My name is Matt, and I’ve been infused with a global mindset from 2009 when first moving to Kuala Lumpur.
In the years since, I’ve muddled along in Malaysia (once more), China, Iraqi Kurdistan and Hong Kong. All the bits and pieces career-wise can be seen on my LinkedIn page.
It’s been one heck of a ride, and I have a few stories to tell (but not today).
While I’m not unique as an Englishman abroad, my being out in Asia coincided with interesting times.
Unstoppable global changes included the financial crisis in 2008, the smartphone revolution and phenomenal rise of social media, and the emergence of the so-called BRICS.
Now we are on the brink of yet more change – the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
Innovation is a topic I’ve visited many times throughout my career, for example:
- Launching a Microsoft technology blog
- Influencing Malaysia’s former Prime Minister to record and share a video about green energy on his Facebook page
- Leading a time of writers to create content for the UK Department for International Trade’s GREAT Festival of Innovation in Hong Kong
I could go on and tell my story, but this isn’t about me. It’s about you and I both, and how we can work together.
Contact me if you would like to collaborate.
