The thing we have loved most is the tenacity and determination of these guys. If you want something done Momentum finds a way to deliver. Put simply our project involving new changerooms and a new clubhouse would not have happened if Momentum was not involved.
John and Deb Coulter, President & Secretary, Ormeau Junior Rugby League Football Club.
I have known Matt for approximately ten years and have worked with him and his company, Momentum, on several sport and community projects over that time. Matt is a consummate professional with a unique skill of balancing the needs of multiple stakeholders, understanding what the best outcomes are for his clients and facilitating an environment where these outcomes are achieved in a methodical and collaborative manner.
His strong understanding of governmental processes on both a local, state and federal level, as well as his connections to local decision makers across all tiers of government, makes his involvement a critical part of the success of any project he is involved in and is one of the key reasons behind his impressive strike rate with grant applications. Above all, Matt is a tireless advocate for his clients. He dispenses his role with integrity and passion that makes working with him such a pleasure.
I am very happy to recommend Matt and Momentum to any client group looking for a rewarding and seamless experience on their next project.
Paul Coory, Managing Director, COHA Group.
I have worked with Matt Fitzpatrick recently on a major project for one of my corporate clients. His consultancy work during the course of this project was of an extremely high level, low touch and all dealings professional. Matt has gone above and beyond expectations for my client and has been integral in the continued development of their sporting facilities.
Personally, I would recommend Matt to any organisation looking at a major project.
John Beazley, Business Banking Manager - Corporate Finance Commonwealth Bank
Matthew and his team from Momentum have been a great asset to our club and have helped us fulfil our obligations with Logan Council in the completion of our clubs strategic plan to enable us to comply with grant funding requirements. They took all the stress out of dealing with the Council red tape and not to mention the time to complete their toolkits as part of the clubs obligations.
Momentum were instrumental in securing over $160,000 worth of funding for our lighting upgrade that has now enabled us to have night games and also run a touch and tag comp. We can't thank Matthew and his team enough and would highly recommend their services to any club, group or organisation wanting to move their organisation in the right direction.
Luke Shephard, Beenleigh JRLFC.
I would like to acknowledge Momentum's great support in helping us achieve funding through the Department of Sport and Recreation to enable us to light our school ovals and to build our high quality amenities and change rooms – work to the value of over $800 000.
Your work in assisting with the development of our submissions and your ability to facilitate the work that needed to be done to quantify our partnership with North Rugby League and to achieve the required letters of support was exceptional. We will certainly look to Momentum to support us with future funding applications. I have no doubt without your guidance and support we would not have achieved our objective.
Jeff Major, Principal, Wavell State High School
This is to confirm the position of the QRL – South East Queensland Division to support and endorse Momentum's Club One initiative. In recent times the Division has been working with Momentum so as to support affiliated clubs throughout the region, with the ultimate aim being to assist volunteers in building and sustaining vibrant, healthy and successful clubs.
The Division has no hesitation in recommending Club One for any club looking to adopt this initiative.
Michael Pease, QRL - SEQ Division Manager.
Mitchelton FC has been working with Momentum for the past 4 years. I have found their service to be invaluable in helping our club secure several grants ranging from funding for a Strategic Plan to $35,000 for a canteen fitout, right up to consecutive $100,000 grants for major lighting improvements and a water harvesting/ irrigation project.
Momentum has an intimate knowledge of the grant funding process which has helped our club move forward at a great rate.
Roger McIntosh, President, Mitchelton FC
Matt Fitzpatrick has been a tireless worker as a consultant for our club for over 10 years. Matt and the team at Momentum have been a mainstay in the progressive growth of the Redcliffe Dolphins facilities. Matt is professional, polite, extremely knowledgeable in accessing grants from a variety of sources especially government grants.
I highly recommend Matt to any organisation wishing to forge ahead by improving their facilities.
Tony Murphy, Chief Executive Officer, Redcliffe Dolphins Group
As retiring President I want to thank you both for the tremendous assistance that you have provided in preparing the 5 Year Club Development Plan, preparation of various Grant applications and project management works on the Club's behalf.
