About Martyn Anstey

Welcome, thank you for taking a few moments to check out my site which celebrates growing and learning by pushing my own perceived limits and seeing what’s truly possible when you find ‘Flow’.I’m a Global entrepreneur, investor, author, consultant, connector and philanthropist passionate about being my best and most authentic self to uplift humanity and create a positive, peaceful and sustainable world.
I’ve been blessed to have worked, traveled and lived across the world (90 countries and counting) and learn and grow from both “official” mentors in the work place, in academic classrooms, in seminar rooms and in ashrams/retreats but perhaps some of my most influential ‘growing/learning’ has been from so called “unofficial” and certainly, much less well known mentors; observing others, experiencing and absorbing experiences on my travels far and wide and then, on my own doorstop. I am so grateful for each of every one of you. Thank you.
And then finally, growth by simply pushing myself. Pushing beyond my perceived limits to grow and expand through mental and physical challenges, adventures and expeditions. Since a young age growing up in rural English countryside between Dartmoor and Exmoor, I’ve always been curious of “what’s over the horizon” and this question has led me to some amazing places, meeting awesome people and creating and sharing truly magical experiences in a quest to find out what’s possible.
I’ve learnt so much about myself when faced with another mountain pass to cycle up in the Andes when daylight went hours ago, the Government has declared a National State of Emergency due to Tropical Storms I am cycling through and then my rear tyre decides to goes flat or the time I was on night watch on a 60ft sailing boat through a storm and I needed to ascend the top of the mast to secure the main sail and I hate heights, cold weather and lets just say I am not a naturally gifted swimmer. It is from some of these experiences that I have grown the most and been in “Flow”. Where time slows down, my senses heighten, where ‘self’ disappears, where intuition, clarity, effort and focus all come together and I feel that oneness, that connection. And that’s why I enjoy these challenges, adventure sports and expeditions. I certainly don’t do it to go from A to B.
May each of you find your ‘Flow’, embrace it and live it.
Blessings,
Martyn Anstey

    "We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.” -Winston Churchill

    Until recently, I contributed my time, money, advisory and network scheduling the name time every week on a predominantly anonymous basis.

    After experiencing a recent health challenge, I’ve decided it’s time to up my game on think bigger and this will only be achievable working with others and become more public.

    My belief is that people do wish to give and contribute but they are also busy or simply not aware of how they can make an impact beyond a financial donation. It needs to be simple and convenient. For example, at a simple level, think how many business owners you know who would be happy to provide their meetings rooms for free to local organisations if it was convenient, easy and quick.

    Then, think how many business owners would happily provide their product or service free or at cost if they knew it was getting in the right hands and it was simple, easy and quick for them to do so.

    The We.R.1. Project is born and I’m excited to see how it will unfold.
    In the first BETA phase, we are bringing children’s education products an services into developing countries for underprivileged children. At its simplest, we are working with local foundations, government authorities and other parties who can secure effective implementation/roll out in-country. We then engage business owners of leading education products and services and offer to help them plug them into this existing distribution platform making it simple, quick an defective for them to contribute.

    • Lucy Gould - Advertising Partnerships

      I had the pleasure to work with Martyn Anstey on numerous high profile projects across different business units across the Financial Times Group and have known him for over 10 years. From our first project together launching FT.com paid-for subscription service (first in our market), Martyn displayed the rare skill of bringing together multiple departments of editorial, sales and marketing for a successful launch which led to his next success, building a new internal department from scratch, Channel Marketing and then launching FT’s first ever, B2B brand to support all revenues coming into the FT Group. Martyn not only brought together various departments but also then branched out to replicate the success across various countries and regions in the world. Martyn possesses the ability to bring teams and cultures together at the highest strategic level to focus on the priorities and lead and inspire to deliver consistent results to the bottom line. Martyn conducted business with the highest integrity, honesty and transparency at a very high level.

    • Chris Catchpole - Director of Data & Insight at truRating

      I worked with Martyn for almost 3 years on multiple high profile projects at the Financial Times Group. Martyn always brought a fierce determination and will to get the job done to a high standard, often driving the group when others where willing to settle.
      Since then Martyn has gone on to do some many interesting and innovative things, I find it hard to keep up. If you want someone to bring energy, knowledge and a fantastic will to succeed, then Martyn most certainly ticks all those boxes.

      Martyn is a strong leader who has high standards yet gives his team the space to learn, grow and deliver. He is strong communicator and influencer not only with his own team but, across the company and externally. He is a strategic quick thinker especially during high-pressure situations such as product launches and when things don’t go to plan. Martyn built our team from scratch and set not only a work standard for us but also the way we conduct business with trust and integrity.

    • Mark Suckling - Principal at Digital Media Partners (DMP)

      Martyn Anstey is not only a high level strategic thinker always focused on achieving the bigger goal but also has the real world interpersonal skills to lead cross-department and cross-cultural teams to execute the plans in real life. Martyn’s team acted as a ‘hub’ to bring together and unite the marketing and commercial departments for the first time. He excelled during high-pressure launch timings across multiple time zones delivering many award winning ‘first’s’ to the company and his eye was always on achieving both the outcome and growing his team. Although very driven and determined to exceed the set outcomes, Martyn created an environment for others to grow and excel with open communication, transparency and humility. I look forward to working with Martyn again in the future.

      I really enjoyed working with Martyn Anstey at the Financial Times Group where I have been a journalist for the last 15 years. Martyn not only created an entirely new department but a shift in the company culture, where editorial, marketing and commercial worked even closer together. Martyn has both strong determination to achieve the overall outcomes but he also has high levels of empathy and listening skills which has served him well when dealing with other departments and cultures.

    • Binder Tohani - Commercialisation and Sales at CBRE

      I’ve known this genius gem of a guy for 20 years! I can say Martyn Anstey is the real deal. Focused, genuine, with an infectious motivation to excel in all fields. You will already know of his business success but what makes Martyn special to myself is his genuine care to make a real positive difference in peoples lives without the need for recognition. Over the decades, I have seen Martyn help people close to him who are experiencing real pain in their lives and to turn the situation around so they are stronger than before. He has trully been an inspiration to myself in all these years. I have also seen Martyn invest a significant portion of his life to help the underprivileged at home and overseas – I don’t believe there are too many countries he has not yet visited and impacted.
