“One of the best talks I’ve ever heard at a conference!”
“Pandemic or no pandemic, nothing can stop our Kentucky Fried pride celebrations.
To get the party started Matt Ellison joined us virtually to share his personal journey and experiences.
Buckets of love and gratitude to Matt for such an inspiring, authentic session.”
“Having never met someone transgender before, I was really looking forward to hearing Matt talk about his story. What I hadn’t been prepared for was how much I wanted to learn about the transgender community after his talk. Since hearing Matt speak, I can’t stop reading and learning about this topic. Matt has the most unique ability to pass wisdom – without being preachy – in such a way that left us all wanting to educate ourselves. Matt provides a sensitive yet influential argument about some hot topics relating to gender and diversity. I have no hesitation in recommending Matt.”
Matt was recently invited to speak at the Lloyd’s Dive In Festival in Chatham. Matt shared his life story and how the decisions he made throughout have affected him. Matt was very engaging and his talk opened my eyes to the difficulties faced by Matt and others in similar situations. Matt is obviously very passionate about helping others and telling his story, so others are confident in taking the first step to changing their lives. Matt was able to share useful resources to the group and was keen to speak to members of the audience on a personal level after the talk. A thought provoking talk.
Matt had the audience captivated with his own incredible and courageous personal story. I have to say it was one of the best sessions I have ever seen delivered at a Pharmacy Conference and I have been to many in my 24 years as a pharmacist professional.Matt has a natural ability to speak confidently and effortlessly to a large audience and has personality and speaker content to keep an audience hanging on his every word.I cannot recommend Matt more highly.
“I have no hesitation in recommending Matt to speak at any event across any industry vertical. I think his stories around transformation and change, and the bravery and courage in personal journey, is something that is applicable to any type of person in any type of industry”
“He was brilliant. The students just loved him. For me it was like working with a good friend. So, an all-round excellent job.”
“Brave beyond words”
“Matt Ellison speaks with authenticity and truth. He shares his knowledge and life experiences with candour and emotionally connects everyone in the room in an instant. I learn something from Matt every time I hear him speak!”
“You know you’re seeing a *great* talk when you don’t think to tweet about it”
“Matt Ellison is an engaging performer and an inspiring teacher who has been changing lives for years. He has courage, integrity, passion and a unique story to tell. “
“I have known Matt for many years. During which time I have observed him speaking to a variety of groups and audiences. What can I say… Interesting, informative and engaging. Often thought provoking always honest.”
“Matt delivered a talk to our GP’s at a recent training session. He delivered his presentation in a professional manner with great charisma and captured the attention of our audience from start to finish. I know the GP’s really appreciated how open Matt was about his experience and were grateful for the insight he provided. He followed the brief and adhered to the timing for the day. All in all I thought his talk was excellent, I really wish we could have had him for longer. Thanks Matt.”
