Not only has MATT JERNIGAN shadowed and coached over 200 physicians, he also presents one of the most innovative, unique, game-changing Keynote/Training Presentations that will break down any barriers that typically keep your employees from evolving and being receptive to new ideas. Although Matt's background is comedy and music, the depth in which he goes in order to teach others how to engage efficiently and effectively knows no bounds.  Matt's audiences have returned to work and immediately implemented new ideas based on Matt's inspiring message to realize and use their gifts and talents.  He uses comedy and music to engage and relate to your group. His strategy includes humor through song parodies and impressions. You will see a desire from your team to improve performance.  Matt's most popular topic is Patient Experience.  Although improvement is being made in the industry, Matt knows that there is much more to be done. He is an expert at "engaging" audiences.  This in turn models the very thing he teaches others about engagement.  He uses his humor to lighten the mood, his music to inspire and relate, and his storytelling to genuinely connect with the heart. He inspires by speaking on "Truth of Appreciation".   He takes you on a ride to acknowledge your gifts to enhance your "Progression". He proves how we are a great big "Family".  And he challenges you to have a "Mind Shift" in order to grow and become more effective.  

With Matt’s unique twist on every style of music, along with hands-on audience participation, your employees will learn a new way to build skills, and they will see added value in their job. This, in turn, allows them to take ownership.  Matt spends much time in researching the landscape of your industry and uses a systematic approach to identifying key issues.  He uses several proven techniques and real world examples that leave lasting impressions. His deep desire is that your company can achieve far more than imagined, that your employees retain valuable training principles and practices, that you receive tools that promote sustainable implementation, and that you have fun doing it!

"Matt Jernigan is an exceptionally creative presenter! He was able to adapt his unique blend of skills for our Henry Ford staff with great ease. Matt is able to beautifully blend relevant content, examples, creativity, and humor in a way that is lively and engaging for a diverse group of professionals.  I heard from many staff that they applied ideas they learned in the presentation back at their departments. Because of his ability to be so flexible in his approach, Matt has proved to be a wonderful think partner. He is extremely sincere in wanting to create lasting and measurable results."
