Speaking Topics

Dwayne Matthews is a dynamic inspirational speaker. He has received numerous international accolades for his delivery and his ability to uncover valuable connections.

Matthews delivers real value to his audience by uncovering strategic thinking frameworks and practical applications, that lead to greater attainment in school, work and life. Below are three foundational presentations he delivers at conferences, corporations, organizations and schools. Each topic can be tailored to the industry and organization upon request.

 
  • The traditional model of school is going through drastic changes as a result of the information revolution. Navigating the changes in schooling today is extremely difficult for parents.  Where are the textbooks, spelling tests, math sheets and nightly homework?

    These aspects of school acted as an indirect form of communication between teachers and parents, which informed parents on the progress of the student more than just report cards.

    This missing communication leaves parents feeling out of touch, frustrated, resentful and very insecure about how to help their children. It also leaves parents wondering why the model of school is changing and how can they help to prepare their children for the future.

    The Strategic Parent Experience™ will provide parents with powerful insights about evolving curriculum changes, and strategies to transform student thinking. Parents will have the ability to participate and actively engage in the conversation, as well as reflect on content in the weeks that follow via parent engagement email lessons.

    This presentation will help you to:

      • Learn about society changing technological advances and the effects they will have on your child’s future.
      • Uncover the 4 main strategic ideas that will change the way you and your child focus on school and learning.
      • Explore the key strategy to a successful student.
  • In 2001, while teaching at an inner city school, Dwayne encountered a student who in grade 4 defied many statistics and assumptions about learning, and success. Student X was extremely disadvantaged, had no visible support at home, yet he thrived with a level of resilience that had a profound effect on Dwayne. This set him on a journey of exploration and discovery. How could someone in such a situation master attainment? Could this thinking be captured and taught?

    Along his journey he taught at one of the top private schools in the world, traveled globally, spent time being mentored by a member of a leading US billionaire family, led a company that serviced the Fortune 500 and had access to many top executives.  Matthews curated and codified his 18 year odyssey into a 4 triangle thinking framework based on his observations of highly successful people from all walks of life. Dwayne now shares this framework with international audiences.

    This presentation will uncover a repetitious  cocktail of themes, tools and techniques that when knit together have the uncanny ability to allow the practitioner high levels of attainment of just about anything.  

    This presentation will help you to:

    • Learn about themes used by practitioners of high level attainment
    • Uncover a strategic thinking framework used by highly successful people from all walks of life.
    • Explore practical ways to apply this to work, school and everyday life
  • After getting married Matthews gained a whopping 50lbs in little under 14 months. He stopped exercising, overate and became more and more sedentary.  His health was in jeopardy, his confidence fell, he lacked motivation and  fell into a mild depression because he could not summon the willpower to reverse his downward spiral. He stumbled upon a key mental shift that allowed him to hack his failing willpower, which led to massive weight loss, and increased success in almost all other areas of his life in just 12 months.

    This presentation outlines that mental shift and the practical steps backed by science, as well as  the expected pitfalls along the way and how to overcome them.  Matthews shares insight into how these hacks can be used in all aspects of your life strategy for success and achievement.

    This presentation will help you to:

    • Learn why your willpower will eventually fail you
    • Uncover how a few simple hacks can trick the mind to bypass your failing willpower
    • Explore practical applications that you can use right after the presentation.
