Matrix Coaching and Development Ltd was set up in 2014 by Dominic & Liz Proctor as it had always been a lifetime ambition to run their own consultancy business, where they could utilise the skills they had developed in the corporate world.
We are a business management consultancy, whose specialism lies in our innovative approach to developing both people and business performance. One of the definitions of a ‘matrix’ in the Oxford dictionary is “a mass of fine-grained rock in which gems, crystals, or fossils are embedded.” Our aim to is to work with you to release those hidden gems of opportunities by challenging conventional thinking in order to overcome obstacles and implement change that will result in sustainable profit and cash growth across your organisation.
The definition of a ‘matrix’ as ‘the cultural, social, or political environment in which something develops’ resonates with the strong desire to support and help people to develop. Everyone has the potential to perform well, they just need to realise and utilise their strengths and their environment in order to ‘shine’. Sometimes people need help to do this, as they become stuck, need to see things from a new perspective or need to be stretched and challenged and this is where Matrix Coaching & Development can help you, your staff and your business.
