Mat makes no apologies for his maverick predisposition because the inherent promise baked into prioritisation of the ‘status quo’ in most businesses is a flawed premise.
After more than two decades of traversing the globe in senior management roles Mat realised that conforming to tradition and not rocking the boat leads only to a life of mediocrity. His mission is instead to liberate all business owners and managers; to turn them into business model mavericks.
Ask yourself this. Do you want to disrupt, or to be disrupted? In the end, it’s your choice…
It all started during Mat’s corporate career where he tired of seeing so many managers, consultants and business owners struggling to reinvent their businesses or industries. Together with Uli Grothe, he created the provocative and progressive methodology, ‘Rocking the Ship’. Contrary to conventional business wisdom, managers learn how to create bold new business models by virtually and playfully attacking their own businesses, to create their Nightmare Competitors.
When he’s not working Mat can be found on the trails exploring his own limits as an accomplished endurance athlete and ambassador for More Than Sport: a global movement of athletes who transform lives around the world through amazing products, service trips, and fundraising opportunities to support clean water, food, medical care, education, and housing for those in need.
Mat lives in Jervis Bay, Australia, with his wife, Neridah and their small army of pets.
