What People
Have To Say


Don't just take my word for it

Emily Leach

Founder & CEO, The Freelance Conference

Emily Leach, founder of the Freelance Conference and the Texas Freelance Association, describes Matthew Pollard’s ability to take command of a stage and engage with each audience member individually, regardless of the size of the crowd. A seasoned speaker herself, Emily came away from Matthew’s presentation inspired and impressed.

Jessica Smith

Assistant Executive Director, International Order of the Golden Rule

Jessica talks about the problems she had in the past finding a speaker who could customize the presentation for the audience. She was tired of canned speeches that had no applicability to her industry. She was thrilled to work with Matthew because of his ability to gear the presentation to her field, and was impressed with his energy, responsiveness, and audience engagement. Also unlike other speakers, Matt made himself available after the presentation in order to speak further with the attendees, instead of rushing off as soon as the talk was over.

Bethany Jenkins

Vice President, Jenkins Custom Homes

In her career in the homebuilding industry, Bethany has been to dozens of conferences, and heard dozens of speakers discuss marketing and sales for builders. But none resonated like Matt — the difference is, he provided information that was actionable and applicable, not only to Bethany, but to all the builders present. Each homebuilding company is unique, with its own niche and its own distinct message; Matthew is able to bring that message out, in this industry and across a range of professional service businesses.

Marc Smith

Partner, The Cuillin Collective

Marc was Matthew Pollard’s video editor, not a client. But after learning about the Rapid Growth strategies while working on Matt’s videos, Marc decided to give them a try, despite his skepticism. He saw immediate results, both online and offline, generating an influx of qualified leads and closing deals at 10X his previous pricing.

Gary Smyth

Founder & CEO, Sales Elite

Gary met Matthew Pollard at a mentoring event designed to help new entrepreneurs set themselves up for success, and was excited to learn the rapid growth principles responsible for Matthew’s own success and that of his many clients. Gary faced challenges defining clear goals and setting up pricing structures; with Matt’s help, his revenue very quickly increased from $4000 to $13,500 per month.

Matt is a serious player in the business space as well as a risk taker with a talent for seeing the big picture. His last ten years have been nothing short of spectacular with one success after another, showcasing his great talent and versatility in sales and marketing. Matt embodies the quintessential modern day business guru with a tremendous blend of theoretical and practical know how. I have known and worked with him over several years in various projects and in each case have seen firsthand how impactful he is in everything he does and how positive the outcomes from those efforts are for his customers. A gifted speaker and natural motivator, he will provide a stunning focal point to any business meeting or conference with his inimitable style of presentation.

Daniele Lima,
Managing Director, Road Scholars Training

It was great to have a sales and marketing expert, such as yourself, discuss with us the topic of “if sales can be learned.” I also want to show my appreciation for giving out so much critical advice on the importance of learning to sell through steps and how to utilize sales scripting. I enjoyed having you on my show and would love to invite you back again. Your insights on sales and sales management were spot on.

Jim Beach,
SBA Award Winning Radio Host, School For Startups Radio

Matt has already demonstrated his ability to recognize and make the most of business opportunities. Initially he was my student on an MBA program and he was thirsty for new ideas and creative about applying them. He also facilitated others’ understanding in the class. Later Matt was a mentor and adviser, helping me to see my consulting business differently. He has boundless energy and an enviable ability to focus on getting results.

Meredith Rogers,
Owner, Partnership Solutions Pty Ltd

Matthew has unlimited energy, and it is all focused. His ability to understand business opportunities and make them happen is more than just impressive, it is amazing!

Don Moore,
Training Manager, Education Institute

Matthew is a driven individual. His ability to engage clients and staff to take them to the next level is inspiring and shows genuine care. He has a unique ability to take any product or service provided by a business, find a prosperous new niche for it, and then differentiate it to propel the business into rapid growth. More amazingly, he seems to be able to scale a business to handle this growth seamlessly.

