« 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. »

The power of public speaking, pitching and rhetoric for professional and personal growth.

Methodology

I believe that the knowledge I have can be adapted to work with all types of people. From the boardroom to the classroom I can help you understand how the person you are talking to feels and how to integrate narratives and push towards objectives.

Through relaxed conversations and a goal-driven approach to making progress, I will help you to learn the difference between becoming nervous, clammy, ineffective and getting funding for your latest proposition and killing it during your best man/woman's speech.

Most hate speaking in public and I have the knowledge and the skills to help you overcome those pesky percentages. I can teach you first hand how to pitch for greater investment, how to speech in front of groups and one to ones.

Background

After founding several small companies and growing them to over £100,000 in revenue year one, over 5 years experience working in brand development, I have gained the inside knowledge of what it takes to speak publically, converse on a board of directors and pitch for investment.

I have worked as a freelance sports journalist and have featured on several podcasts, reporting on live events in audio, video and written form. This has helped grow my understanding of a compelling creating a story, exploring ideas both written and spoken and can help you understand the benefits of body language and delivery.

As co-founder of fashion brands, I successfully collaborated on marketing campaigns with the likes of ASOS & Depop. I know how to persuade and target audiences into growing your following and expanding sales.

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. Working alongside an incredible team writing brand guidelines, briefs and more.

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.
