I wanted to send a note to say thank you again for all you did to make Leaders Forum a success! The time you offered on the day leading up to Thursday is so appreciated! The feedback we have received on your inspiring keynote so far has been amazing. I sneaked a peak at the evaluations and literally, almost every single one said “More Matt Day!” or “Matt was wonderful”! Thank you again for all your hard work in supporting our people through an inspiring and educational day!


Matt Day made my “Day” as a professional speaker for over 20 years, Matt was our MC for a large event and he handled every conceivable detail upfront with class and care. Not only did he wow the audience with his ability to inject humour, but he was also able to get the audience’s attention at a moment’s notice and keep us all on time. As a speaker, I felt he handled the show perfectly. There are not many MC’s that I’d highly recommend, however, I would highly recommend Matt Day.

I hired Matt Day in 2016 to emcee our Canada Day event at City Hall, he had previously done other events at City Hall and was highly recommended. I was so pleased with his performance that we hired Matt to emcee the Grand Opening of the Downtown Arena in September 2016, New Year’s Eve Downtown 2016 and Family Day 2017. He will be returning to City Hall to emcee our Canada Day event this year. Matt Day is a true professional, an outstanding emcee and a multi-talented artist and musician. It has been a pleasure getting to know him and working with him.

In my 27 years with the City, your presentation, without a doubt, was the best I’ve witnessed at a City AGM. I was not aware of all the places you’ve performed until I read your bio – and then was more than impressed.  Your voice and expertise with the piano are, in my opinion, second to none — yes, that includes Elton John!!  The way you interwove information about the City into “The Crescendo Effect” was brilliant … the message, itself, would be valuable to anyone – either at work or in their personal life!  This was one of those good experiences that will remain in our memories forever!

Matt Day’s lunch performance at one of our NAIT teaching events was a big hit. We had told our instructors to stay in the room for a surprise performance. From the very video announcement of Matt, right to the group song at the end, the audience was just ecstatic. Matt was very inventive with self-created songs, video clips, a slide show, and many jokes. Comments on the evaluation forms included ‘The lunch entertainment was awesome’ and ‘Matt Day was just hilarious’. The performance was completely customized to NAIT, highlighting very NAIT-specific pet peeves, NAIT-isms, and oddities of NAIT’s executives. Besides causing a great amount of laughter, this also contributed to a...

Matt Day– thank you so much for your contribution to the CPA’s National Conference in Edmonton in June. You made such a significant impact at the Opening Ceremonies—from your exciting introduction to the custom song lyrics that showed you’d done your research on what was important to both the Association and the delegates, to your unique humour—all of this made for a meaningful and memorable kick-off. When you re-appeared as the surprise MC at the Awards Banquet the next night, the delegates reacted with such enthusiasm and your professionalism, musical talent and humour added much to the success of the evening. It was my particular pleasure to work with you throughout the...
