Matt Havens is an international keynote speaker, reformed corporate leader, son of a comedian, and a firm believer we overcomplicate work by overthinking the solutions.  While Matt doesn’t take himself too seriously, he seriously delivers a high-energy, actionable, and hilarious message every time he takes a stage.

Matt is at the intersection of thought leadership, entertainment, and real-life.  He spent 14 years leading diverse teams in finance, sales, and customer service for a Fortune 50 company which gave him the in-the-trenches experience companies can relate with and understand.  Matt also grew up being snuck into the back room of comedy clubs while his Dad performed with some of the biggest names in comedy.  That experience taught him the importance of engaging an audience and the infectious impact of laughter.  Understanding those two experiences don’t have to be mutually exclusive – that we can drive business growth and results while having fun doing it – has positioned Matt to help hundreds of organizations and recognizable brands like RE/MAX, Lockheed Martin, and Allstate to go along with countless government and industry associations from nearly every trade.

Matt lives in Dallas, TX with his wife and best friend, Megan, and their twin daughters Avery and Emersyn.  When he’s not working, he’s probably trying to convince his daughters to love golf or plan the next family adventure.
