Matthew is a proven leader and communicator. After starting his career in sales Matthew soon established himself in the field of financial services, successfully running his own consultancy business, where he raised capital for numerous early-stage tech companies in the environmental, social and governance field.
Matthew experienced first hand the difficulties faced by these innovators in commercialising their world changing technologies. Inspired by their determination and devotion to succeed he wanted to create an environment where these pioneers of tomorrow could access all of the resources they required to change the world for the better.
He believes that the services provided by the Sustainable Network will do just that and accelerate our global transition to a sustainable future by creating meaningful and significant solutions for change.
Matthew is an advocate of personal and spiritual development and strives to be better with each day that passes. He practices meditation daily, and is at his happiest in nature, either in the countryside or by the ocean. His true inspiration comes from his young daughter and his desire to leave behind a legacy for her and all future generations.

For over a decade Russell worked in sales and marketing for numerous small businesses before travelling the world for three years.
Russell and his family volunteered at more than 15 projects in Asia, Australia and South America. In India and Colombia he learnt about permaculture and successfully regenerated and reforested land supporting thriving sustainable communities.
Subsequently Russell qualified as a permaculture teacher and has taught hundreds of students at his farm and sustainable community in Colombia.
In 2020, the pandemic hit and Russell realised it was time to pivot and scale his teaching, utilising his years of experience in reforesting, growing food organically, and living life sustainably, in order to impact an even broader audience.
Based from his palm-roofed off-grid hut in the tropics, Russell created an online virtual summit named Generation Regeneration with the intention of bringing together worldwide sustainability leaders.
Russell believes that by harnessing permaculture design and human ingenuity we can regenerate our world. Russell is actively living a regenerative and sustainable lifestyle and is excited to use his experiences to help co-create a sustainable world, through the development of the Sustainable Network

Sustainable Development Goals
The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a collection of 17 linked global aims designed to be a ‘blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all’. They are a call for action by all countries - developed and developing - in a global partnership.
They recognise that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all
while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.
We believe that the requirement to address these challenges is urgent, and are proud to be aligning with and supporting the implementation of this ambitious yet vital agenda.
"Be the change that you want to see in the world"
Global change requires global action, each and every one of us has a responsibility to our planet and each other to live more sustainably. Small changes can make a big difference to positively impact climate change.
The team at Sustainable Network as a collective and as individuals, has taken several steps to ensure that we lead by example as a carbon positive workforce.
Our partnership with Ecologi, allows us to offset our carbon footprint whilst creating employment for local families and restoring wildlife habitats. We are proud to be funding the highest standard climate projects to accelerate our transition to a sustainable future.
We proudly support and sponsor Generation Regeneration; a social movement with the objective of empowering people all over the world by providing them with simple skills and techniques to find local solutions to social, economic and environmental problems. As well as providing educational support, the organisation is actively engaged in projects supporting regenerative agriculture, reforestation and watercourse restoration.
