ABOUT MATTHEW PAINE
Global Success Coach
Matt works with professionals ready to go to a higher level.
If you are here because you feel you are different, motivated and ambitious then please read on. Matt partners with people exactly like you: globally connected and inspired to set your sights higher to get better results. That makes a lot of sense as some of your core values might be growth and progress!
He's worked in 7 different countries, partnered with about 106 companies (from Intel to IKEA), coached 22,500 people, and worked with 4 universities. In the words of Paula Adler, ex- PwC Director, New York: "If you want a local coach, there are many good ones around. If you want a truly global one, then your choice will narrow significantly. Matthew is certainly in the second group". Currently, he spends half his time in the UK, and half in Hong Kong. His client base is mainly from the US, the Middle East and Asia.
So, what does he do that helps you accelerate your growth? As a Certified Professional Coach and ICF-member, Matt uses the 4 COR.E programs from iPEC Coaching to get you to where you want to go. What makes him stand out from the crowd is that he infuses over 25-years of global experience from Germany to Japan into every hour of coaching with you. He shares special insights into working with cross-cultural teams. He knows; he's done it since 1993 in Tokyo. Your cup will truly overflow after an hour of his coaching. He is one of only about 190 quadruple-accredited COR.E coaches. That’s about 10 of them in each G20 country. Matt was trained by one of the top-3 coaching companies in the world, iPEC. Google them and you'll see why.
He offers 4 COR.E programs (in order of popularity) - Leadership, Performance, Wellbeing, and Transitions. They all boost your capability to function at an optimal level with less stress. They are available in a variety of formats to suit your needs - 1:1, small group, and whole team. He partners with you over Zoom, in your office or a blend of the two.
Matt's a 52-year old guy who grew up in a small rural town in England and who went to school with Paul McCartney's two daughters. Yes, really.
Also he's a great Peloton fan and enjoys 60-minutes a day on it. That's usually followed by 20-minutes journaling and one or two podcasts.
His highly optimistic spirit and ability to help professionals move ahead has been experienced by people around the globe from Shanghai to Seattle. From your first meeting, you can feel you are growing into new opportunities. It's great to have him in our team!
"Matthew's ability to work with and grow professionals goes beyond his vast skill and knowledge in education, training, and coaching; it is who he is as a person that makes the difference. Matthew's seemingly endless energy, optimism, and enthusiasm feed those around him and makes us want to be a part of what he is doing. You don't want to be left behind! For that reason, I highly recommend Matthew as the coach who can move your people to the next level of their profession!"
Steven Monroe, Regional Training Director, Airgas, US.
"I have known Matthew for the last year. During this time, I've been able to appreciate his contribution to Human Resources: he is a great listener, able to capture people’s strengths and inclinations and provide meaningful performance coaching and strategies to people of different backgrounds. He enjoys working with small groups/individuals and is a talented transformational coach with a business background. With his iPEC methods, he brings to the table a very professional and structured approach to staff coaching. And he does it with a smile."
