Line Management
“Sam and Matteo were great. So personable, knowledgeable and great at facilitating. Virtual, day long workshops are HARD and they kept the group interested and entertained throughout it all. I really learnt a lot and am very happy I got to do the course.”

“The training was really enjoyable, Pradeep and Matteo are excellent trainers who kept the energy high over two very intense days!”

“Sally and Matteo were awesome. Really helped me understand everything being discussed, made you feel welcome and made you feel every question was valid and important. These two days have already made me feel more confident and has me excited to try the things I’ve learnt in the office.”

“Brilliant course, very well facilitated. Great double act with Matteo and Susie. I liked the less formal style with avoiding death by power point. Was really interactive.”

Strategic Planning
“Matteo was clearly very knowledgeable in this area. I really enjoyed it. It was explained in a way that was palatable and easy to apply.”

Matteo has had a truly international background having lived in the USA, Italy, Libya, the Netherlands, Egypt, France, and the UK. He speaks fluent English, Italian, and is proficient in Spanish and basic French.

His background includes a Masters in Physics, research at a particle accelerator in France (the ESRF), a PGCE from King’s College, teaching at high performing schools (City of London School, South Hampstead High School), and an ICF accredited Diploma in coaching from Animas. He was Head of Executive coaching for a diversity and inclusion consultancy where he built a global team of coaches and designed programmes to support leaders on their journey to inclusivity.

Matteo holds the second highest accreditation, the PCC, from the International Coaching Federation (ICF). He is on the board of the ICF as Director of Professional Development and very passionate about influencing the coaching industry in the U.K. toward a deeper and safer integration of coaching and society.

His international, scientific and educational backgrounds make him at home both with highly technical as well as creative work which means he is ideally suited to our style at Aspire.

He joined Aspire Leadership as part of an international project we run with Bristol Myers Squibb in Italy and in the UK. He very quickly became an invaluable member of our team working with a range of our clients particularly on Communication and Negotiation courses.

He has also worked with many clients (Revolut, HMRC, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Paddle, Hanson Wade, Avalara, Foolproof, MET police, London Institute of Banking and Finance, and more) on our public and tailored courses covering Influencing, Assertiveness, Negotiation, Line Management, Leadership, Presentation skills, and Strategic Planning.

Matteo is committed to leadership in education currently supports staff and students at DLD College as performance and wellbeing coach.

In his spare time he offers pro-bono coaching to leaders in the development sector through EthicalCoach, travels the world for modern Zouk (a Brazilian partner dance), plays piano (mostly Chopin and Rachmaninoff), reads (currently lots of adult developmental psychology and meta-modern politics), is an avid meditator (10 day vipassana retreats), and plays chess (a bit too much!)
