About Tandem Comms

We are a family business.

Martin Evans

Martin Evans is Director/Owner of TandemComms and lead for the company.  He has nearly 40 years of experience in leadership, management and specialist communications, across the public and private sector.  He has worked at board to the shop floor, on influence skills, team development, crisis communications and campaigns.  He was born to the NHS but trained in the military (Royal Air Force), returning to the NHS as a comms director and then setting up the highly successful TandemComms in 2018


He is passionate about many things from adventure, canoeing, cycling, travel, music, and supporting a Kenyan charity but he is as enthusiastic about developing others to reach their potential……‘that’s what lights my fire’, he says.

TandemComms’s lead is Martin Evans but we make full use of a network of affiliates and contacts from copywriters, designers, storytellers, mentors, trainers and more.

We know a person who can…
Here are the other 2 key personalities in this family business:

Sarah Evans

Sarah Evans is Co-Director – an artist who has the most imaginative brain.  Her artistic business is www.silknstiff.co.uk running workshops, teaching sessions, community projects as well as commissions. She also has a practical side, being a proud daughter of a master carpenter.  Sarah provides creative guidance to TandemComms.


We do have a tandem, hence the company name. Sarah would say that she’s in charge when we are pedalling, as she controls the map and Martin’s ear lobes.


Jake Evans

Jake is a professional storyteller who works across the UK and occasionally overseas.  He is also a passionate conservationist and is a representative for the ORCA charity, regularly giving lectures on cruises and ferries where ORCA is involved. He works with audiences as diverse as dementia groups, national trust (as storyteller in residence), young people from 3-18, disability groups, WIs, festivals and schools.  This is not just as a storyteller but also in delivering workshops on this oldest of art forms.  He often works with TandemComms in helping people understand the key aspects of storytelling and grabbing attention in presentations

TandemComms has a network of mafia like proportions, to provide other specialist related services.  If we cant do it no doubt we will know someone who can.

Just ask.
