Matthew Armstead's facilitation and training is grounded in Training for Change's experiential methodology that acknowledges the benefit of learning from past successes and challenging self-limiting beliefs within a group. His style incorporates arts, spirituality, and a commitment to liberation as he supports groups to make powerful social change.
