My name is Matthew Rich-Tolsma. This is my personal website. I am delighted that you have decided to stop by and find out a little more about me and my work.
I am South African and Dutch, and have lived and worked in a number of countries in Africa, Asia, and Europe.
I am a coach, mediator, and thinking-partner and have worked with leaders in a wide range of organisations and communities. I previously served as an executive director of an award winning UK-based organisational development consultancy, and have worked independently with a handpicked portfolio of clients and leadership functions since 2020.
I also teach and write across disciplines in a wide range of forums; I previously served as a Fellow at the Philosophy Faculty at Palacky University, Czech Republic, and was a Carnegie Visiting Scholar at the Global Change Institute at Wits University, South Africa.
I bring influences from Group Analysis, critical theatre and improvisation, and Nonviolent Communication to my work with individuals and groups.
