Big Wave Surfer, Motivational and Corporate Governance Speaker


As a world class big wave surfer, Red Bull Athlete and Surf Contest Director Mark Mathews has become obsessed with the relationship between personal growth, high performance and fulfilment.

Winner of an unprecedented 3 back to back Oakley Big Wave Awards, Mark has cemented himself as one of the best big wave surfers in the world.

Current work:
As a highly sought after international speaker, Mathews’ surfer chill vibe and magnetic charisma, has graced the stages of leading companies worldwide.

From Google, Sony, Intel, to MasterCard, he instantly captures audiences with his epic tales and spectacular big wave surf vision.

His compelling story offers game changing tips to adapt to stress, harness resilience and perform when it counts. He has deconstructed, fine-tuned, and personalised emotional resilience techniques to successfully strengthen ones mindset and sustain long term performance.

We engaged Mark to deliver the last session on the last day of 3 day APJ event, and he had the audience hooked from the beginning; in the end he had people queuing to meet him in person. Mark’s passion is contagious, he is inspiring, and at the same time he is incredibly humble. He conveys his message and story in a way that transcends industry, language and culture, and is relevant for all of us, both professionally and personally. I am privileged that we can continue to work with Mark, and in doing so we are giving others the chance to be inspired to push beyond their own boundaries. SAP

Like no other. No one comes close. I have been speaking across the globe for over a decade and never have I been so moved or inspired by a speaker as I was with Mark Mathews. His ability to move an audience with his stories of resilience, courage and humour were unprecedented. The standing ovations that he received across the country as part of the Future of Leadership series on 2018 were testament to his speaking ability and his humility. Mark not only delivered on stage, like no other, but he is equally congruent off stage as well.

We recently had Mark speak at our annual sales incentive trip. Mark was fabulous, he had everyone on the edge of their seats with his wild and inspiration tales. Mark conveys his key messages with conviction, authenticity and humour, relating and applying his experiences to the business and corporate worlds. If you want an unforgettable speaker that radiates courage and belief, Mark is your man.


We loved having Mark Mathews take part in the launch of Intel’s 6th Generation Core Processor in Sydney. Mark has a great story, he is passionate and is an absolute natural on stage. He is a true professional and we look forward to working more with him in the future.


People were captivated by Mark’s talk, he was genuine and authentic and his message resonated well with our managers. - I was so pleased to hear all the compliments and thank you’s from faculty and staff for having Mark close out our cross functional segment of TAP


It was a pleasure having Mark at our Google Culture Event. Mark's story and his view on how to tackle fear highly resonated with the team, not only from a professional stand point but also on how to view life. Mark is now a good friend of Google and we look forward to working with him in the future


Mark provided an awe inspiring session for our early stage companies, drawing parallels with the challenges they face and his own experiences. In a powerful yet unassuming way, he drew us all in to his story in a really down to earth way, while conveying the high drama of a career lived out in the waves. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Mark’s session Beyond Fear to any group.
