Martyn is proud to share some of the kind words provided by senior leaders that he has worked with.

David Macleod OBE


Co-Chair of Engage for Success


"Martyn is an exceptional leader.  He inspires people with his vision for how much better our workplaces can be and follows through with practical implementations.  He is authentic, inspires trust and that brings people with him.  It has been a privilege to work with him over many years at Engage for Success where he has made a major contribution. Thank you Martyn!"

Michael Anderson CB


Former CEO of CIFF


"As HR Director at the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation, Martyn led the organisation through significant and often complex organisational change in a highly demanding environment.  He inherited a large portfolio of challenges and quickly won the trust of staff and management alike with his professional approach.   Martyn’s work on strategy and organisational development is excellent; he brings comparative experience from many organisations and has rich professional networks.  He also transformed our employee engagement and performance management.   He remained universally liked and respected among all the staff, even in the midst of tough discussions.   Martyn is easily the best HR professional I’ve worked with over the last 30 years"


Dr Duncan Brown


Head of HR Consultancy, Institute of Employment Studies


"In recent years I have made some of my biggest contributions as a professional, and had the most fun, working with Martyn.  I have always found him to be a courageous, inspiring and innovative HR Director, a role model for where our profession needs to get to, rather than where much of it is still positioned."


Sir Nicholas Young


Former CEO of British Red Cross



"I've known Martyn since he joined British Red Cross in 2003.  Martyn made fantastic progress and I wasn't surprised that he was successful applying for our first talent management programme.  Martyn was always quick to undertake the challenging jobs, was an active member of our leadership team and it's been great to watch his career as an HR Director in the charity sector flourish.  He has a wide range of skills and was a pleasure to work with."
