"I have had the pleasure of working with Mathew for over 15 years on the complete range of international communications projects. The common denominators in his work are his dedication, dependability, strategic foresight and his ability to make complex projects come together on time. Plus, he is simply a great guy. I can highly recommend him."
"After having tried many agencies with mediocre results, Mathew was recommended to me to fix some communications issues. The first campaign he orchestrated for new membership acquisition delivered the best results we have ever achieved."
"Mathew and I have worked together for almost 20 years - he is a marketing man through and through. Mathew is an expert in handling large, complex and international accounts and is a fantastic team leader. He also has an uncanny ability of translating clients' briefings into a blueprint for communications that fully appeal to the target group's needs. Plus, he can provide an extended team of creatives to deliver the full agency package at a moment's notice – no strings attached. Great when teams are stretched to their limits anyway."
"Mathew is intelligent, likeable, trustworthy and a good friend. He genuinely cares about people and wouldn't ever let anybody down. If you are looking for solid, professional management support in Germany then get in touch with Mathew."
"Like Mathew, I have also started up several successful business enterprises. Getting a foothold in a mature and competitive market such as Germany can be daunting for the entrepreneur – particularly if he or she is not German. Mathew not only offers experience in setting up shop in Germany, he also provides excellent local market knowledge, speaks German perfectly, has a strong network of contacts and also speaks my language. I cannot imagine a better-suited support person than Mathew."
I am grateful and proud to have worked for some of the most exciting brands around. They have helped shape my understanding of what makes an enticing brand proposition and when advertising is not just appealing but more importantly persuasive.

Could you do with some external help handling your international projects – or leading a workshop in English or German? Does your start-up venture in Germany need a manager with deep local knowledge but who also speaks your language?
