The Bearded Leader
Matt left the big city of Toronto after a diagnosis of leukemia which resulted in a positive, new lens on life. He moved to the mountains of British Columbia, Canada and now builds community With StoryTellers, Filmmakers & Cinematic Lovers as the Executive Director of the Okanagan Society
of Independent Filmmakers.
Matt has given 3 International TEDx Talks – in South Carolina, The Hague Netherlands and most recently in Cocoa Beach Florida where he talked about “Bringing Real World Community Back To Social Media”.
Matt also believes in the power of Sport in bringing people together and building community. He has worked on some of the largest sporting events in the world. For the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic Games, he was the Operations Team Lead for the city-based competition venues – which was basically a fancy title for the leader of the cavalry. Matt had a team of 50 volunteers who had the responsibility to back-fill any role, any time, at any of the venues. If you watched Curling, Speed Skating (Short & Long), Figure Skating, Hockey, or the Opening and Closing Ceremonies – you may have seen him and his team in action.
He also facilitated the Leadership Training for staff and volunteers at the 2015 Pan AM Games and has worked on over 24 World Cup and World Championship events. Matt challenges us all to have a re-think about how we use social media to build authentic, real-world connections through our digital devices.
