He has proven experience as a chief executive as well as a “player-coach” in the areas of innovation, marketing, and M&A. Matt is a frequent speaker on business technology, customer relationship management (CRM), and educating our next-generation leaders. He has hundreds of hours of speaking experience at industry conferences, higher education, and community-building events.


Matt's work has been featured in many publications and industry forums, including the forthcoming book The Art and Science of Culture by Chad Carr, M.B.A., Ph.D. and Matt Herzberg, M.A., Ph.D. (ABD) with a foreword written by Tom Peters.

Future Events

Matt will provide a series of talks on decision-making for executives, called "Decide Better: Decision Science for Leaders". This engaging seminar will immerse participants in the mindsets, frameworks, and platforms of decision science and behavioral economics. He is one of many Vistage speakers that has committed to educating, equipping, and encouraging CEOs and Executives.

How do you decide who to assign to a key account, when a phase-gate has sufficient support to proceed, or which projects to execute next? Chances are, you rely on intuition... which could otherwise be known as habits, biases, and, group-think. What if you could elevate your decision-making... to decide using information. To decide better?

This presentation will engage the audience with real examples of how leading companies are using structured Decision Science techniques, and how individuals, teams, and entire organizations can be empowered to use these techniques. Further, demonstrations of how Behavioral Science can be incorporated to allow for qualitative aspects like post-mortems (and pre-mortems!).

Attendees will...

  • Learn how to apply Decision Science to your everyday life... as a decision-maker,
    decision-facilitator, or domain expert [employee, entrepreneur, student, or parent!]
  • Understand how and why organizations use techniques from Weighted Value to Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP), based on real examples from industry and Volley clients
  • Leave informed on these innovative uses of analytics to support decision-making, and equipped with tools and examples to see the world a little differently
