Stop Acting Your Age

Keynote & Panel Matt Havens


Stop Acting Your Age! (generational issues)

If you’ve listened to any other discussion about generational issues at work, then you’ve undoubtedly been told there are four distinct generations operating side-by-side in today’s working world. You’ve then been told the differences between those four generations, and then you’ve been told (although probably not in these exact words) that you need to just deal with all these different people, because they’re not going away and they’re not going to change how they operate. If that advice suits you, fantastic.

However, if you’ve ever been frustrated by how impossible it seems to employ four different strategies to manage four distinct generations, and if you’ve ever felt like you’re the only one who’s being asked to make any changes, then Stop Acting Your Age! is exactly what you need. Because it turns out that there really aren’t four generations. In this hysterical keynote, you’ll learn a simpler way of looking at your own generational picture, and you’ll also learn how to understand, recognize, and resolve every generational issue facing today’s workforce. That’s no exaggeration; by the end of Stop Acting Your Age!, you and your colleagues will walk away with all of the knowledge you’ll need to address 100% of the generational issues you’ll face for the rest of your career. Other generational presentations focus on what people want, but Stop Acting Your Age! will tell you why everyone wants the different things they do. It’s an important distinction, and it will

So get ready to laugh more and learn more than you ever thought possible. Because improving your generational issues doesn’t have to be boring.


  • Learn to replace the complicated four-generation model with a workable dichotomy between older, more experienced workers and their younger, less-experienced counterparts
  • Understand the key cultural, technological, and social changes that have conspired to create a disconnect between team members from these two generations
  • Walk away with several immediately applicable strategies to address and eliminate problems caused by the disconnect mentioned above
  • Inspire a healthier, more robust work ethic in your younger employees (and your older ones, too)
  • Inspire a healthier, more robust attitude toward change in your older employees (and your younger ones, too)


Lead From the Front of the Room with CONFIDENCE!

Speaker Sara Krisher

What if you could be injected with a confidence serum so you could conquer all aspects of your work like a superhero? You’d walk bravely into intimidating meetings. You’d confidently speak with persuasive, calm authority. You’d answer questions and respond with self-assurance. Others would see you as a leader they could trust. They would come to you for answers and follow you willingly. Well, it’s not as easy as an injection, but this kind of confidence is possible to achieve.

2023 Keynotes & Speakers


Matt Havens

Matt Havens


Matt Havens is not your typical speaker. His uncanny ability to provide realworld solutions in a relatable and humorous way have made him one of the quickest up-and-coming speakers in the industry.

Matt’s signature style began in corporate America, where by 25 he pitched the C-suite boardroom of a Fortune 25 company on his plan to lead enterprise-wide transformations to capitalize on the “Millennial” opportunities present in the marketplace and the workforce. Matt’s work soon caught fire, and he began speaking to audiences all over the country, subsequently catapulting up the corporate ladder and leading teams in areas as diverse as marketing, sales, and customer retention. Matt has been at the forefront of driving massively scaled change efforts, started new sales departments, and ran contact centers in 5 different U.S. locations. In short, his approach is baked in reality instead of hyperbole.

Matt now brings his simple yet profound solutions to companies, associations, and small businesses across North America. His stated mission is to put perspective into action – both professionally and personally – by unpacking our true motivations, and specifically how our answers relate to the meaningful relationships and connections we create. The versatility of his experience and expertise is why he’s frequently called upon to address a variety of topics ranging from generational differences, leadership, culture, communication, sales and building successful teams.

Words and ideas can change the world. I believe that leaders can be the most influential when they are their most authentic selves. STAND TALL, a nod to my 6' 1" height and created on the attribute of confidence, empowers leaders to communicate effectively, develop their influence, and make a significant impact. I strive to bring my coaching, speaking, and confidence-building expertise to enable leaders at any level within an organization to become stronger, influential leaders.

As Maya Angelou once said, "People will forget what you say, people will forget what you do, but people will never forget how you made them feel." Her words align directly with what we aim to teach leaders at STAND TALL— at the end of the day, it's understanding how you want people to feel. When you can do this, your language will align with your intention.

Coaching leaders is at the core of my professional experience. As a Professional Certified Coach through the International Coaching Federation, I am committed to harnessing the power of communication, enabling leaders to change the world around them.
