“Martin Buckland dazzled our audience of communicators at a meeting of the IABC / Toronto Professional Independent Communicators when he spoke on the topic of networking. He is a recognized expert in the topic, and practices it in his daily business as well. Whenever someone asks me for advice about resumes, careers, networking, or job searching, I always refer them to Martin.”

“Covering the heart of the Southern Ontario automotive region, many SAE Central Ontario section members were impacted by the Automotive recession of 2008 -09. To help SAE members affected by downsizing and career transition, the Central Ontario Section invited Martin Buckland to speak at their Career Transition Workshop where Martin provided his in-depth expertise to SAE members seeking to find new career opportunities. Martin provided valuable insights into effective resume writing, creating an on-line presence for increased visibility, and interviewing techniques. The career transition workshop was one of SAE Central Ontario Section’s most successful events with many members remaining long after the workshop’s conclusion to have their resume reviewed by Martin. SAE Central Ontario highly recommends Martin as speaker at any career related event.”

“In May of 2011, Martin Buckland spoke at the quarterly dinner meeting of CMA Ontario, Georgian Bay District. This was a much anticipated, second presentation by this popular speaker. His topic, The Skills of Personal Branding, left a thought provoking message in the minds of the attendees. The issues, the challenges, the potential solutions, the solutions…all focused on ensuring your brand is solid and presents well to those around you.
Our after meeting survey ranked Martin very high through at least five categories. He is well respected and a knowledgeable speaker on many topics surrounding employment and identifying yourself through written word, personal presentation and communication. ‘Getting it right the first time.’
We hope to have Martin return again in 2013 for another ‘thought provoking’ presentation.”
– Colin McLarty, CMA, Vice Chair, CMA Ontario, Georgian Bay District
“I have known Martin Buckland for close to 10 years and attended quite a few of his presentations, mostly around transition planning, networking and how to create outstanding career documents, such as resumes.
Martin’s engaging style to present the information combined with his extensive theoretical and hands-on practical knowledge makes it very interesting to participate in his presentations. He is one of the few presenters who manages to attach his audience to the subject and handles even dry topics through active interaction with his audience in a remarkable way.
Martin conveys his knowledge to the audience in a very effective and appealing way and I have been learning through his presentations very valuable contents. If you have a chance, do listen to one of his presentations.”
– Dr. Juergen Boenisch, Ph.D., Dipl.-Eng, CMC, CSCM
“Your presentation on resumes was extremely well received. Members liked the new format you presented for the combined resume. They also liked and, from what I observed, were somewhat shocked at some of the current trends you were able to present. As always, the quality of your presentation and the information you provide were appreciated.”
– Frances McKenzie, Speakers Coordinator, HAPPEN (Burlington, Ontario)
“I was fortunate to meet Martin at a recent HAPPEN meeting in Burlington. He was the keynote speaker.
