I am the founder of Conferize, a platform aiming to disrupt the trillion dollar global conference industry by making conferences more social, transparent and relevant.
I'm also also Co-Founder of Issuu, a Time.com Best Website. Issuu, a 'YouTube for publishing', is now in the US top-100, serving 55+ m users and almost 4 bn pages every month.
I'm also a 2011 member of BNY Talent-100, and hold an MA in Culture & Communications. In 2006 I gave up an international PhD fellowship for the love of entrepreneurship and (almost) never looked back. Generally I operate within culture & technology, innovation & design.
I also co-founded the band Epic Typo that opened for Einstürzende Neubauten at Casa da Musica.
"Martin's value to enterprise is considerable - his skills as communicator and visionary have a fluidity, malleability and elasticity which are a dream to have when faced with the ever-changing context that is business today. He is the enterprise equivalent of a star football player in the ascendant; disarmingly, he also has rare qualities of geniality and modesty which one does not normally associate with virtuosity of this order."
