Matthew has been facilitating group work for 20 years. In that time he’s worked with groups of many kinds- from co-operatives and co-housing projects to campaigning NGOs and community activist networks. Inevitably conflict has arisen and he has supported groups to deal with it. He specialises in facilitating groups, small and large, to consensus and he has co-authored several guides on the subject.
Matthew has worked with Amnesty International, Fairtrade Foundation, University of Liverpool, Greenpeace, 38 Degrees, The Scarman Trust, Campaign against the Arms Trade, Centre for Alternative Technology, Co-operatives UK and Friends of the Earth. He is a member of the Rhizome Cooperative- a coop specialising in conflict resolution, consensus building and facilitation of contentious issues.
