An extraordinary experience

Melissa Urquhart | Helping Businesses Grow

“It has been an extraordinary experience working with Matt. He has opened my eyes to a business and strategic planning framework, that is wholistic and taps into the hopes and dreams of the entrepreneur, as well as builds the foundations which provide a springboard for the business to successfully launch out into the world. Whilst I wasn’t the client, I was able to be part of the most progressive and inclusive body of work which takes strategic planning to a whole new level. Matt’s amazing knowledge which not only encompasses high level business strategy and growth but also the real growth of people as individuals is truly life changing. I have been honoured to have had the opportunity to experience it first-hand. Thanks Matt, your words of wisdom will be my ongoing inspiration.”

Melissa worked with Matt’s at different companies and as his client  2017.

Fast Growth, strategy, investment or exit.

Eddie Cetin
Managing Director APAC | Agentbox

“I knew Matt through one of my business colleagues, and met him at a conference in 2015. We started working together from 2017 and from the start he made an impact. His skills are numerous such as in strategy, negotiation and business scaling. Personally he became a close friend and trusted advisor fast, providing an invaluable check and balance which I believe is essential for any CEO.  

His role and experience with us ranged from winning new business, strategy through to international investor negotiations, as well being a friend and a coach / mentor.  
Given his clear results and proven relationship with me I would have no hesitation in recommending him to any company looking for fast growth, strategy, investment or exit. Or if you just need a coach.

Eddie was Matt’s client from 2017

I am impressed

Yumi Milan
Managing Director | Board Director | International Strategist

“I met Matt at a networking event some years ago. In 2017 he was engaged by a prospect of ours, and in seeing the true potential opportunity, he helped negotiate our engagement. Thereafter he skilfully managed client negotiations and expectations, whilst working closely with our team to refine the report to allow it to become a core negotiation tool. This ultimately contributed to an outstanding result for the client 4 months later.  

 
I am impressed with Matt’s range of skills and ability to take the heat out of difficult situations and would have no hesitation in recommending him to any business that needs a seasoned trusted advisor or is going through rapid growth, exit or valuation.”

Yumi worked with Matt in different groups 2017 – 2019.

My highest recommendations

Cassandra Sasso
Wander Retreats Founding CEO

“Matt has my highest recommendations to anyone who owns their own business… no matter what stage you are on your journey.  

 
We met 6 months ago when our company was little more than an idea. Since then he has given us invaluable and clear advice on how we can strengthen our foundations and has challenged us raise the bar in our vision and execution.  
 
Above this, and more importantly, Matt listens and is interested to learn about us and our story. He is an absolute pleasure to work with, and someone I am now proud to call a friend..”

My dog and world peace

This morning I took our dog Bella for a walk and thought I would drop into our local cafe for breakfast. I like to have some time alone to relax before the world truly wakes on a Monday, sometimes a Sunday, and plan my helicopter view of my week. I find this very satisfying and […]
