Human Centred Designer,

“When I’m at Purpose, I feel like I’m with ‘my people’. People who get how important it is that we take a more conscious approach to the work we do and the organisations we build. The production quality of the event is also the best I’ve seen and I always walk away inspired, motivated and with a bunch of new friends.”

Matt is Founder and Director of strategic consultancy Fromm and creative network CoCircle. Matt launched Fromm and CoCircle in the belief that a co-operative model of distributed and autonomous specialists is the future of work, a future that is decentralised, distributed, collaborative and, therefore, a whole lot more human.

“Purpose is the best way I know to find the others, to hear the lessons and insights from smartest people doing what’s good and great out there on the perimeter, to make new connections, get inspired, riff on new ideas and build out a network of legends. I’m looking forward to seeing how the Wildwon crew will make this Purpose better than the last. Because you know they will.”

He helps businesses articulate why they exist, and strategically designs their businesses to do good and be impactful. He believes business is a powerful force for change and brings a human approach and practical business perspective when designing and implementing purpose-based models.

“There is so much happening at Purpose. So many amazing people to meet, conversations, music, a few surprises and of course amazing speakers. Every session is packed with interesting information, learnings, failures and great supportive debate. Attending Purpose gives me that injection to go back into the business world and continue to transform it.”

She is also a co-founder of The Point People, a collective of innovators, artists and entrepreneurs committed to driving systemic change for a more equitable society, and has written for and appeared in publications, conferences and events around the world.

“I keep coming back to the Purpose conference because of the fullness of the experience. Usually, conferences seek to nurture only one aspect of a human being but Purpose cultivates on the intellectual, emotional, and spiritual levels. You come out of it with a good sense of what is and isn’t meaningful.”
