Martin came across Tempus Novo through a close friend and work colleague, Chris Hudson, founder of Hub Marketing and a TN Ambassador. Trained as a graphic designer, Martin has worked in various creative guises over the years from designing Christmas cards (in June!) to being a Creative Director and running his own design agency in Soho, London. Having worked on global corporate accounts in TV, print and digital he’s very passionate about Tempus Novo and it’s achievements and aspirations.
“Working with a truly passionate team that produces "real life" results that, unlike most companies’ advertising ‘promises’, do actually dramatically change lives. This is evident when you meet the Tempus Novo Graduates as their gratitude and pride is real. The employers also get enormous benefits in terms of skill sets, attitude and enthusiasm that the TN Graduates offer having been through the TN programme. Society benefits also both financially and ethically so it’s a WIN WIN WIN situation.
It's taken Steve and Val years of experience, determination and honest mistakes to come up with a formula that works to solve what they witnessed first hand was a serious problem that needed sorting.
The ex-offenders that have successfully become TN Graduates have adopted a positive attitude and hard working ethic, which is inspiring and humbling in equal measures. The marketing task is to change societies perception of ex-offenders and humanise them, which, when you meet the TN team and their Graduates, it does just that.”
