With big dreams and a fire in his belly to see them through, Matthew Seawright seemed poised for success time and time again yet managed to keep falling short. He had a lot of reasons, perhaps more than a few excuses, and a bit of dismay and anger. Seawright was ready to set people straight on what they were clearly missing until he experienced transformative self-reflection and realized the commonality in his broken dreams: it was him. When he put aside his pride and focused on who he could become as a person, life began to change. Matthew Seawright changed his life’s direction forever when he enrolled in a degree program with a New Hampshire-based university in December 2016.

He has since become an entrepreneur, public speaker, and a better leader focused on helping others change the way they do business through effective customer service and direct experience positioning.

As an entrepreneur and customer experience trainer and consultant, Matt’s mantra is: Be Genuine. Be Tactful. Be Effective. Be Efficient. He said, “These leadership characteristics are a part of the message I continuously share wherever I go. I consider them to be a part of my brand and a part of a growing and impactful story.”

Matt received a bachelor’s degree in organizational leadership from Southern New Hampshire University in 2019 and is continually educating himself to meet the needs of the industry. He is a son, a brother, brother-in-law, 1 of 30+ first cousins, a best friend, and confidant. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
