Credentials

Matt Smith, Director

I’ve been a professional communicator for over twenty years both as an in-house practitioner (ANZ Bank) and as a consultant (Mercer Human Resource Consulting).

In that time I  have undertaken communication and marketing work for many organisations large and small -  multi-nationals through to small businesses across many industries, public and private sectors.

During this time, I have personally experienced many of the communication and leadership development challenges facing today’s leaders and line managers. Whether coaching or advising, my work is characterised by an open and honest approach and a quest for an authentic voice.

I have trained as an executive coach to Level 1 standard with the Institute of Executive Coaching in Melbourne – an International Coach Federation accredited Coach Training Program. I also hold a Master of Arts in Communication from Monash University, Melbourne.

In my free time I enjoy spending time with my wife and two great kids, writing and playing music, drinking fine tea and roaring around Melbourne on my scooter!
