We are defined by the challenges we conquer.
Matty Lovell is living proof of what mindset, a plan and discipline can achieve. From a wheelchair he conquered depression, travelled the world, started a business and ran a marathon. Along the way he discovered things that became the framework for a life less ordinary.
In 2011 he found himself in the heart of the Christchurch earthquake. Safe from the initial shake he spent 8 hours working at the collapsed PGC building pulling survivors from the rubble. Later the same year an accident left him with two broken knee caps and a diagnosis that he’d never run again. A lot to deal with for anyone and the emotional stress took its toll on the 25 year old as he began battling depression and learning to walk again.
Matty is an entrepreneur, owning his own gym in Christchurch. He also hosts his podcast Road To Success where he interviews world class performers and experts to help uncover thought provoking insights and inspire listeners.
As a speaker, Matty shares a raw and uplifting story of how he overcame adversity and how he’s used the same framework to take on new challenges, in business and in life including a 3,000km journey across India in a Rickshaw, raising $85,000 for charity.
With insightful takeaways relevant in both business and life, Matty shares a powerful message told from the heart that empowers the audience to take on challenges, re-think possible and start leading your own life - proving that our biggest challenges are our biggest opportunities!

Recently we had the pleasure of having Matty Lovell speak at our Company Sales Conference. Matty was able to adapt his presentation to fit with our “Think Big” conference context and immediately had the full attention of all staff. Delivering a powerful message spoken from the heart, his story was inspiring and uplifting. All in attendance were able to relate to Matty’s story in some context, whether it be on a personal or business level. His mantra of the day “consistency beats intensity” is now often included in staff conversations! I would highly recommend Matty as a guest speaker. A genuinely nice guy sharing an uplifting story about overcoming the odds, presented with sincerity and humour, which will definitely leave a lasting impression on all who hear it.
Matty spoke to a large group of students about Innovation and Entrepreneurship. Matty used his and other businesses as case studies to show us why businesses had succeeded while others had failed over time. He made it simple and interesting and the students were extremely captivated by his story.
