Martin Norbury went from small-time entrepreneur to SME business owner and onto Senior Executive in a multi-million pound corporation in just ten years. Setting up his first business in 1991, using a little bit of office space lent to him by some friends, he went on to successfully exit; years later he generated unbelievable results as CEO at a multinational corporation, turning a loss of £250k per month to celebrating its first £1 of profit in just a matter of months.
Back running his own company, Martin now helps business owners who are stuck in, or stuck on, their business sack themselves through making their business more valuable, more fun and even saleable. His SCALE Model™ is used across 30 industries, earning him the badge of The Scalability Coach™. A business turnaround specialist, Martin is actively involved in buying and selling SMEs, and advises companies on their exit strategies, how to leverage deals and maximise shareholder value.
As well as providing Non-Executive Director support for SMEs, Martin helps global giants focus on their business improvement through people development and effective personal management.
