About Me

Matt Greenough is the former Chief Special Adviser to the Welsh Government. In addition to being the top adviser on policy and media, Matt wrote all of Carwyn Jones' political key-note speeches in the last five years, and drafted many of his key Governmental remarks - from academic lectures about the future of the U.K. constitution, to tweets about football, and everything in-between.

Prior to becoming the chief special advisor, Matt held senior posts in Government advising on media and strategic communications, and in education policy.

He has worked on successive and successful UK and Welsh General Election campaigns, and the referendum on further powers for the National Assembly for Wales.



Matt is the best speechwriter I have ever worked with. He has a way with words and even as a practised speaker I always felt more confident when I stepped on stage with a script he’d produced.

RtHon Carwyn Jones First Minister of Wales 2009-2018
