Matthew Ferrara | Global Speaker. Philosopher.
When you’re ready for unlimited potential, goals and achievement, I can help. It's time to reach the success you deserve. For more than 30 years I've helped people lead inspiring lives, build their careers and become their best selves at home, work and in the world. I've travelled the world speaking, mentoring and hosting retreats that ignite the creativity, capability and confidence of people wherever they are today - so they can become the success they want tomorrow. I started speaking and training while in college. Since them I've reached 49 U.S. States and 20 countries, visiting wonderful places and meeting amazing people. I use words, photographs and innovative communications to inspire relationships and motivate action. Each of us has something good to give to the world, and my mission is to help others achieve that potential. Combining creative writing, art, business lessons and technology, I weave stories as sparks of new ideas for entrepreneurs, leaders, teachers, writers and professional audiences of all kinds. My knack is connecting the dots between the different parts of our lives and the world. As a two-time cancer survivor, I realize that every day is precious enough for us to deserve to do the work we love with the people we admire for the reasons that matter most. KEYNOTES & WORKSHOPS: ★ #AlwaysInspiring You! A CREATIVE SALES, MARKETING AND GROWTH PROGRAM Something special happens when you connect your inner beliefs with your personal creativity and organizational tools. I discovered that very lesson myself and what I learned changed everything. Let me help your organization rethink the way you prospect, create value and delight clients with fresh perspectives, using award-winning photographs from my travels working with some of the best companies in the world. Topics include: • What happens on the day you “Quit” competing like everyone else • Leveraging your Mantra to Do What Others Won’t to Build Relationships • Tapping Your Talents: Marketing More than Just Skills and Tools • Simple Storytelling to Create Inspirational Social Networks • Inspiring Others: Helping your Sphere of Influence Help You grow • Unexpected Growth: Attracting Opportunities You Never Expected Whether your organization sells real estate or insurance, fragrances or automobiles, I can help your sales, marketing and management teams connect the dots between their purpose, personal creativity and client’s delight. ★ ALWAYSINSPIRING Leadership: A DIFFERENT APPROACH A few years ago I was sitting in an Florence Piazza when a man walked into the center of the street and began talking. He was inspiring; he was funny; and he was talking about important things, directly into the hearts of passersby. Within moments, a crowd formed, and he spoke and we listened. I took over a hundred photographs of him. The crowd would have followed him anywhere. How did he do it? That experience forms the basis of ALWAYSINSPIRING Leadership, an exploration of ways leaders change the world by leading themselves, leading others and leading their organizations. Taking insights from business, art, history and science, we'll explore: • The need to lead ourselves first, from our self-talk to our personal vision of success • The simple method for telling visionary stories to inspire employees and customers alike • The skills for taking bold steps to solve problems and create a ground-breaking value • The opportunity to leverage character, values and connection to generate growth networks • The steps to discovering new “patterns” of thought that we call “big data” pathways to growth. ALWAYSINSPIRING Leadership a fun, engaging way to use our personal growth to lead our teams, companies and communities to achieve greatness in our lives and careers. ★ ALWAYSINSPIRING Networking: FORGET VIRAL - GET VITAL Most marketing today is meaningless drivel. Few customers want to “optimize the synergies of your ecosystem to generate leads and empower growth” when what they really want is “a better way to make friends, generate business and close deals.” In an era of digital marketing, wordsand pictures matter more than ever. That's why I created a creative writing course for sales, marketing and management professionals that uncovers the simple ways to leave the quest to go viral behind - and become vital to your clients' lives. • Learn how to read, write, and apply creative writing skills directly to modern marketing • Discover rules for Storytelling that eliminate the need for marketing stunts to attract attention • Rewrite your approach to professional bios, company pages and product marketing to touch the emotional side of buying and selling • Get beyond the stats, facts and data by discovering that a Mercedes is much more than four doors, four wheels and a tailpipe • Now get in motion by translating good copy into engaging videos, sharable social media and impressive presentations **For full information on Matthew's services and bespoke options click to his website from this profile**

Quick on his feet, creatively outstanding and fiercely loyal...
There are simply not enough words to describe the force that Matthew Ferrara exemplifies in business. He is by any means, a prodigy, who can consult at the highest level across all aspects of business. Not only does Matthew become the voice of innovation and technology for realtors, but the advocate for deploying the fundamental skills and practices needed to be successful. Quick on his feet, creatively outstanding and fiercely loyal, Matthew is both visionary and role model within the industry.
I’ve heard Matthew Ferrara speak before and typically my head starts swimming about 5 minutes in – his knowledge in that field is incredible, to say the least. That being said – his presentation on Thursday touched the “real-side” of our business and it was SPECTACULAR! Loved the entire presentation.
...a really special talent!
Matthew has impressed me from day one, which is why we keep asking him back. He has a rare grasp of the basics of the traditional brokerage business AND the potential for enhancement brought by interactive marketing and media. He understands that it’s about people. Matthew not only has this expertise but he’s a great teacher and presenter, mixing effective delivery of concepts with humor and examples. He’s one of the best consultants/teachers in the business today….a really special talent!
