‘Matt completely tailors our coaching sessions to my questions and my priorities. His method is very much 10% theory and 90% practical: it's mostly him listening and asking questions and me working through how to apply the concepts to the situations in my team and organisation. I have had other coaches but I've found this style of coaching much more suited to practical realities ’

Grant Kelly, Catering Services Manager, Anglicare
