Nando Cabán Méndez

Founder & CEO, Ally Digital

Matthew’s presentation at the Freelance Conference helped Nando realize that he needed to be more selective in the clients he appealed to. Though many service professionals believe they need to speak to as broad an audience as possible, the truth is that working with your ideal, niche customers is one of the keys to rapid growth. Once Matt helped him adjust his focus and pricing packages, Nando landed his ideal client within one week.

Director of Technology, 2 Market Services

In just 30 minutes, Matt showed him how to identify and explain the value he provides to customers.

I found this program to be incredibly helpful. I wish that I had gone through this program when I was a new business owner, so that I could have made the last few years of my life more productive, and I strongly urge any new business owner to take the time to do so. For anyone who doesn’t feel like they have the time to do this program, ask yourself if you have the time not to. For me, several hours (plus the additional time I spent in coaching with Matthew) could have saved me several years.

Matthew’s advice and support has been critical in securing my place in the Los Angeles market as a writer, producer, and editor, working on some of Fall’s biggest launches, and marketing campaigns including spots for ABC, CBS, Disney, CW, G4, Esquire Network, TruTV, Soap Net, & FX, and campaigns for the features 21 and Over, 2 Guns, and This is the End. After 20 years of experience working with many of the major Australian television networks as a writer, editor and producer I decided to take my career to the next level by heading to Los Angeles. Soon after arriving, I realised getting into the Los Angeles market was a much harder endeavour than I first thought. In Australia I had grown relationships and status over many years, with many of the major television stations, and in Los Angeles I had to start again. Matthew’s help has been amazing! He talked me through keeping a clear mind when approaching prospective clients; managing my time to prioritize and get the money-generating tasks done each week; provided ways of staying motivated to call what seemed to be an endless number of people each day; and gave me invaluable advice when negotiating complex engagement contracts. Matthew is the essential ingredient to any business that has a great functional skill but lacks the sales, marketing and time management strategies to get the world to know it.

Matt is a serious player in the business space as well as a risk taker with a talent for seeing the big picture. His last ten years have been nothing short of spectacular with one success after another, showcasing his great talent and versatility in sales and marketing. Matt embodies the quintessential modern day business guru with a tremendous blend of theoretical and practical know how. I have known and worked with him over several years in various projects and in each case have seen firsthand how impactful he is in everything he does and how positive the outcomes from those efforts are for his customers. A gifted speaker and natural motivator, he will provide a stunning focal point to any business meeting or conference with his inimitable style of presentation.

It was great to have a sales and marketing expert, such as yourself, discuss with us the topic of “if sales can be learned.” I also want to show my appreciation for giving out so much critical advice on the importance of learning to sell through steps and how to utilize sales scripting. I enjoyed having you on my show and would love to invite you back again. Your insights on sales and sales management were spot on.

Matt has already demonstrated his ability to recognize and make the most of business opportunities. Initially he was my student on an MBA program and he was thirsty for new ideas and creative about applying them. He also facilitated others’ understanding in the class. Later Matt was a mentor and adviser, helping me to see my consulting business differently. He has boundless energy and an enviable ability to focus on getting results.

Meredith Rogers,
Owner, Partnership Solutions Pty Ltd

 

Matthew has unlimited energy, and it is all focused. His ability to understand business opportunities and make them happen is more than just impressive, it is amazing!

Don Moore,

Matthew is a driven individual. His ability to engage clients and staff to take them to the next level is inspiring and shows genuine care. He has a unique ability to take any product or service provided by a business, find a prosperous new niche for it, and then differentiate it to propel the business into rapid growth. More amazingly, he seems to be able to scale a business to handle this growth seamlessly.

Participants, many seasoned business people that engaged in marketing everyday, were amazed that one person could provide so much content in such a short time.

It is my view that Matthew will make a major success of any business that he turns his hand to.

James Woods,
Managing Director, eCollect

 

I was so surprised at his quick grasp of my business and direct helpful advice that I could use straight away.

Peter Radcliffe,
Founder, Skillful Mind

 

When we met Matthew we were a couple very hard to convince, because we thought we knew it all and we had no time for this type of thing. But we have realised that by undertaking this course it’s opened our doors and our business has improved. We don’t know how to thank him enough.

Adriana Bastianelli,
Director, Australian Commercial Refrigeration

 

The training, advice and assistance provided has been invaluable to my business and has definitely produced some amazing changes, developments, and results both personally and in my business practices.

Matthew is a very enthusiastic trainer, speaker and sales consultant. He has opened the door for me to take on additional training and now I am a qualified Career Development Practitioner with the appetite to take on a degree in Counselling which I will complete next year.

Teresa Brandau-Stranks,
Executive Officer/CPD Manager, Australian & New Zealand College of Anaesthetists

 

When I started my own business, I attended a training course where Matthew was the course instructor. In a few short days, Matthew showed me how to create packages to entice new customers, and as a result I got a sale the next day from a customer I would have normally viewed as a waste of time. I would highly recommend Mathew to anyone looking to improve their sales know how in a business environment.

Steve Brendish,
Creative Director, 2 Dam Creative

 

Matthew is a highly driven and focused individual. He has many strengths when it comes to building successful business strategies from the ground up. I was lucky enough to work with him while he took one of these ventures, Choice Mobiles, from a small telecommunications outfit, to a genuine b2b competitor to the likes of Telstra and Optus. Matthew is an old hand when it comes to entrepreneurial experience, while paired with a young mind holding what seems limitless fresh and innovative ideas.

Brent Sweerts,
Resource Planning Analyst, Mercer

 

Matthew is an inspired and driven thought leader. His personable yet determined approach to getting results is what makes Matthew stand out amongst his peers. Anyone would be lucky to work with him.

Ruth Posterino,
Founder and Director, ManifestUrLife

 

I have known Matt for a fair few years, he has tremendous energy, is always enthusiastic and has some new and innovative ideas that I believe will serve anyone that works with him well. Matt is highly approachable and a great leader. Matt was one of my top re sellers and always overachieved sales targets.If you ever need someone to deliver under pressure, no slip-ups, just results, Matt is your man! He is great in dealing with difficult situations and a fantastic problem solver. I have no hesitation in recommending Matt.
