Coaching & Mentoring
While working with many of my clients it became apparent that there was a need for some of them to have one-to-one guidance. So I now offer my services to a select number of clients, as a IT Leadership Expert.
For your business or company, the service I office is like having a IT executive come in to help you create a strategy, and plan, for your marketing, helping you to save money on wasted initiatives and building a sustainable environment for continuous improvement.
For the individual, it is having that trusted 2nd opinion, the 2nd pair of eyes and career confidant. A coach and mentor to help you improve your skills, reach your goals and avoid the mistakes of others.
Trying to grow a business or enhance your career can be stressful and time-consuming, but the result of working with me as a coach & mentor means the client has the confidence to take measured risks to increase revenue, capitalise on identified opportunities and get others to drive it forwards with them soContact Martin
Who is Martin Sharp?
Perhaps you have found that there is a lack of clarity as to why change is necessary?
Is the lack of a reason why causing you or your organisation confusion, increased costs and decreasing position? Maybe your organisation or team is not on board with the transformation ahead and are causing delays, distress and distractions, potentially to the point of actively sabotaging the initiative? Possibly the information distributed is not being understood by the audience and is further compounding the problems?
Imagine then that the reason behind the change is understood and those involved in the transformation can see the benefits for themselves personally, for the organisation and those externally to it such as customers, regulators or standards bodies. Your aspirational plan is being formed into a clear digital vision that your organisation can use to reimagine itself, redefining experiences, opportunities and associations.
There has never been a better time to take advantage of these benefits. In a world where even the constant of change is being overtaken by the acceleration of change, to survive and thrive in the 21st century you need to have a digital strategy, have a clear understanding and an alignment with that of your customers.
But who am I? As an Author; Coach; Mentor; Consultant; Speaker; enterprise architect and strategic thinker, I believe in delivering successful change in complex environments and clarity to the most complex of my client issues. Navigating the complex and ever-changing IT landscape, I have been told I my pragmatic solutions deliver change and realise business benefit within every organisation, every time.
I love computers, I have done even when I was a small boy. They are so simple, logical, obedient. But not everything in life is like computing. My career has had its ups and downs, from the of having to make many my employees redundant to the elation of delivering the IT transformation making a merger or acquisition successful. The key for me though is continuous improvement, learning and implementing a diverse and eclectic array of subjects allowing me to not only translate between the business and IT but in many cases remove the divide altogether.
In 2016 I became an award-winning author and Amazon Bestseller with his book: Digital Transformation: The Significant 7 Imperatives for Delivering Successful Change in Complex IT Projects and was asked to write for the British Computer Society for their 2015 publication Digital Leaders. Then in 2017, I was made an international award-winning speaker by the Professional Speakers Academy. And in 2018 became an Amazon best selling author in the leadership category.
When not working, I enjoy spending time with his family exploring, learning and having fun. I performed the recovery of Lower Wharfe Canoe Club, a British Canoe Union affiliated club and recognised by Sports England’s Clubmark accreditation as Chairman and continues as an active paddlesport coach. I have also participated in the International Snow Sculpting competition in Ischgl, Austria as a member of the British Snow Sculpting Team.
