What are the core subjects of your keynote speeches?

Matthew Mockridge:

Next Generation Leadership, Start-Up, Gen-Y, A lot of the companies I work with keep telling me: “We have always done it that way!” The perfect moment for me to offer a totally new perspective and align the different generations within the organisation.

Which audience or which branch do you reach with your speech?

Matthew Mockridge:

Young and old, all sectors and industries. Personal Leadership is key for anyone, cleaning staff to CEO. How you lead is who you are!

Why are you a Premium Speaker? Where do you get your insights from?

Matthew Mockridge:

I speak from experience not from theory. Founded my first start-up from a 13m2 dorm room and took that company to 60 cities in less than 2 years. We recruited, led and expanded heavily in a Gen-Y environment. Too many amazing a-ha moments to not share with the world in my books and keynotes!

What will be in the future? Does 'time' play an important role in your work?

Matthew Mockridge:

The world is changing faster than ever before. Amazing opportunity or impossible change implications – you get to choose.

What is your life motto? What would you like to give your listeners on the way?

If you want a result you never had, do something you never did.
