Our students have
a few nice things to say about us

"I really recommend Martin as a talent coach – he’s helped me realise what I am good at. I think it’s easy to assume that you already know your strengths, but what’s that really based on? I believe that it’s only once you’ve had a talent coaching session, that you can truly understand how and where to progress your career."
Camilla F. (Head of marketing)
"Martin- your advice was absolutely spot on! You not only provided me with tools to showcase my skills to management, but what’s more important you gave confidence to believe in myself! Thank you and cannot wait to work with you in the future!"
Malgorzata G. (Lawyer)
"Working with Martin was an absolute pleasure. His attention to detail is second to none and his ability to forge strong relationships quickly were integral to his role. I highly commend his senior stakeholder engagement and ability to coach, negotiate and influence."
Iona F. (Director)

Martin Knowles

After studying Law (LLB 2.1 Honurs) I combined my passions for IT and Learning as a technical trainer in a small Tech Startup and was fascinated by how people think and learn as well as how to get return on investment from training. So, I began to take static content out of the classroom and focus on experiences that enabled people to practice and real-play learning rather than simply consume content. My courses increased pass rates for technical training by 300% and I won awards for the Best Training and Development in Europe. 

I then focused my attention on management development, coaching and training over 2,000 managers and leaders in a  career spanning 20years, identifying optimum ways to accelerate learning and capitalise on natural talents.

As well as running my own boutique learning consultancy and online learning platform, I enjoy building programmatic learning solutions that support managers, learners, leaders and professionals to identify and develop their strengths, improve their personal performance and positively impact business results.
