Matt is Managing Director of Agencies and Partners at Google where he works with leading advertisers and agencies to help them get the most from the web. He joined in 2010 and previously he has worked in press and digital publishing. He also started his own business that failed, which is seen as a badge of honour now but didn't feel like it at the time. Matt is a regular public speaker on many topics around digital, technology and media and how businesses might want to react to benefit from it. Matt loves running, especially to music that reminds him of his youth, and doing his best to be a great Dad to 3 daughters.
