What you'll do

As an Olympic champion, I’ve shared my winning strategies with audiences all over Australia. Now you can have the same experience in your own home, wherever you are.

First, I'll tell you about my background and my sporting journey to give you a bit of context. Hopefully this will reassure you that if I (an overwhelmingly mediocre child crippled with low self-esteem and ADHD) can goal-set successfully, then you can, too.

Then, we’ll talk through the strategy I use to set and achieve goals: SMART Goals. Afterward, I’ll help you with your own goal-setting and leave you with the insight and tools to achieve whatever you set your mind to.

I’ll give you the tricks I use to stay hyper-focused and motivated, for short- and long-term goals. Within this framework, we develop various levels of failsafes to keep even the flakiest of us on track. I’ll leave a bit of time at the end to answer questions about diving, the Olympics, or me.

As a child, I had one overwhelming dream in my life: to be the best in the world at something... (anything!)

After years of diving with no formal goal-setting in place and few notable achievements, I took a year off and started from scratch with properly structured goals in place. Fifteen months later, I won at the Olympic Games.

After Beijing 2008, I used the same goal-setting strategy to achieve my #1 World Ranking in 2010. And then, wanting to round out my career with a golden trifecta, I set myself the goal of winning a Commonwealth Games gold, which I did in 2014.
I have since used these same goal-setting strategies to achieve other goals in my life, such as producing an award-winning cabaret show (Twists & Turns, 2014) and quitting drinking (5 years of total abstinence, and counting)!

Matthew was incredibly personable and engaging! His story is rich and inspiring and provides unique perspectives on how he overcame adversity, and made a slight change in mindset to go from very good, to elite, both as a person and Olympic diver.

This experience was great! Matthew shared a lot of his personal journey which helped me understand how he became successful at his goal of winning Olympic gold. He also personalised the experience to the group and used our goals in his examples to help us understand how to best achieve them. I learned a lot and felt connected to Matthew and the group in a unique way.

Wonderful experience. Matthew's unique insight and perspective on SMART goals made me revisit a concept I was familiar with from a brand new angle. Loved it some much I recommended to my sister... who took the experience and loved it too :).