Vicki Jones,
Senior Organisational Development Specialist, Telstra
Macedon Ranges

Participants, many seasoned business people that engaged in marketing everyday, were amazed that one person could provide so much content in such a short time.

Kylie Lethbridge,
Manager - Economic Development, Macedon Ranges Shire Council

It is my view that Matthew will make a major success of any business that he turns his hand to.

James Woods,
Managing Director, eCollect

I was so surprised at his quick grasp of my business and direct helpful advice that I could use straight away.

Peter Radcliffe,
Founder, Skillful Mind

When we met Matthew we were a couple very hard to convince, because we thought we knew it all and we had no time for this type of thing. But we have realised that by undertaking this course it’s opened our doors and our business has improved. We don’t know how to thank him enough.

Adriana Bastianelli,
Director, Australian Commercial Refrigeration

The training, advice and assistance provided has been invaluable to my business and has definitely produced some amazing changes, developments, and results both personally and in my business practices.

Ivan Morse,
Franchise Owner and Director, Re-Creation Health Club - Sunbury

Matthew really gave our businesses something to think about, particularly in relation to how to make a sale and how to close a deal. I would certainly recommend Matthew as an engaging and inspiring speaker.

Jane Duncan,
Project Support Officer - Economic Development, Macedon Ranges Shire Council

Matthew Pollard was a delight and genius to work with, effervescent and confidence-instilling.

Andrew Finch,
General Counsel & Company Secretary, Qantas

Matthew’s ability to show insight and create change in even the most experienced of individuals, such as myself, is a skill not many people possess. Matthew’s advice and feedback were of vital assistance to me, and under his guidance I honed and critiqued my future training sessions. I was very impressed by Matthew’s invaluable inputs. His business experience coupled with personal empathy and his ability to understand individual needs in order to help his client’s gain that edge is rare and highly commendable.

Christopher Teo,
MBA Program Facilitator, Australian Graduate School of Management

Matthew is a very enthusiastic trainer, speaker and sales consultant. He has opened the door for me to take on additional training and now I am a qualified Career Development Practitioner with the appetite to take on a degree in Counselling which I will complete next year.

Teresa Brandau-Stranks,
Executive Officer/CPD Manager, Australian & New Zealand College of Anaesthetists

When I started my own business, I attended a training course where Matthew was the course instructor. In a few short days, Matthew showed me how to create packages to entice new customers, and as a result I got a sale the next day from a customer I would have normally viewed as a waste of time. I would highly recommend Mathew to anyone looking to improve their sales know how in a business environment.

Steve Brendish,
Creative Director, 2 Dam Creative

Matthew is a highly driven and focused individual. He has many strengths when it comes to building successful business strategies from the ground up. I was lucky enough to work with him while he took one of these ventures, Choice Mobiles, from a small telecommunications outfit, to a genuine b2b competitor to the likes of Telstra and Optus. Matthew is an old hand when it comes to entrepreneurial experience, while paired with a young mind holding what seems limitless fresh and innovative ideas.

Brent Sweerts,
Resource Planning Analyst, Mercer

Matthew is an inspired and driven thought leader. His personable yet determined approach to getting results is what makes Matthew stand out amongst his peers. Anyone would be lucky to work with him.

Ruth Posterino,
Founder and Director, ManifestUrLife

I have known Matt for a fair few years, he has tremendous energy, is always enthusiastic and has some new and innovative ideas that I believe will serve anyone that works with him well. Matt is highly approachable and a great leader. Matt was one of my top re sellers and always overachieved sales targets.If you ever need someone to deliver under pressure, no slip-ups, just results, Matt is your man! He is great in dealing with difficult situations and a fantastic problem solver. I have no hesitation in recommending Matt.

Rosa Alessi,

Matthew has a fantastic ability to build sales and marketing teams, use creativity to differentiate his product from all others, and lead by example. Few individuals can offer such valued expertise and insight.
