Matt is a strong believer that business can be a force for good only if business-success can be equated to sustainability-success. To redefine success for an organization requires it to take a close look at its DNA. Matt is thrilled to help organizations look at their DNA, help them strategize for sustainability success and to support the building of the infrastructure to embed sustainability into organizational culture. This work has been conducted in a variety of forms with several organizations including: Genuine Health, Natural Factors, Vega, City of Calgary Office of Sustainability, Manitoba Harvest, Community Natural Foods and more.
Matt also has extensive experience facilitating large groups in participatory processes including the 2012 and 2013 BCorp Champions Retreat, Calgary Pathways to Sustainability, imagineCALGARY Enviro-action summit, Calgary Social Enterprise World Forum and more. He has attended two Art of Hosting trainings to further refine his practice.
Before joining The Natural Step Canada as an Associate, he completed a Master's of Science degree in Strategic Leadership towards Sustainability at the Blekinge Institute of Technology and a Bachelor of Commerce degree in General Management at the University of Victoria. He is also a Principal at Conscious Brands.
Matt has a small and young family that he loves spending time with. He also enjoys reading, riffing on the guitar and a variety of sports.
