Matt Long | Speaker Biography

Survived a catastrophic accident involving a 20-ton bus
Completed the 2008 New York City Marathon after severe injuries
Inspirational speaker at events like TEDx and for companies like Morgan Stanley

On the morning of December 22, 2005, Matt's life was forever altered. While cycling to work, he was struck and run over by a 20-ton bus that was making an illegal turn. The injuries he sustained were so severe that they brought him to the brink of death, resulting in a five-month stay in the hospital. After undergoing more than 40 operations, he finally embarked on a grueling rehabilitation regimen. The psychological impact of the accident was almost as difficult for Matt to process as the physical injuries. He faced months of fear, despair, loneliness, and excruciating physical and psychological pain in his quest to regain the life he once had. However, his recovery was nothing short of miraculous. He not only relearned how to walk but also accomplished the incredible feat of running in the 2008 New York City Marathon, a mere three years later. Now, Matt shares his inspiring story of determination and perseverance with audiences across various platforms. From corporate giants like Morgan Stanley to high-energy events like NASCAR, as well as virtual platforms like Zoom.us and TEDx Gotham, Matt's tale of immense resilience serves as a beacon of hope and inspiration for countless individuals facing their own adversities and challenges in every aspect of life.
