About the Instructor

Matthew Brown
Productivity Ninja, Think Productive

Matthew has built a twenty-year career as a strategy and finance adviser to SMEs and corporates in the UK, Spain and Scandinavia.  He has a passion for getting things done – quickly, with maximum impact and with minimum stress.

Aside from operating as a Productivity Ninja in the London area, Matthew sits on a number of company boards and panels, and acts as an adviser and fund-raiser for entrepreneurial businesses.

His focus on advising businesses has given him a valuable perspective on the issues faced by individuals and companies as they address the demands of a fast-moving, global business environment.  He uses this perspective and business understanding to run workshops for Think Productive clients that deliver productive momentum, tailored to the business needs of the client.

Away from Think Productive, Matthew writes fiction and plays drums.  He enjoys real ale and DIY but not simultaneously, and rides a Harley.

He has a first degree in Systems Management from The City University, an MBA from Manchester Business School and an MSc in Environmental Technology from Imperial College London.

Matthew speaks fluent Spanish.
