Outcomes, and how information can best be used to achieve the client's business goals, are what drives Mathew. He's a fixer who prides himself on simplifying the issues to get to the heart of a problem, then just as quickly recommends how best to solve it. He works from the belief that great information is not about collecting numbers and providing reams of charts: it's really all about engaging audiences. Mathew has worked with grocers, hotels, museums, industry associations, tourism attractions, not-for-profits and ad agencies. He's been called upon for strategic advice by clients in the energy industry, NGOs and governments. And he helped lead the re-development of one of Canada's most iconic brands, the Calgary Stampede. A convincing and engaging communicator, he always delivers objective answers to hard questions. No stalling. No BS. Just clear, simple answers and direction.
