Matt Birk Speaker Biography


Super Bowl champion Matt Birk is a 15-year veteran of the National Football League. Since retiring from football in 2013, Matt has held several roles inside the NFL League Office. A native of St. Paul, Minnesota, Matt was drafted by the Minnesota Vikings in 1998 and was a key off-season acquisition of the Baltimore Ravens in 2009. A six-time NFL Pro Bowl Selection and two-time All-Pro, Matt proved to be an undisputed leader on the field and was named the sixth smartest athlete by Sporting News. More importantly, he has established a legacy of community service that will last far beyond his years of football.

A graduate of Harvard University with a degree in economics, Matt is the founder and CEO of Matt Birk and Company, LLC. He was the recipient of the 2011 Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year award for his excellence on and off the field, including his commitment to emphasizing the importance of education through his H.I.K.E. Foundation. Established in 2002, H.I.K.E. stands for hope, inspiration, knowledge, and education, and impacts the lives of at-risk children by providing interactive programs and resources needed to guide a child through key educational transitions.

Matt also launched the “Ready, Set, Read!” program in Baltimore-area public schools to motivate and encourage more than 100,000 students to read at home through a system of incentives. He partnered with Scholastic to form “Read and Rise,” an initiative to join schools, families, and communities together in supporting the development of children’s literacy.

Matt parlays his diverse experiences culled from winning championships, creating partnerships, and educating others into a memorable message that connects with attendees and transforms audiences. He speaks to organizations across the country about the value of true inspiration, lasting leadership principles, the dynamics of teamwork, and fulfilling potential. Clients such as 3M, Coca Cola, Northwestern Mutual Life, and Walmart have benefited from the programs Matt has presented to their teams.

Matt is a member of the Board of Directors of the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Game for Life National Advisory Board, the Gridiron Greats Assistance Fund Board of Directors, and sits on the Board of Directors for the After the Impact Fund. He is the author of All-Pro Wisdom: The Seven Choices that Lead to Greatness and resides in Mendota Heights, Minnesota. Matt and his wife, Adrianna, are the proud parents of eight children.

The 7 Choices That Lead to Greatness

Your intentions don't determine your destination...your path does!  Based on Matt’s best-selling book, The 7 Choices are a framework that show you HOW to construct a path that will put you on a trajectory for greatness.

Leading To Win

Star players can win games, but its the bottom of the roster that ultimately wins championships. Good leadership reaches everyone and gets them fully engaged in the mission.

What Makes Teams Great

The NFL offers an interesting study into the world of competition.  The League attempts to level the playing field by legislating parity and fixing almost all the variables. Get an insider's look as to why and how some teams have a competitive advantage, year after year.  These principles are easily applied to any business or organization.

Using Your Compass

Navigate through the journey of life using key fundamentals which will allow you to live with more confidence, passion, consistency, and focus.  When you have these things you are equipped to deal with the inevitable challenges, personal and professional, that we all will encounter in life.
