What Makes Me Different :
I am an energetic 48 yr old with a bunch of crazy teenage kids and a sailing boat! I also am a ICF Credentialed Coach – the Gold Standard in coaching – with 25 years of commercial experience to bring to a business coaching conversation. Furthermore, I coach with a big heart and provide a safe place where clients discover their own power and resourcefulness.

What I Can Do For You:
I can help you get ‘unstuck’ and achieve greater freedom & abundance with your business.

What This Will Do For You:  
If you feel time poor, overwhelmed, and are working day and night… you simply cannot scale your business or professional career to the next level! I can help you move from not knowing what direction to head in, and perhaps even being close to giving up… to seeing your financial and time burdens lift off of your shoulders, regaining confidence, and ultimately getting unstuck so you can achieve your business goals.

What People Are Saying:
“Matthew’s business experience coupled with his unique style of coaching really helped me to explore areas of my business in which I felt ‘stuck.’” – Helen Round

“Matthew didn’t supply answers, what he did supply was a framework, a conduit to get us together in time and space… we were stuck and we became unstuck” Linda Skeats, Director i2ISO Ltd

“We’ve really transformed in the last year… we do things very differently since Matthew’s come in and the great thing is that he didn’t try and change who we are.” Sophie Cowles, Director Kingdom & Sparrow Ltd

Whether you are based in the South West or further afield reach out and I will step forward to work with you.

Matthew Porter ICF PCC 


I had very little experience of professional business coaching and expected little from the process. Matthew exceeded my expectations and really made a difference. Although I have been running my business for 12 years, he identified a service that I was providing that I had not consciously recognised, let alone told people and sold as part of my HR package. His expertise enabled me to gain clarity, focus, look at my business from a different point of view, identify my key client base and re-package my selling options and ensure that the service I offered was appropriate for the local market. I cannot recommend Matthew highly enough and I am aware that speaking to client companies that have also been lucky enough to be coached by him, that his abilities are not limited to just coaching for HR consultancy but a wide range of commercial organisations. When I feel the need for further business development I would not hesitate to ask for his support again.

Before Matthew walked in the door I thought “I will give this bloke 15 mins of my time and if he hasn’t impressed me I will get rid of him!”. 8 months later he was an intrinsic part of the company’s growth and recovery. Patient, knowledgable, empathetic and an all-round good bloke – Matthew is a bewdy!

Matthew was a tremendous help to us over the course of several months. He has an innate ability to calmly listen and digest and then sort through all the ‘noise’ and get to the key strategy points that require action.  I cannot recommend him highly enough!

Director, The Smart Home Company

Buzz has had the benefit of working closely with Matthew in a coaching capacity for the last 18 months and I can honestly say that he has helped our company to grow. Not only has our team expanded in numbers and our turnover increased, my fellow co-director and I have also expanded our vision and aims for the company and raised it to the next level.

What works particularly well for us when he facilitates our monthly sessions is that it forces us to take time out of the day-to-day activities to focus strategically on where we can take the business and shape it moving forward. Matthew teases out of us, with great insight, the solutions to potential problems on the horizon before they happen and helps us to maximise upcoming opportunities.
