About Geek Boss

Matthew Stibbe and Robot at Studio Ghibli museumMy 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.

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.

I’m CEO at Articulate Marketing  and Turbine and long ago at Intelligent Games. Co-founder at Vincarta. I blog about aviation at Golf Hotel Whiskey and Forbes.
