    “Matt delivers an emotionally charged, motivational and inspirational speech. I’ve been to many “motivational” speeches over the years but I’ve never left one so inspired to take immediate action, until now.  Matt simplifies goal setting with a “do it now” call to action. He leaves you with the takeaways we all desire from attending any program. While he was given amazing athletic ability, I believe he was put on this earth not to entertain us as an NFL linebacker, but to teach life lessons that inspire and change lives.”

    “First Heritage Credit is a financial services provider with 85 branches located in 5 states. The meeting that we asked Matt to speak at was our annual Branch Managers Meeting and awards ceremony. Every level of Management from Branch Manager up through CEO was in attendance. Matt’s presentation and his message was absolutely great. Several times I took a look around the room to gauge the impact that he was having on our audience. His audience, our entire Management Team, was hanging on his every word. At the end of his presentation he received a very warm standing ovation! It is as if Matt knew exactly what I would like for them to hear and he delivered it with passion!”

    —First Heritage Credit


    " Matt has a very special way of energizing and empowering audiences. His speaking style is humble enough to engage you into his personal story while giving you a sense of urgency to get up and get big things done. One of the best that I have seen!
    —Farm Bureau Financial Services


    “Matt’s passion, sincerity and honesty of his journey connected with our team immediately.  He inspired each individual with not only his personal story but also through his practical exercises to go to work on themselves daily and think about what that impact would have on the overall organization. With his strategic goal setting plan (which the whole room wrote down) and engagement with the audience, we all walked away inspired to become the best version of ourselves and grow as an organization.”

    —Collins Community Credit Union


    “Matt brought a lot of energy and enthusiasm to his presentation. Our sales team was re-energized and able to take away key ideas and strategies from Matt’s presentation that will increase our performance. Matt took the time prior to his presentation to really understand our company and implement specialized content in his speech. To wrap up Matt’s presentation in a few words: Knocked it out of the park.”

    —DuPont


    “Right away, Matt connected with our group with his passion and sincerity. His personal story is gripping, powerful and inspirational in its own right. Looking for a great keynote speaker can be a daunting task, but Matt was an absolute home run in this regard! Our group left Matt’s presentation inspired, energized and armed with practical strategies that we could apply to our own lives immediately. Thank you Matt!”
