Matina embodies the spirit and courage of a determined woman who will not let adversity get in her way. She is an inspiration, role model to all around the world who are lucky enough to hear her story.

Matina draws on her extraordinary experience of conquering one seemingly insurmountable leadership challenge after another, to help reframe our perspective on life.
In her relatable, girl-next-door style, Matina reminds us that it takes leaders who are courageous and have the vision to take their organisation into a direction,
where they may not be 100% certain how things will look on the other side.


Through courageous decision making, Matina shares how she overcame almost inconceivable life and death situations, often in some of the harshest environments on earth. Always drawing out the learning, Matina shares how resilient organisations can be better equipped for everyday challenges and major disruption, all while protecting our most valuable asset, our people.


With the uncertainty that comes from the ‘fog of war’ comes the certainty of change. With so many of us ‘change weary’, Matina reminds us that it takes leaders who are able to shift our team mindset to one that embraces change, rather than fearing and
resisting it, to help create a culture that thrives through change.


Create deep and lasting change in yourself and your team with Matina’s impactful ‘war room workshops’.

This unique experience, tailored to your specific challenges, is the catalyst to building more resilient, united, high performing teams. Lead with authenticity and integrity to help transform the culture for your ‘corporate battlefield’
