I believe that the knowledge I have can be adapted to work with all stages of building your business.

After founding several small companies and growing them to over £100,000 in revenue year one, over 5 years experience working in fashion brand development, I have gained the inside knowledge of what it takes to work on several key tasks at once, how to adapt and change with the needs of each role, I understand my strengths and weaknesses and I can show you how to aswell.
I have guided a small team of illustrators to take the leap into leaving their sedentary office job and get out into the world following their dreams and making a living doing so.
Since moving to Bristol I have worked with a tech-startup in the Engine shed developing AI solutions that aim to make the world just a little bit better.

My first real interaction with the design world. A seriously invigorating and eye-opening journey through entry-level office work, development of a project and the relationship built between a client and a design studio.
Matthew recently guided me successfully to a transition from a job I had been at for over a decade, comfortably and quickly resolving my career woes with strong advice and a calm and easy-going attitude. He set lessons plans which helped me to take the information with me and work more on certain objectives away from his comfortable house where we met a few times a week. He is a fantastic conversationalist and his wicked sense of humour helped me through what could have been a very stressful and problematic stage in my life. Thanks to Matt, it wasn't.
I’ve worked alongside Matt on a huge variety of different projects. He has helped to guide me through several transitional periods in my career with his deep understanding of social media platforms, business development and his experience in founding start-ups. With a great sense of humour Matthew’s session blow by but not without learning something or achieving that lessons objective. A great guy and an even better tutor.
Matt is part of my freelance team. I have hired him on several occasions and would not hesitate to recommend him. His main areas of expertise are Social Media Management, Business Growth advice and Web Design, though he is capable of much more. Matt is highly knowledgeable, intelligent, talented, versatile, reliable and a pleasure to work with.
