Matt Jackson convinces us to let go of our identities in order to take a chance
About the speaker
What am I? My heart is sensitive. My mind is inquisitive. When my heart and mind are in synch I have the affect of encouraging people. Most of all I enjoy asking questions through poetry and riddles, but I experiment in all kinds of creative mediums which includes business as I believe there is an art to great business. I ran the Drawing Book Studios for 9 years before founding affectors. I am also a proud member of the Entrepreneur’s Organisation and from 2013-2014 I moderated a monthly Forum between 9 talented entrepreneurs called the Roundtable and we were awarded Best Forum for the period by the Sydney Chapter.
I believe that how you are feeling has the greatest impact on how you experience life. As an affector I enjoy running workshops with other affectors that train the creative, intuitive and emotive parts of the brain. I am a passionate speaker and in 2014 I have greatly enjoyed moving the hearts and minds of audiences at TEDX, VIVID, Wired For Wonder, Create Now and The Entrepreneur’s Organization. On a one-on-one basis I have helped brands like Adobe, CBA, QBE and Johnson & Johnson to encourage a culture of courage, creativity and connection. My most proud affectors collaboration to date is the Adobe Heart Tree that is currently on display at Westfield Bondi Junction.
