Our Backgroud

iMatter was established by Karyn Sansom having worked with  organisations and groups such as Primary and Secondary Engineer, Leaders Awards Programs, Institute of Engineer and Technology and Independent schools  introducing and developing children and young peoples through engagement with engineering, promoting engineering careers and supporting group events in schools such as Mock Interviews, and confidence building skills.

Concerned by the lack of access to personal, impartial, confidential life skills coaches and mentors for children and young people; the pressures faced through social media and the growing , heart wrenching trend of suicides amongst our universities graduates.  iMatter aims to prepare its clients for life’s challenges and opportunities providing a sounding board for children and young adults between the ages of 10 through to university with critical independent, confidential tools, tips and advice they need to unlock their potential and grow into confident adults.
