What I Like to talk About

What is the first thing you think of when you hear (or read) “team building”? Why does team building, whether you spell it as one word or two, have such a negative connotation to so many? For those who are naturally active and/or outgoing, team building is often welcomed with open arms; however, for those who are introverted, and/or less athletically inclined, it’s often a cause of hesitation, fear, and anxiety. By conducting a series of short surveys, Matt garnered the common opinions, and misconceptions, of what team building is, and he’s sharing his findings, and solutions, with the world through his speaking engagements and his book, TAKE THE FEAR OUT OF TEAM BUILDING. Team building is more than zip lining, trust falls, and slide show presentations. Are you still feeling skeptical? It’s time you participated in this interactive (yes, attendees will participate in some simple, yet engaging activities), informative and engaging presentation.

Attendees will take away the following key points . . .

  • - recognition that “team building” is not a “bad word.”
  • - an understanding of what positive team building experiences entail.
  • - a removal of fear and anxiety around both the words, and acts, of team building.
  • - when and how to host a productive team building experience beneficial to everyone on a team.
  • - first and foremost, team building can, and should, be FUN.


Is company loyalty a thing anymore? Is employee loyalty a thing? One or two “main” or “substantial” jobs within a lifetime was the way it was for past generations, but nowadays, we don’t stick with one company for our entire career. We may even change careers . . . not just individual jobs, but a collection of jobs, or opportunities, within a field of industry. As May reflects back upon his life journey thus far, he shares the “mashup” career he’s had. When someone asks him in what industry he works, the usual reply is “events and entertainment,” though, truth be told, looking at the entire spectrum, it encompasses “events, entertainment, and eduction.” A Type-A planner, it has been a challenge for Matt to accept that his path hasn’t been “typical,” and more often than he’d like to admit, he’s found himself comparing where he was in his professional (and tangibles) life, with others. Join him as he shares stories, anecdotes, and some of the “mishaps” he’s encountered, along with a few interactive activities, while reassuring you that your organic path is the “right way to go.”

Following the presentation, attendees will leave recognizing and appreciating that . . .
- every individual’s path is his or her own.
- there’s no one “right way.”
- there’s no need to compare oneself to others.
- regretting past decisions only holds one back from moving forward.
- embracing opportunities, no matter how “off the path,” may result in better experiences than “planned.”
