Matt Bird is a serial entrepreneur and high-impact communicator and speaker whose topics include Relationology, Dyslexia by Design and Yes I Can.

Matt is the Founder CEO of PublishU enabling over 100 people a year to write, publish and launch their books to a global audience. He has also authored over 20 books himself and writes for The Times newspaper

Matt Bird was in remedial English classes at school and graduated believing he was stupid because that is what most of his teachers told him.

In his twenties, he was diagnosed with dyslexia, and after overcoming the initial stigma, he embraced neurodiversity as his advantage rather than his disadvantage in life. Since then Matt Bird has become a serial business and social entrepreneur with numerous entrepreneurial failures and successes to his name – a few of the latter include Relationology, PublishU, and The Rooftop

He is also the Founder of NAYBA, a global non-profit that works in a dozen countries to support people and communities experiencing vulnerability and isolation.

He has spoken in 50 countries to more than a million people on subjects such as entrepreneurship, growth through relationships, the dyslexic superpower and community transformation.

He lives between Covent Garden, in the heart of London’s West End, and the historic city of Noto, on the island of Sicily, Italy.
