"Matt is an incredible speaker on the issue of child sexual abuse. He is very open about how his personal family background increased his vulnerability to his sexual predator and how he was affected by the grooming process. He is well-spoken, honest, informative and very down to earth. His ability to reach out to people is another of his endearing qualities. He stresses the need for our society to quit trying to sweep this problem under the rug and to be bold enough to take a stand to stop child sexual abuse from occurring. I would highly recommend Matt as a speaker for your event!"
"Our dinner last week was wonderful and everyone loved having Matthew Sandusky as our speaker. Thank you!"
"He was a fabulous speaker! Both students and faculty in the audience told me how much they enjoyed it, although 'enjoyed' is really the wrong word for what he said. 'Moved' would be a better word."
