Hello, I’m Matthew Ferrara, philosopher, photographer and keynote speaker. I’ve spent 25 years teaching others how to apply their creativity and ingenuity to their careers and lives. As a writer and photographer, I illustrate interesting connections and unique perspectives that affect our personal and professional success. My programs encourage people to connect their inner beliefs with their daily work, using creativity to make growth fun. I’ve been told I possess a “renaissance mindset” that can pull together the threads of multiple disciplines to illustrate exciting opportunities.

“My philosophy is to only do excellent work. Not because of ratings or reviews or even referrals, but because one day, in an audience of thousands, I might make a difference in the life of one person.”

“Matthew has impressed me from day one, which is why we keep asking him back. He has a rare grasp of the basics of the traditional brokerage business AND the potential for enhancement brought by interactive marketing and media. He understands that it’s about people. Matthew not only has this expertise but he’s a great teacher and presenter, mixing effective delivery of concepts with humor and examples. He’s one of the best consultants/teachers in the business today….a really special talent!”

I’ve heard Matthew Ferrara speak before and typically my head starts swimming about 5 minutes in – his knowledge in that field is incredible, to say the least.  That being said – his presentation on Thursday touched the “real-side” of our business and it was SPECTACULAR! Loved the entire presentation

Not only does Matthew become the voice of innovation and technology for realtors, but the advocate for deploying the fundamental skills and practices needed to be successful. Quick on his feet, creatively outstanding and fiercely loyal, Matthew is both visionary and role model within the industry.”
