Transition 15's story from founder, Matt Perry

Being on the playing field and working as a team has felt natural to me ever since my schooldays. I made my rugby debut for Bath rugby club against Nottingham in 1995 at the age of 18, which led to debuting for the England team against Australia 2 years later. 

At 23, I became the most capped Full Back, with 36 caps. I played in the 1999 World Cup as well as the Lions tour to Australia in 2001. 

Transition from rugby…

When injury forced me to retire from rugby in 2007, I wanted to build on what I’d learnt from the field, and the business management qualification I secured during night school. Meeting Simon Wilsher, we realised we could combine our skills and expertise to establish a new way of building high performance teams. Simon has 25 years of experience in corporate coaching and a natural love of rugby, stemming back to his days growing up in Zimbabwe.

Training & experience...

I spent several years training as an executive coach through Wilsher coaching and change leadership college. Simon Wilsher and I co-designed and delivered change management and performance coaching programmes for clients such as Visa Europe, Nationwide, Monitise, M&S, Inspecs and Paradigm.

City life…

After several years, I decided it was time for a new adventure and in 2012 I moved to London to become Group Performance Director for Monitise (mobile payments sector). A year later I became European Client Director, delivering One Team High Performance ways of working in strategic partnerships with Visa Europe, RBS, TEF and Virgin Money.

Entrepreneurial instinct...

Using the wealth of experience I gained in the city, I decided to establish my own business in Bath in 2015, helping companies unlock natural talent within their teams. The result? I believe Transition 15 provides a fresh approach that cannot be replicated in a book.
