Coaching -



“In practising for a demanding Director promotion panel, Matthew was superb at giving me tough feedback - he didn't duck the difficult things that need to be said. He didn't just challenge me though, he also helped me to refine my presentation and approach and came up with a number of really good ideas. He encouraged me to take some considered risks that spiced up my presentation. The net effect was that I grew in confidence and when it came to the crunch, I blew the panel's socks off!"

Facilitating -


“Matt was great at facilitating sessions for our most senior people. The content was sensitive and Matt’s facilitation was characterised by a good balance of support and challenge.  He helped create a safe, open environmentwhich enabled people to say what they were really thinking and feeling, and led to some really honest conversations."
Sarah Bond, UK Head of Diversity for a Global Professional Services Firm

“Our learning team was part of a twelve month development programme for our most senior people and met for two hours each month. Matthew led it and enabled five senior people to talk openly about the challenges and opportunities they were facing in their personal and professional lives. I found it to be a rewarding and powerful experience - really valuable - which is the only reason why five senior and very busy people invested that much time in it - we still meet 18 months after the programme has finished."
Tom Franks, UK Chief Operating Officer for a Global Professional Services Firm

"Trying to get a group of senior, experienced and successful people to consider new ways of doing things is always a challenge. Matthew did this with skill and style and was effective at getting people to accept that they might need to change the way they operated along with some practical approaches indicating how they might do that. Some of these changes contributed to people winning work that they would not have otherwise won - very effective."
Tom Franks, UK Chief Operating Officer for a Global Professional Services Firm


Organisational Change -


"Matthew led this organisation change programme by understanding what the business needed to transform its performance, designing a programme that met those needs and showing great resilience in pushing it through. He took some substantial but considered risks and to achieve results that were genuinely transformational. Both commercially and for our senior people it has been a real success."
Tom Franks, UK Chief Operating Officer for a Global Professional Services Firm

"Over the five years I have seen him in action, whilst employed by us, Matthew has led a number of projects that have materially improved the way our business operates"
Simon Collins, UK Chief Executive Officer for a Global Professional Services Firm

"In response to the biggest strategic issue facing our business, Matthew, whilst employed by us, initiated a change programme, Impact to Win, which tackled the people component of the challenge. The solution was bold, brave and far reaching - it had a transformational impact on our business"
Simon Collins, UK Chief Executive Officer for a Global Professional Services Firm
