I have had the pleasure and honor to work with Matt Connor in a variety of environments, but it was when he was the emcee of my local organization’s annual awards event that I saw him really shine. From the moment Matt took the stage, he made 200 + audience members feel like a star. He elevated our annual event, even being recognized by an industry veteran as being the finest emcee this event has ever had. His natural ability to connect with the audience, while commanding the stage was flawless. His wit and charm, combined with his professionalism and class, created a night to remember for all of our award winners and attendees. Matt is a hard act to follow.
Dear Matt,I wanted to say thank you for all your help. Over the past two years, you have helped identify mindful thinking solutions to challenges I was facing. You helped me realize the barriers I put on myself through my thoughts, and that directly affected my actions and ultimately led to the outcome of situations. One of my favorite lessons from you is to embrace the fact that everything happens for a good reason. I’ve now realized that life does not happen to me but it is what I create with my thoughts and actions. Thank you for everything. You not only made my life better, but you also made my relationships with difficult people better
Matt Connor speaks like he is. Impactful. Passionate. Poignant. Bold. Real. Agile. Interactive. Entertaining. Heartfelt. It is so important to Matt that his presentations are each of these things. “If I’m not having fun, then I’m doing it wrong. But most of us don’t operate in that zone most of the time. And that’s criminal.” His content resonates with everyone in the room. He is a master of the set up and driving home a point, a concept, a result. In the way that I look forward to spending time with Matt, I relish time when he is speaking. Speaking is his calling. I Highly recommend.
Working with Matt has taught me how to control my thoughts to ease anxiety and keep my daily life on a positive path. I know this sounds cheesy, but it’s true. I had always heard that your emotions, thoughts and beliefs control your reality but until you really learn how to DO it, you have no idea.Matt pointed out the subtle details of my own thought processes that were sabotaging me and keeping me from being the most focused person I could be.
Matt Connor recently spoke to our production team about coping with stress and burn out. Matt’s delivery is very humble and personable which made his presentation appeal to our diverse group. Matt provided real world references and got our team discussing instances that put everyone at ease. Matt presented us with tangible tools for our team to utilize in reducing stress and managing everyday obstacles.
Coach Connor was such an integral part of where I am right now. Before my sessions with Matt, I had lost confidence in myself and I felt I had no control over my life or my future. He was there every step of the way to listen and guide me. With his help, I have regained confidence in myself and I owe it all to him. I would not be where I am today without Coach Connor!
Matt is a fun and engaging speaker who pours his heart into his subject matter and lights a fire in his listeners. He’s a top notch presenter!
