Matt Campana has been in the corporate training and development and meetings and retreat industry for over 15 years. After several years as Director of Sales for Grand Dynamics, an Adventure based team and leadership company in Jackson Hole, WY, Matt was on the forefront of the “give back” retreat movement when he started his own company, Corporate Motivation, Inc, in 2008.
A bold move to open a business at the height of the 2008 financial crisis. The key focus of Corporate Motivation was, and still is, to create a platform for businesses to give back through their retreats, meetings and events. This concept was not only Validated through an eighteen-month Denver University study, but also the start of a trend that still stands true today. The impacts of this commitment have made positive differences in the lives of thousands of people and communities around the globe. Matt’s unique “Hands of Gratitude” program in which the result is the assembly, delivery and donation of 3D printed hands, has impacted recipients, recipient families and entire communities in ways that could not have been predicted. This program has been a reoccurring activity for companies like; Atlassian, Google, Deloitte, Fed Ex, Merck, Abbot, GE Healthcare, Novartis, SurveyMonkey, GulfStream, Facebook, LinkedIn and many, many more.
Additionally, the Hands of Gratitude program is being utilized in schools around the country to not only make a difference in the lives of the recipients but also introducing students to lessons of Gratitude, Empathy, Inclusion and the overall message that ALL KIDS matter and can make a difference.
In addition to Matt’s Business Administration background from Kent State he is also a professional training and development facilitator as well as certified Mindfulness Facilitator.
In his free time Matt enjoys movement in a variety of ways. Skiing, SUP, Trail Running, Golf and
Kayaking are among his passions. Matt was instrumental in helping to develop a nationwide obstacle course race called “the ultimate towner” which was enjoyed by thousands of racers in locations across the country.
