Life is about becoming better every day.
Through her entire career Martha has inspired and led teams to achieve and succeed beyond their expectations. One of her greatest achievements was representing Canada with her sailing team at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing.
“Did you win a medal?” is the question Martha hears repeatedly. When the torch was extinguished at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, the dream of competing in the Olympic Games was complete. Her team’s thirteenth-place finish did not merit “Gold Medal accolades”. However, it is in the words of the founder of the modern-day Olympics, Pierre de Coubertin, where the real Gold lies—“The important thing in life is not to triumph, but to compete.”
Martha is exuberant for inspiring and leading audiences to earnestly believe that they can achieve beyond their expectations. This drive she comes by naturally, for Martha is the daughter of a two-time Olympian father and a top-level golfer mother. The pursuit of excellence is in her blood! And helping others to do the same is a natural outcome. Using her tales to tell from this chance-of-a-lifetime experience, Martha entertains and inspires with a podium style that participants find warm and welcoming, as well as fun, relatable and, of course, motivational!
