Martz Witty (C.A. (P.P.), Dip.B.S, A.P.S.)
Martz originally wanted to be a motor mechanic but failed to gain an apprenticeship. On leaving school he ended up studying business on his father’s advice. Seven (part-time) years later Martz emerged a fully qualified Chartered Accountant although he has never quite fitted the stereotypical mould!

A graduate (with Honours) from the school of “Hard Knocks” Martz shares and unfolds strategies, ideas and issues for people to ponder, debate and implement. He’s fresh, invigorated, humorous and “real.”

Privately Martz enjoys tasting fine wines, restoring old cars and seeing his two sons, whom he raised as a solo father, turn into fine young men.

Martz career spans small and large Chartered Accounting firms manufacturing and corporate business. This ‘true life’ commercial experience has contributed much to Martz’ success in business and in the advice he gives.

If it can happen to you in business it most probably has to him, from hostile takeovers and tragic investments to unmotivated staff and failing systems. The secret is to use this learning for your improvement! These days Martz works with businesses internationally, sharing successes and learning experiences. 2007 saw the release of his first book in a series of four titled, “Hit the road running! – Gain more customers of the kind you want.”

Martz is a regular presenter at Conferences and Events on tax issues and business matters and his true life stories keep audience participants spellbound and safe in the knowledge that Martz walks his talk.
