MATT CHURCH

Thought Leader

Matt Church is committed to helping people prepare for tomorrow by taking action today. His philosophy can be summed up in one word NEXT! What is the best next thing you can do to future proof your business or career? He is a strategic thinker obsessed with the idea of leverage. While many are painting a scary view of the future he sees one full of potential. Whether it’s what he writes, his direct advice to thought leaders or his conference presentations delivered to audiences around the world, Matt communicates with deep focus, commercial clarity and a razor sharp wit on three things: removing fear and replacing it with confidence, removing confusion and replacing with certainty and mobilising people in pursuit of a better future.

In 2001 Matt founded Thought Leaders™ once again giving back and building on the idea that great leaders create great leaders. Realising he could only make a difference to the people he met he started to focus on developing Thought Leaders who themselves would go on to capture, package and deliver what they know so that they could go on and make a difference. It’s this ripple effect that sits as the central metaphor behind Matt’s life and the thought leaders logo. Once again focusing on the commercial value exchange he helps consultants get their value proposition right and in 2012 he and his business partner Peter Cook created a business school that realised the ideal of being inspired by the company you keep. The Thought Leaders tribe is an exceptional group of people, last year alone 17 of the 19 non fiction business books published by Wiley in Australia were thought leaders.
