Talking about the wonder of storytelling.
“Under Martin’s guidance the quality of my speech writing and delivery has improved considerably I have been and am inspired by his approach to the public speaking stage as a pilgrimage, as a performance, a sacred journey, a journey to become what we are – a culmination of dedication, passion and immense practice..”

“Martin has this rare gift to connect with his audience BOTH at the rational and the emotional levels. So listening to his stories will trigger emotions and provoke internal questions: “what would I feel and do in this situation ? how would I react ? what does it mean for me ?”. These questions, applied on the business subject you ask Martin to prepare a speech about, do change our consciousness and leave a strong desire to change and improve oneself.”

I met Martin in autumn of 2014 when I went to his public speaking workshop in Leuven. I truly enjoyed the way the workshop was organized as it had the perfect structure – the interactive component was spot on. Most importantly, Martin was a great coach when it came to giving meaningful advice on how to deliver an outstanding speech and how to improve one’s way of presenting. What’s more, I really enjoyed myself – it was a great way to combine fun with useful learning experience!
