Martin brings his expertise as a certified Business Coach since 2013 to the travel industry; after running a travel agency of his own since 2012 as well as a successful business coaching practice under the #1 Global Business Coaching franchise of ActionCOACH. His love of travel while working alongside other travel professionals helped him see a need within the travel industry. Once he decided to focus on the travel agent as a niche he eventually found his way to Travel Leaders of Tomorrow and Nexion Travel Group. This has allowed Martin to be a part of impacting lives nationally by creating the Silver Magellan Award winning business coaching program for new to the industry agents, called NEXstrides.

Martin’s passion for helping people find new levels of success by bringing the right solution specific to each person that helps them solve their greatest problem. Typically that means setting goals and having a plan of action that gets you closer to those goals.

As your Business Coach and agent, Martin helps you deliver the results you desire using proven tools, methodologies and systems, tested and perfected over tens of thousands of businesses worldwide for over more than two decades.  None of it is rocket science, we just sometimes need that extra level of accountability.
