“We brought in Matt to present on the morning of our last day, hoping he would energize what can be a somewhat sleepy crowd. Well, he more than exceeded our expectations. Along with bringing a great stage energy and presence, his powerful story and message hit home with our audience. The buzz for the rest of the day was about his presentation. My only regret is that we didn’t have him open our event to start the week with all that hype. The CEO of our company was so blown away that we’re planning to hire him to train our home office. I would recommend him to anyone without hesitation!”

And his presentation style was spot on. He was engaging, moving, funny and energetic – all the things we look for in our keynote speakers. We appreciate all you did to make this happen.”

“Matt was great. I must say that he is one of the very few keynote speakers that really, really took time and effort to get to know exactly how he could help us with his presentation and actually used the information. He also made sure he knew how to refer to our attendees properly and use our biggest challenges in his examples throughout. We were very pleased and though our survey was just sent out a bit ago, we already have these specific references to him:

One was in reference to, ‘what did you like best about the overall event?’
Response: keynote address speaker Matt Mayberry

These were in response to, ‘please share any specific feedback on the general session presentations’
Response: Transformational speaker was phenomenal.
Response: I thought Transformational Leadership was very good and was my personal favorite.
Response: Keynote guy very good”

“Matt delivers an emotionally charged, motivational and inspirational speech. I’ve been to many “motivational” speeches over the years but I’ve never left one so inspired to take immediate action, until now.Matt simplifies goal setting with a “do it now” call to action. He leaves you with the takeaways we all desire from attending any program. While he was given amazing athletic ability, I believe he was put on this earth not to entertain us as an NFL linebacker, but to teach life lessons that inspire and change lives.”

To wrap up Matt’s presentation in a few words: Knocked it out of the park.”
