who feel out of
their comfort zone
Are you struggling with...
A drop in confidence
Struggling with imposter syndrome
Not living up to your potential
The transition to leadership
Overwhelm and loss of focus
Hey! I'm Mat.
I started my career as a graduate software engineer. I took opportunities as they arose, from leading teams to being a CTO. I've experienced first hand being successful, and having my ego massaged, but at various points in my career I've also felt wholly out of my depth. It's not that I wasn't capable, just that it was sometimes a bit scary and i didn't always have the support around to help grow into the role.
I’ve helped many new leaders adjust and develop the confidence to build their own successful leadership style. I provide support and growth, minimising the fear, and enhancing their problem solving skills and innate creativity.
Over the last decade I've helped many people grow their confidence and skills to become outstanding leaders.

"Mat helped me navigate huge growth and change in my successful business. As a founder, he helped me to scale myself, delegate effectively, improve challenging relationships, and support my employees to feel empowered and collaborate. He gave me lots of space to think, and have the confidence to act on my creative ideas."

Mat's was absolutely phenomenal for me personally as he supported me in my first role in leadership.
I can't begin to explain the impact that Mat has played on my outlook and performance in my role as a leader.
He's been pivotal in developing my understanding and appreciation for agile methodologies and general coaching skills.

Taking on a new role often involves an uncomfortable (yet rewarding) learning curve. You can go from being primarily technical, moving towards leadership and strategy. Stepping away from 'hands-on' technical work can make you feel out of touch and unable to contribute value in the same way as before. You can feel vulnerable.
I believe technical leaders have an amazing capacity for creative leadership. So many of the people and problem-solving skills are transferrable. It is just a lot easier to do with a little support and guidance as you change direction. I’ve helped many new leaders adjust and develop the confidence to build their own successful leadership style.
