In his program titled, “It’s Your Life – Dominate it,” Mr. Vitale will utilize an exciting, multimedia presentation to encourage audience members to maximize their own potential by implementing specific, proven techniques, with emphasis on the following points:

· Choose Challenge Over Comfort

· Exemplify Confidence Not Arrogance

· Undoubtedly Be Yourself

· Dwell on What You Have, Not on What You Don’t

· Promote Hope Over Hatred

Well known for his enthusiasm and magnetic personality, Mr. Vitale, president of Matt Birk and Company, LLC, travels worldwide speaking to organizations about the importance of a positive attitude, a strong work ethic, and other vital concepts. His audiences benefit from the many seeds of heroism he has encountered during his travels and experiences with people from the corporate boardroom, to the classroom, and everywhere in between.
