Shine Workplace Wellbeing launched in spring 2018 and since then we’ve helped companies of all sizes in all sectors improve the health and happiness of their workforce, enhancing business performance as a result.  

Clients benefit from our core team of senior consultants who are experts in their field – read more about their credentials below. And we partner with other consultants and businesses we know and trust when the brief requires it.

We are based in London’s Kennington Park (just by Oval station) and advise and support businesses across the UK. 

Matthew Carlton, Founder

In 2017, Matthew gave up a career in marketing to pursue his passion for exercise and wellbeing, retrained and began studying workplace wellbeing. He identified a growing demand to help companies support both the physical and mental wellbeing of their employees – and SWW was born!  Matthew regularly shares his workplace wellbeing expertise in the media and at industry events, where he is known for his insightful and upbeat approach. He oversees client programmes at Shine and is constantly looking for new, innovative ways to help companies create better workplaces where employees can thrive.

Catherine Burn, Junior Consultant

After graduating from Birkbeck, University of London in 2020 with a masters in Organisational Psychology, Catherine has a passion for wellbeing in the workplace, particularly work-life balance. Her postgraduate dissertation investigated the experiences of employees working from home during the COVID-19 lockdown, how they managed to keep a balance between home and work, and how this made them feel. She practices what she preaches, and loves to spend her non-work time doing active mindfulness pursuits like open water swimming. 

Nigel Pacey, Workshop Facilitator 

Nigel helps Shine’s clients to embed a wellbeing culture in their organisations, by ensuring senior management understand the benefits of a happy, healthy workforce.
