One of the world's most respected pilots.

Chase your dreams every day, You owe it to yourself!

Matt Hall is a unique story of an ordinary man doing extraordinary things.

Matt is an experienced speaker who specialises on his core strengths of Goal Setting (short, medium and long term), Risk Management (in all areas of life from getting shot at to career changing decisions), and Prioritisation (time management).

He is able to convey his story of humble beginnings, but setting unimaginable goals then pushing himself hard to exceed them. A highly self-disciplined individual, Matt is respected for his ability to
communicate with people at all levels and is greatly admired for his focus under pressure and leadership qualities. He is an outstanding motivator and is a popular public speaker, mentor and role model.

Matt Hall is a fantastic story of a very proud Aussie who always looks forward and now says, “…I can and I will…”.

Previous experience

RAAF: A retired Wing Commander Fighter Pilot in RAAF, he is a combat veteran of Iraq, with USAF medals for heroism under fire in his F-15E, supporting troops on the ground.

Pilot: Matt is a highly credentialed and skilled fighter pilot- he was once the RAAF’s Fighter Pilot of the Year - with nearly 2000 F/A-18 Hornet hours, over 500 hours in the F-15E Strike Eagle, including combat, who ranked at the top of his class in every military flying course he ever undertook. In 2009, following a decorated career as a RAAF combat fighter pilot, Australia’s very own top gun became the first Australian ever to compete in the Red Bull Air Race World Championships, the fastest and most exciting sport on the planet.

Matt finished the season third overall to become the first rookie in history to end his debut season on the podium. Not bad for a normal kid growing up on a NSW central coast farm being told “…you can’t…”.

Red Bull Air Race: He has since won seven rounds of the Red Bull Air Race World Championships and in 2019 became Australia’s first ever air race WORLD CHAMPION. He also finished runner-up in the world title standings three times.

Author: Matt Hall is the author of The Sky Is Not The Limit and can include book sales and signings with any keynote.

Matt Hall spoke recently at our annual conference, his presentation was both enthralling and inspiring. His story of courage and perseverance captured the interest of our attendees and in fact caused many to comment on how valuable his speech was. Matt spoke with such intensity and passion, he drew the audience in and painted a vivid picture of his experiences. His determination throughout his career, although unique in its character, is something that we can all aspire to. Sir Walter Group

We engaged Matt Hall to enhance our company’s risk management capability and what we received was far beyond what we could have ever expected. Our experience with Matt made us more inquisitive about how great we could really become. Matt’s real-life experiences, the knowledge he imparted and the, “I’m just the same as you” approach left us all reflecting and acting on the opportunities that we have to be safer people and more importantly the reasons why. Matt introduced a common and down to earth risk management language that still echoes around our work environment. I would encourage any organisation to talk with Matt and his team if you are looking for a way to inspire and motivate a mind-set.


QBE booked Matt Hall a number of times. We were so impressed by his ability to captivate an audience that we engaged him as the QBE Airmanship Ambassador. The risk mitigation and risk management take away from Matt’s presentations is so thought provoking that it can be applied to any industry or vocation. I recommend Matt highly as a guest speaker, whether it is in the area of airmanship, risk management, motivation, situational awareness or simply entertaining tales from his inspirational life story.
