Matthew Bartolo's long journey of trying and testing different careers made him an international public speaker and trainer in sexuality education, sex and relationship psychotherapy, and business and management coaching. His growing dedication to these fields reflects his love for developing strong bonds between people, supporting colleagues in their clinical work, and enabling leaders and business owners through smart business plans. For Bartolo, this was a long and varied journey.
