A speaker, trainer, and executive coach, Matt Lutz has over 30 years of communicating with and educating audiences of all types. Before becoming a SME and trainer, he served 10 years as a non-commissioned officer in the U.S. Marine Corps, spent twenty-one years pastoring and successfully built a large church from scratch (growing from 7 to 200 members), and served as a top sales performer. He even performed on stage as a singer and dancer at Walt Disney World. This unconventional journey has given Matt an in-depth understanding and wisdom that he draws upon to aid organizations when navigating change.
