Matthew Johnston

Technical delivery consultant

I have over 30 years of IT-related experience in various roles. I started my career at IBM as a developer, before becoming an independent consultant for several years, working for different companies. I then spent eleven years at Morgan Stanley on various projects, including the Google IPO and an initiative that built the analytics engine for institutional and retail books. 

At ThoughtWorks, I enjoy leading tech projects and am passionate about equitable and inclusive technology. 

I'm also a disability champion and see inclusive technology as essential to help drive a socially and economically just world.

I'm a Trustee of Stagetext, a charity in the UK that provides captioning and live subtitling services to cultural events and venues. 

I'm also on Scope's Big Hack Advisory Board to support people working in tech to embrace inclusive design as a culture and practice.  

I am profoundly deaf since birth.
