About Paul Matthews

Long before Paul became sought after as an expert in the area of informal learning and workplace performance support, he grew up on a farm in New Zealand. His practical approach typifies the well-known Kiwi can-do attitude and focus on solutions that actually work. Leaving the farm behind, he travelled the world and gained valuable experience working in many industries and in many countries. His last big corporate role was Director for a NASDAQ-quoted global IT company. He set up People Alchemy Ltd in 1999 and ran leadership and management development programmes for many blue chip clients in the UK. His company now focuses on providing performance support tools which are a critical component of enabling informal learning in the workplace. Email: Call: 01908 325 167 Web: http: // more