Personally it has been a pleasure to be associated with you both and I believe it was one of the Club's best moves in choosing your Company to be our consultants. I trust that this arrangement will continue to our mutual future benefit.
Bob Healy, President, Corinda Bowls Club.
What an awesome program! We have ticked off a lot of big ticket items... all through the Club One program which was funded by a grant. I can't thank the Momentum team enough for all their support.
Deb Sellin, President - Dayboro & Districts Junior Rugby League.
Brothers Leagues Club (Ipswich) has used the specialist services of Momentum for a number of years with significant success. Over one and a half million dollars in funding has been obtained for our Kindred Clubs at Brothers Ipswich.
The development of our highly anticipated sporting complex is now complete as a result of two successful grant applications which were compiled and submitted by Momentum. This complex was developed on a greenfield site with a considerable number of town planning issues. Without Momentum guiding us through these matters I doubt whether our vision would have been realised.
Whether the application was for $1,000 or $300,000 the same high level of commitment and professionalism from Matthew and the team at Momentum was always provided.
I have no hesitation in recommending the services of Momentum as their contribution to the ongoing viability of our Kindred Clubs has been invaluable.
Mark Hennelly, General Manager, Brothers Leagues Club Ipswich Inc.
After years of disappointment in this area we decided we needed an expert in the field and are over the moon to say we just received a major lighting grant plus three smaller grants thanks to Matt and his team at Momentum.
Bob Mulley, President, Brothers Cairns RLFC
Fraser Coast Rugby League is grateful to you for the professional way you have handled this process for Fraser Coast. Thanks do not seem enough. Many thanks for allowing us to use your knowledge to support the development of Eskdale Park. The place will never be the same.
Carmel Brown, Fraser Coast Rugby League
Matt, you did it - we have an approval letter for the outdoor area and canteen improvements grant you did for Warwick Cricket Association. A big thanks - this means a heap to me and WCA and for the future of our sport in Warwick. Brilliant work!
Col O'Brien President, Warwick Cricket Association.
The Momentum team is well established in the sport and recreation sector in Queensland and can draw from a vast network to ensure that education packages are developed with the clubs interests at heart.
I have no hesitation in recommending Momentum as an excellent candidate to mentor club representatives.
Grant Cleal CEO, Redcliffe Dolphins and former Dolphins coach and premiership player.
Matthew recently assisted the Albany Creek Swim Club with the development of its strategic plan for the next five years.
Matthew's focus, passion and enthusiasm were evident to all of the club's committee members in attendance during the planning workshop. The resultant thoroughness and quality of the finalised strategic plan surpassed all of the committee's expectations.
It was a pleasure to work with Matthew and I would highly recommend Matthew and Momentum Sport Recreation and Health Consultants to any other sporting club or organisation in need of his services.
John Redd, President, Albany Creek Swim Club
I have known Matthew since 2009. Since this time he has worked with groups within our network and achieved significant results.
John Ribot, Executive Chairman of Queensland Clubs Management, Former State of Origin and International Rugby League player, Former Brisbane Broncos CEO and founder of the Melbourne Storm.
Thank you for your efforts in getting this application finalised in such a comprehensive and professional fashion. Our committee's decision that we didn't have the expertise to complete it in house and needed to engage professional consultants has been vindicated by the standard of work from you all.
The goodwill and energy generated in our committee and each sports individual committees and hierarchy has been amazing and has lifted the overall project significantly.
Justin Butler President, Whitsunday Sportspark.
Matt's professionalism produced timely applications with little to no work required by club member to complete the full application package.
Peter Marsh, President, Redcliffe Outrigger Canoe Club.
You have contributed so much to sport on the Peninsula both within the Council re policy decision and planning, and also with our many sporting organisations who I know will sorely miss your advice and support. We certainly have achieved a tremendous amount since you have been with us.
Your initiative of the budget funding for clubs has been an outstanding success and I am sure those clubs who benefited are extremely grateful. Your knowledge of grant funding will also be missed. I have enjoyed our working relationship and thank you sincerely for your efforts.
Cr Rita Smith, Former Deputy Mayor – Redcliffe City Council.
