CONTACT / COST
Having lived in the world of higher education budgets I’m sensitive to money spent on programs. Who you bring to campus is an important decision and should consist of careful consideration. My fees are generally based on what is expected of me on a campus, travel logistics, etc. To get the process started please contact me by email.
In return for my speaking fee you will be provided with high quality programs that connect with your specific campus needs and student population. Most of the schools I’ve presented at have had me return for follow-up presentations.
In addition, it’s always nice if I can get a pass to your campus recreation center. This allows me to have informal interaction with some of your students, and most importantly I can move my body after traveling.
I intentionally don’t work with a representative agency because I like direct communication with schools I visit.
You can be ensured I will effectively communicate with you in order for my visit to be smooth.
I like to present on a variety of health topics, but I do have my favorites. Due to the intersecting nature of most health topics, many of the following topics can be combined.
I am not protective of my time as a speaker. I’ve done everything from a single campus presentation to four presentations over the course of two days. If you’re interested in bringing me to your campus I encourage you to communicate directly with me your needs, and how I can serve your organization best.

“Matt is easy to work with and a wealth of knowledge. Our students enjoyed his presentation, which was engaging, packed full of information and relatable for college aged students. He also facilitated staff training which were well received and sparked a lot of conversations on our campus.”
"Matt is the most open-minded, nonjudgmental, down to Earth person I know. I believe it is these traits that allow him to be so well received when speaking on the topics of alcohol, drugs, and other areas of wellness.
He has the ability to engage and inspire many to think critically about health and wellness issues, and leaves a lasting impression on those he interacts with. Having the privilege of learning from and working with Matt during graduate school is the reason I am in the field of health promotion today."
"Matt Vogel is a gifted orator, presenter, and professional. Without a doubt, he will deliver an engaging, inspirational, and up to date and timely presentation with students or faculty.
From the outset, Matt will tailor his work with what your organization needs; he is a pleasure to work with and very accommodating. We have had exceptional experiences each and every time he was on campus."
