Matthew E. May is an internationally recognized thought leader on strategy, innovation, and lean. Working as a solo advisor and coach, he specializes in helping senior executives and their teams craft winning strategies and develop innovative approaches that result in sustainable competitive advantage.

Matt has written five books on innovative thinking, his latest being WINNING THE BRAIN GAME: Fixing the 7 Fatal Flaws of Thinking, to be published by McGraw Hill in May, 2016. His work has appeared in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Strategy+ Business, The Rotman Magazine, Fast Company, and the Harvard Business Review blogs.

Matt holds an MBA from The Wharton School and a BA from Johns Hopkins University, but he counts winning The New Yorker cartoon caption contest as one of his most creative achievements.

Mr. May has a deep passion for ideas that solve a difficult problem in an elegant way. He defines an elegant solution as one that is both uncommonly simple and surprisingly powerful, and that achieves the maximum effect with minimum means. Elegance through subtraction is his guiding philosophy.

Matt May blends his frontline experience with research from his books in order to deliver useful concepts with immediate application, and aims to achieve four things in every address: 1. inspire new thinking; 2. share a unique perspective; 3. tell compelling stories; and 4. deliver practical takeaways.
