Matt Langdon

Matt Langdon is one of the world's leading experts on heroism. He is recognized as one of the founders of the global heroism movement, and is relied on to instil a sense of solidarity within a disparate group of experts.

Matt has spoken at schools and businesses across numerous countries as well as the Global Executive Team of Ford, the Public Health Department of the Faroe Islands, and four TEDx events.

His expertise comes from a variety of sources:

  • 12 years at an American summer camp working with kids and young adults.

  • 12 years building the Hero Construction Company and collaborating with Dr. Philip Zimbardo and the Heroic Imagination Project.

  • 5 years running the world's first multidisciplinary conference on heroism, the Hero Round Table.


He has spoken around the world, including such great cities as New York, London, Chicago, Budapest, San Francisco, Boston, and Yarram, Victoria.
Comfortable in front of audiences large and small, young and old, Matt will leave your group inspired to act heroically and instructed on how to do it.

Matt has published the first two books in a series called "The Hero Field Guides" with illustrator, Matthew Osmon. The third will be out in 2019 along with his book on living a heroic life.

After spending 19 years in the United States, Matt now calls southeast Victoria home. He lives with his wife and daughter, both of whom share his love of travel. Neither of them match his chocolate consumption.
