Hosted by the University of Northampton, the Graduate Launchpad Event is aimed at supporting their students through the recruitment process and helping to prepare them for applying for graduate roles after university. Director of Square Media, Matthew was invited to attend the event as keynote speaker. Here’s what Matthew had to say after the event…
“This week, I was invited to attend the University of Northampton to speak at the Graduate Launchpad; an event aimed at supporting students through the graduate recruitment process. I spoke specifically about my journey starting my own business and my experiences on both sides of the table as an employer and as an employee. My talk was followed by an excellent Q&A and one to one sessions thereafter. I focused my speech on the power of failure; in experiencing failure and knock-backs you often find the route to success. Failure has been a necessary part of my journey and it has taught me never to give up. I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity, received some brilliant feedback from the students and was inspired by their individual journeys and ambitions. It was also a good opportunity for myself to reflect on the journey I have travelled so far, and how lucky I am to have the team behind me that I do; without which, we would not have achieved the success that we have so far. I look forward to welcoming future graduates through our doors to join our team and I would encourage other small business owners in my position to do the same.”

“I am very pleased with the work SM has done for me. I'm a writer, not a publicist - in fact where that matters I am a complete dweeb. The website was fantastic, the suggestions apt and to the point. It's the first time I've had associates actually shove stuff in my face & say 'do this' - most of the literary crowd tend to be more of a 'whatever' mentality - which when you are a muppet, doesn't help matters. Thanks, SM. You are just what I needed.”
