"HEALTHCARE IS A MARATHON"

MATT JONES


Matt Jones, a national inspirational speaker, created this presentation to empower physicians to thrive in the fast-changing and complex world of healthcare.  Physicians will gain inspiration, motivation, and skills designed to elevate one’s performance and improve the effectiveness of patient care.  Matt’s talk is based on his experience of going from being a three-time cancer conqueror and having survived a bone marrow transplant.  After relearning to walk, he completed seven marathons on seven continents and yes, that includes Antarctica.

 

He is the founder of the R.E.A.L. Leadership Academy and has authored over ten books including his newest one, “Happiness is a Marathon:  26 Ways to Stay Happy at Work and in Life”.

 

Matt uses his story of overcoming insurmountable odds to motivate audiences to achieve greater victory during these times of change and uncertainty.
