Awaris Team

Martin Summerfield

Facilitator and coach

Martin works with organizations, teams, and individuals to build resilience and enhance effectiveness. His approach is to always remain curious and to ensure mindfulness is always relevant to a given workplace and corporate culture. Any intervention Martin provides is anchored in current research.

Why am I working for Awaris?
Awaris operates with great integrity, basing its approach on current research and shaping its interventions to meet a client’s needs. There is a wealth of experience within the Awaris team and a willingness to share and support colleagues. I feel these qualities combine to place Awaris at the forefront of mindfulness in the workplace. Martin joined the Awaris team in 2021.
