I’m Martin, please allow me to introduce you to my new Virtual Academy.
For over two decades, I’ve been successfully helping leaders and managers achieve operational change that delivers clear financial value.
Now, all of the knowledge, insights and resources I’ve acquired during this time have been carefully curated to produce the Virtual Academy learning resource platform.
How Virtual Academy can help your business:
It costs a fortune to recruit new people, yet we often sign them up and leave them to it. Instead, you can easily support them with continuous personal and professional development from Day1.
Everyone needs training in compliance, whether it is GDPR, Health and Safety, Finance or ISO, there are processes and procedures that could be converted to e-learning instead, saving you £1000s in classroom courses and downtime.
If you have a slide-deck of a course that you present or train, we can convert that to a SCORM e-learning package easily and quickly for you to self host, or we can host for you. Get content out of the classroom!
If you need to host your e-learning with us you can. We want to make it easy for you to just give us your content, or use our library to build great professional development journeys for your teams, managers and leaders.
We have lots of courses on management and leadership, as well as leadership coaching and diagnostic/psychometric tools to help supplement your internal training and development offer, or package it in a way that fits your business.
As an accredited provider for ILM we can offer programmes of work for Level 3 and Level 5 Leadership and Management, and Coaching qualifications that you can access remotely to integrate or supplement your own internal programmes
Virtual Academy courses & resources support for teams, managers and leaders:
Aspiring & New Managers
To get better performance, you need better management, and to get better management you need continuous cycles of development. Without learning there can be no change, and learning needs to be accessible and relevant to help your managers turn theory into practice.
Preparing Future Leaders
Leadership is about understanding self, understanding others and understanding business, yet so many managers are promoted or recruited into roles where they have positions of leadership but deliver 'directive' management. With insights and development we can turn mediocre management into future leaders.
Your Best Self at Work
If I ask my plumber to re-wire the fuse box he would look at me funny and then think it was a joke. How much effort we put into understanding our strengths, and those around, and utilising the right resources in the right situations will pay dividends, literally, when it comes to productivity, engagement and performance.
In each area, you’ll find an exclusive bank of support resources including insights, guides, helpsheets and quizzes, proven to help you achieve the most important operational change goals that exist in business.

Results Driven Development:
With over 20 years in training and development, and 6 years in consulting, I have delivered a series of improvements for business and clients that drive key KPIs so you generate real Return on Investment. Here are a few examples:
Improve Pass Rates
Designing a 3month programme of virtual and classroom learning I supported hundreds of technical professionals improve their first time pass rate from 25% to 75%. This saving in lost hours was worth "£1m per year in lost revenue" according to the Ops Director in charge of the project.
Engaging your new starters quickly is key to retention, and requires careful nurturing and support. By utilising virtual learning, great communications and supporting great people we can effectively on-board without breaking the bank! My award winning programme helped reduced attrition in Year One from 40% to 14%.
The HSE (UK Health and Safety Executive) said of my solution to tracking, managing and solving large scale compliance delivery and reporting with minimal operational impact, whilst raising the standard of competence as "the gold standard in compliance, the best we've ever seen."
+ Management Index
By fully understanding the client audience and tailoring content to suit their styles, culture and needs we designed a simple 2 day training intervention and supporting online content. Their internal engagement survey recorded a 7.7% increase in their Management Index and o improvement in overall engagement of employees within 12 months.
+ Personal Performance
Over 3 years of developing talent and supporting continuous learning and development we generated a pipeline that drove the business forward. Senior leaders recorded improvements in their teams individual performance of up to 40% after completing a series of workshops and training at management, when compared against a control group.
+ Business performance
The golden egg of return on investment is bottom line growth. One MD for a business of 5,000 referred to our programme of continuous development, e-learning, coaching and training as impacting his bottom line by 8% in one year. This relationship grew over several years to see huge improvements in business performance.
