From this epiphany, Deri created the Strategy on a Page methodology.

Matthias was born in Germany. In a past life he was a Musician, an Actor, Screen Writer and basically just an all round “creative dude”. His rock star style and good looks initially lead him to be an accomplished physiotherapist “back in the Fatherland”. Until 2009 when Matthias moved to London and found a job running a chain of Cafes. It was here he soon discovered that as a creative while “you can take the boy out of Germany, but you can't take Germany out of the boy.” Yes indeed, that old German efficiency ran through his blood and with just one sniff of bookkeeping and numbers, he was off. Apparently it seems that numbers, quadratic equations and efficient systems pump through Matthias' veins. Quite helpful if you run a business and especially for BGI.
