I grew up listening to and learning from Mr. Mathias Akpuogwu. He has a leadership style that is innate and God-central, with a passion for youth development and self-actualization.  He was one of my major formatters and Coaches while developing as a young Christian. He believes “You are best suited in defeating your demons”, while also practicing what he preaches. Now grown up as a qualified engineer, and with a family of my own, I can proudly say that I applied a lot of what he taught me to every area of my life and today, I am the better for it. I endorse his peculiar qualities in helping to bring out “The YOU in  you.

Matty is a teacher, a leader and a model of an exemplary life. He made me understand the importance of doing things the right way the very first time. He taught me to believe in myself and focus on my abilities. Matty makes remarkable impact on anybody he comes in contact with. He doesn't just teach he lives out what he teaches. I met him years ago when he was teaching in the Life in the Spirit Seminars back then in Nigeria and I'm glad that we crossed each other's path.

                             "

When I embraced the Christian faith as a young man I needed a mentor to inspire and guide me in discovering God's purpose and calling for me. Matty was leading a group of young people and I was not attracted to him initially until the day I listened to him speak. Immediately, I saw in him a river of life giving water. He is capable of changing anyone and any situation for good. I learned three things from Brother Matty, as we fondly called him, that completely changed my life. One is that God loves me, has the best plan for me – that I have a choice. Two is serving others in sincerity and humility leads to greatness. The third is hard work – God blesses a diligent worker. His world-view totally changed my perception of life. I am living with vision inspire by God through Brother Matty. I have never said this before, I am grateful I met somebody like him. May God bless him for the impact he made in my life.

I first started coaching sessions with Mathias Akpuogwu not long after I returned to the UK after 11 years in France, where I had suffered severe depression. I had a short time treatment in London and now wanted to build a new life, but felt emotionally fragile. Today, with Matty's help, I have successfully transitioned, redesigned my identity and I am a qualified teacher and happily married mother of two.

I met Matt over 20 years ago and it was at a point I was seeking greater clarity and purpose for my life. He was then leading a group of young men and women who needed guidance. He taught me never to settle for less, to strive to be the best. He is a firm believer in the power of the mind to achieve all it sets out to achieve. All those things I learned many years back have formed the framework that moves me through my career today; as a paediatric oncologist I dish out huge doses of empathy. Thanks Matt for training and inspiring me to accept the humanity of others.

I am a Catholic Priest of the Order of Preachers (Dominicans). My desire and ardent love for God was fanned into flame when many years ago I met a young man named Mathias, who was very joyful and passionate for God. He was mentoring and coaching young people on subject matters that were really important to them. I admired that joyfulness and his youthful zeal and wise counsel, and I decided to stick around him. He was for me and many others then a model of a youth. He was our mentor and coach, and he gave us a clear and godly sense of direction at that critical phase in our lives. He has been a friend and big brother to many of us for decades now. Fully embracing the business of empowerment and personal development is, in my view, a fantastic decision and I am really happy because that, I believe, is his vocation in life. Matty is not just a godly motivator, he is a caring listener and counsellor. I recommend him to anyone and everyone who wish to have a positive, focused, humane and heavenly oriented and successful lifestyle.

Matty really helped me to understand how much God really loves me. With his warm, charming smiles he draws people close to him and encourages them to be the best they can possibly be. He inspired me to aspire to be the best in all that I do. Today I'm happy and successful entrepreneur. I'm grateful to you Matt.

Wow! I reluctantly went into this coaching thing, not sure if it's going make any difference, but from the very start, I felt him reaching through to my soul. His techniques are very effective and I am very clear about what to do with my life.

I would definitely recommend Mathias'coaching sessions. Even with just a few sessions he gave me the pointers to focus on what was important in order for me to get my project off the ground. Whether it is practical advice or motivation, I found each session extremely useful. I am now much more confident that I will accomplish my long term target. His questioning style and technique inspired deep thinking and encouraged me to brainstorm.

It unbelievably took me only four months to achieve an exceptional success in my career. My department achieved 91% pass rate in 2013, from 71% the previous year, placing us among the top 1% in England. This is one of many achievements I have had since making use of Matty's coaching sessions - not mentioning personal growth, self-belief, critical thinking & strategic planning. I unreservedly recommend him to anyone who aspires for greatness in any aspect of their life.
