"We have been fortunate at Patterson to have had some great speakers over the years at our Leadership Summit, I would without reservation put Matt Birk at the top of this list.  Matt's talk was relevant, entertaining, and motivational.  People continue to reference Matt's analogies in context of what we are trying to accomplish for our employees, customers and shareholders.  Matt not only made us laugh he helped us on our journey to become a better company."

"Matt’s presentation to our management group was truly inspirational. It appeared as though they were hanging on his every word. We received many enthusiastic responses from the audience and we could not be more pleased. Everyone walked away with multiple thought-provoking principles. These principles can be applied to their work life and extend to their personal lives as well."

"I’ve been in the Dental business 20 years and have experienced multiple Speakers. Matt Birk set the bar. Understanding hard work equals success and discipline is a key separator. Our Sales team 100% could relate. They absolutely loved his presentation. We all took away something relatable to life and business success. My personal take away was, “Regret hurts worse than discipline”. So true."
J. J., VP Sales Kerr TotalCare

"Matt Birk was a hit! Matt was able to relate to our audience and keep them engaged while conveying important messages about the “choices that lead to greatness.” He is a dynamic and energetic speaker. I was impressed with his uncanny sense to hit home with the audience in a very personal and inspirational way- both on the stage to the large group and during the autograph session and the one-on-one conversations. The reviews were wonderful confirmed at the conclusion of the evening when Matt received a standing ovation. If planning a conference or event where you want to share an inspirational message with humor and excitement, I recommend Matt equivocally. He is a professional of great integrity, honesty and credibility."

"Working with Matt Birk was a real pleasure.  He was very personable, easy to work with and took the time to learn about our audience.  He connected very well with the audience during his presentation, mixing some interesting and sometimes humorous stories of his football career with his message of reaching your peak performance in the larger game of life.  The audience thoroughly enjoyed his presentation and he was very gracious afterwards, visiting and taking pictures with our attendees and signing autographs."
B. Z., Executive Director, Minnesota Grain and Feed Association

“Matt, thank you for speaking at the recent 3M roofing industry event. You were a hit. The group made reference to your warrior comments throughout the rest of the trip. I believe your message resonates because you have built credibility resulting from your down to earth upbringing, as well as your proven dedication and multi-faceted success at the high school, college and professional levels. It's no surprise that the NFL enlists your help on issues facing the league, the players and the retirees. I have no doubt that you will continue to find success with the professional speaking tour. You were very gracious in helping make my event a very memorable one indeed."
T. W., National Accounts and Marketing Manager, 3M

"As a former professional athlete, I was impressed with Matt’s ability to relate to everyone on our team.  His insights and principles from an amazing 14-year NFL career provided so many comparisons to the day to day struggles in life, sales and business.  Matt’s ability to weave humor into a powerful message was the highlight of our conference."

Harvey Mackay, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Swim With The Sharks Without Being Eaten Alive

"Matt is both a star and a beloved personality in our community, so having him as our MC really added to our event. More important than his fame though is how genuine he is, and how he connects with our clients and staff. It was fun to see, and added a very warm touch. One of our organization's values is "the Generous Spirit", and that certainly applies to Matt."
