Matt Matkovich was born and raised on the southwest side of Chicago. He is a proud high school Guidance Counselor, having degrees in Special Education and his Master’s in School Guidance and Counseling. His love of public speaking grew out of high school where he picked up a microphone for the first time while running for class president. Matt’s speaking interests led him to his best friend, Phil, and the insanely, positive, energetic M&P Presentations was born! When Matt isn’t spreading good vibes with the M&P Nation, he is spending time with his wife (Bridget), two sons (Ben and Will), and family who are extremely supportive in all of his passions. Matt LOVES to go running, prepare mean lentil soups, and watch professional wrestling while striving to live his life by following the three step motto: Be Nice, Work Hard, and Stay Confident.
“M&P are two dynamic, uplifting, and motivating speakers. They present in a way that instantly breathes positive energy into a room. They reveal confidence from their audience by presenting in a way that enriches, empowers, and entertains throughout the entire presentation.”
