"Professor Elliott is an extraordinary communicator, in one-to-one settings and also on the large stage. There are a few things that makes Martin really standout. First, his total command of the clinical subject matter.... Martin is able to make the details of surgery both accessible to non-clinicians and compelling to fellow practitioners at the same time. Second, Martin's willingness to go way outside the boundaries of a CT surgeon and a medical director... I have seen Martin present convincingly on subjects as wide ranging as health economics, medico-legal and regulatory dispute, Health transformation and human factors, Health technology and med-tech, and health ethics.
Lastly, Martin is willing to confront industry taboos head on and frequently displays daring, combined with wit, on sensitive subjects such as negligence and blame, the boundaries of ethics, the psychology of surgeons and the fears of patients and their parents.
This makes Martin's message fresh, compelling and authentic, and takes listeners far beyond what they might be expecting to hear from a heart surgeon".

“All the feedback I got on the evening was very positive and achieved what I wanted. I think you could tell from the atmosphere that you had everyone captured.”

Keynote Address for DS Smith Ltd, June 2016
"We were all very inspired and interested by his presentation.
Most of us who’ve grown-up in F1 recognise attributes in our industry that foster achievement and performance however it’s so interesting to learn of a real-life example showing how cross-discipline information exchange can benefit all .
The world needs more of this kind of thinking,.... Brexit and other global events wouldn’t cloud our lives if only this could happen sooner than later."
‘Absolutely fascinating and Martin was an excellent speaker.’
‘Brilliant lecture! Thank you very much!’
