Trench Talk is hosted by award-winning plumber Matt Reynolds based out of Melbourne. Primarily in interview format, you’ll hear from interesting people including industry insiders, leaders and celebrities who share the critical lessons they feel have helped them carve out a career and master their own trade. From the unique perspective of a local tradesman, this format is wide as we discuss all things business and self-improvement. Think tools, tips and strategies from high-level achievers. Matt is a plumber, not a trained media personality, so if you prioritise action and practicality over polished professionalism, you’ve plugged into the right place.
