Meet our team of change makers!
In our work we believe that the people who are most affected by a problem should be the ones most involved in finding an appropriate solution. This means that the people we work with are the most important part of our team on any specific project. The decisions we make at United Edge must be informed by our clients.
As we grow we aim to continue this philosophy so that we can cultivate leadership without hierarchy, independence without silos and cooperation without acquiescence. We keep a flat structure, and we invest in our people. This keeps us current, responsive and effective.
Our team are deeply passionate, highly skilled and widely experienced. Most importantly we practice what we preach. Our work isn’t 9-to-5. It's how we live our lives -- every single day.
We regularly bring in support from specific experts, designers, change makers and researchers, but here are our full-time team.
Matt specializes in facilitating cooperation and partnership between change makers as well as strategy development, learning and accountability. In a career spanning six continents and thousands of years (from publishing ancient Aramaic texts to designing learning strategies of the future), Matt has a varied social science research background and drive for impactful communication. He has supported the work of numerous social change organisations, from grassroots community groups to large networks of the world's leading humanitarian agencies. He is passionate about humanitarian action, progressive policy making, financing reform and innovation, as well as going vegan and good coffee.
Having first built his expertise in programme design and child rights, Daniel specializes in participatory approaches, client-led programming, capacity building, training, and monitoring and evaluation. He is deeply passionate about systemic change, social justice and critical thinking. Daniel has worked with partners as varied as governments, child and youth groups, the UN, academic institutions, activists, INGOs and affected communities. He is a strong advocate for exploring alternative models to development and is particularly interested in alternative economics and shared ownership initiatives, as well as nature, architecture and good music.
“I have never seen someone apply as much perseverance and passion as the two directors of United Edge. I’m writing that in permanent ink.”
