Story
Tagline
World traveller, world class gossip, and lover of all things travel, maps and the gentle bucolic life. These are all my own thoughts and comments.
Introduction
A board level executive, Matthew is the Digital Director at Blackwell's. He has a key strategic focus on finding and executing new opportunities and guiding a digital step change - making Blackwell's the architects of the digital academic future.

Matthew makes the move from Hachette UK where as Digital Development Director he took a leading role in digital research & development and digital operations across the group's publishers.

Previously he held senior roles with Lonely Planet and at the BBC where Matthew led various digital and research projects that enabled innovation to become part of every day processes. He also spoke publically all over the world on behalf of both organisations –focusing on digital r&d and social marketing.

Matthew’s fundamental belief is that the boundaries of traditional business thinking should be challenged. A catalyst for change he inspires others to engage with change in a way that delivers real products and services.
