It was three weeks before the Christmas holidays in Australia and Matthew Pollard, author of "The Introvert’s Edge", needed a job. He had told his parents he would find work after completing school and he wanted to be faithful to his promise…plus he had no money. The difficulty was very few companies were interested in hiring someone before the holidays; then stopped hiring at all during the holidays. The only job Matthew could find was in door-to-door sales. After being briefed on the product, Matthew headed to the streets to start his career as a door-to-door salesperson....The rest is history!
Young, energetic, contemporary, relatable, a powerhouse of differentiation, an expert in niche marketing, and a master sales systemization coach, Matthew is passionate about helping organizations thrive and succeed. With five multimillion-dollar business success stories to his name, all before the age of thirty, his achievements are reflected in the value and credibility he brings to every presentation.
Matthew’s meteoric rise against all odds – and his honesty in sharing his personal challenges – creates an inspirational atmosphere of possibility and belief. Participants walk out of his presentations thinking, “If he can do it, so can I”… and with a complete understanding of the exact steps to follow to skyrocket their success.
