Paul Matthews - People Alchemy
Paul’s corporate career culminated in a role as Customer Services Director for a NASDAQ quoted multinational IT company. He then started his own consultancy in 1999 specialising in developing managers in a way that has a direct impact on performance and results. He now speaks regularly at conferences on performance, capability, learning and related subjects. He has written two books, “Informal Learning at Work” and “Capability at Work”, and developed learning and support software which is now used widely in both the public and private sectors including universities.
Some say that Paul’s success and no-nonsense practical approach is down to his upbringing on a farm in New Zealand, and his subsequent years as an engineer. He is very quick to see though the fluff and smoke to the real barriers to performance and coming up with innovative ways that lead to sustainable change.
More than that, he has a knack for story-telling when speaking, in plain language making complex ideas accessible and in a way that makes them transferable to the real world.
