Matt’s varied career has seen him work as a personal trainer and manager for a corporate gym, a physiotherapist for a football team and a health advisor for the NHS – just to name a few. His knowledge of health and wellbeing, as well as his professional qualifications, spans across a number of disciplines, which he now uses in his strategic role as director of wellbeing.
As part of his work with the Workplace Wellbeing Charter, Matt leads the wellbeing team and supports the strategic and business development side of the Charter and its parent company Health@Work. He has experience in both public and private sectors, with qualifications in mental health, stress, leadership, behaviour change, fitness, nutrition and alcohol. He has led a number of successful and productive teams throughout his career and is passionate about empowering other leaders to foster a positive organisational culture that values staff and encourages the principles of the Workplace Wellbeing Charter.
Matt never forgets his personal training days, and still enjoys keeping fit by going to the gym and playing football and golf. He is also kept very busy by his wife and three children, and in his spare time enjoys reading, cooking and playing the guitar. Amongst this, he has also found the time to become a published author, and wrote his first novel – an exciting crime thriller – in 2013.
