Matt Church talks about:

  • The Thought Leadership Imperative - How clever people become commercially smart

The world has changed fundamentally in the last 10 years and dramatically in the past 6 months. A subtle shift in power and information accessibility has flipped the models for leadership in the organisational and entrepreneurial arenas. We are seeing crowded marketplaces, information overwhelmed clients and a massive loss of trust in the media.

These trend indicators all point to a new way to lead in business and life as a Thought Leader. Matt explores what Thought Leadership looks like in your world and how you can rise above the blandness of a cluttered marketplace and build differentiation by what you know and leveraging commercially.

  • The Inspired Leader - A 21st century look at motivational leadership

Winning hearts and minds has always been the leadership imperative. Today's new leaders need new techniques to increase engagement. Your team demands inspiration and leading thinking from their organisation's top people.

Successful organisations have leaders and teams that are inspired by what they do and what their work stands for. We used to be about systems, process, structure and hierarchy. We now see an emerging requirement for inspirational, creative thinking, consultative styles and effective partnering.

It's this ‘lit-up' quality of great leaders that sets them apart. The ability to be lit up and light up others is more science than art. You can learn it. It becomes a habit, a choice.

  • The Chemistry of Success - A lifestyle platform for success and fulfilment

Every feeling you have is driven by a chemical; if you can find the chemical, you can fix the feeling.
Anyone wanting to succeed in life or business knows that what happens in you can affect what happens around you. The Chemistry of Success is a highly entertaining session looking at the internal physical drivers of peak performance.

This highly engaging and entertaining keynote is based on Matt's international best-sellers Highlife 24/7, Adrenalin Junkies and Serotonin Seekers.

Client testimonials

I believe your message was extremely powerful and that you reinforced a consistent message tying in this year’s & last year’s presentations. Your effort in achieving this was very well received and had many farmers thinking long and hard about their lives; personally & professionally. I know for myself, the prioritization of core values has prompted me to change a number of things in my life, so thank you once again for your efforts; especially considering that not all people take to heed of a message that hits home.

World Dairy Leaders

Your presentation was excellent. You hit the spot and right through the weekend people were referring to "what Matt said". I appreciated having someone who I respect and trust to open our conference.

Macquarie Bank

The Feedback from the attendees on your session was fantastic. They were very positive about the underlying messages on managing yourself and the management of those chemicals that impact on our ability to function more effectively. The interest you generated through the tools you provided was very practical and I am sure your website has had quite a few hits from Thiess employees. To bring the sense of humour to the subject and your effective delivery style certainly engaged the audience. It was amazing to see 230 predominantly male engineers singing in harmony under your guidance, something that has to be appreciated. Hopefully they are all getting better sleep. Continue to enjoy delivering these important messages. Hopefully we will be able to work together in the future.


Inspiring! Motivational talks generally lead to nothing once you get back in the office, but this one focused on science and ideas that you can definitely work on over a long period.

In this industry, sometimes we get so busy preparing for the next event that we forget to enjoy the experience and reap our rewards. I would like to say that one of the rewards is the opportunity to work with a professional like you. On behalf of the Program Development Committee and the entire membership of the Million Dollar Round Table, thank you for your efforts, enthusiasm and contribution to the success of the 2005 Annual Meeting in New Orleans.

I have to say that Matt was absolutely AMAZING!!! He totally wowed our people ... in fact they are still talking about him! His calm, creative and fun approach truly the entire session together. In short, he's spectacular!

Thank you for your extraordinary presentation. You held a captive audience. Your humour and sense of timing worked extremely well. Feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.

… I would suggest that Matt would be in the upper echelon of presenters based on both the audience response and feedback that we received on his presentation. Following the initial presentation many of our delegates shuffled the rest of their day to be able to attend the subsequent session that Matt ran noting that it was too important to miss both from a content and presentation basis. From a client perspective I do not think that we could have engaged a more professional and personable speaker.

Advanced Professional Solutions

We received fantastic feedback on not only Matt's sessions but also in his capacity as MC for each Training Day. The success of our training days would not have happened without Matt there to keep the day up beat and engaging for the audience. Matt did a significant amount of work with our presenters as well which was highly recognised and provided presenters with some very useful skills for future training days
