Conference Keynote

Chase Your Dreams How many goal seminars, books, webinars and other crap have you sat through, read through, stared at, and listened to only to find that you can’t sustain any of it?  Ask anyone today where they’re going and how they plan to get there, and chances are they don’t know. Today, we live in a microwave, throw-away, live-for-the-moment society.  Take control of your personal and professional life—attitude, relationships, time management, health and fitness, communication, and finances—you determine where you’re going.  

Matt Booth is the ATTITUDE EXPERT. Matt is an engaging speaker and author who encourages people to chase their dreams. He is direct, thought-provoking, and inspiring. To achieve Personal Satisfaction and Professional Success, Matt’s philosophy is simple: You Must Be Yourself and Improve Yourself. www.mattbooth.com
