  • Matt spoke at our recent conference and did an outstanding job and was in fact the highest ranked presenter out of over 20 speakers. His use of real world lessons blended with practical tips on how to not only dream about your goals but how to build a detailed plan and process to actually achieve those goals was impressive and inspirational. In addition he has a rare ability to connect and relate his life lessons to attendees in a way that makes them very relevant and easy to relate to – this ability significantly enhances the attendees experience and sets Matt apart. I would highly recommend him to anyone considering a motivational/inspirational speaker and we look forward to having him speak at future AA-ISP events.

  • When listening to a speaker I want a few things to show prominently. First, I need passion. Second, I need knowledge. Finally, for the third basics I look for in a speaker, I need that person to be a motivator. After speaking alongside Matt Mayberry and Stedman Graham at Barrington High School, I’m sold on Matt’s ability to orally display all three disciplines. Matt’s ability to entertain, motivate, and educate is a unique quality that he possesses.

  • Every once in a while, if you are very lucky, you find an inspirational speaker who can not only rally the troops, but rewrite the rules of battle in your favor. When we invited Matt Mayberry to speak at our Chamber’s luncheon, we thought we were getting a typical motivational presenter who’d give us a few words of wisdom wrapped up in a good bit of storytelling. What we got instead was a four-star general with a thousand-yard stare and more “motivation DNA” than those with twice his age and experience. Our guests swarmed Matt after his keynote, filled our inboxes with messages of gratitude for days after the lunch, and still continue to light up their social media networks with Matt’s highly quotable marching orders. What began as a dream to welcome a former Chicago Bear to our community has turned into a paradigm shift in goal-setting and commitment-keeping for our members. Matt Mayberry isn’t a minor celebrity. He’s a thought leader in the realm that matters most – growing through all obstacles to become the best version of yourself.

    Heather Ennis, President and CEO of NWI Forum
  • Matt Mayberry provides great inspiration and motivation for people of all ages. He connects on a personal level regardless of the size of the audience. Listeners are spellbound as Matt motivates them to reach their full potential.
