"As a sponsor of Matt’s presentation, I found that he was very easy to work with both prior, during and after our event. His website was valuable in encouraging people to attend and the slides that accompanied his talk were outstanding. People responded very well to Matt’s style and content. His stories and the 5 Elements of Adventure were illuminating and I was able to apply them to our financial lives in my concluding remarks.  Clients were particularly impressed with his relatability in the Q & A at the end. I would highly recommend Matt."
