“If you’re looking for an inspiring speaker that will truly make a difference in the lives of your attendees, I highly recommend Will Matthews. Will spoke recently to the Hospitality Sales & Marketing Association in Colorado Springs. His message of Living Boldly through five components of success were especially relevant to this group of hospitality professionals. He asks compelling questions that encourage a deep dive which lead to personal transformation for our audience. Being grateful, expressing resiliency & breaking through old patterns of behavior were just a few of the disciplines he shared. This talk was tailor made for an industry hit especially hard by the Pandemic. Thank you Will for sharing how we can each transform our life to accomplish anything. ”

“We brought Will Matthews into speak at ASA Staffing World, our premier national conference. Not only was he the Subject Matter Expert we were looking for, not only did he have the presentation skills and content that kept our audience fully engaged, not only is Will very likable and charismatic, but from start to finish he was a complete pleasure to work with. Several attendees said that Will was the best speaker of the convention. I can’t think of anybody else that brings that mindset and subject matter expertise of coaching, leadership and professional development. Of course we are going to continue this partnership with Will. ”

“I saw Will present at a conference and knew immediately that I wanted him to kick off our client appreciation event. Everyone was thrilled and engaged. We recommend Will for any conference or meeting.”
“Will delivered a highly impactful presentation to ISM-Pittsburgh members in December. Matthews Performance Group was highly recommended by a board member and Will's message on "Finding the Keys to Make This Year a Year of Profit, Professional Growth and Personal Joy" did not disappoint. His positive energy lifted attendees and made them feel empowered to make changes both personally and professionally in the new year. His material was clear, concise, and very transferrable. And, all attendees were provided additional resource materials to further assist them in achieving their goals. I would recommend Will to other professional organizations who want to provide quality, educational experiences and to inspire their members to create sustainable results while adopting a Warrior Mindset! Thank you Will, and thank you to your team for a stress-free, event booking experience.”

Meet Will Matthews
I feel for you. You have the enviable, or perhaps not so enviable, responsibility to find a great keynote speaker for your conference or meeting and everyone you talk to wants something different. Very stressful and sometimes you might feel like there is no way to win. Plus, what if the speaker you pick is terrible. Hard to say how many months or years you are going to have to hear about that decision.
I have been in your and your audience's shoes and having attended way too many conferences where the speakers were marginal at best, everyone had heard their content before and the energy in the room dropped to new lows.
I am committed to your success and to a game-changing experience for your audience. In "The Game You Must Win!" and my other keynotes, I blend what I have learned as an Ironman Triathlete, Business Executive and Professional Development Expert to help teams and individuals break through the fear that limits their performance and instead makes it possible to bring their full strength to the table. This results in higher performance, less friction, and a radical new "All-In" commitment level creating tremendous gains in culture and efficiency.
Unlike some speakers, what I share is not conjecture or theory about what creates professional success. Having been an Executive Coach since 2003, I've seen first hand what differentiates those who crush it in their careers from those who are frustrated and not getting the results they want. In my presentations, I pull back the curtain and reveal the specific patterns, sequence and accelerators that I have seen repeatedly deliver not only professional results and high-performing teams but also personal fulfillment.
You will be the star of the show in three easy steps...
Will and our team are excited to start the conversation with you
and share the details of your event
Relax and rest assured
...that you and your audience are going to enjoy a great keynote experience
