'The session with What If Innovation was a great success, with over 50 delegates from the UK business turning up! Matt had a really refreshing way to share with us his experience, using real life examples to demonstrate that great ideas can come together by trying and taking some risks, rather than always planning and working to process.'
Brand Building Excellence Manager
"The lunchtime lecture from Matt Kingdon was fascinating. To hear how Matt set up and grew one of London's most innovative and breakthrough creative agencies was well worth the investment of an hour. I took a lot away from the session, in terms of the way Matt thinks differently, but also how he overcome the challenges along the path and ultimately what lessons he has learnt.

Financial Services Conference
‘We really appreciated Matt's support to a number of events, in particular his fresh perspective and his capability to connect and be relevant to very different audiences.
He truly has the customer at the heart of what he does and has a unique capability of capturing key moments/ views/ data/ ideas that ‘stick’ and make it easy to understand what needs to be done.
Whenever we engage with Matt, we are sure we would walk away somehow with true clarity about one specific change we need to bring in the organisation as quickly as possible – it’s the mix of strength of insights, relevance, easy to ‘feel’ and get what needs to be done that makes Matt’s contributions unique and remarkable’
