Matt, originally from Sydney, Australia, was always inspired to build a life in Japan, especially after several awesome trips, and vividly seeing the next stage of his life in the bustling city of Tokyo, he took the plunge to see what opportunities he could uncover.
Fast forward 8+ years, and he is an accomplished trainer, facilitator, and coach, plus he also founded two companies. He has worked with top-tier firms including McKinsey, BCG, Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan. He has also partnered with several Venture Capital firms (Cyberagent Capital and Anri), Independent VCs and many startup founders to help them flourish in the business world.
In addition, Matt is a keen advocate of Japan’s startup ecosystem and broader business community. Currently, he runs motivational seminars/workshops across Tokyo for the startup community, including co-working spaces like Venture Cafe. He also presents at universities inspiring the next generation of ambitious founders. As part of the Business in Japan LinkedIn group, he regularly co-hosts regular Business in Japan Clubhouse discussions every Monday at 12 pm (Japan time).
