Matt Ellison is an inspiring and thought provoking transgender speaker, powerfully exploring topics around Diversity & Inclusion, LGBTQ+, Resilience, Courage and Change.
His life experience as a trans man means those who hear Matt speak are inspired and encouraged. The principles of facing something so profoundly difficult and making such a huge and fundamental change apply to people in all areas of their professional and personal lives.
Tailored towards the specific audience, Matt has something to offer all audiences, including healthcare professionals, businesses, educational institutions, emergency services, political and religious groups, plus more. Depending upon requirements he can delve deep into the mind, exploring what it feels like to be transgender with a story full of highs, lows and humour. He is able to educate the audience around important areas such as the medical interventions, social aspects, safe practices for service providers and employers, as well the legal implications of the Gender Recognition Act. Moreover, Matt’s popular Q&A sessions, if requested, give audiences the opportunity to answer all those burning questions.
In today’s more accepting modern society, the number of trans people having the courage to transition is doubling every few years. This topic is relevant to many areas of Diversity & Inclusion and is something everyone should know more about.
Matt was recently invited to speak at the Lloyd’s Dive In Festival in Chatham. Matt shared his life story and how the decisions he made throughout have affected him. Matt was very engaging and his talk opened my eyes to the difficulties faced by Matt and others in similar situations. Matt is obviously very passionate about helping others and telling his story, so others are confident in taking the first step to changing their lives. Matt was able to share useful resources to the group and was keen to speak to members of the audience on a personal level after the talk. A thought provoking talk. Lloyds of London
Matt had the audience captivated with his own incredible and courageous personal story. I have to say it was one of the best sessions I have ever seen delivered at a Pharmacy Conference and I have been to many in my 24 years as a pharmacist professional. Matt has a natural ability to speak confidently and effortlessly to a large audience and has personality and speaker content to keep an audience hanging on his every word.
I cannot recommend Matt more highly. Associate Director of Medicines Management, NHS
