Turning Leaf went out of its way to understand the core needs of the business. Matt met early on with our people – including those based overseas and interstate – to build rapport and understand the situation; this made a huge difference.
The combination of real-world knowledge and business understanding was impressive but, in addition, Matt shares the values of our organisation and helped us make progress faster than expected. Perhaps most importantly, the project helped us get sales results for Chandon – one of our most important brands.
Jonathan Weavers, Marketing Manager Moet Hennessy
Turning Leaf provided the experience and guidance to really take our sales and marketing plan to the next level, and we appreciate your input. Turning Leaf exceeded our expectations…you helped bring together all the good ideas and present it in such a way as to ensure it was motivating, fun, clear and concise. Your facilitation turned the ideas into an action plan, which is such an important, and sometimes overlooked or undervalued step.
Thank you for your energy, enthusiasm, shared experience and professionalism.
Jayne Pearson, Marketing Manager, Plasdene Glass Pak
Matt is one of the most passionate brand marketers I have worked with. His incredible ability to draw out the key issues and challenges from stakeholders is uncanny, and he is able to hit the nail right on the head with his insights and solutions. I would highly recommend Matt.
Melissa Houghton, Managing Director, Sustainability at Work
Matt is a natural innovator. He comes up with ideas and strategies that actually work. He has a profound ability to analyze any problem and suggest an out of the box solution that would be very practically applicable and bound to bring out results. A very sound professional and very aware of what he is doing.

“After years of strong growth we wanted to lift the performance of our marketing and get more inbound leads to the business. Our business has a real strength in our internal systems and quality control, so we knew if we could find the right leads we’d be able to convert them into deals.
I interviewed 6 other marketing consultants before we found Turning Leaf. I was looking for someone who could introduce new ideas but also unify them with the proven processes we already had in place. Matt has a strong commercial sense as well as creative instinct, so the workshop sessions were great. Matt had everyone involved and working together well. We came up with a complete annual marketing plan, and a clear strategy. The plan worked. We significantly increased our flow of qualified leads in a very competitive market.”
Zoran Sarabaca, Managing Director, Xcllusive Business Sales
Matt has provided valuable marketing and sales advice through the start-up phase of my consulting practice. Matt is an independent and creative marketer who translates theory into very practical activities. Matt’s expansive thinking and challenge always stimulates my own marketing efforts.

McDowall is delighted with the proactive approach Turning Leaf have brought to our business. When we first started considering a direct and digital strategy, I was concerned the project might not pay back.
Since working with Turning Leaf, however, we will always communicate with our clients with a tailored direct and digital communications strategy. The Turning Leaf process was highly stimulating for our team, and after we finalised our brand architecture we identified hidden segments and communication opportunities which have led to new business wins. I would recommend Turning Leaf to any business looking to develop a branding strategy and sales through digital and direct marketing.

The National Breast Cancer Foundation asked Turning Leaf to help us develop a long-term branding and sponsorship strategy, to help us fuel our future growth. I was initially a little uncertain about the type of impact an expert external resource would bring, but the Turning Leaf processes brought clarity to our team and delivered valuable new insights. Matt led an extensive review of our situation and developed a clear set of strategic recommendations, all of which have been adopted by the National Breast Cancer Foundation board. Our team has been delighted with the passion Matt brought to our project and we all look forward to working with Turning Leaf again.

We recently asked Turning Leaf to help us improve our direct mail and e-communications with our clients in Australia and New Zealand. Tomatic has a large existing database, and in the first instance I wasn’t sure how the process would uncover new information. I have to say, I was blown away with the results because through the workshop sessions our team were able to get real clarity on our top-priority client groups and their key drivers. Tomatic is now armed with a new messaging strategy and we focus on the areas where the size of the prize is greatest. I have already suggested Turning Leaf to other businesses and would recommend them to anyone without hesitation.

Matt and Turning Leaf have provided Australian Food Innovators with project management and innovation processes to help us bring our new food products to market. I would recommend Turning Leaf, to businesses looking to improve their ability to get innovative new products to market.

I freely admit that I was wary about bringing in a consultant, but now I’m convinced. Our marketing has never been as clear and focused…. The results speak for themselves.
Leonie Walton, Head of Marketing, NIDA
Advance Design has been working closely with Turning Leaf for the past 12 months. Our objective was to develop a “marketing machine” to reach prospects of a specified size in specified markets.
12 months on, what I have received has surpassed my expectations. From Christine and Annie’s attention to detail and personal dedication to building our new website, to Matt’s personal passion, perhaps obsession, with staying right at the very forefront of digital marketing, we have “cracked the code”.
The leads we receive today are generally smack on our target market and in many cases the prospect seems to know quite a bit about us when they email or call. If you have long term interest in growing your business, Turning Leaf are your people.”
Ray Lehrer, Managing Director, Advance Design
“We loved the way Matt and Christine worked so hard to plan and then help us get our great new game of Australian Shuffleboard launched for the benefit of our Senior Australians.”
