About Me - Matt Essam

My story

Having worked in the creative industries for over 12 years within big agencies as well as running his own freelance business, I realised that being successful is about more than just adding bigger projects to your portfolio.

In 2015 a series of unexpected events changed my perspective on life and I decided that it was time to find some meaning and purpose in my work. With the support from some of the UK’s leading entrepreneurs and business mentors, I developed a unique framework that I now use to help established freelancers and small agencies to grow their business through work that is both creatively fulfilling and financially rewarding.

    My sessions with Matt really helped me to clearly define my goals and achieve things I previously thought were beyond my reach, including having my music played on BBC radio and winning new freelance clients.

    Before I started working with Matt, I knew what I wanted to do, but I didn’t really know how to get there. I wasn’t measuring my performance at all and I rarely wrote down my goals or aims, they mainly stayed in my head. I look forward to our meetings, as I know at the end, a problem will be resolved, as conflict dissolved or a plan of action made.
