Matt founded Discernable® in 2019 with a simple mission: to be the most helpful resource available for small and medium businesses. This was built on an ethos of authenticity and relatability, both of which Matt found lacking in business strategy resources. Drawing on a long career of entrepreneurial experience, Matt packaged MBA material, research and business acumen into attractive and 'lubricated' content that was easy to digest and easy to share.
The same respect for an audience's time and tastes carried over into 2020 when Discernable® gained traction editorialising and teaching on legal and political matters in Victoria, Australia.
Soon after, guests began appearing on Discernable® to expand the one-way editorial into a two-person conversation and virality ensued. We discovered an unexpected but vital resource in Matt: the ability to apply a sharp mind with broad experience to an on-air conversation, whilst remaining mindful of audience needs. Discernable® now
stands unique in its DNA of trust, authenticity and respect for audience, witnessed in every piece of content we make.
