“To say that Matt was well received by all in attendance would be an understatement. In the past we have had Congressmen, an Attorney General and authors to name a few, and Matt’s presentation sits at the top of the list. The ‘buzz’ Matt created was incredible. Not only did his message resonate with the audience, but the style and way he delivered his presentation was captivating. Young or old, man or woman, Matt’s message appealed to everyone.” – Rick Baron, Hewlett-Packard

“Matt, I wanted to thank you for spending time with my sales team this morning.  The team really appreciated the change of pace.  You hit on some key drivers that when coming from an outside influence, becomes more impactful than hearing it from the same sales leader each week.  To be specific, the team appreciated the stories of perseverance, mental and physical health, and lastly, how you approach other organizations to solve their problems.  It became very relatable.  I would recommend that any organization that is under stress or anticipating change, to spend time chatting with you to understand how they can refresh their approach to business.” – Jamie B. Strauss, T-Mobile
