  • MPI:TN Central Luncheon -January 21, 2014
    Matt Tenney introduces the power of being selfless through his story of spending 5.5 years confined to military prison for arranging an unauthorized delivery of government funds, learning to be happy with nothing, living like a monk for over 3 years, and discovering the power of a life devoted to serving others. Drawing on insights from his experiences as a prisoner, monk, sales team leader, and social entrepreneur you’ll walk away with powerful ideas and tools for developing the sales skills that result in closing more sales, generating more referrals, and enjoying coming to work every day.
