„Observing Matt in action reminds me of watching a baseball play-offs game at the Yankee Stadium between Yankees and Red Sox. Whether you are a sports fan or not, the atmosphere is electrifying. Matt is a world-class coach with knowledge and experience much greater than his age. This is really something special.”

The workshop with Matt Domogała was nothing else but an eye opener for me. I have participated in many workshops however this training gave me a huge dose of inspiration and good energy to manage my own potential.
The training shows how important it is to care for our own wellbeing and gives the tools to strengthen ourselves and support others. Thanks to the charismatic trainer we can discover how important it is to take care of our own resilience and life energy to experience life to the fullest both as an employee, leader and a human being. I recommend this workshop for people who always look for something new – this original workshop will surely surprise them. I recommend this workshop for leaders and people who manage others – this meeting will surely present a fresh perspective on motivating and engaging others. I recommend this workshop for those who take care of their psycho-physical well being – they will find many practical ways on how to take care of themselves without reaching for expensive and complicated solutions. There is only one thing I can say after this workshop – I want more!

“We had a pleasure of inviting Matt for two workshops, which were attended by managers from five countries. We had our doubts at first, whether Matt can reach people coming from different cultures and backgrounds. However, our doubts were unfounded! Everyone loved Matt’s personality, knowledge, and most of all the fact that he showed us how to use our inner energy more efficiently. Let the measure of success be the fact that some of the topics and vocabulary have permanently entered our business dictionaries. It is very important that Matt consulted our expectations prior to workshops. Moreover, he took the time to establish a good rapport with the participants, which directly translated to great dynamics of the workshop.”

„The workshop and its subject were immensely inspiring. Personally, I was touched to the core. It initiated a change in my thinking process, because it is true that a human brain tends to think negatively, and the concept “I CAN” shows how to change it in a smart and permanent way. I am definitely planning on implementing proposed solutions into practice, both in my personal and professional life.
I will recommend the “I CAN” workshop to everyone, because I think that you are doing something great. Combination of Matt’s charisma and Małgosia’s knowledge is like Yin & Yang. Keep it up! „
Whirlpool, HR Lead, East Cluster
„Matt is an excellent presenter because he is engaging and keenly aware of the needs of his audience. He is energetic and enlightening. He recently presented for ATD Midlands at our annual conference and expo, and he managed to capture and hold the attention of an audience of trainers and facilitators. Well after his session was over, I observed people talking about what he had shared and carrying around the tools he had offered. His presentation was effective long after it was over.”

„I offered Matt the job to run a workshop to motivate my employees just after a five-minute conversation in my office, and that was the best decision I could have made. It has been 8 months since the presentation and we are still talking about and feeling the energy he shared with us. More importantly we are still using his methods and techniques to motivate ourselves, which makes us sell more effectively.”
Jan Kubica, Director of Commercial Union

„In 2005 I was part of forum “College 4 U” in Polish Consulate in NY. That’s where I saw Matt for the very first time and I participated in his workshop. I felt inspired by his lecture. This experience was godsend. I felt inspired, but more importantly, his lecture gave me faith and made me think: “I can do it! I want to grow!” I incorporated Matt’s tips in my everyday life and I was shocked that I achieved my goals so quickly. Today, after living for 3 years in the US, I am about to graduate, I have a good and fulfilling job with growth possibilities, soon a book in the field of architecture will be published, to which I was an illustrator. In addition I run an academic club and I travel around the US along with other dancers. Matt’s energy, his knowledge and willingness to share his experience with others changed my life forever.”

„Matt is a dynamic speaker and presenter, he uses his sense of humor to entertain his audience, while at the same time teaching them, and sharing his knowledge and ideas. Matt is an excellent storyteller, and I would recommend him as a speaker, presenter and a trainer.”
Joe Arnold, CC, Columbia Toastmasters club member.
„I invited Matt Domogala to deliver a keynote speech at 11th International Conference “Beyond DataBases Architectures and Structures”. Since I met him in NYC at the conference he was leading as a Master of Ceremony I was sure he would do a great job at our conference.
I must admit however that shortly before the event I started having second thoughts about it.
I knew that the audience at our conference – scientists, would be a completely different audience than business people at the conference in Manhattan, which Matt was leading.
I am glad to share that my doubts were gone after first 3 minutes of the presentation. Matt engaged audience from the first words and kept them engaged and active for 60 minutes. The atmosphere was inspiring and energizing. Level of interaction higher than I even expected. Most importantly Matt produced a long lasting results for us.
Not only I got a great feedback from many of the participants but also we were talking about some of Matt’s ideas and using some of his tips and techniques to maximize our experience at the conference.
I really enjoyed when one of the keynote speakers commented Matt’s presentation just after it when he said: “I wish I could present my speech just after Matt’s part when people are so open minded, excited and inspired to listen, learn and support the speakers. Matt did an excellent job”

I could tell that people found it beneficial, they worked at the seminar in the atmosphere of openness, they were curious… you run this workshop in such an energetic (!) and motivational way, and what you say stays in people’s minds and inspires… especially priceless to me were: numerous digressions to scientific findings, sharing your own experiences and reflections, workshop structure including handouts and universal application of proposed solutions – at work and in private life. Thank you on my behalf and behalf of my entire team!”

You are a natural born and seasoned speaker, which was visible when you were upon stage. A lot of us noticed that each word that you said and how you said it was purposeful and planned. You made us realize how important is their knowledge and building a social network at conferences like SQLDay. On my behalf and behalf of other coordinators of the conference, thank you for professional show and a ton of positive attitude. Energize us!”

„…We took advantage of Mr. Domogala’s workshop offer twice so far. In 2015 we had a seminar “Energy of narration and communication” to our managers. This year we decided to continue our cooperation. Mr. Domogala hosted a workshop “I CAN” to a wider group of our employees, including all departments. Participants highly evaluated the workshop (even those who were skeptical initially), which is why I decided to offer this workshop to the remaining part of our team. I can recommend Matt as a solid and professionally prepared business coach, inspiring to take action and bringing fresh energy to the team.”
ABUS Crane Systems Poland, President

I can definitely recommend Matt Domogala.”
