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.

Above all, Matt is a practitioner of business strategy and innovation with powerful lessons learned and war stories to tell from years in the trenches with companies ranging from small startups to companies as large and multinational as Toyota, where he spent eight years as a full-time advisor.

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.
