We’re excited to announce Freshii Founder and CEO, Matthew Corrin, as the 2017 keynote speaker at the Small Business Calgary Conference!

At 23 years old, Matthew set out to create a restaurant brand that would help people all over the world live healthier and longer lives with fast food that is convenient and affordable. Enter Freshii: a brand which is now growing at a faster pace than Starbucks. Today, Freshii has over 240 locations in countries around the world, and Matthew is well on his way to building a billion dollar business.


Matthew offers audiences insight on business success and what it takes to grow a successful global brand. He inspires audiences interested in growth, leadership, company culture, and embracing opportunity. A self-described ‘American-attitude CEO,’ Matthew’s direct speaking style will motivate audiences rethink their approach to business, risk and opportunity.

At the same time, he talks about the need for businesses to have a positive effect on the world. Matthew’s beliefs in the power of the triple bottom line: people, profit and the planet, will inspire audiences to achieve success by strategically tapping into this new consumer mindset.
