About Us

Martyn DrakeMartyn Drake is a speaker, writer and a trusted advisor to a broad range of businesses. His expertise spans strategy, leadership, growth, change, sales, profitability and negotiation.

Martyn founded Binley Drake Consulting with one objective: 
To help ambitious leaders improve their businesses.

In the past, he has held senior roles at large blue-chips including The Boots Company, Punch Taverns and The Spirit Group. At the former, he spent time in Product Development and Corporate Strategy, before managing two of Boots’ largest retail categories and leading strategic change programmes that delivered over £100m of cost savings.

Later, as Director of Strategy at the Spirit Group, he oversaw the £1.8bn integration of the group into Punch Taverns Plc before taking over the reins as Director of Product for the estate’s 700 managed pubs.

Since founding his consultancy at the start of 2009, he has advised organisations ranging from small family businesses right up to some of the world's most iconic brands. His client list includes global household names like Weight Watchers and Walgreen Boots Alliance; life-saving non-profits like the NHS and the National Autistic Society; mid-sized manufacturers like Alstons and Advance Group, and ambitious, fast-moving entrepreneurs like King of Shaves and Wingman. 

He has helped them to raise their sights, and to set, and achieve more ambitious goals. He has guided them through transformational change and helped them to focus their energies on the things which are most critical to their success. Finally, he has helped them to dramatically improve their sales and profits through developing more collaborative, productive and profitable relationships with their customers, suppliers and business partners.
