Matthew Pollard is a gifted communicator and educator. He has an unrivalled ability to translate new ideas from the field of high performance that make an immediate difference to how people go about running their business and looking after their own individual performance. Matthew has integrity and is trusted by those he speaks to because he starts with a simple premise: “If I can make this work for me, then I know it works. If this makes sense to me, then I can help it work for others.” People appreciate Matthew’s innate empathy, respect and regard – he is a great listener. However, and this is what has most impressed me about Matthew’s mindset, he constantly challenges what others take for granted. With me, he raises the challenging and difficult questions, and has forced me to justify my answers – rather than merely accept what I have to say because I am “the expert”. He probes and weaves seeing where ideas apply, where they don’t and which ones make the difference. Matthew displays an advanced capacity to coach as well as to present highly effective and innovative workshops designed to enhance work practices. He is an expert in what he does!
Matthew's Speaking Events
Matthew was one of our mentors at Google Startup Weekend 2015. Although our conversations were brief, I felt smarter every time he spoke. His ability to clearly articulate our business and what we were offering was spot on. We followed his pitch suggestions to the T and ended up winning Google's Startup Weekend in Austin, 2015. No question, the win was due to his coaching. I look forward to working with Matthew as we turn this startup into a reality.
I don't write many testimonials unless I've been 'wowed'. I live in a high value world where promises are easily made - and broken. Where expectations are set - and never met. I consider myself a positive-minded, yet sometimes cautious professional who has sometimes felt I've seen it all.
Expectations are such in our world today that when someone under promises, then over provides - it's magical, because it's so infrequent, so unique - but SO APPRECIATED. That describes Matthew Pol...
