Matt Church

Leadership expert

    Matt Church believes powerfully in the idea that your commercial success is best achieved by delivering value beyond expectations—it’s about understanding how you best make a difference to the human condition, however that looks.

    After graduating with a sports science degree from the University of New South Wales, in 1993 he was voted Australian Fitness Leader of the Year. His first book, written 25 years ago, focuses on the business of fitness and he has been helping people be commercially smart ever since.

    Matt’s next chapter saw him working with leaders on team performance, asking the question, ‘how do the best get better?’. In 2000, the ABC published his Chemistry of Success™ series and Adrenalin Junkies™ became a national bestseller.

    Moving from corporate wellness to conference speaking, Matt quickly rose to the top of the profession, and was inducted into the professional speaker Hall of Fame in 2014. On a global scale, the International Federation of Professional Speakers recognised him as one of the world’s top 21 most influential people in the industry, while e-Speakers ranks him as one of the top 10 motivational speakers globally.

    In 2001, Matt founded Thought Leaders™, transforming people with knowledge and expertise into highly influential agents of change.
