As A Keynote Speaker To Executive Teams And Audiences Of All Sizes, I share how my own life-shaping lessons learned outside, in the wild, can be replicated and applied to your organization.

My passion is helping people move beyond overwhelm to rediscover their best selves, develop a clear purpose, and build the confidence necessary to Lead With Clarity, Integrity, And Humility.


Covid 19 Update

Keynote delivery and workshop facilitation available via Zoom -
connect directly for custom solutions.

Throughout this era of Covid we have, as an organization and as individuals, sought guidance and support to navigate uncertainty and overwhelm. Matt Walker’s Five Elements of Adventure provided a new and engaging perspective for us. While I would have greatly preferred an in-person delivery - his presence over Zoom, coupled with rich imagery and story-telling, worked perfectly.

Lead With Clarity, Integrity, And Humility.

With over twenty years of international mountain guiding experience and a Master’s in Organizational Development,
I’ve discovered how adventure can teach us to live each day with Intention, Focus, And Humor. As a keynote speaker,
I show audiences how they can put this knowledge to use in their own lives and businesses,
with their families and coworkers, and on projects of all sizes.

When I speak of adventure, I’m not just talking about scaling high mountains in remote regions of the world.
I’ve developed The Five Elements Of Adventure, which function as a roadmap for vitality, wellbeing, and transformation.
The best part? These elements can be found in everyday life. They’re all around you—It’s Just A Matter Of Finding Them.

Five Elements of adventure can allow you
to step outside of your comfort zone and live the life you want.


  • High Endeavor
  • Uncertain Outcome
  • Total Commitment
  • Tolerance for Adversity
  • Great Companionship

As a keynote speaker, I show audiences how these Five Elements Of Adventure can allow you to step outside of your comfort zone and live the life you want.

These elements of adventure aren’t relegated to high mountain peaks or rugged glaciers—they’re everywhere.
By helping audiences understand where these elements fit into their own lives, my participants leave Inspired, Empowered, Confident, And With A Clarity They’ve Never Experienced Before.My philosophy and passion as a facilitator is to keep everyone’s energy up and engaged throughout the session, while giving ample time for personal reflection and allowing each participant to develop the clarity they need to redefine their purpose.

I Love Working With Audiences Of All Shapes And Sizes—ranging from a room of 30 executives to 1,000 individuals. I have spoken for companies of all sizes and across all industries—from The Young Presidents Organization to Microsoft, Comcast, Amazon, Boeing, and more.

I’d love to uplift, inspire, and motivate your audience.

Speaking topics

My mission as a keynote speaker is to help people reconnect With Themselves, Regain Focus, And Develop Clarity In Their Lives And Businesses. I use stories of adventure from my own life and insights from my experience as a high performance executive coach to connect with my audience on a foundational level.


  1. The Five Elements of Adventure: High Endeavor, Uncertain Outcome, Total Commitment, Tolerance for Adversity, Great Companionship.
  2. Full Engagement Leadership: Creating sustainable leadership through clear direction and purpose.
  3. Uncertain Outcome: Navigating fear, challenge, and uncertainty as a driver for innovation, excellence, and achievement.
  4. Sustainable Peak Performance: Building capacity in a world of unrelenting demand.

All of my presentations center around Meaningful Conversation. The simple reality is that we are all capable of doing more than we ever imagined. Regardless of who I’m talking to, my goal is always to help my audience:

  • Gain confidence and clarity
  • Regain joy and focus in their lives, work, and businesses
  • Find adventure in everything they do
  • Reconnect with themselves
  • Discover the value in stepping outside of their comfort zones

Matt Walker has climbed mountains on every continent, earned a master’s degree in applied behavioral science, launched his own adventure company and written a book, Adventure in Everything — all before his 40th birthday.

But he’ll be the first to tell you that what you accomplish isn’t nearly as important as how you go about accomplishing it. What matters, says Walker, is to be mindful and intentional in all your actions, align your values and your actions — from taking your next step on a rock wall to creating excellence in teams and driving innovation in the marketplace.

Matt had an epiphany while climbing by moonlight at 2am at 24,000 feet in the Himalayas: translate the essence of adventure into all aspects of our lives; personal and professional. A guiding principle that supports individuals and organizations to push beyond preconceived notions of what is possible and align their values with concrete action.

Most of all Matt is bold, direct and honest. Your audience will walk away ready to take specific action – with intention and direction.

“Matt Walker was a hit at our annual company summit. He captivated our audience of 300 people with his stories and 5 elements of adventure. The content was inspiring, thought provoking and memorable. In the weeks leading up to the summit, working with Matt was also a breeze! He was incredibly responsive to all email and phone communication. Setting him up for his session was seamless and everything went off without a hitch. With having our event take place at a lodge in the middle of the Columbia River Gorge, Matt could not have made for a more perfect fit!

2019 collection

Let’s face it, no look is really complete without the right finishes. Not to the best of standards, anyway (just tellin’ it like it is, babe). Upgrading your shoe game. Platforms, stilettos, wedges, mules, boots—stretch those legs next time you head out, then rock sliders, sneakers, and flats when it’s time to chill.

I'M Ready. Let's Make this happen.
