuits to suit! What I mean by that is he offers accountability, aggressiveness, and straight talking to the point coaching. Martin demands hard facts and numbers so that a business can benefit the most from what he offers.”

Dai Rose, Business Owner

“During the time I’ve worked alongside Martin, my business has grown enormously both in terms of revenue and of my understanding of how to grow and scale the business properly. Martin’s insight and meticulous way of analysing and continuously measuring, tweaking and improving elements that are important to the business has helped me achieve and exceed my targets for 2020.”

Lyndsey Hellyn, Business Owner

“Working with Martin is proving to be a critical component to our business, not only is his breadth of business knowledge invaluable but he also has a respectable ability to keep you focussed and on track. To have an external set of eyes look into your business in a supportive way is such an asset and we feel definitely in a stronger position as a result of our ongoing partnership with Martin.”

Sam Hay, Business Owner

“What Martin brings to Mastermind is a real business perspective, ensuring that I am not missing important points of the business journey by getting carried away with the fluffier side, but by focusing on the numbers and the mechanics that drive the business forward.”

Prue Dean, Business Owner

“Martin has had a hugely positive impact on our business. He has a very sharp mind and it never ceases to amaze me how quickly he is able to pinpoint existing and potential problems within a business. Just 2 weeks ago, Martin came up with an innovative new idea for an additional income stream within our own business and we very much look forward to working with him to help us bring this to fruition.”
