Simply put, Matt was one of the best, if not THE best, keynote we've ever had. Our President challenged me to find a speaker who would reinforce the "fun and recognition as business accelerators" message. He pronounced it "perfect."

"He was fantastic! We were giving standing ovations all day long even after he left!"

"Nice interaction with the crowd, high energy."
