Andrew Martin of Success Networking

"I like to think myself a serial entrepreneur, this passion began straight from school where I joined the family floristry business in North London. My journey has always been driven by a deep-seated passion for both business and creativity and I’m very proud of my achievement’s building up the brand and developing the team until I sold the business in 2016.

While my floral endeavours are now a thing of the past, I’ve embarked on a diverse career path, venturing into multiple income streams. Notably, I serve as the Editor of LivingLife Publications, which produces community magazines based in Hertfordshire. Moreover, I’ve gained recognition for my role as an advocate of Business Networking, culminating in the creation of Success Networking back in 2019. This venture aims to empower businesses by fostering growth through proactive networking.

In my view, an adept networker is essentially a “people connector,” and this principle underpins my daily efforts. I firmly believe that networking is a skill that can be nurtured and honed. Consequently, I spend a lot of time speaking on this subject and try to add as much value as I can with keynote talks at various events.

I look forward to connecting and engaging with you soon!"
