Martin Brenig-Jones

Martin is MD at Catalyst Consulting Ltd working with blue chip global clients in the field of operational excellence. Prior to this he held a number of senior executive roles in British Telecom (BT).

He is a BQF (British Quality Foundation) certified lean six sigma master black belt and has trained and coached leaders at all levels around the world. He combines operational leadership with an engineering background, with the ability to work across all organisational functions to make change happen. He describes his personal crusade as ‘helping leaders to create brilliant organisations’. Although he can hold his own at the highest intellectual level, he certainly does not have his head in the clouds, preferring practical application and ‘making it happen’. He attributes this to his engineering professional training and grounding.

Martin is a regular conference speaker with a positive, motivational and entertaining style often using props on stage to bring his subject to life.

He is the co-author of a number of publications including the best-selling Lean Six Sigma for Dummies and ‘Lean Six Sigma for Leaders’ with several case studies written by leaders in organisations that Martin has consulted in, including Barclays, Coopervision, and Ricoh.
