Businesses & Brands We’ve Partnered With


Four P are a rare find; their ability to strategically see the possibilities for businesses and how to get there is an asset for any company they work with. They have guided the development of many efficiency improvement programs and helped others implement them with success through effective partnering and change management.

Director – Organisational Coaching & Consultants

Matt has an agile and strategic mindset that can help others navigate complexity and deliver on their plans. Intelligence, business acumen and pragmatism in equal measure make him a trusted advisor.

Global Head of Leadership Development - Multinational FMCG

The Four P Partnership brings a unique balance of strategic agility and action orientation to the table. They are not afraid to challenge the status quo and constantly look for improvement. Matt & Nathan were an important part of our turnaround story. I highly recommend them.

Global Operations Director, Multinational FMCG

Given that we are in essence a start-up with scale, we did not want the typical heavy structure that many consultants bring. As a result, Nathan was able to align on our top priorities and focus his assistance quickly. An element of the consultation that impressed me the most was the willingness to answer follow up questions, with passion, following the workshop. I felt like a valued client. In addition, the flexibility to match the program to our needs and budget was refreshing.

Chief Executive Officer, FMCG

Four P are highly versatile and results driven partners. Their views are thoughtful, inspirational, and if acted upon, drive "point of difference" change. I hope we get the chance to partner again in the future.

General Manager - Multinational Consumer Goods

Matt worked with us during a significant time of change and transition in our organisation. As a finance partner, he was always proactive in leveraging his significant diagnostic and analytic skills to provide insights, and observations. He was instrumental in helping us navigate complex challenges, shape our direction and reach key agreements. Matt is very principled in his outlook on life and business and was a very highly respected partner.
