Matthew King OBE

Extremely Inspirational Speaker

Matthew King OBE is a leading inspirational speaker and the youngest person ever to receive an honour (OBE). Like you, Matt has experienced adversity. Personal problems, professional challenges, who hasn’t? But unlike others, Matt’s challenges were brought about through a broken neck, paralysis and an uncompromising view at what is achievable in life. Waking up in the hospital as a 17-year-old, Matt’s life had changed unrecognisably. Paralysed from the neck down, ventilator dependent and laying in a specialist spinal cord injury unit, his goals and ambitions had changed along with it. His first goal was simply to survive.

Matt’s view is radically different from others professing the secrets to success, simply because he has been there and done it, and the techniques and strategies he shares work! How will you know this? Well, quite simply, Matt has gone from a paralysed teenager, through to becoming a pioneer pushing the boundaries of what can be achieved in life, irrespective of one’s situation.

First class honours law degree, legal career, mouth painting artist, skiing the slopes of Sweden, completing global marathons and writing his autobiography – Matt is the real deal! Sharing the same skills and techniques he has used to excel, those hearing the emotive and provocative way Matt shares his journey will gain an all-important perspective of the challenges they face and leave armed with the practical tools to maximise their potential in both their personal and professional lives.

Described by The Independent as ‘the inspirational journey of an inspirational man’, the rollercoaster of emotions Matt leads you through will have you coming away inspired and empowered to be the best YOU can be. Matt has worked with the best, and helped them to become better! Coaching the England Rugby League National team, professional sporting teams, NHS Managerial and Clinical Staff, sector leading corporations and businesses, universities and schools – Matt uses his experiences to help anybody, of any age, overcome the obstacles in their path.

Matt was awarded an OBE in 2012 for services to charity for those with disabilities, and in doing so became the youngest person ever to receive the honour. An absolutely fantasic motivational speaker, Matthew King OBE is a prime example of what sheer determination and commitment can get you. Matthew King OBE motivates his audience with his truly inspirational story of success.
