See what people had to say about Matthew, when he appeared at their corporate events:

"Matt has a track record of making a significant impact on other people’s performance. In the military, he used to teach, coach and mentor future fighter pilots helping them to improve their operational and leadership performance. A trained leadership coach, he now leverages his experience in the fast-jetcommunity to help others attain the same high level of performance. His client list is impressive and includes the Bank of England, Coca Cola, and the NHS as well as a range of other senior leaders in the public and private sectors.” - Roderick, Professional Certified Coach

“Matt has a fascinating and exciting career story to tell that is full of key learnings hugely relevant to business leaders. He’s able to deliver this in a simple yet highly engaging way whereby his audience can readily identify the learnings and how to use these in their own typically less life-threatening worlds.” - Academy of Chief Executives Chair

“I recently attended a Vistage event where Matt was the guest speaker. The subject, which all of us should be keen to understand more of and also ask ourselves the question, “how good do you want to be”? I believe many people do not ask this question of themselves because it can highlight how average perhaps we are in all walks of our life. Matt has been there and done it at the extreme level of Naval fast jet flying, and live MI5 operations. However, his humble, honest and authentic manner brought the subject to life by sharing his own personal experiences and life challenges. Putting in to practice what Matt discussed on the day will have, without a doubt, remarkable improvements in anyone’s life. If we are prepared to put in the hard work, commitment, discipline and self-belief, the results will begin to happen. I would have no hesitation in recommending Matt as a speaker, coach. Mentor or a retreat host.” - CEO Blue Mountain Group
