I just finished a six month coaching session with Martin. Throughout the process, I continued to truly be impressed by Martin, and his ability to listen and truly breakdown some of my “oportunties” to grow professionally. He has a unique perspective and was truly able to help me see some of my shortcomings while also calling out some of my strengths. I know our sessions enabled me to grow personally and professionally. If you are ever in need of a coach, I would strongly recommend Martin. I feel he truly helped me become a stronger leader.

Martin has been a great sounding board for me as an executive coach.
Having been both a corporate leader & entrepreneur himself, his advice has been contextual & practical.
More importantly, he is one who is authentic & sincere in his approach, yet jovial in nature.
I would strongly recommend him for a holistic engagement beyond just the career aspect.

Martin has been instrumental in my transition from MNC employment to starting and running my own business. He infuses his friendly conversation with tangible suggestions on areas of improvement, no matter how complex or simple the issue at hand. Martin also delivers fact-based encouragement and inspiration when he sees matters headed in the right direction, giving you the confidence and tools required to forge ahead. I’m delighted to have met and worked with Martin, and I strongly recommend him to anybody considering starting their own business.

Martin is an excellent business coach with the ability to reach across many different cultures. He strikes to the heart of complex issues through a challenging yet measured and empathic approach. I would not hesitate to recommend Martin for management, career or personal training.

Martin was highly recommended to me once exploring options of UAE based executive coaches specializing in “transition coaching” and following international standards. From our very first “chemistry session” it was very clear that he is well positioned to add value in my “crossroads situation” due to his rich professional and private background, outstanding mentoring capabilities and tailored-made individual approach. He helped me out to ground my way of thinking, revisiting current status and developing road map of future options.
Martin has a natural talent to simplify very complex scenarios and helping to identify “what really matters”. I have trust on his professional capabilities and would highly recommend him for everybody seeking for professional advice on transition management.

Martin is extremely talented as a leadership coach. He instantly connects, sets tangible objectives and offers coaching solely catered to your specific situation, needs, profile and requirements. His unique mix of extensive experience, executive presence, flexibility and emotional intelligence gives you the assurance – as your trusted partner – that he can master any challenge and effectively interact with any type of behavioural profile. What’s impressive is his ability to confidently enter into ambiguous situations and dissect complex issues so they can be handled through simple, actionable plans.
The relationship with Martin has addressed my long-standing query of why would any experienced executive need a coach. Because it really works! … Particularly if the right foundation is set from the get go and Martin guarantees it will. I am grateful for his partnership that has helped me follow through my personal plans and highly value our relationship that hope to last for many years.
