Martin has done what few can, he has extracted invaluable life lessons from his experience and he has distilled the choices that led him from a devastating event, to a successful entrepreneur.

‘I’m paralysed! I’m drowning! HELP!!!’ came the horrified screaming from my inside, as my very primal instinct tries to grasp for air but I can't because I'm drifting helplessly face-down in the black murky water of the river. I could hear my friends joking happily on the river bank. If only they could see what was happening, if they could hear my plight! My conscious mind wrestled with my body’s violent reflex to breathe, barely controlled by the disciplined knowledge of my medical training to remain utterly still and not move my head.

In this new business environment companies basically have two choices, you either adapt or die, it is really as simple as that. In some cases change occurs frustratingly slow and incremental. But most other times it will disrupt, fast and aggressive.
