Case Studies

Martin worked with the regional director of an international high street brand. The goal of the executive coaching assignment was to support the client in developing robustness and capability to handle multiple challenges simultaneously. The 6 month assignment included stakeholder feed-forward and resulted in the achievement of the coaching goals. Shortly after the assignment ended the client was promoted to an even more senior role. 

Martin worked with one of the Senior Executives of a global Construction company who needed to step-up into a board level role. The goal of the coaching was to prepare this individual to step up by adopting an improved leadership style, enhanced communication approaches and the development of appropriate gravitas. By the end of the 6- month coaching programme the client was dealing effectively and confidently with Board colleagues, managing the increased workload effectively and embracing new challenges. 

Martin worked with a brewery and pub chain who wanted to change attitudes, overcome internal communication issues and turnaround a decline in sales. He worked directly with the regional retail managers to equip them with coaching skills as well as delivering group coaching with the sales team. He also acted a Coach for their internal team of coaches. As a result of his intervention sales improved and communications with the landlords / tenants were better.

Just a quick note to say many thanks for your support and challenge in working through our programme. I found the sessions informative, fun and relevant and like the notion of activity taking me closer to my objectives rather than further away!! I have enjoyed the experience immensely and know that this will add value to my current working situation as well as future ones.”

Sarah Weller, Barclays Bank, UK

Being coached by Martin has been an outstanding experience and has been significant in helping me be successful”

David Thorpe-Tracey, Director, West Ham United FC

The ROI was fast and tangible – producing measurable improvements in productivity. It is however the improvements in teamwork, leadership, problem solving, confidence levels and approach to motivation and innovation, and the fact that these approaches are now firmly imbedded in the organisation that have been most striking. Thanks Martin.”
