Matthew Syed

Matthew Syed is a journalist, broadcaster and author of two best-selling books Black Box Thinking and Bounce.

Matthew speaks often to high profile organisations about high performance and how success happens. He talks about growth mindset, the need to embrace failure and how to build a culture of relentless improvement. Just as the entire aviation industry learns from each aircraft’s black box after an incident, failure should become an opportunity to adapt and grow.
