I was privileged to interview Matthew about his career journey, what inspires him and his relentless drive to help others in need, his passion, and the care he shows for the community through his inspiring work at Suicide Prevention Australia.
In 2014 Matthew was appointed a member of the World Class New Zealand Network that seeks to promote New Zealand, its business and its culture around the world.
In 2015 he was appointed as Chairman of Australia’s National Coalition for Suicide Prevention and has been a Non-Executive Director of the Board of Australia’s peak mental health body, Suicide Prevention Australia. In November of 2017 Matthew was elected as Chair of Suicide Prevention Australia.
As Host of “Talking Lifestyle; Second Career” radio show Matthew is dedicated to helping Australia’s unemployed get employed and his National Employment Exchange initiative is one that does just that.
We have a fascinating chat about his early days and what inspired him to achieve so much with such enthusiasm and with such a caring attitude towards everyone he meets.
