Let's make your next conference rock

Matt Church is no ordinary presenter. He is the 2014/15 Australian Speaker of the Year and has recently been named one of the top ten motivational speakers in the world.

He is an instigator, motivator, disrupter, teacher, researcher, innovator and leader. What sets him apart from the field of speakers is the profound impact he has on an audience. He acts as a catalyst inspiring people to create real change. He is without a doubt one of the top professional conference speakers.

His special gift is his ability to reach into the audience, capture their attention, build their trust and kick start a process of change. People leave his sessions entertained, informed and inspired. Rarely does someone simply return to “business as usual” after seeing a Matt Church presentation. Matt’s topic list is diverse with something to suit any audience.

As the founder of Thought Leaders Global, Matt’s greatest love is the development of thought leadership. It’s an obsession which connects him closely to some of the brightest and most brilliant minds in Australia, and across the world. His close connection with industry leaders spans a broad range of markets and activities, and as a chosen mentor to many of those leaders, he is in the unique position to have a deep insight into an enormous variety of topics, issues, markets, industries, and challenges.

A prolific author, his publishing history is a demonstration of his polymathic nature, and his ability to draw from this incredibly diverse sphere of knowledge means he can often shed new light on a topic which an industry has “done to death”. From this space, he inspires people to think, expertly delivering key messages and weaving them together with narratives from a diverse range of sources. Many say his presentations are watershed moments in industry and business culture.

Helping Clever People be Commercially Smart

Matt’s presentation on thought leadership is the ideal catalyst for change. If you want to harness the intelligence within your organisation, this keynote will help the best and brightest shine even brighter. It will help to identify and release potential and also activate greater activity and innovation.

A thought leader is a leading authority in their field of expertise. They have access to a wealth of specialised knowledge which makes them uniquely valuable. They have collected information from varied and comprehensive sources and – most importantly – have packaged it so it can be effectively taught to others.

Whether they know it or not, organisations are driven by the opportunities created and discovered by the thought leaders within, and it’s important to realise that these abilities can be nurtured and developed.

There’s no rule book, no map for what it takes to be a thought leader. Matt Church, though, has come close, giving you a head start on what works.

An extremely engaging and motivational speaker. Matt’s infectious energy held the day together flawlessly for our audience. As a thought leader, Matt’s insight and take on insurance challenged the way we think about the future direction of our industry.


Such a powerful session! The feedback has been terrific, and your message was heard loud and clear. The team are speaking highly of you. Your delivery was exceptional. I am thrilled to be a member of this business – but more so now, because a bunch of people are keen to make a difference.


Matt was an exceptional speaker at our annual sales conference. Not only did he challenge the audience, he engaged them, provided humour and left us asking ourselves some tough questions on how we need to change and evolve to continue as a successful and growing organisation. After the presentation many managers referred to Matt’s session to keep and build momentum of the key messages. A true inspiration!


Matt was the highlight of the day and people are still talking about his session! I think there are few speakers on the circuit that give such great content, incredible passion and energy and make people laugh so much they are falling off their chairs! Honestly, Matt could do stand-up comedy, he is so funny. It was a pleasure working with him.


We toured Matt twice around the country to our network. He went the extra mile in pre planning, delivering on the day and follow up. Problem is we are now spoiled, no one even comes close to the professionalism and true thought leadership he provided, if we could use Matt at every event we would.

Matt’s approach is different to many working in this space he is able to challenge and inspire at the same time – brilliant. He really cuts through.


I can honestly say that Matt delivered the goods. The impact on the people was tremendous and the feedback on the session has been excellent, many labelling it as the best they have seen.


Matt was extremely well received by our clients and staff. All were highly engaged and discussion of the content and key messages continued outside of the conference room over dinner and breakfast. Many of our clients are familiar with Matt, having seen him three times now, however Matt managed to continue to engage them with relevant life and business topics and expand on ground he had covered in the past. Matt (and his team) are very thorough and organised, not to mention easy to work with.

Matt went above and beyond to ensure the clients felt at ease around him, including suggesting a more appropriate layout for the conference room that would encourage engagement and allow our clients to feel more comfortable.


Matt provided an energising and thought provoking presentation. He was extremely engaging and was the topic of many a conversation by our delegates throughout the two days. Matt’s team were superb to deal with! A flawless execution! If you are looking for a presenter that will re-invigorate your audience and leave them wanting more, Matt Church is your man! Matt provides a highly energetic and energised performance, combined with his own unique humour he will be the talk of your group for months ahead.
