What People Are Saying

“You have to read Matt’s book, Rebound: From Pain to Passion, and if you are lucky like us, hear
Matt’s riveting presentation about what it was like for him and his family. Life, and the business
of life, is never an undefeated season. Matt’s story is something that is relatable no matter if
you are on a winning business streak or facing an uphill family battle. In my opinion, because
the best wins are the comeback wins. Coach Doherty exceeded all our expectations and was a
fantastic resource in every sense of the word.”
––Richard Formatok Member of the Board, SE US Chapter of Young Presidents’ Organization
Founder and CEO, Klick Works


“Westford United Methodist Church enjoyed a special connection with Matt when he came to
address our congregation. He related his life’s story that people from all walks of life could
easily identify with. Sometimes life does not go like we plan, but life continues and God still has
a plan for us to follow. Matt reminded everyone we have a story to tell and God is there with us
on the mountain top and in the valley.”
––Jeffrey Rushing, Senior Minister, Westford United Methodist Church


“We appreciate Coach Doherty talking with our team about bouncing back and being successful
and trusting the process. It will help give our team a competitive advantage moving forward.”
––LJ Goolsby, Midwest District Manager, Regeneron Pharmaceuticals


“Just finished a webinar with Matt Doherty and over 40 student athletes. Great player, great Coach, but even more importantly a great human being. His book, Rebound-From Pain To Passion, is a must read for anyone who wants to learn how to be a leader in life.”

––Coach McCutcheon at Kellenberg Memorial HS (NY)


“Matt, your talk today was at the top of the list for best speaker/message I’ve heard in a long time. The final point of having a “Director of Truth Telling” will never leave my vocabulary!”

––Herb Harriss, Member, Rotary Club of Charlotte


“A fabulous presentation on leadership from Coach Matt Doherty to Charlotte Rotary. He coached us all today. Not about basketball, but about learning from our failures to become better leaders in our careers, our community, and our families. Truly inspiring.”

––Jerry Coughter President, Rotary Club of Charlotte
