More help from the author, Matthew Leitch

I am an independent consultant and researcher working in the field of internal control and risk management. As such I get involved in a wide range of projects, large and small. This page describes only those services that are educational, because that is the main purpose of Managed Luck. (For information about other services please visit

Use of materials from Managed Luck

The main use of materials on Managed Luck is as content for a corporate intranet website. However, things have also been used for training purposes. If you have an idea that is not mentioned in the price list please get in contact anyway.

Help building your intranet site

These days is it possible to have a credible management programme without a website? I don't think so. Intranet sites are also easy to do and can help reinforce the message your team is giving the rest of the organisation. I'll never forget the excitement I felt when I first learned that people were actually visiting my websites and reading my work!

Over the last couple of years I have gradually expanded my websites and included more complex interactivity. I've updated my programming skills to squeeze more out of HTML, Javascript, and Perl. For example, would you believe that a simple web page can simulate an audit interview, a manufacturing company, or a stress therapist?

If you're wondering what you could do with a web site, and what it would involve, let's talk and see what ideas we can come up with.

Speeches and presentations

I give speeches about internal control etc to meet people or for a fee. Usually I write the speech and create the presentation specifically for the event. I recently travelled to speak at a large training symposium in Arizona and the hosts were kind enough to write later describing my presentation as "superb."

Thought provoking educational events - the Working Seminar

These events are not training. Training is where participants are expected to agree with what they are told and practice skills as prescribed. Often that is not appropriate. I aim to stimulate thought, to offer ideas (lots of them), to create experiences that lead to new discoveries, and to give people time to decide what they really think.

This is ideal where participants are already highly knowledgeable and self confident. The most common feedback I get about my work is "insightful" and "thought provoking."
