Martin Norbury

Non-Executive Adviser

Ex-CEO and Scalability Coach Martin Norbury provides advice for SMEs and Corporates on growth performance, leadership management and investment/exit strategies.
 

Martin set-up his own business - Advocate Business Services - over seven years ago to help business owners choose what they do with their tomorrow. His passion to help entrepreneurs achieve their success was the ultimate driver behind his #1 Amazon Bestseller I don’t work Fridays.
 

He set-up his own business in 1991 using a little bit of office space lent to him by some friends. Many years later he generated some impressive results as CEO at a multinational corporation, turning a loss of £250k per month to celebrating its first £1 of profit in just a matter of months.
 

Martin took these learnings to create his unique SCALE Model, a framework for how to rapidly grow a business enabling an exit.
