Matt Walker has climbed mountains on every continent, earned a master's degree in applied behavioral science, launched his own adventure company and written a book - Adventure in Everything — all before his 40th birthday.
But he'll be the first to tell you that what you accomplish isn't nearly as important as how you accomplish it.
It was during a moonlit climb in the Himalayas when Matt was struck with a profound concept – take the essence of adventure and use it as a catalyst for learning to live fully. He returned from this expedition and created the Five Elements of Adventure – the foundation for his keynote and coaching practice.
An exciting speaker, Matt inspires his listeners to live a fully engaged life. He offers a unique experience where audience members will learn to embrace uncertainty as a powerful and positive force that fuels engagement in all aspects of life – work, relationships and time.
Matt supports individuals and organizations to push beyond their preconceived notion of what it means to live a fully engaged life. He touts the importance of being mindful and intentional in our actions ….from taking a nervous step on a rock wall to creating excellence in teams and driving innovation in the marketplace.
Matt draws from his background as an international mountain guide and his Master's in Behavioral Science to teach others to shift their perspective and gain energy to understand that full engagement living is a state of physical, emotional and cognitive high performance.
His client list includes:
· City of Austin
· Duke Energy
· Canyon Ranch
...plus a multitude of associations and governmental agencies.
