Keynote Speaker: Mitch Matthews

Mitch Matthews is a successful entrepreneur and best-selling author. Mitch's podcast called "DREAM. THINK. DO." has been ranked #1 by the Huffington Post and is the top 5% on Apple Podcasts.

Back in 2006, Mitch and his wife started something called the "BIG Dream Gathering." It began as a "happy accident," but it has since turned into a movement. Since then, Mitch and his "Dream Team" have impacted over a million people through their podcast and their fun and inspiring events. For his keynote speech, Mitch is going to share a little of the story of the BIG Dream Gathering along with a few things he's learned about achieving big dreams along the way.

Then, we're all going to get to experience it first-hand.

Most importantly, Mitch proudly lives a "highly-caffeinated" lifestyle in Des Moines with his wife Melissa and their two sons. The Iowa Student Leadership Experience is looking forward to welcoming Mitch and his keynote speech to Iowa State University.
