Consultancy on governance, operations, and technology in the non-profit and philanthropic sectors.


Kia ora!

I whānau mai au i te taha o te awa o Waikato.
I raro i te maru a ngā maunga o Maungatautari.
He uri ahau nō Ingarani, nō Kotirana.
Kei te noho au kei Tāmaki makaurau.
I whānau mai au i konei nā te Tiriti i tuku ōku tūpuna kia haere mai ki Aotearoa.
Ko Duncan Matthews tōku ingoa
