Testimonials

Martin has provided invaluable coaching and practical guidance to a newly established management team. His business and industry experience can be applied to any team or leadership building project. He has been instrumental in unlocking potential in individuals and teams alike. I would fully recommend his coaching services for new and established organisations. Promoting those values that encourage everyone to be more efficient with their working practices and improving interaction with team members and customers.

I received very enthusiastic feedback from all the team members who took part in the team building event a few weeks ago. They found their DiSC analysis really interesting and fun. So thank you again for all the hard work! I also found the group DiSC extremely intriguing.

I have known Martin for over twenty years and during that time he has built a reputation in our industry as a solid and successful senior executive. During the time that he worked for me directly, he was a valued member of the management board team and successfully delivered a number of projects including the start up and development of two new operating divisions of the group.

I have known Martin for over 10 years and had the pleasure to work with him at Clear Vision Ltd. Martin is a great leader and is also extremely thorough, with an excellent eye for detail. It is no surprise that, with his outstanding professionalism and exceptional integrity, he managed a successful career move towards advising companies from a wide spectrum of industries.

Business Impact UK engaged with the Growth Accelerator programme and following a successful coaching period, a need was identified to bring together the Leadership & Management team’s understanding of how they interact as a group and how their skills, behaviours and approaches to the business could be aligned to develop the business within the high growth phase.

We undertook some research into many approaches and after speaking with Martin it became obvious that his approach and the tools he utilised would add significant value to a high growth business.
Martin undertook individual leadership and management style assessments and feedback sessions with the Directors. He then facilitated workshops with the Directors and Managers. Martin’s approach and professionalism throughout this process was engaging and enlightening to all.

This programme has had a lasting impact on Business Impact UK on a number of fronts; from the senior team understanding why individuals take certain approaches and the benefits of having a cross section of approaches to issues. The Directors have a greater insight into communicating the company vision through alignment and deployment.
This programme has had a lasting effect on the business on many fronts. There has been a genuine return on investment (ROI) through allowing the growth strategy to be implemented in a timely and more cohesive manner.

I would highly recommend engaging with Martin and Routes To Growth.

David Steel, Sales Director
Business Impact UK Limited

Martin was recommended to us to help with some specific developments within our organisation. Our sales teams and managers were introduced, through a series of meetings and workshops, to a new style of understanding ourselves and others within the workplace both internally and externally in order to drive and increase results. On account management, a new system of strategy and planning for our UK business was introduced to us.
In addition, Martin worked with individuals on specific issues in order to fast track projects and individual development. He quickly understood our business and the individuals within it so that services were tailored to our particular needs. The results were such that engaging with Martin is seen as one of the most significant investments the company has ever made.

Martin’s input as my business coach is without a doubt one of the best decisions I have made since starting my business. His structured approach to the Growth Accelerator scheme delivered plans that have enabled me to grow my business significantly in the last 18 months. His extensive experience of leadership and DISC profiling has benefited me and my employees and how we work together as a team and I will continue to use this in the future.

I worked with Martin whilst at Disc Distribution. He was an excellent boss and motivator. His planning and strategies were always meticulously precise and it was a real pleasure to learn many skills from Martin.

Richard Hudson
Global Sales Director

I have known Martin for many years as a business associate and latterly as a business coach. In my opinion he has the attitude, demeanor, calmness and gravitas that a very successful coach and mentor needs.

Ian Curran, Head of International Publishing
THQ Games

I have had the unique experience and pleasure of working with Martin firstly as a client then as a colleague and finally as a line manager.
So I can give Martin a 360 degree reference.
As a client (Clear Vision) he was firm but fair, understanding our business model and how he could get the best for his business from that model.
As a colleague (Fremantle Media) He was a real asset to the team and instrumental in bringing in incremental revenue.
As a line manager (HiT Entertainment), he was an excellent supporter and mentor for me, a true professional, full of integrity. He installed the confidence in me to push my boundaries and work out of my comfort zone to some great success. I owe that to Martin's coaching ability.

Russell Pearson, Senior Director
Home Entertainment UK & EMEA, Hit Entertainment

As a result of Martin's input, we have recently embarked on a structured marketing plan, and the results have been outstanding.
Martin's experience has been instrumental in creating a strategy for the development of the business, and mapping a clear route to achieve our goals. We are in a much better position now than ever, and I highly recommend Martin to anyone considering this kind of coaching.”

“Martin has been working with Brash providing business coaching to me as a sole director / owner. His organisational skills, attention to detail, experience and expertise has helped me focus on strategic planning and goal setting.
His behavioural profiling is insightful and together with other tools Martin knows how to unlock business potential. It is no coincidence that we are experiencing a period of accelerated growth that is both planned for and well managed.
I have and shall continue to recommend Martin to businesses that will benefit hugely from the professionalism, integrity and experience that he offers.”

Richard Brash, Managing Director

Martin has been coaching me and my company, KLOC (previously Performance Web), originally through the Growth Accelerator program and we are now continuing to benefit from his support in a more traditional coaching relationship.
During this time we have been able to achieve substantial growth and I am confident that we will better this over the next 12 months. Much of this growth, along with the ability to cope with the changes that it entails, is founded on the work that we have been doing with Martin and therefore I have no hesitation in recommending him as a business coach and mentor.

Jim Parsons, Managing Director
KLOC Digital Solutions

“It has been a revelation working with Martin. I have in the past been skeptical about the impact that business coaching can have..no longer.
Martin is much more than this he is a business strategist.
In a very short space of time Martin has been able to "lift the floor boards" on my business and more importantly my attitude towards that business.
He is very skilled in what he does, amazing process input along with an array of techniques that have injected purpose into myself and the business.
I whole heartedly recommend Martin and his brand of business strategy support and look forward to working with him for some time to come.”

I have known Martin Adams for many years having worked in the same industry. He always impressed me when our paths crossed and he has recently done so again in his new capacity as a Business Coach. His relaxed style is underpinned by a sharp analytical business brain and he can draw upon a huge repertoire of personal experience.
Personally, he enabled me to re-appraise my current situation and gave me the tools and encouragement to push on once more with added vitality and confidence. This rapidly led to new beginnings and I am most grateful for Martin's help and I would happily recommend him to anyone.

Martin worked with Zest4.TV initially under the Growth Accelerator scheme and then independently as a Leadership & Management Trainer. The benefit that his skills and experience brought to our company cannot be underestimated. He gave us a vision for the next 5 years and gave us the impetus to develop a strong sales and marketing strategy to drive business growth. Our management benefited from expert advice in how to work better as a team. All the way, Martin was patient, punctual and articulate - he left us with a superb and bespoke routemap for significant growth.

I can completely recommend Martin as an excellent Business Coach and Mentor.

Martin has really helped me to focus working on the business not in the business.
