Played by Matthew Hussey
Matt Hussey serves as a matchmaker on "Ready for Love," NBC’s innovative and dramatic new relationship show about making real connections.
Hussey’s rise to success as a motivational speaker has been meteoric. From humble beginnings working as a life coach with individual clients in London’s coffee shops and cafes, Hussey now runs programs across the globe, helping thousands of men and women reach their true performance potential. In packed conference rooms in New York and London, or on week-long retreats in luxury locations in Europe and America, Hussey and his team have created tailor-made programs designed to help clients transform their lives. Hussey’s private clients, through his life-coaching brand, have included directors of major FTSE 500 companies, hedge-fund managers, royalty and celebrities such as Christina Aguilera, whom he worked with personally in July 2011. His corporate clients include Hugo Boss, The Perfume Shop, Virgin Gyms, Proctor & Gamble, Bare Escentuals, U.S. legal giant Weil, Gotshal & Manges, and global management consultants Accenture.
Hussey has even lectured at Oxford University to the Department of Neuroethics. He has rooted his business in private coaching work, which has often focused on confidence issues that impacted relationships. As a result, he began to gain recognition helping men with their love lives. For two years, this became a major focus of his work, and he conducted several hundred seminars for large groups of men on this subject, as well as coaching many more men on a one-to-one basis. As his reputation grew, Hussey found himself approached by increasing numbers of women, eager to hear what he had learned about the male perspective on love and romance. In 2008, Hussey created his new program, GetTheGuy, focusing exclusively on relationships and aimed solely at women. The brand established Hussey as one of the leading experts in the field of human attraction in the U.K. and U.S.
Now, through his DVDs, his viral Internet broadcasts, his sell-out ‘Secrets of Attraction’ seminars, his weekend group workshops and his roster of private clients, he has been able to pass on his insights and strategies to countless more women. 50,000 women have attended his live events and he has reached over 4 million online. Hussey is the new international guru of the dating and relationship-coaching scene.
