After 13 years working and training in productivity improvement with companies such as Rolls Royce, Leyland DAF, The Employment Service, Kellogg’s, Royal Bank of Scotland, Northern Foods, Courtaulds, Caradon Bathrooms and Josiah Wedgwood & sons I made the ‘leap’ into marketing
“Seeing the decline in manufacturing and the failure of traditional productivity improvement techniques to reverse the situation, I began looking for new ideas to proactively promote businesses in the market place”.
I purchased a marketing franchise and developed over 30 networking groups training business owners in Word of Mouth, networking and how to generate referrals. Over eight years I trained more than 1000 business owners & BDM’s, organised over 4500 events helping to generate approximately $270 million of new business.
“My passion continues to be to help businesses grow through Word of Mouth and to improve the Customer Experience process. It’s honest, reliable and it’s the customer’s favourite”.

Managing Director WebSource Pacific Pty Ltd
“.......he was good, it wasn’t about him! It was about Linkfire. Some business consultants are all about themselves.......”
“.....I liked Martins ability to work in with the group dynamic and adapting to each situation rather than just bluntly presenting topics without gauging the group attention – well done”
Operations Manger Linkfire Pty Ltd
“Your engaging nature was clearly evident, as you captured the audience right from the start. The feedback from the group after the session was fantastic, and the core questioning that you facilitated deliberately sought to have the staff engage in a more meaningful way. You delivered a very complex topic, in an incredibly simple format, which was immediately latched onto by a number of staff, and therefore a great success. I would be more than happy to recommend you to deliver this facilitated seminar to others”.

...more testimonials on the way...
“I first met Martin when he was a guest speaker at a conference I was attending in March 2010. Martin is a most interesting and engaging speaker, with a deep knowledge of the practical aspects of building business. He has the ability to gather his audience in and involve them in building his case..........so much so that I still remember his examples and the main themes he developed some 6 months later.
Since this first meeting, I have had occasion to work with Martin a number of times and continue to be impressed by his deep expertise, lively presentation style and imaginative approach.
Martin would be of real value to any organization......and I am happy to recommend him.”

“The first time I was in an audience when Martin spoke, I was moved to tell him that he ‘blew my mind’. Martin Bailey’s experience, expertise and incisive contribution to any business professional through his services and programs are a fundamental investment. As a speaker, his interactive style empowers audiences to take action. He sifts through assumptions, reservations and excuses to show you that you are already on the stepping stones to success. He offers pathways that become your blueprint to take you from having contacts, to establishing connections with them and then engaging in meaningful communications. Personal growth and business growth are the inevitable results. I commend and recommend Martin for your business success.”
