What Our Clients Say About Us

We had a number of small groups undertaking presentation training with Martyn and Steven, with an emphasis on enhancing online presentation skills as well as improving the overall quality of our presentation delivery. We found Martyn and Steven very professional and friendly to work with and had very positive feedback from all those participating in the workshops. I would definitely recommend MSB for anyone looking to improve their presentation skills at both the individual and corporate level. Their flexibility in helping to tailor a specific course to meet our requirements was very helpful.

Chris Weaver

Portfolio Manager, City of London Investment Management

Working with MSB Executive has been joyful, inspiring and very beneficial both for the company and for individuals. We set up a series of workshops which were hugely popular and left people clamouring for more. Steven made the sessions instructive, fun, team-building and very engaging indeed and followed up with very helpful support materials. I might also add that it reflected well on me, as a training manager, for having brought him in! Feedback from the workshops included “This is the course I’ve been waiting years for – without realizing it” and “Boy, this has been one of the best decisions [to sign-up] ever – Thanks for helping me find my voice!”.

Adam Sutcliffe

VP, Legal and Business Affairs, NBC Universal International Networks

Working with MSB Executive was a game-changer for improving my communication skills. The coach’s ability to listen, understand, and provide tailored guidance was remarkable. He created a supportive and trusting environment that allowed me to open up, explore my potential, and challenge myself. MSB Executive’s coaching style is a perfect blend of encouragement, accountability, and practicality. My coaching during a period of 12 months has had a profound impact on my professional journey. Thanks to MSB Executive’s guidance, I have become a more effective and confident public speaker.

Head of Sustainable Investing Research,

Leading Global Asset Manager

During lockdown, we offered all our teams training on online presentation skills with MSB Executive. It was clear from the off that online presentation skills for training seminars, conferences and meetings were not a nice-to-have but a must-have both for lockdown and for the future. Our trainer, Steven Maddocks, worked with small groups to improve skills through a series of practical tips, exercises and games, whilst providing constructive, individual offline feedback. It was also great fun! Cannot recommend more highly.

Chief Operating Officer, Sharpe Pritchard LLP

Martyn immediately puts clients at their ease, enabling him to understand areas for development and tailor the workshop accordingly. This flexible approach enables him to deliver group exercises effectively whilst allowing individual feedback. The workshops are engaging and fun, but at the same time provide very practical techniques for participants to use and build upon. Participants have found his coaching invaluable.

Natalie Norton

University of Winchester

MSB Executive conducted an inspirational and innovative presentation workshop for all members of my team. They have a unique ability to coax the best out of the most reluctant presenter and polish the more accomplished orator all within the same session. MSB’s techniques stay with you, so the impact for me personally has been felt on a long-term basis. We will be having MSB back in and I would recommend them to anyone.

Daniel Rowntree


MSB Executive were able to help one of my key team members develop her confidence and skills in communication which in turn aided our business development work. They understand our world and this made the follow up 1-2-1 meetings really practical and effective.

Dominic Bradbury

Kerve Creative

Following the training, I had a Client meeting where they opened with “You probably can’t help us…” and ended with them agreeing product presentations, collaboration on developing standards for their industry and sending a pilot job to us as a trial. Yes, it helped. I admit it, Martyn has taught me how I can enjoy Presentations AND Sales, wonders never cease!
