Matt is an accomplished business professional with a commerce degree and a background in management consulting and project management. He has over 25 years experience in the IT industry, including 12 years selling technology based business solutions in complex and highly competitive engagements, reinforced by industry leading sales training activity.
Matt has worked with some of the world’s leading software companies, including Mincom, Technology One and Systems Union, and is used to leading teams of professionals in high-value, long-term business development and solution implementation projects. His consulting skills were established while working in the elite Management Consulting division of Touche Ross in the early 1980’s.
He is also a passionate student of the human condition, having studied and tutored philosophy and its practical application for over 20 years. Matt completed a post graduate Certificate in Dispute Resolution, culminating in his accreditation as a Mediator with the Institute of Arbitrators and Mediators in Australia. The confluence of these commercial and philosophic endeavours generated a strong interest in the role of intrinsic motivation and the impact of conflict in both team and individual performance.
Organisations that rely primarily on external means of motivating employees are missing a significant opportunity. Intrinsic motivation is far more sustainable, can be achieved at a lower cost, and improves both the welfare and the performance of the organisation’s most valuable assets. Matt helps individuals increase their level of self-awareness and discover a true sense of purpose, identifying motivational goals that incorporate successful performance in business and the workplace.
Matt is a skilled and thoughtful mentor with a holistic approach, and his style is professional and practical. Well grounded in the realities of the commercial environment, he is results focused and committed to challenging individuals to examine their own paradigms and embrace change in a very practical way. Assisting individuals to grow in self awareness and understanding is the surest way to improve their performance. The positive impact on organisational, team and customer relationships is dramatic when confident self-aware individuals understand how to harness their full potential.
