I met Matt during one of the 'CV writing for TV' webinars at National Film and Television School at the start of 2022. The webinar was very informative and full of useful advice and practical tips for anyone starting or wanting to further their career in television.
Matt has extensive, up to date knowledge of the industry and is able to stir you in the right direction with invaluable advice regarding adjusting and improving your CV and covering letters to potential employers, which he continued to do during one-to-one consultation sessions I had with him following the webinar.
Thanks to his help and recommendation, I got my first Development Researcher job several months later, even before graduating from NFTS.
Matt has truly been a God send. I came across his LinkedIn profile while I was looking for coaches to connect with. I sent him a message and he responded very quickly and that's our my coaching and mentoring sessions started. He helped me to answer difficult questions about my career to date and future aspirations. Evaluating my wants and why! Once the background and inside work was done, we then went on to restructure my CV ensuring my achievements to date were highlighted. We came up with a three months plan on how to land my dream job. My sessions with Matt gave me renewed confidence in my capabilities. Matt then went on to assist with introducing me to a few of his contacts within the industry and also sending my CV out. Which resulted in an amazing job offer.
I would highly recommend Matt if you are ready to change your mindset and level up in your chosen area of work. He has a great way with people. Matt will push you to challenge yourself in order to be the BEST version of yourself.
Sales & Marketing Executive in Film & TV
I’m really delighted with the support that Matt has been able to offer me in the early stages of a new role. In January 2021 I was promoted to Detective Superintendent and realised that this would be a professional challenge. It was important that I could be the best version of myself which required some self-reflection. I found it particularly beneficial working with Matt to help with some self-assessment. Working together to consider the demands of the role from an alternative perspective with our contrasting backgrounds. The structured sessions allowed me to prioritise in a critical manner. It helped me plan my progress, track milestones, to achieve short term goals. I feel that good personal practice has been embedded which will help me deliver over the course of the year and beyond. Matt has an especially engaging, personal style which helped create an effective rapport. His professional experience makes him a credible coach. For those considering Matt as a possible coach I would sincerely endorse the choice. His energy and enthusiasm are infectious, and his support helped me crystallise focus during a period of adjustment in a new role. He clearly cares and this sincerity helps him deliver quality support in a meaningful way.

Matt has been a great support since being made redundant from the Film industry. His coaching and mentoring sessions have given me the confidence to push myself further when needed and he offers honest feedback which I find crucial. I would highly recommend his sessions for anyone that is on the lookout for a first rate coach and mentor.
