“Matthew is a reliable and diligent consultant who knows his field”

Matthew is a reliable and diligent consultant who knows his field. His help was invaluable in helping my start-up navigate some core issues in the world of printing.

Julian Jarvis, CEO, Tailcast

“Promised savings were comfortably found”

If you think you are on top of your print buying you might be in for a surprise! We asked Print & Procurement to undertake a print audit. Matthew said ‘’If we do not find savings sufficient to earn back our fee twice over we’ll have failed.’’ Those promised savings were comfortably found. Since then when it comes to those ‘one-off’ jobs we turn to Print & Procurement. We get valuable money saving advice as well as sharper prices. And lots of valuable time is being better used by not chasing round printers.

“Matthew has exceptional industry knowledge and a talent for thinking outside the box”

I recommend Matthew very highly for all print related projects. He is a delight to work with and delivers excellent results. Matthew has exceptional industry knowledge and a talent for thinking outside the box. He is highly effective at finding both the best way to deliver the original specification and, importantly, identifying where slight adjustments to the brief can deliver significant additional cost savings and efficiencies. He works quickly, effectively and with complete integrity to deliver real, measurable benefits. 10/10!

James Bury, Auditel

“He really wants his clients to come up with the best results. Plus, he’s a lot of fun to work with!”

Matthew is a consultant who is totally committed to his clients and to delivering on his promises.  He has an excellent understanding of both the challenges of the print channel and the opportunities it presents. As a result, companies that engage with Print & Procurement will certainly have an opportunity to re-evaluate their current processes, come up with practical solutions to any challenges that they face and come away with tangible results. I would have no hesitation in recommending Matthew as a consultant and trainer who really wants his clients to come up with the best results.  Plus, he’s a lot of fun to work with!

“The very next day, one of our team used the techniques learnt to win an order at a much higher margin than we’d normally expect”

Matthew has now taken two groups at ESP for negotiation training. The groups included sales, customer service, purchasing, production control and logistics. Some were a little wary of the role playing but once the nerves were overcome, participated keenly and certainly learnt from the experience. The very next day, one of our team used the techniques learnt to win an order at a much higher margin than we’d normally expect. Matthew puts an interesting twist into the day and you quickly learn to be very careful of the flying Elks!

Pete Lucas, Commercial Director, ESP Colour
