About this event

  • Do you want to start or grow a business that not only makes money, but is a force for positive change in the world?
  • Do you want to attract more customers, but you don’t know where to start?
  • Do you want to stand out from your competitors, but aren’t sure of why your business is different?
  • Are you growing tired of the ‘daily grind’ and want to find a source of motivation that will make you leap out of bed with excitement each day, knowing you are making a difference to the world?

You can achieve all of these things at once. Purpose and profit do not need to live separately.

In this free workshop, whether you already operate a business or just dream of starting one, I will guide you to build your own personalised, actionable framework for a business that will stand out, attract devoted customers, increase your revenue, and make the world a better place.

Purpose-driven, for-profit small businesses can truly make a better world, not just for the entrepreneur, but also for their communities, society as a whole, and the planet we live on.

ABOUT YOUR COACH

Hey, I'm Matt.

I've spent 15 years starting and running businesses, and I'm a coach, speaker, and author on how to start and grow purpose-driven small businesses that make the world a better place.

I started my first business in 2008 - hosting ski & snowboard holidays in a rickety old chalet in France - without any prior experience, education, or money, and against the odds built a multi-national extreme sport holiday company. During this time, I learned valuable lessons - often the hard way - of what to do, and not do, when running a small business.

In addition to becoming a serial entrepreneur and impact investor, I’ve studied Sustainable Business Strategy at Harvard, I am the author of 'Fire your Boss and Change the World', which is being published in 2023, and I have now devoted my life to mentoring and coaching other entrepreneurs on their start up journey.

I can't wait to share my experiences with you to help you build a better business and make your impact on the world.

TESTIMONIALS

“Having the expertise working in the industry was a great start but having business training with Matt put us years ahead of where we should have been!”

Katie P, Pom Pom Bagels, Lagos, Portugal.

“I started working with Matt hoping that I would get some advice on my website, business cards and what to call my Instagram page. Well, I got all that, and a lot more. I am now on a journey with Matt that I didn’t even know I wanted to be on, but I am so glad that I am.

Matt has opened my eyes to look at my 'why', and how I want to do my work, to give it meaning, longevity and sustainability. He has encouraged me to think long term and to think BIG…which is scary at times, but when he is also your biggest cheerleader you feel that fear and do it anyway.

Matt has changed my mindset from working as a yoga teacher and a ski teacher to working as a brand and a business owner.”

Sarah W, Maia Ski & Yoga, Zermatt, Switzerland.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT TYPE OF BUSINESSES / INDUSTRIES IS THIS WORKSHOP GOOD FOR?

WHAT SHOULD I BRING WITH ME?

Laptops / tablets are good, but large notepads and pens / pencils are better. The brain is activated in different ways when you write with a pen and paper, and we find that students creativity increases by note-taking and brainstorming in the old-fashioned way!
