About the Presenter:


Matt Symes, CEO Symplicity Designs

The thinking that got you here won’t get you there.

Scaling an organization is extremely difficult work. Most fail. Matt works tirelessly to help you make sense of the messy middle and grow your organization.

Matt loves to help others. Over the last 10 years, Matt has helped more than 350 organizations improve, innovate, and grow.

Internally at Symplicity, he is responsible for that same growth journey. Not only can he speak from having helped others grow their own business, but he can speak candidly about the trials and tribulations of growing Symplicity Designs along the way.

Matt completed his BA/BEd from the University of New Brunswick and his MA at Wilfrid Laurier University. He is currently on leave from his PhD studies as he works to grow Symplicity Designs. He is thrilled to be able to work with clients to shift the organizational paradigm - Business can serve a client, be better for the world, and inspirational for the people who go to work everyday. Getting to that point with every business is what gets him out of bed every morning.
