EPISODE: 78 | DATE: June 23, 2022
“We believe that each one of [our students] should be the hero in their own story and not a bystander in somebody else’s script for their life.”
As a Keynote Speaker, Consultant, and Coach to organizations around the world, Matt Beaudreau’s clients have ranged from Wells Fargo, Honeywell, and Lockheed Martin to American Eagle, Cedars-Sinai and the United States Air Force. Matt has a reputation as a provocative thought leader in educational and personal development practices. He is a two-time featured TEDx speaker and he was named Corporate Trainer of the Year at Stanford University, having spoken to over 250,000 people across the world.
In 2017, Matt Beaudreau Founded Acton Academy Placer; a school that utilizes the Socratic method, with an emphasis on
self-direction and cultivating confident, independent young people with a strong sense of character and personal responsibility. He has since helped to open multiple campuses around the world.
Pulling from his experience in the Acton model, in January of 2021, Matt co-founded Apogee Strong with Tim Kennedy, a mentorship program designed for young men from 12 to 22 to take on challenges presented by men who have come before them, in order to learn to lead. It is a right of passage through mentorship, action, and self-discovery so that young men can become true leaders.
His podcast, The Essential 11, is also geared towards emerging leaders, garnering advice
from the world’s leaders in business, sports, music and entertainment.
