Matt was able to relate to our audience and keep them engaged while conveying important messages about the “choices that lead to greatness.” He is a dynamic and energetic speaker. I was impressed with his uncanny sense to hit home with the audience in a very personal and inspirational way- both on the stage to the large group and during the autograph session and the one-on-one conversations.
