I’ve made 7,000 appearances on television and radio since I began broadcasting and last year my comments, guides and advice featured on 4,000 occasions in Britain’s top publications.
I’ve also won numerous awards, including Headline Money’s Expert of the Year, as voted by business, consumer and personal finance journalists.
Consumer rights expertise
I work with hundreds of journalists and broadcasters to provide comments, content, advice, information and background briefings on every industry sector, organisation and consumer product available in the UK.
I’ve built my reputation on the breadth and scope of my knowledge and my passion for helping translate often complex issues in to a language that’s accessible to everyone.
From pet insurance to pensions and from travel agents to ticket agencies, I can help journalists get the information they need to make the news.
Research and responsibility
I specialise in providing context and depth around the stories making the news, including assessing future impacts, overviews of historical practices and unexpected effects and nuances that could impact on a feature.
I’ve built a formidable portfolio of consumer rights expertise across all industries and sectors over the years. But times change quickly and my focus is on adapting this knowledge to the way we live now – and in the future.
My work with the media is researched and sourced thoroughly to the highest standards. I also work with a range of other leading experts in their fields to get their views on emerging issues and entrenched disputes.
Rules, regulations and the law
There are an awful lot of laws, rules and regulations out there – and interpreting them impartially and fairly can have a direct impact on the validity and perception of a story in the media.
Using my knowledge and understanding of how these rules affect us across a range of situations and sectors, I help journalists navigate the complex and often convoluted world of consumer rights.
I have a diverse pool of leading experts, specialists and commentators I can draw on for their views, all of whom are available for broadcast, print or online comments on request.
It’s very easy to simply criticise businesses and organisations in the media. It’s much harder to provide context and creative suggestions on how to make things better.
I’ve worked on some of the biggest consumer campaigns of the last two decades. From excessive bank charges to PPI mis-selling. I’m currently involved in numerous topical campaigns and consultations on issues like the escalating energy and cost of living crisis.
Martyn is extremely knowledgeable about consumer rights and wrongs. He knows his stuff, but most importantly is able to communicate sometimes complex issues with ease. And he can spot business flannel and fobbing off a mile off and will not hesitate to call it out.
