Mat found his passion by chance in the early 1990’s in Europe with a simple question – can five hostels work together on common internet marketing? That lead to a Belgian based, worldwide budget travel marketing company; consulting with airlines, tour agencies, and governments.

In 2005 Mat returned to Victoria with his family and founded The Wright Result, focusing on small business, NGOs and community organizations offering integrated web, graphic and social media marketing.

Mat has been active in political and community activism creating best practices for social media in issue and political campaigns. He was the communication advisor for former MP Keith Martin, a campaign manager in a City of Victoria by-election, and Communication Director for Christopher Causton in the recent Federal election.
