"Confidence comes not from always being right but from not fearing to be wrong"

Investment Investment


The Investment industry is working under extreme pressure and tight deadlines, in order to provide credible advice, with an ethical approach, while safeguarding outstanding clients’ relationships.
The recruitment of capital markets and investment banking professionals must be accompanied by a complete Human Resources Management strategy for employee engagement, motivation and retention in a competitive international market. Investment professionals must be up-to-date with required technical skills, as well as strong leadership skills, communication and negotiation skills, conflict resolution and stress management.
Training people is an integral part of the competitive advantage of every Organization, in every industry.

Cultural Transformation Tools® or CTT

View herein my CTT Practitioner Diploma

“Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything” – George Bernard Shaw

Engaged and inspired by culture throughout my experience, I became a CTT Practitioner in 2015, accredited to interpret and use the CTT Models and Tools. As a Member of the global CTT Community network, I share experiences and discuss case studies with my fellow Change and Transformational Agents around the world.
This is a great opportunity for you to partner with a Certified Consultant who will guide you throughout your Cultural Transformation journey.


Created by Richard Barrett, an internationally recognized Author, Consultant and keynote Speaker on Corporate Culture and Values-Based Leadership, the Cultural Transformation Tools® (CTT) have been used to map the values of thousands of organizations and leaders in over 90 countries in their transformational journeys.
Measurement matters and what gets measured gets managed and done. The Cultural Transformation Tools® are powerful metrics that enable Leaders to actively measure and manage the culture of their teams, leaders and the Organization as a whole. This is one of the most detailed and comprehensive cultural diagnostics and values assessment instruments available.  


Each person is driven consciously or unconsciously by its own set of values, thus, our decisions and emotional drivers reflect our values. “Individuals express their values through their personal behaviours; organizations express their values through their cultural behaviours” – Richard Barrett, Pleuntje van Meer.


The reason is simple: by building a high-performance culture, “you will increase profits, attract and keep talented people, build brand loyalty and a resilient, sustainable company”.
Once you chose your values as an Organization, you embed these in every behaviour, policy, procedure, system and goals.  “The culture of an organization defines who you are and what you stand for. Vibrant cultures are values-driven, mission-focused and vision-guided”.


Here is the critical equation:

  • Values and behaviours drive culture.
  • Culture drives employee fulfilment.
  • Employee fulfilment drives mission.
  • The Mission drives customer satisfaction.

Therefore and based on values mapping of over 2000 institutions in more than 60 countries, “Values-driven organizations are the most successful organizations on the planet” – Richard Barrett, Pleuntje van Meer.

You can view herein the Case Study of Focus Consulting Group: "Leadership and Culture in the Investment Industry" - 2001.

Testimonial related to the workshop: "The Talent of Public Speaking"

"I attended the Talent of Public Speaking workshop held by Muriel Matta, which I thoroughly enjoyed. All my life I dreaded speaking in public, until I attended Muriel’s workshop. I discovered that after only one seminar,  I am now able to stand up and speak in public thanks to her excellent training, on this subject matter. Thank you Muriel, I will never forget your very interesting, interactive and inspiring workshop! You have a good training technique!"
