Here are a few comments from people I've presented seminars and workshops for.
“Thank you for your presentation at Baker & McKenzie on behalf of the Baker & McKenzie Sports Club on Wednesday, 23 January 2002. It was terrific! We had a record number of people attend (about 85) and as you could see the room was packed.
The feedback was positive and those who attended indicated their interest by asking many questions and receiving practical answers. The humour and the pace kept everyone's attention. Your inclusion and coverage of the 'corporate condition' was excellent.

“ … Matt has an ability to engage his audience and relay a serious message in a fun and light-hearted style. Our aim was to ensure our staff came away from the sessions better informed and motivated to improve their diet and lifestyle. We believe Matt was the ideal person to help achieve this goal… “
Ellen Stanley, Human Resources Advisor - Caltex Australia
“Few people have Matt's ability to present this potentially sober material in such a compelling way. He always correctly pitches his material to suit his diverse audiences, and delivers it with humour, and sparkle. In his work for the Foundation, Matt has spoken to intimate audiences of thirty, and to larger audiences of eight hundred secondary school girls. The feedback is universally positive and we receive constant requests to engage his services.
Matt has for many years been committed to improving the physical and emotional health of young Australians. His research and high media profile supplement his extraordinary capacity to deliver a message that is practical, sensible, educational, thoughtful, engaging and vastly entertaining. He has my warmest endorsement."
Amanda Jordon - Chairperson, Eating Disorders Foundation of NSW Inc.
“Matt O'Neill presented the program “The Art of Life, Culinary Skills and a Healthy Diet” to a large group of doctors at a cooking school on 19th October 2002.
It was a very informative and enjoyable presentation. The doctors were very impressed with Matt's extensive knowledge, impeccable presentation skills and good sense of humour. Matt kept their attention and gave extremely practical, thorough answers to all their questions.
I've known Matt for a year. He has always been inspirational, motivating and full of positive exciting vitality. Due to the fantastic feedback we received from his presentation, I have arranged to hold future meetings, with Matt as guest speaker, next year!”
Mara Bontempo-Ross - Pfizer
