Matthew Brannelly is setting new benchmarks in innovative growth strategies, providing a complete solution as a strategist, facilitator, marketer and ‘rainmaker’. Matthew  is not a talker, but very much a do’er, with the credentials to back up his advice. With an Economics Degree and 30 years of industry experience, Matthew Brannelly  has evolved his strategies over several decades in real practice. Previous roles include Founder of the Brisbane Junior Chamber of CommerceChairman of the Brisbane Bandits professional baseball team; Director of Commerce Queensland and 25 years developing a niche, high profile advisory firm specialising in the health professions. Rest assured, Matthew’s strategies are not based on theory, but proven methods that he personally has achieved. With every challenge Matthew sets for your business, he has the genuine credibility and experience to help you achieve it. Matthew has a rare talent for what American’s call “Rainmaking” which is the ability to connect to create business opportunities. His results are nothing short of outstanding.

Matthew is one of those rare individuals who can see the hidden opportunities for growth within an organisation’s current circumstances, remove obstacles, create solutions and align every fibre of the firm to grow in extremely prosperous new directions that you never may have dreamed of. After building his own successful company in the finance industry, Matthew began creating networks in the 1990’s of legal firms, accounting firms and financial advisors to work collaboratively and leverage from each other’s high net worth connections. The results party hugely exceeded all expectations.

This success was the beginning of Matthew’s quest to develop today’s full spectrum of innovative strategies, that are now driving significant growth across a variety of industries including integrated property services, telecommunications, energy, technology, funds management, Not For Profits (NFP’s) and Corporate Social Responsibility.


Now, more than ever, stakeholders, your staff and the community are conscious of the social impact businesses are making. They expect businesses like yours to look beyond simply making a profit, and make meaningful impact on  the communities in which you operate.

It’s all part of your corporate social responsibility. Essentially, business these days must also make a real, tangible contribution to society.

Is business giving built in to your community engagement strategy?

If not, it should be.

Because, in its simplest form, giving feels good. And it also does good. Making regular donations of money, time, or partnering with charities for the long-term, helps to make a difference in the lives of organisations and individuals that really need it.

From a business perspective, by positioning your business as a socially-responsible organisation it provides the benefits of generating stronger ties  with your community   , better staff engagement and creating a  more attractive environment for prospective employees.

Matthew  calls  this your “ Social Licence”
