Matthew Dunn

Matthew is a former elite MI6 intelligence officer and expert in providing creative leadership to inspire people to perform the extraordinary.

Matthew Dunn spent many years covertly operating as a spy in hostile locations around the world, enacting absurdly complex and highly dangerous operations and recruiting foreign nationals to do the same.
After retiring from service, he spent the last decade achieving international acclaim as a bestselling author of 14 spy novels and producing expert commentary on security and intelligence issues for global media networks and remains a trusted and incisive interviewee for major networks.

In the shadows, Matthew has carved a renowned and unique niche wherein he applies his groundbreaking MI6 methodology to inspire and guide individuals and groups to creatively achieve the seemingly impossible.

Matthew underwent extensive training in all aspects of field officer espionage before being appointed to an operational team. Matthew was an “A-Z” spy, meaning he had to have the ability to operate with zero support and back-up.

Alongside direct action, a key component of what he did was the recruitment and running of “agents” – foreign individuals with access to secrets. Such individuals were priceless to him and the bond shared was closer than that of a typical family.

Matthew was tasked against ‘Category 1’ challenges – nuclear annihilation, conventional wars, espionage, and state-sponsored terrorism and assassinations. Within the course of his work Matthew came face-to-face with the best of humankind, and the very worst. If he’d have been caught and his real role identified, he’d have faced life imprisonment or execution.

Regular topics Matthew speaks on include motivation of workplace culture, protecting businesses/agencies from hostile human attack, leading by example, the role of human intelligence in today’s complex and technology-driven world, and broader security and intelligence commentary.
