Matt imparts his knowledge and experience, demonstrating who the Real Heroes of innovation are. He believes that the hard working men and women who are trying to make changes in established organisations have a harder job in many ways than an entrepreneur.  Matt believes that the key challenges facing organisations are more human than strategic. They involve listening, experimenting and packaging new ideas, with no fear of a corporate backlash.

Matt’s book, The Science of Serendipity is a culmination of Matt’s 20 year innovative corporate career.

Matt has seen first-hand and understands how companies can be reborn. His wealth of experience is invaluable and he accesses it to give practical advice on how you can place humans, with all of their fears and foibles, at the heart of commercial success.

In addition to his extensive corporate work, Matt has helped Gordon Ramsey work with prisoners to get their lives back on track; has worked with Fight For Peace, a Brazilian organisation that raises street kids through boxing, and with PepsiCo to consider how their world would look if they stopped transporting so much sugar and water.

Matt has advised the UK government on engagement in the workplace, he is a University guest lecturer and blogs for Wired.com and the Huffington Post.
