Matheny continues to inspire and motivate through executive coaching and speaking engagements.

“It’s hard to put into words the amazing impact he had on our group. The message he shares is unique because it’s designed to touch both heads and hearts. Mike holds your attention with entertaining baseball stories while the real information flows. He has a down-to-earth charisma about him that’s truly magnetic, and that’s what gives him the ability to teach and inspire.”

Ron Cameron, CEO -KnowledgeLake, Inc.

"This past February Mr. Matheny  spoke to a group of players, parents, boosters and young children at our annual fund raising banquet.  To be very direct, without doubt or reservation, Mike is far and away one of the best –if not the best– speakers I have ever heard.  His professionalism, humor, his message and ability to talk with people of all walks of life is uncanny.  Our audience was “locked in” during his message.   He has the uncommon ability to speak to all groups regardless of age or background. His  preparation, professionalism, intellect,  appearance and  delivery are nothing short of excellent!”

Dan Hartleb, Head Coach-University of Illinois
