“He gets it. Every time. His enthusiasm is infectious, his content and case studies are both credible and authentic. He cares as much about what happens afterwards as he does during the assignment. A partner, not just a keynote speaker for hire.”

Steve Allen, Vice President Global Payments, Barclays Plc


Having grown up on a farm, Matt used the common sense grounding of a rural upbringing to propel a corporate career that saw him become a main board director of a $500M telecoms company by the age of 28 before joining Barclays Bank as one of their youngest senior executives at just 31.

Moving on

Despite a successful corporate career, in 2003 Matt decided to strike out on his own and has since built a multi-million dollar global consultancy called Positive Momentum and also travels the world speaking at conferences and events engaging audiences with his high energy, entertaining and no nonsense style. He uses his practical and real-world experience of corporate life at all levels to connect, inspire, motivate and educate.

Real experience, plain speaking

With over 12 years of professional speaking and compéreing experience with more than 250,000 delegates from all over the world, and with some of the world’s best known brands that book him again and again, you can be assured that by hiring Matt you are in very good company.
