More about Matt

Matt is the founder of the Global Thought Leaders Movement and creator of the Million Dollar Expert Program ™. He is the author of 5 books including Thought Leaders and his latest Sell Your Thoughts.

Born in Newcastle in 1968 he studied applied science at NSW University. He has managed pubs, run fitness centers and conducted health education programs in some major NSW prisons. He was the director of education for A.C.H.P.E.R fitness leader courses for several years and was the master trainer for Step Reebok throughout the ASIA pacific. In 1993 he was recognised as the Australian Fitness Leader of the year. He built and sold Australia’s first personal training studio. As Matt says though that was a lifetime ago.

With the launch of his international best seller The Chemistry of Success Matt was launched as a corporate conference speaker and for most of the 90’s he delivered more than 100 presentations a year to audiences packed to the rafters. During this time the meetings industry recognised Matt several times as one of the top 10 speakers in Australia. He still speaks to this day but now delivers a sensible 30 or so speeches. Just last year he spoke in New Orleans to 30,000 people and in Tokyo to more than 14,000 under simultaneous translation to receive a 3-minute long-standing ovation. The international speaking community recognised him as one of the 25 most influential people in the speaking profession.

Since 2001 Matt has dedicated the majority of his time to building Thought Leaders Global. Thought Leaders is a network organisation with staggering growth and revenue projections. It delivers a curriculum that helps clever people be commercially smart and is built around a leadership team of mentors (50 strong at time of writing in 5 countries). The community of cross category, multi disciplinary thinkers come together to have inspired conversations that ‘rock the planet’. The level of conversation and quality of thinking when the community comes together is magnificent.

Keynote Topics


The simple fact is that the world is changing at an ever increasing rate. Technological advances are creating shifting paradigms in every industry across the globe, and it’s a trend which we need to stand up and take notice of.

This keynote is based on Matt’s latest book, Next – Thoughts about tomorrow you can talk about today.

In this rapidly changing world, the only certainty is that what works today will not work tomorrow. Old business models won’t work, old leadership styles won’t be tolerated and slow moving industries and businesses will become extinct. The successful players will be the ones with the greatest agility, creativity and foresight.


Organisations looking to develop their leaders so they amplify the best in themselves and their teams should look no further than the author of the most practical book on the subject.

As the founder of Thought Leaders Global and the author of Amplifiers, Matt has long been driven to understand the most important elements of influential leadership. He believes that leadership is in essence about bringing out greatness in others and this principle is at the centre of his keynote on amplifiers.

Organisations that succeed have leaders and teams that are inspired by what they do and what their work stands for. Matt unpacks the process by which transformational leaders can amplify their impact – amplify their productivity, amplify their creativity and amplify their results.

Thought Leaders

Matt’s presentation on thought leadership is the ideal catalyst for change. If you want to harness the intelligence within your organisation, this keynote will help the best and brightest shine even brighter. It will help to identify and release potential and also activate greater activity and innovation.

A thought leader is a leading authority in their field of expertise. They have access to a wealth of specialised knowledge which makes them uniquely valuable. They have collected information from varied and comprehensive sources and – most importantly – have packaged it so it can be effectively taught to others.

Whether they know it or not, organisations are driven by the opportunities created and discovered by the thought leaders within, and it’s important to realise that these abilities can be nurtured and developed.

Chemistry of Success

Having commenced his career studying the science of high performance, Matt Church presents a practical and entertaining keynote on how to create a healthy balanced life. This presentation is based on his successful book Highlife 24/7 and explores the chemistry of success.

Every feeling in the human body is the result of a chemical – the internal physical drivers of peak performance. Learn about balancing these chemicals and you can better manage your moods and master the key to lifting your performance and productivity.

Where human excellence is concerned, Matt has years of experience. From demanding the most of himself to consulting with some of the biggest multi-national organisations, Matt has developed his own intellectual property around what makes high performance people tick.

Client Reviews

An extremely engaging and motivational speaker. Matt’s infectious energy held the day together flawlessly for our audience. As a thought leader, Matt’s insight and take on insurance challenged the way we think about the future direction of our industry.


Matt was the highlight of the day and people are still talking about his session! I think there are few speakers on the circuit that give such great content, incredible passion and energy and make people laugh so much they are falling off their chairs! Honestly, Matt could do stand-up comedy, he is so funny. It was a pleasure working with him.

Such a powerful session! The feedback has been terrific, and your message was heard loud and clear. The team are speaking highly of you. Your delivery was exceptional. I am thrilled to be a member of this business – but more so now, because a bunch of people are keen to make a difference.


We toured Matt twice around the country to our network. He went the extra mile in pre planning, delivering on the day and follow up. Problem is we are now spoiled, no one even comes close to the professionalism and true thought leadership he provided, if we could use Matt at every event we would.
Matt’s approach is different to many working in this space he is able to challenge and inspire at the same time – brilliant. He really cuts through.
