Matt Tenney will speak Sept. 6, 2014 at McCormick Place as part of the Illinois Association of REALTORS® Fall Conference & Expo, bringing with him lessons learned from his biggest failure.

Tenney, who provides the closing keynote for the conference, served five and a half years in prison for his role in trying to divert millions of dollars from the U.S. government. He talks frankly about what he calls his biggest mistake, and the lessons he took away from the experience, and those from spending time as a monk and in business.

Tenney’s talk is titled: Serve to be Great: How Being Selfless will Help You Sell the Roof Off.” He’s just published a book, available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble, called Serve to be Great, and he speaks to businesses and associations nationwide where he teaches leadership and team building. Tenney is a trainer and consultant for the Perth Leadership Institute.
