GrowEQ is made up of a team of outstanding individuals who are experts in their field:
Matt Murphy is a Consultant and Lead Auditor in:
- ISO 9001 Quality Management Systems.
- ISO 14001 Environmental Management Systems.
- ISO 45001 OHS Management Systems.
- Corporate Social Responsibility.
Matt has owned and managed small businesses for over 20 years. With a Bachelor of Veterinary Science from Sydney University, he has hands-on practical experience in dealing with all aspects of running a successful business.
“Running a veterinary hospital has given me the unique experience of dealing with incredibly complex medical and surgical cases, whilst still managing a thriving business. Without embedding successful systems and teams into all facets of the business you just cannot succeed. I think it has given me an amazing array of skills, as well as an absolute passion for the simple solution.”
Since moving into the consulting and auditing sphere, Matt has worked with businesses in industries as diverse as construction, food processing, agriculture, sports management, security, archaeology, labour hire . . . the list is long. He has conducted audits on, and on behalf of one-man businesses through to multinationals such as McDonalds, Apple, Coca Cola, L’Oréal, Woolworths and Coles.
In addition to being a Lead Auditor for ISO 9001, ISO 14001, and ISO 45001, Matt is a Certified Social Compliance Auditor (CSCA). This is the pinnacle of achievement awarded by the APSCA, the peak worldwide body for Social Compliance Auditors. As such Matt is one of only a handful of auditors in Australia to have achieved this accreditation.
Matt has also developed and maintained a multi-spectrum management system for turf farms, known as Turf Plus, and is the Administrator of the turf quality certification system TurfCert.
All this experience has led Matt to believe in a two-word motto when it comes to management systems for businesses: “Simplify it.”
“My goal, when helping a business to develop and maintain a management system, is to make it as painless as possible,” says Matt. “If I can break it down into its simplest form, then I know it will get maximum buy-in from management and staff. We all want our jobs and our lives to be simpler, I am passionate about making that happen.”
