Hi, I'm Frances Odera Matthews, Founder of The Notion Bar

I'm a Certified Notion Consultant, Coach (Private & Group) & Template Builder, working remotely in the UK.

As a Notion Expert, I basically add sanity into your professional and/or personal life by unpacking your problems and building out bespoke digital solutions on Notion.

I know how teams/people 'work' - I'm a seasoned design-thinker with project management experience in many industries. I'm also passionate about advocating for underexposed tech communities

I specialise in Notion dashboards, products, templates and werkflows optimised for UI and UX. I build mass-market and bespoke digital solutions/products that extend what Notion should look like, feel like and be!

What makes me tick? Open and find out

- A '96 baby who's not quite Gen-Z, not quite millennial. - A girl from many countries who's also lived/studied/worked in a bunch of countries. - A seasoned design-thinker obsessed with aesthetics. All of this manifests with me constantly building 'things'. My first product was my own magazine aged 7 (or so?!), made by cutting out other magazines. Now, I build digital products (check out my templates) using Notion as my canvas and I'm constantly testing how far I can push the boundaries. In full circle, I've moved on from cutting up physical magazines (although, I think I want to get back into scrapbooking!) I was the creator of the Notion-Zine - the template that inspired The Notionette!

  • My go-tos are 90s - 2000s R&B, afrobeats, reggaeton and 70s-80s soul/disco.
