Director and Senior Consultant
Matt is a Senior Consultant and Co-Founder of FPC. He works on the full range of projects at FPC that span the environment, health and social sectors. Matt works with clients in both public and private sectors, domestically and internationally. He is recognised for his adaptable approach, and consideration for both short-term and strategic long-term needs. This has resulted in strong and ongoing relationships with multiple organisations.
In addition to evaluation, Matt also has a strong interest in approaches to the design of projects, programs and services. This ranges from human-centred design, co-design, the use of evidence and working with clients to figure out 'what works' for them. In recent times this has extended to systems-based approaches to understanding complex problems, and what we might do to address these.
Matt is also a recognised facilitator (both online and in-person). He has designed and led evaluation capability building programs for large State Government entitites, training on systems methodologies, and a blended approach to co-design and evaluation processes.
Matt is Secretary of the Australasian Evaluation Society (AES) Special Interest Group (SIG) on Design and Evaluation. The SIG recognises the links between design and evaluation and the importance of these fields complementing each other.
Matt was a Consultant at Roberts Evaluation for one and a half years. Prior to that he spent nearly five years working on a variety of projects and roles in the international and higher education sectors at La Trobe University and the University of Melbourne. In 2014, Matt was an event coordinator for the Sustainable Living Festival.
