Imagination is the key to coaching. When Matt watches a game, he sees things others don’t. Not because he’s looking more closely at individual plays. But because he sees what’s possible. As a coach, Matt helps teams think about the game more creatively, so they can see the field more clearly. As CEO of Beyond Pulse, he applies learnings from his varied experience across professional sports, finance, education, and entertainment, to nurture a culture of curiosity and personal growth. When not on the field, Matt’s constant companion is a book—just ask him what he’s reading today.
