In one widely reported experiment he attempted to conduct a game of chess by telepathy with a student in Australia. He began to give talks on psychic-related topics, at first in college and later at public venues, in the course of which he carried out psychic tests and experiments with the help of volunteers from the audience. He also began to make predictions on world events, which were published in Irish newspapers, particularly at the beginning of each year.

The Centre, which was essentially a permanent exhibition of the psychic arts, offering lectures, workshops and demonstrations in a range of psychic and occult subjects, was the subject of numerous radio and television programmes and newspaper and magazine articles in the UK and around the world. Zak Martin established his own consultancy in a private suite of the hotel. He made a number of TV appearances and was a regular guest on LBC Radio. He was also featured in numerous newspaper and magazine articles, including a series of articles exploring the paranormal in the Daily Mirror titled The Unknown Factor, with author and broadcaster Brian Inglis. He opened his Natural Health Clinic at nearby York Street in 1985.
