Award Winning Keynote Speaker Returns to VILLAGE SUMMIT 2023

Earlier this week the we announced  award winning keynote speaker, Matt Church, will return to VILLAGE SUMMIT in 2023.

Presented by the DCM Institute, VILLAGE SUMMIT is a single-day event in five cities celebrating Village Managers. The sector’s foremost executives will share their expertise and explore the latest trends, innovations and strategic insights. Delegates will come away with new ideas and new connections.

“We are excited to have Matt join us in person around the country this year,” said James Wiltshire, Executive Director of the DCM Institute.

A visionary leader who has dedicated his life to inspiring and empowering individuals to be the best version of themselves. Matt firmly believes leaders are aware that leading yourself, leading others and leading change are the three critical orientations for doing the job well.

“There are many such ‘moments of truth’ in our days, where what we choose to say and do, how we show up, and the intent we hold as we go about our lives, impact the people and world around us. Leadership happens in moments, not meetings”– Matt Church

Founder and creator of Thought Leaders, Matt, is an author of many leadership books all working on the premise that when you choose leadership, and identify as such, you contribute to making the world a better place.

“Matt is a speaker who both inspires and challenges the status quo. We’ve spoken a lot about change in our sector, and the opportunity this presents for staff at the coal face and Matt is the perfect partner for year’s event,” James said.

At VILLAGE SUMMIT 2023, Matt will focus on disruption and lead the conversation around the importance of leaders having a culture of willingness to adapt in order to be agile, creative and build their foresight to take to on the opportunities ahead.

It was a sell out event last year with a 92% satisfaction score. The full program for each capital city can be found here, with registrations now open.

“Our intention for the day is for Village Managers to come away with a renewed passion for the vital work they do for their communities.  And we are making sure there is plenty of time for catching up with the network drinks starting at 4pm.  Getting together with their team mates from across the country is what previous delegates have told us is a real value ad for the day”, said James Wiltshire, Executive Director of the DCM Institute.
