WHo is MATTHEW
Matthew has been working in the field of personal and organisation change for the thick end of 30 years; his work is focused on enabling leaders, teams and organisations to change – improving and transforming their performance. Before starting his own business in 2007, he spent nine years working as a Senior Manager at KPMG, one of the Big 4 global accounting and consulting firms.
Matthew has worked with a wide range of leaders and professionals and has a particular expertise in enabling them to convert change efforts into tangible results; for example, he spent two of his last four years at KPMG leading an organisation wide change programme (Impact to Win!) with the top two tiers of leaders in KPMG Corporate Finance. This focused on breaking through to new levels of personal and organisational performance. The Board attributed part of the 29% growth in income to the work of this programme. During the programme engagements with fees in excess of £750k increased from four to 17!
Matthew has designed and led countless leadership and personal skills programmes, ranging from as little as one-hour duration, up to full-on twelve-month integrated transformation programmes. He has worked extensively in both a face to face and virtual environment. He began working with post-conventional approaches to leading change in 2005 when he completed a three-year Master’s degree in Change Agent Skills & Strategies – a highly practical programme focusing on advanced coaching and facilitation skills and leading change within organisations.
Matthew has experience in a wide range of sectors. Here is a sample of some of the clients he has worked with:
- KPMG (13 yrs)
- BP (11 yrs)
- IMI (5 yrs)
- Philip Morris (4 yrs)
