Matthew’s ability to connect with the audience and share his valuable insights through stories was truly amazing. There were parts of his talk where the audience would be doubled over in laughter and other instances where the messaging was so touching that many cried. It was a beautiful experience and very inspiring. A great experience that I would recommend for any company.
