Matt Zinman is a difference-maker devoted to personally enriching the ‘Happierness’ of at least 100 million people by 2030. His highly acclaimed book, “Z-isms: Insights to Live By” embodies his experiences as an entrepreneur, athlete, single parent, caregiver and nonprofit founder.

In addition to speaking and publishing his second book (due out in Fall 2022), Matt has adapted Z-isms into highly practical Employee Enrichment Programs for organizations with a people-first culture. These on-demand courses include the “Mindset Reset” and the comprehensive “Life Upgrade,” which involve a holistic approach to talent development and life improvement. 

Matt is also a frequent speaker, podcast guest and advocate of work-based learning. He founded The Internship Institute, a nonprofit devoted to helping employers and students make experience matter. His first career in marketing and communication management led him in 2002 to establish his first company, Z Communication, Inc., specializing in employee relations.

He resides in Bucks County with his wife, Erica and their two emerging adults, Greta and Jake. Matt enjoys playing ice hockey, motorcycling, biking, running, cooking and family time.


[def.] Happierness is the premier mindset of Z-isms to be intentionally present and have a reflex of positivity by choosing to make the best of every situation.
