Trained by the SAS and US Navy SEALs, Martyn Helliwell served as the British military’s first commissioned professional survival instructor. His huge and powerful motivational presence does not come from standing behind a lectern alone, but by taking you into his truly amazing world of extreme living. His presentations are as energetic as they are thought provoking.
Equally at home in a conference or an after-dinner setting, he effectively demonstrates how to achieve success through planning, commitment and effective teamwork coupled with unshakable self-belief and determination to reach each successive goal.
He inspires business leaders and executives to join him in his world of survival, enlightening people on the values of Leadership, Empowerment, Innovation, Vision and peak performance, relating memorable real life ‘survival stories’ to the workplace. He has been to Mount Everest, lived in the Arctic for 9 years, fought a war (twice!), walked across burning coals over 150 times and been stalked by a Lion in Africa!
Areas of Expertise
Martyn uses his incredible ability to communicate, plus his passion for the outdoors, to illustrate his principles for success. He recognises and acknowledges the talents and skills in each individual; he shares with you his secrets to release the potential of your greatest resource (your people) and invites you to create an environment where everyone's contribution is understood to be vital to the companies’ success.
In highly entertaining, humorous and inspiring presentations Martyn demonstrates the principles behind his extraordinary life of adventure and ultimate achievement. Let him take you in the comfort of your conference business class seat to the frozen Arctic tundra, to the blistering heat of the Desert and to the humid undergrowth of the Jungle.
He will guide you from the side of the highest mountain on Earth to the hostile terrain of the corporate city and high street! TV credits include BBC1 Inside Story, BBC1 Are you Super Human, BBC2 Survival Steady Cook and co-presenter for C5’s Fugitives Series.
If it’s a memorable event you are after then you could do no better than his ‘Inspirational Fire Walking’ seminar. As a fully qualified fire walking instructor Martyn uses the most powerful of metaphors ‘the fire walk’ to demonstrate how to achieve the impossible in life and business, to be the very best in your field, and how to never miss another business opportunity!
‘’ Thank you for making it a very memorable evening that helped improve our team relationships and made us realize that if we put our minds to do something, we can achieve it’’
Alison Crookes – Head of Learning and Development – Barclays South Africa
"Remember this moment forever…" When did you last hear your staff say that on a training day? But I'm proud to say that I did, " Martyn's uniquely motivational personal experiences and refreshingly innovative approach to training, challenged us physically and mentally, but above all taught us new things about ourselves and each other. In an agency of more than 150, it's easy to be strangers, but that day new bonds were formed. An understanding of each other's strengths and weaknesses brings respect. Respect is what builds great teams.
"In short, it works.... so much so, that we have now committed to a number of exciting new programmes with Martyn for next year."
Mike Spicer - Managing Director ARC Marketing
"You helped us to identify key issues and problem areas within our Management teams, in addition to offering a methodology to overcome them.
"The best compliment that can be paid to your presentation of the 'Best Year Yet' team development strategy, is that all our Regional Managers have voluntarily implemented the same programme within their regional teams.
"More than anything else, I would like to thank you on behalf of Lundbeck for the challenging but always inspiring programme that you put together in the frozen winter wonderland of Sweden. The sheer variety of challenge presented by an ice-bound overnight bivouac on the one hand, and the fire-walking sequel to the superb Black-Tie Gala Dinner on the other, astounded all of us!"
Nigel Crabtree - MD Lundbeck Pharmacutical UK
‘’A life changing experience, truly awesome!’’
Martin Leong – Director, Barclays Africa and Middle East
"I had been sceptical about the value compared to other alternative methods. As it turned out I would now find it difficult to achieve significant improvements without the high level of practical practice... a memorable experience."
Paul Foreman -MD Unipart International
‘’Frankly, having read your CV I wondered whether you could live up to it ……. My concerns were completely groundless! Without exception everyone was full of praise and have asked when can we book you again……..
S A Fitzpatrick – Events Secretary PROBUS
"The session was excellent and gave me a better insight into effective communication and listening skills."
"I don't think that it could have been more effective... I feel more focused about what I want and how I can achieve it... definitely recommended." "The benefit for me was focus — where there is a will there is a way.
