The WY Association of Municipal Clerks and Treasurers booked Matt Booth as our keynote speaker for an in-person Institute. Well, as so many others have experienced we made the tough decision to pivot the institute to a virtual platform. Matt proved to be not only willing to be flexible he was very supportive throughout all the ensuing COVID restrictions and challenges. But most importantly, he delivered a truly outstanding interactive virtual presentation. He was amazing at utilizing the chatbox comments and questions to keep the presentation relevant and inclusive. Matt’s ability to call people by name and relate to their comments showed he was genuinely engaged with our audience. - Sarah Schneider - Casper College
Recently, I had the pleasure of listening to Matt Booth discuss the power of positivity in the workplace, the home, and more. He gave us some great takeaways and some great “coffee talk” ideas to discuss within our teams. I wanted to roll out one of his positivity activities to our team of 15 and when I reached out to him for some additional help … he actually did!!! He gave me some great pointers to aid in my rollout to the team and has already made an impact in the mindsets of those of us who were able to listen to him at our conference. I would recommend him for any-sized team gathering for a great and interactive presentation, as well as some great takeaways that can be easily implemented in your teams to build a stronger, more positive team environment! - Jamie Meyers - Strategic Financial Solutions

Adding Matt Booth to your next conference line-up is a sure-win...he will not disappoint!! - Shelley Buresh - Dovetail Solutions, Inc.
Matt Booth is an energetic, engaging, and thoughtful speaker. He has a way of telling stories that are relevant and drive home the key points. The conference attendees said the topic was inspirational and informative. The self-test immediately shows you where your attitude stands, and you leave the presentation with tips and tools you can immediately implement. - Tamara Butler - Director of Education, MCA of Western Washington
Matt has always had a powerful message centered around how attitude affects every aspect of your life; personally and professionally. However, when faced with the challenging times we’re in as we trudge through a worldwide pandemic and a social revolution, I was so impressed with how Matt pivoted his approach (literally and figuratively) without losing sight of the fundamental and important point that we can control our attitude. He effectively delivered a very powerful message to our entire commercial organization, virtually, on a Monday morning to kick off our remote summer sales meeting. He helped the team think through ways to connect better with their customers, each other, and their family and friends. Matt is articulate, engaging, flexible, and just a great guy! I highly recommend him for any audience, in person or virtually, and I guarantee hearing this message will increase the morale of your team. - Jennifer L.
