For too long, introverts have fallen victim to the myth that because of their quiet personalities, they can’t be as successful in business as their extroverted counterparts. In this groundbreaking keynote, Matthew shares personal stories, client transformations, and insights gained through a series of interviews with millionaire introverts, to confront this stigma head-on. By the end of this enlightening presentation, introverts will feel empowered, and know exactly how to embrace and harness their natural abilities for amazing success.


As a lifelong introvert himself, Matthew understands the challenges involved in surviving and thriving in an extroverted business world. And with at least half the population self-identifying as introverts, he’s not alone! This insightful and entertaining keynote shows participants that success comes not from hiding their introversion or pretending to be someone they’re not, but from identifying and leveraging the many introverted gifts that actually give them an edge. True stories, extensive research, and practical how-to’s combine to provide revelations about what it takes for an introvert to succeed on their own terms, and exactly how to go about it.

Secrets from extraordinary introverts: What do Brian Smith, founder of billion-dollar brand UGG Boots; Ryan Deiss, founder of Digital Marketer; Ivan Misner, founder of BNI; and many more have to say about how their introversion contributed to their amazing success? Matthew shares their personal challenges with introversion and the “aha” moment that changed everything.
Matthew’s personal story: From painfully shy and terrified to sell, to the #1 salesperson at the largest sales and marketing firm in the Southern Hemisphere – within six weeks.
Take-action strategies: From sales to networking to presenting to rooms of hundreds or thousands, Matthew will share the specific strategies that he and other extraordinary introverts employ every day to achieve amazing success – strategies to leverage introverted qualities, not disguise them.
