Martin Robert Hall is an award-winning speaker, author and business coach.

Martin’s clients range from elite athletes and sports teams to small business and large organisations seeking the mental edge to stand out from the competition.

Sir Alex Ferguson has praised his work, and in 2018 he was awarded Business Coach of the Year at the International Coaching Awards.

One of Martin’s elite sports clients is former Manchester United and Rochdale FC footballer Joe Thompson. Joe incredibly overcame cancer twice at the age of 23 and 27 and successfully returned to the football pitch on both occasions, against the predictions of the specialists.
