My name is Matthew Stibbe. I’m an entrepreneur, manager, marketer, writer, pilot, wine lover and geek. But not necessarily in that order.
I have been a geek all my life and a boss for the last 30 years. This blog is trying to make sense of it all. In public. One article at a time.
I believe that it is possible to build a business that is successful without being a bastard.
This blog is about refactoring management from a humane, geeky perspective. I’m learning to be a better manager in public and sharing what I know, one article at a time.
The media portrayal of ‘bosses’ gives the wrong impression. The bullying ego-maniac is not a good role-model. Empathy and respect are as important as decisiveness.
Geek culture offers a better alternative. Or at least one that works for me. It emphasises playfulness, experimentation, curiosity and meritocracy.
‘Me and this robot, that’s who!’
