What dietitians are saying about this package

“Thanks Matt & Maree. This first webinar was great! Despite being part of the nutrition industry for many years I still got so much out of it. Like so many dietitians I’ve been increasingly frustrated by others encroaching on our area of expertise and loved your challenge to us to ponder the reality and leverage the system to our advantage instead. I look forward more pearls of wisdom in the webinars to come.” – Alison Patterson, APD

“Matt was extremely generous with information and advice – and the best part is that he understands how to apply his business acumen in the health professional world. I’d highly recommend Matt’s services to anyone needing to get some clarity & direction with their dietetic business.” – Sally Garrard, Accredited Sports Dietitian

“Matt’s superstar package is about coaching us to be more than “just dietitians”. Since engaging with the content, my brain is booming with new tools and the inside scoop on how to start and then build my personal brand. I’ve developed a deeper understanding of the why, the how and the what of running a successful nutrition business as well as using this as a coaching tool. Matt has impressed me and challenged me to go further!” – Kate Agnew, APD

“I’ve found the Superstar Coaching Package to have been the push I needed to put things in motion.” – Jennifer Issakov
