Over the years, Matthew has developed speeches and/or coached speakers for a variety of prestigious venues, including the Economic Club of Detroit, the National Press Club, Houston Forum, Cleveland City Club, SuperComm, the Microsoft CEO Summit, and the UN General Assembly.

The author of HabitForce! How to Kick the Habits of F.A.I.L.U.R.E. and Adopt the Habits of S.U.C.C.E.S.S., Matthew conducts customized “Harness Your HabitForce!” workshops and presentations for a variety of audiences, including corporations, associations, students and at-risk youth, professional and educational organizations, and community groups.

1)  The Joy of Speaking:   Turn Stage Fright Into Stage Delight and  Speak Your Way to the Peak

Speaking to audiences is a widely recognized leadership and success skill.  But far too many people — even those in leadership positions — often feel uncomfortable on the podium, hampered by some degree of trepidation, anxiety, or outright fear.  The missing ingredient in most presentations is what I call “The Joy Factor.”  I thought you’d want to see my recent interview with public speaking guru TJ Walker specifically about The Joy of Speaking!

2)  SUCCESS Is An Inside Job:  Avoid FAILURE Traps, Get on the SUCCESS Track, and Reach Your Peak Personal Potential

Built around two seven-letter acronyms — SUCCESS and FAILURE — my empowering keynote (or workshop) provides an easily remembered structure that magnifies its potential to transform behavior and produce lasting, life-changing results.  I reveal how to:

  • Employ “The Six Axioms of Personal Empowerment” to make lasting changes in your life.
  • Follow the Three Rs (Recognize, Reject and Replace) to reprogram your HabitForce – which I call your Personal Operating System – so it works for you, not against you.
  • Avoid FAILURE Traps and Get On The SUCCESS Track.  

 

3)  The Power of Making a Promise:  Make A Promise. Keep Your Word. Change Your Life.  Transform The World.

I recently launched the first annual “Make A Promise Day” (May 4th) and an online interview program called “What’s Your Promise?” featuring guests who share their personal stories about promises made and promises kept.  (

Here are just a few high-profile examples of The Power of Making a Promise in action:   Oprah Winfrey made a promise to Nelson Mandela that she would build a school for girls in South Africa.  Nancy Brinker, founder of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, made a promise to her beloved sister and breast cancer victim Suzy that she would create awareness and help find a cure for breast cancer.  Greg Mortensen, author of Three Cups of Tea, made a promise to build a school in rural Pakistan.
