Introduction

With over 25 years of experience driving growth and building organizational capability to innovate with firms like Procter & Gamble, Cisco, and Avery Dennison, Martin comes with world-leading hands-on knowledge and experience turning innovation concepts and ideas into real business outcomes. In 2006, Martin relocated to China to start up the Asia Pacific Innovation Center for a Fortune 500 company. He now serves as an Executive Coach at GloCoach where he helps emerging leaders develop the necessary skills to succeed in China's fast-paced business environment.

A seasoned practitioner of innovation leadership and management, Martin has served in pivotal leadership roles for some of the world's most innovative companies, including Senior Vice President of Strategy at Feng Group and Director of Innovation for Avery Dennison. In 2012 he began his own innovation practice, working closely with senior business leaders in firms like Johnson & Johnson, Intel, L’Oréal, Auchan, and Inchcape to help them think differently about how they lead and manage teams to bring new value propositions to market. Contracted with Cisco Services as their Senior Innovation Architect, Martin was tasked to develop and deploy a ground-breaking business growth program. In 2013, that program was awarded the HBR/McKinsey M-Prize for “Innovating Innovation”, and within 18 months had dramatically changed the way Cisco’s Services businesses create, manage and implement their growth initiatives. This program continues to be deployed more broadly across Cisco Systems globally.

Since 2012, Martin has been working with Fortune 500 firms in China to design and deliver incubation and acceleration programs. In 2017 he designed and rolled out the idea acceleration programs for Intel China’s Ideas2Reality Program, which receive the International Innovation Award from Enterprise Asia. Martin also designed and deployed programs for Johnson & Johnson’s Emerging Market Innovation Center and Honeywell China’s Idea Incubator. Martin recently, joined the Fung Group’s Fung Academy to lead their Strategy and Business Practices team.

As a strong believer in growth mindset and continuous development, Martin is also a certified facilitator of the Midnight Lunch creative thinking and innovation methodology. In addition, Martin is a certified facilitator of the Creatix process for building both individual and organizational innovation capabilities. Developed by Richard and Jacqueline Byrd (author of The Innovation Equation), Creatrix is the world’s most proven methodology for increasing the “Innovation Mindset”.
