  • 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.
