“I thoroughly enjoyed working with Marcus. He was an entertaining and thoughtful colleague as well as being very good at his job. He comes at problems from many angles – he does not have a “one size fits all” approach and that is one of the things that makes him successful”.

– Paul Halliwell
Executive Director at ViewMyChain & COO at TwentyCi Group of Companies

“I asked Marcus to take a chance and join MNC to start an adventure into social media. This was a stretch for ADP not for Marcus. Quickly Marcus brought the division’s presence up to a good standard and then we began socially surrounding our targets. My only regret was losing Marcus to the wider company.”

— Tim Johnson,
SVP International

“Marcus has a wonderful way of condensing a lot of information and opportunity for change into a short time frame, the greatest part of this skill, though is making it usable and useful, Marcus uses processes, questions and tools to really focus in on the objectives I had. In a short consultation session I went away with so much value for both short-term change as well as the longer term. Thank you Marcus”

— Thomas Hemmings,
Senior Business Change Manager

“Marcus has been instrumental in our working relationship. From passion through to implementation, I highly recommend working with him.”

— Sean Daly,
Director (founder) at SOLID Structures & Infrastructure

“You can take it as a given that Marcus has all the expected attributes – driven, focused, ethical, hard-working etc. But the one thing for me that genuinely sets Marcus apart from the masses is his visionary approach. He has a truly exceptional outlook that is represented in the way he approaches his clients and his deals. Working with Marcus is an absolute pleasure.”

— Simon Sanderson,
Managing Director

“I met Marcus in Bucharest where he came to deliver training on Social Selling with the purpose of educating our Tele-prospecting team on how to leverage the social media channels along the pre-sales process. I was impressed by the extensive knowledge he has on this topic and his passion for Social. Marcus was able to connect the impact of social media to business value, and I found this really impressive. Professionally it’s been a real pleasure to meet Marcus and be part of the respective training. Thank you Marcus!”

His calming nature and professionalism immediately puts you at ease so you can grasp his concept to take you to the next level.”

— Kenny Dodds,
Business Development Director

“Having worked with Marcus during our time at ADP, he was the first person that came to mind when I needed support from a social media perspective. Having worked in the same industry for a long time I needed help with thinking about how I wanted to be perceived out there in the market and Marcus provided insightful and thought-provoking ideas and guidance which was invaluable to me.

I would certainly recommend working with Marcus if you are a business trying to scope out a social strategy or an individual trying to figure out what to do to improve your social presence and engage with customers and potential customers on social media. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with him again.”

— Juliet Barclay,
Benefits Support Manager & Supervisor

“Marcus is one of a kind and a rare combination of marketing skills and technological know-how. We both share some expert groups, and every now and again Marcus will suggest something that is simply brilliant. Recently he has helped by sharing his vast technical knowledge to streamline some of the clunky work methodologies I have adopted. Simple straightforward advice, a man after my own heart, with buckets loads of patience thrown in. Everything explained simply and easily along with his great social selling input the combination has transformed how I work. No more wasted time on trying to get apps to work. Highly recommend you connect and start talking to him; he is so good at what he does.”

— Angus Grady

“Marcus is one of those rare people who can draw in even the most sceptical person with an explanation around any chosen topic. The term Evangelist is used all too often these days, but I truly believe he is a social media evangelist and I was able to witness many meetings where he delivered this message. Even though we didn’t have direct reporting lines I really enjoyed working on the successful VoiceStorm launch project in the UK with Marcus. His ability to be impartial, supportive, and encouraging is second to none, and I miss our fortnightly social media calls.”

— Danusia Jolliffe,
Marketing & Customer Services Director

“Marcus has been a refreshing inspiration to our multinational team of business consultants and sales managers.

Then: Marcus really helped us personally and as a team to create a momentum in the use of social media.”

— Olivier Leullier,
Global Sales Manager western Europe

“Never have I met somebody with more passion for Social. In our team, he was the absolute subject matter expert for Social Selling. He opened up platforms like LinkedIn and Twitter to our sales force and made them use it as sales tools. He implemented tools like VoiceStorm to make that easier, and he developed and produced training and manuals. But what you will remember most of all when working with Marcus is his passion for what he does. He can talk about it for hours and knows what he is talking about. He is well-informed and sincerely wants you to benefit from that knowledge as well. He does so in a nice and respectful manner which makes it a joy to work with him. Marcus is a man with ideas, who has learned to put them to actions as well. That makes him an asset to every company that is looking for a passionate and knowledgeable subject matter expert on Social!”

— Rob Wasserman,

Marcus helped my team in different ways, by supporting our executives to improve their social presence or educating our Sales teams on how to leverage the social media channels along the sales process. By sharing best practices, supporting Demand Gen campaigns, deploying social tools such as VoiceStorm, creating learning videos, and finally delivering online and on-site training, Marcus helped us to take our Social Selling acumen to the next level.”

— Yohan Labesse,
Director of Lead Generation

We began working together on a very big, complex program at ADP GESI with a lot of visibility inside the company, so the stakes to succeed were high. In the short period of time since the program has been implemented, it has seen a great deal of success, with global employees benefiting daily from our efforts. Marcus has great vision, leadership skills, and a strong ability to execute. He has a unique ability to get the most out of his team (whether they are direct reports, colleagues, or vendors), while also remembering to treat them like people who also have important things going on outside of work. I hope to get another opportunity to work with Marcus soon.”
