Leadership

"Authentic, values-based leadership often takes great courage."

Leadership

Matina draws on her extraordinary experience of conquering one seemingly insurmountable leadership challenge after another, to help reframe our perspective on life.
In her relatable, girl-next-door style, Matina reminds us that it takes leaders who are courageous, and who have vision to lead their organisation into a direction where they may not be 100% certain how things will look on the other side.

Resilience

“Even out of adversity can come incredible opportunities, so long as we have the courage to pursue them.”

Resilience

Through courageous decision-making, Matina shares how she overcame almost inconceivable life and death situations, often in some of the harshest environments on earth. Always drawing out the learning, Matina shares how resilient organisations can be better equipped for everyday challenges - and major disruption - all while protecting our most valuable asset, our people.

Change

“Create a purpose-driven culture that thrives through change.”

Change

With the uncertainty that comes from the 'fog of war' comes the certainty of change. With so many of us 'change weary', Matina reminds us that now, more than ever, leaders need to know how to shift team mindsets from fearing and resisting change, to embracing it, to help create a culture that thrives through change.
