Accountability and Resiliency
Matthew delivers a fast paced, often outrageously funny keynote presentation. Matthew will have your team belly laughing. He will also be laser focused on bringing up tough leadership discussions. Topics like; organizational mental health, suicide, overcoming leadership failures and a variety of difficult discussions that nobody really wants to acknowledge or discuss.
Matthew is an authority on recognizing leadership failures, organizational mental health awareness issues and helping discuss why your supervisors fail to use their given authority to have difficult discussions with their employees. This inability to act by your leadership team reduces the organization’s productivity, and your investment!
