“I worked very closely with Matt at Syco. He is a tough, savvy and calm negotiator, who always knows which areas to focus on to get the deal done. He is very personable and down-to-earth and understands the world of talent and Entertainment inside out. A great person to have on your side!”
"I first met Matt when he negotiated my News At Ten contract on behalf of ITV. He was a tough but sensitive negotiator and very pleasant to deal with. He has a great understanding of television, from both the point of view of the on-screen talent and TV companies, and a fabulous commercial brain. I would heartily recommend his services".

"Matt brings a wonderful calmness to negotiations, ensuring that all parties come to a fair and amicable agreement. He is not just a great listener but also a fantastic orator, explaining situations in an easy to understand way, making everyone feel at ease. He is a very valuable asset to my team."
"Matt was an incredible support in negotiating commercial terms in a specialist area I had little experience of. He was patient, supportive, and very commercially astute in advising us how to proceed. He made the whole process very smooth and far less stressful than I expected. I would wholeheartedly recommend giving Matt a call to discuss any commercial agreements or projects to get his view on how to take your initiative forward."
