Client Reviews

  • “Matt Dominguez spoke at our Annual Fundraising Banquet in November 2014. He became prepared not only on the topic we asked him to speak on but also on our organization. Matt kept the audience’s attention with his stories and jokes.”
  • “Matt is an outstanding speaker. His presentation was excellent. Our feedback from the attendees was very positive regarding his remarks. He was professional, humorous, very polished, and had a great message.”
  • “after hearing Matt speak, it’s safe to say many were pleasantly surprised – and very impressed. Besides sharing football antidotes from his days as a Roughrider, Matt shared stories of work he’s done on the radio. Perhaps most inspiring was the message Matt shared of being grateful for what life has to offer. While Matt’s presentation provided many laughs, it also made you think about your life and never taking for granted what you have.”
