Finally, for the third basics I look for in a speaker, I need that person to be a motivator.

Matt’s ability to entertain, motivate, and educate is a unique quality that he possesses.

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.
