Matthew's Career History
chit-chat is a new and disruptive national non-profit organisation born during the peak of a global pandemic. We are the go-to place for a chat and are proactive in tackling loneliness, isolation and promoting positive psychological, emotional and mental wellbeing. As an Advisory Board Member, I advise the CEO/Founder on our operational strategy, partnerships and risk in alignment with our business values and purpose.
I am responsible for managing an international team of procurement and partner/relationship management specialists tasked with managing and negotiating BT’s technology contracts. My team is responsible for managing BT’s annual technology spend of over £1 billion across BT's biggest, most strategic suppliers and large “tail” of smaller, niche suppliers/start-ups.
As well as delivering cost savings across technology, my main focus is on transformation across both procurement processes/functions, as well as technology and architecture. The aim of this programme is to modernise our technology strategy to align with BT’s new strategy and brand identity across both internal and customer facing products and solutions. This remit also extends to managing the mergers, acquisitions and divestments for BT from a technology perspective.
I am responsible for negotiating the "big" deals across all of CBA Group that are of high value and complexity, across both technology and non-technology. The purpose of the team is to put a strategic lens on the end to end negotiation, ensuring it aligns with current and forecasted requirements, the future roadmap and ensures maximum value to the Bank, whilst reducing the overall cost base.
