Hello. I'm Matt.
I started a clothing brand and retail shop called PROVIDE in 2012.
Sometimes I help other people to start their own businesses, and every now and then I get asked to speak for groups of people.
I've got a degree from London College of Fashion knocking about somewhere but it'd probably take me a while to dig out the certificate.
If you'd like me to speak at your event, lead a workshop or if you'd like a one-to-one consultation about all things branding, please get in touch here.
Here's my brand: PROVIDE

Some feedback from people I've worked with:
"I worked alongside Matt to deliver a session at this
year's Spring Fair. Matt delivered practical but creative advice on how to
be innovative on the High Street, and delivered a successful session that
many retailers enjoyed. His experience was varied and was delivered in a
confident manner; many retailers thought his advice was practical and found
him extremely approachable in the follow up."
Camela Cuison, Content Producer, Spring Fair 2014
"A really inspiring seminar this afternoon at Spring Fair - thanks" Grwp Retail Academy
"I've always found Matt's got something to say. But wise way beyond his years, he was able to organise and execute his thoughts relevant to the wider context of our Small Talk event.
Given the night was all about getting other people talking, Matt succeeded in being able to leave everyone with a tangible takeaway which has regularly been a point of reference
for our attendees, the last one I heard just 2 weeks ago." Gavin Auty, Organiser, Small Talk
"Matt has worked with staff and students at Hamstead Hall Academy since November 2012. He has delivered invaluable talks to both GCSE and A level
Business groups on what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur in a dynamic and competitive marketplace.
The students found his sessions informative, stimulating and engaging. Indeed, they were more than simply talks as Matt was able to interact effectively with the students showing an
amazing energy and presence which our teaching staff were, quite simply, in awe of. Matt was also kind enough to come into the Academy to do some follow-up
work with students in smaller groups and a one-to-one basis; this proved invaluable support for a number of students who needed to 'live and breathe a real business'
rather than simply learn from traditional teaching methods. The Faculty are delighted to endorse Matt as a valuable speaker who connects well with learners, addressing
their needs with a balance of intellect and passion." James Byng, Specialist Leader of Education, Hamstead Hall Academy
