Discover how you can thrive in the right selling system, build a portfolio your co-workers will envy, and learn to take control of your banking career, entirely online, and all for less than you probably spent on coffee last month.


"Before enrolling in Matt’s online course, I was new to banking, previously working as an attorney. I didn't have a process to sell and hadn't started building a portfolio at another institution like most of my co-workers...I built my follow-up system and conversations exactly as Matt outlined, and after four months, my pipeline is up $15 million, I've reached my quarterly goal for the first time, and earned a hefty incentive check! I already feel like I'm in control of my banking career, and Matt's training has just opened up the opportunities for my family even more...I'm less stressed when I'm home, and love having the blessing of being able to spend so much quality time with my 2 year old daughter."

What Will I Learn in the Cool Bankers Academy?


"Just wanted to let you know how much I’ve been taking away from you and how much I appreciate it. I finally feel like I’m learning sales skills that are applicable to the banking business. It’s crazy, I’ve gone through a ton of other programs and yours is the first with real direction that I know can work for bankers like me. Worth every penny."

When it comes to taking control of your banking career, many people are so close to their career they don’t know where to start. Cool Bankers Academy helps bankers develop the right sales skills from how to find the right prospects, mastering the conversation, communicating your value beyond price, and so much more...entirely online...So you don't have to figure everything out for yourself.

Cool Bankers Academy is lead by Matt Middendorp, a 10 year banking veteran with an award-winning career until he launched Sales Math. By helping over 1,000 bankers in 20 states, Matt has his finger on the pulse of what can grow a banking career no matter where you are located, size, or type of institution. 



Here's The Plan Once You Join...

  1. Sales Systems & Resources: Matt believes in helping bankers, not banks. In the Cool Bankers Academy you will gain instant online access to proven selling systems, strategies, processes, and best practices that you can apply in order to increase your sales, avoid the common bank sales pitfalls, and how to sell smarter rather than harder. 
  2. Time Investment: The average Cool Banker will invest 75 minutes in their growth per week through the Academy course.  Each week you will dig into the videos, complete worksheets, transition the information gained into your day to day by answering Key Questions for Success, as well as implement what you learned in the LIVE Office Hours sessions.  Becoming a true expert takes commitment and dedication, and the Cool Bankers Academy is no exception...fortunately these are traits that ALL Sales Certified Cool Bankers have been shown to possess.
  3. Support: Matt and his team will answer your questions and provide you the support you might be lacking in the lonely journey of growing your career. With over 15 years of combined experience running his own award-winning banks and consulting business, Matt knows where you are and can help get you where you want to go.
  4. Community: Being a part of a collaborative community of like-minded banking professionals can have an amazing impact on your success. Our incredibly engaged, members-only community is a tremendous resource for information, support and problem-solving for your current challenges and daily struggles.



Here's Everything The Cool Bankers Academy Includes...

Full Access to the Cool Bankers Academy

An online video banker sales training to help you acquire your ideal clients, increase your margins, and grow your portfolio easier. The Academy exercises and videos will direct you through the strategies you need in order to grow your career faster, from positioning your personal brand as "The Choice" to creating the right offer that will make sure you aren't just another banker to your prospects and speed up your sales cycle. (Value $1,500)

Weekly Q&A Sessions (Office Hours)

In these virtual workshops we work through the entire course, one topic per week. During Office Hours, Matt dives deep into that week's topic, and shares even more insights and stories.  He also takes the time to discuss and answer questions from our membership. You’ll be amazed at what you can learn by hearing answers to others’ questions, or how your confidence will grow knowing the material is working for them too.  (Value $1,000)

Work directly with me (Matt)

A Cool Banker favorite!  Throughout the year you will have access to private sessions with Matt when you need guidance. You and he will evaluate your processes and determine new opportunities for growth. Regular 1-on-1 clients pay over $500 an hour, but you're going to have direct access to him included with Cool Bankers Academy. (Priceless)

Monthly Hot Seat Sessions

Cool Bankers want to be held accountable for their success. Monthly 'hot seat' sessions feature two selected members who will be put under the spotlight to share what's working, and what isn't, when implementing the course material in their daily routines and get customized solutions from Matt to help them do the work and make it real.  Odds are you'll learn something that can accelerate your trajectory too.  (Value $1,500)   

Live Event With A Friend

Meeting away from your office and dedicating undistracted time to focus on your development could be the thing that moves your personal growth to the next level. You and two guests will get to attend one live, full day sessions with Matt each year where he will cover the strategies you need to get to the next level. (Value $2,500)

Regular Support Between Office Hours

Our amazingly active and supportive Cool Bankers Academy Facebook community provides help and support for your daily dilemmas. You’ll get your issues solved quickly by Matt and our team, as well as feedback from from other like-minded banking professionals who are also part of this members-only group. (Priceless)
