Recent mentees include mid-career executives from Capgemini, Samsung, and The University of Sydney, as well as independent consultants, small business owners, and start-ups through Telstra's muru-D accelerator program. In addition, I was a Mentor for the Singapore Council of Women's Organizations for several years.

My approach reflects my “quick-start” style, leverages my diverse background, and, if appropriate, uses tools and inspiration from  Access Consciousness®, acting techniques taught in the top schools in Sydney and Los Angeles, and Asian philosophies.

TESTIMONIALS

"I successfully make pitches on behalf of businesses all the time, but when it came time to pitch my own capabilities for a high-growth job opportunity, I was stuck. Having known Marta for many years, and familiar with her extensive body of work helping to shape brands, it was a no-brainer to reach out to her.  

I thought it would take some time to get in the groove, but Marta immediately jumped into action; she carefully listened to my objectives, she asked questions that helped me synthesize my thinking and, most importantly, she instilled a level of confidence in me that led to the most fruitful conversations of my career.  Her aptitude, instincts, and track record put Marta in a league of her own."

"Being Bespoke with Marta was exactly what I was seeking in my life. What I appreciated most was the encouragement to find out what I truly needed and desired -- and the space to own those things and be okay with them!  The customized, day-long intensive experience was so perfect -- and it brought me a tool that I've come to rely on in the months since, which is something I am EVER grateful for [Kundalini!!!]. The work was intense but critical to my self-worth. Not only did it help me to really see myself as someone worth celebrating, I achieved tangible results. I would wholeheartedly recommend Marta for anyone ready to take a deeper step into exploring their life, their purpose, and their whole reason for being. "

"Life sometimes brings you to meet the people you need! Marta helped me to set a clearer goal for my new-born entrepreneurship. She helped me to understand my blockages and planted seeds that lead me a few months later to embrace my path and projects. Her frankness and kindness were really what I needed to have as good mentoring. Thanks again for your inspirational support."

"Working with Marta was the best money I'd ever spent on a mentor. Not only was she able to unpack what made me tick but she was then able to show me how to bring those seemingly disparate parts together in a way that truly excited me. I totally respect her opinion which was delivered in a professional, no-nonsense, tell-it-like-it-is manner. She's very empowering!"
