“I had the pleasure of working with Martin while co-organising the European Regional Forum of Amnesty International. Thanks to the excellent preparation (although within an incredible tight time frame due to the covid19 crisis) and facilitation of Martin we managed to have an excellent online meeting with 100+ Amnesty-delegates from across the region, bringing us together in a spirit of solidarity, shared purpose and common determination. Inclusive, efficient, fruitful and meaningful were only some of the words used by participants to evaluate the meeting. We achieved this result thanks to our partnership with Martin. Can’t wait to embark on another challenging facilitation adventure with him :-).” – Wies De Graeve, Directeur bij Amnesty International Vlaanderen – April 16, 2020

“Earlier this year I had the pleasure to meet and be coached by Martin in a Group Facilitation [Methods] workshop he provides through ICA:UK. Thanks to Martin’s exceptional facilitation and coaching skills, this highly effective workshop has provided me with a range of techniques that I can use in my professional and voluntary roles. But without doubt, it was Martin’s Leadership style that helped me most of all. Not only did I develop facilitation skills, but as a direct result of attending this workshop I have been able to unblock several ideas for developing an experiential leadership programme. An exceptional course, run by an exceptional facilitator.” – Tim Ebdy, ROV Instructor. Experiential Learning and Development Practitioner – April 7, 2015
