“Martin was great to work with and was a brilliant advisor, gave me a lot of confidence and I would highly recommend him to anyone.” Sarah Gorse MCC “Martin provided a brilliant presentation on the benefits of Social Media. It really opened our eyes to the many opportunities that are out there. He was interactive, interesting and gave us some real platforms to deliver on. Steve Dourass – Macmillan Cancer Support “I have worked with Martin on several of projects over a number of years whilst employed as Senior Facilities Manager at BAE Systems . I certainly value his knowledge and the value that he delivers. I have no hesitation in recommending him to others and would routinely consider him for future opportunities.” Martin makes things happen! I first made contact with Martin through be2camp, of which he is one of four founders. As an organisation it exemplifies much of what Martin is about – collaborative, enabling, proactive, forward looking, optimistic, dedicated and tenacious. Whenever I have asked Martin for help or input he has always delivered, supporting my venture into blogging, helping me make decisions, introducing useful people. His work has integrity and stature. Don’t hesitate!” Su Butcher Martin has helped our contracting business develop strategies aimed at building lasting relationships with clients. He has great strengths in understanding what clients want, what “the big picture” is in the built environment industry, and has some great innovative ideas as to how businesses can adapt and grow in the 21st century. Highly recommended!” Dan Adamson “Martin is a dynamic innovator focused on improving the built environment and the facility management field. His dedication and passion for exploring methods and practices, policies, and theories within the building profession is focused and driven. The launch of the first Be2Camp event in London and his continued work in educating others in this field are proof of his abilities to organize and execute ground-breaking industry events.”
