About Me

Hi, my name is Matt Chan.

I write here on my blog and elsewhere, on a variety of topics including Business, Startups, Digital Marketing, Web, and Self-Improvement.

As a student of life, I strive to learn and improve each and every day. I seek new and better ways of doing things, so I can fulfill my goals, ambitions, and aspirations as quickly and effectively as possible. I hope I can share some of things I've learnt - and some of the things I am learning - so that you can benefit as well. And likewise, in return, I hope you can contribute and teach me things too.

I currently live and work in the UK, and have previously done the same in Hong Kong.

What I Do

Day to day, I work for a UK-based technology company called stickee as their Marketing Director. I am responsible for ensuring that as many people in the world know of us, know what we do, and how we can add value to them and / or their company. For more information, have a look at our site at https://stickee.co.uk.

If you or your team would like to work with us, or if you think you've got something our company may be interested in, contact me on LinkedIn and I will personally deal with your enquiry.

What I've Done

I've worked extensively in the telecoms industry (both B2B and B2C), taking care of Digital Strategy, eCommerce, Marketing and 'New Ventures'. It was during my time in the telecoms industry that I learnt it was possible to do whatever I wanted, and be whatever I wanted to be! Entrepreneurship and financial freedom was made real to me here.

I also co-started and ran my own company Nunca Ltd with my business partner Daniel Richards. We did lead generation for companies who wanted to quickly grow their client base. It was the most challenging yet rewarding part of my career. I enjoyed every moment of it. As any founding member of a company will tell you, you must get involved in all aspects of your business. I found myself taking care of things, from janitorial duties to web development, legal matters to finance. Why did we stop? Our business was acquired by stickee. Running Nunca Ltd was a truly life changing experience.

And many years prior to all of this, I spent brief periods of time in the insurance, automotive, and nonprofit sectors. I studied law for a couple of years before I decided I should stop. I realised that my time was better spent on other things (family, business, non-traditional education). I did not graduate.
