How do you educate an audience of printers about what the buyer needs?

Matthew speaking at the Fuji Xerox Innovate 2012 conference in Singapore

Many print conferences offer excellent speakers from the print industry.  They also have inspirational speakers from outside the industry.  But it can be hard to find buyers who tell it like it really is.

It can be harder still to find buyers who are experienced speakers.

Matthew is a regular keynote speaker at print events.  His aim is to show print companies the buyer’s view.  But he also gives printers practical actionable advice on how they can improve their engagement with buyers.

He creates lively sessions that are designed to appeal to different learning styles.  It is not unusual to find Matthew with a travel pillow or a fluffy elk.  But these props all have a serious purpose in helping the learning experience.

For the first time, the audience got an in-depth view of how a professional print buyer reacts to how proposals are presented


Bjorn FrantsenMatthew’s presentation opened up the eyes and minds of many of the participants at our PrintSea 2013 conference.


Particularly useful was the part where Matthew described how he, as a print buyer, experienced the way printers presented them selves.


Matthew is a person with a lot of experience.  He is able to engage the audience.  He speaks with a clear and uncomplicated message.


I am happy to recommend Matthew because his experience is relevant for the graphic industry.  I am happy to have people like him to educate and give in-depth information to a fast changing industry.
