Matthew Wright-Simon

Welcome to our new member Matthew Wright-Simon, one of Adelaide’s super connected super-connectors and changemaker champion. Matthew is well known to many in Adelaide, bringing communities and leadership together with TEDxAdelaide, Newday Leadership, the South Australian Social Enterprise Council, and through his consultancy in strategy and engagement and his many appearances on stage as an emcee or facilitator.

Matthew, a fellow of the Governor’s Leadership Foundation program and winner of Pro Bono Australia’s Impact 25 Award, for his ‘significant contribution to positive social change’.

Matthew is no stranger to the power of collective giving circles, having been a trustee with the Awesome Foundation’s Adelaide chapter since its 2015 inception and its ‘Dean’ since 2020. Every month this group provides $1,000 for grassroots projects, helping support and highlight a bit of extra awesomeness for
the community.

Matthew says;

Love what I have seen of the support Impact 100 has given to South Australian charities and social enterprises. I’d like to be involved and see how we can grow the giving community here in SA.
