Matt Ellison is a highly sought-after, entertaining and thought-provoking transgender speaker. His life experience as a trans man has fascinated and inspired audiences of all kinds in both private and public sectors in the U.K. and internationally. His insights on change, as someone who has made such a huge and fundamental change himself, apply to everyone in all areas of professional and personal life.

Organisations who have invited Matt to speak include eBay, Mars, Lacoste, KFC, NHS, Lloyds of London, City of London Corporation, Fidelity International, HM Courts and Tribunals, South Wales Police and many more.

Matt has been consulted and interviewed on many occasions. He was recently seen on TV in the high-profile Channel 4 documentary ‘Me and My Penis’, which broke many taboos, covering sex, psychology and men’s mental health issues.

Tailored towards the audience, Matt has something to offer all audiences, including healthcare professionals, businesses, educational institutions, emergency services, political and religious groups, plus more. Depending upon requirements he can delve deep into the mind of what it feels like to be transgender with a story full of highs, lows and humour. He can educate the audience around such things as the medical interventions, social aspects, safe practices for service providers and employers, as well the legal implications of the Gender Recognition Act and the popular Q&A if requested gives the opportunity to answer all those burning questions.

With an increasing number of trans folk having the courage to transition, yet with so many still facing discrimination and ignorance, transgender issues and diversity & inclusion, are currently more relevant than ever.

“The talk given by Matt Ellison as part of the 2021 Mars UK LGBTQ+ Pride Series was thought provoking and inspiring, Matts honest and personal style of storytelling took the audience on an insightful journey into the experiences of transgender people. Matt engaged the audience from start to finish and was open and supportive of questions.” – Mars, Global Food Manufactuer.
“Matt is an eloquent and engaging speaker whose candid style and refreshing quick humour won over our audience. He speaks from the heart in an entertaining yet insightful manner. Matt’s personal journey is so inspiring that we are already planning on bringing him back. If you get a chance to book Matt you will certainly not be disappointed.” – Broadridge.
“A big thank you for a very authentic and thought provoking session today, as part of our harnessing the power of diversity week. In speaking to a number of our senior leaders after the session they all said it made them stop and think, and everyone I spoke to has taken something away from your story. Its a really great way to get a discussion going and the little from analogy was very powerful – simple yet effective.” – Leonie Govan, Dreadnought Alliance
