I’ve received dozens of texts and emails from our partners and managers who expressed that Ben's stories, messages and advice resonated at a time when they are feeling the fatigue of a difficult 2020.
Anthony Waelter National Managing Partner, Deloitte
The feedback was overwhelming! I had messages about how moving Ben's presentation was and how meaningful it was to “all” employees that the company cares about them as a “whole” person. It was completely different from anything we’ve done or heard thus far and it beyond exceeded expectations.
Karen Robertson EVP, Fidelity National Financial
Ben's presentation is more than a keynote, it is a culture shifting experience.

Dynamic!…Powerful!…Inspirational! Ben "hit it out of the park” for our virtual Convention, you felt like you were in the room with him!
Donna Bevilacqua Director of Comms & Community Relations, CCUA
I have never experienced a keynote speaker so seamlessly weave in small, but meaningful, tie-ins to our business and industry without feeling forced or unauthentic. Ben's virtual keynote not only captivated the attention of our audience but evoked intense emotional responses that left everyone feeling motivated and inspired.

Having Ben as a guest speaker at Headspace was nothing short of sublime. Not only is his own story an incredible inspiration, he also stands for creating the culture where others can inhabit a life they love.
Brydon Gerus Creative Director
I have run many conferences over the years and one challenge is the “last speaker”. It is extremely hard to finish with a “lift” at the end. Ben was by far the best I have ever seen. Well done!
David McDonald Group Senior Vice President, Member Networks | Vizient
Ben’s storytelling and ability to connect with our audience was apparent from the minute he greeted our participants. The message was perfectly aligned with our theme and I had so many attendees say it was the best event to date. I would highly recommend Ben to anyone wanting to add that “WOW” factor to their event.
Laurie Cummins HR Strategic Advisor
Ben’s work is as personal as it is universal. Beyond living a joyful, bold life, the underlying message he has imparted onto our people is to curate a life of mental wellness, and that self-care and care for others are indivisible. His is a message of heart and humanity.
Juma Wood Leadership Development
Ben's message continues to be a part of our culture here at Lincoln. In short, Ben spoke and our people listened. Our associates left his keynote inspired and took action towards their goals. We reported and promoted individual bucket list achievements and this inspired others to take action. Before long, our associates were helping each other achieve their dreams and this naturally created a “peer encouragement” sub-culture. Ben's presentation is more than a keynote, it is a culture shifting experience.
Garry Spence Senior Vice President
Due to COVID-19, our organization had to pivot to holding our first ever virtual conference with only a few months to prepare – Ben and his team made it easy. They went above and beyond to get to know our audience and goals as well as making sure we were comfortable with the virtual format. Ben’s topics of Resiliency and Living Your Best Life were just what our audience needed. Ben truly inspired everyone!
Jessica Gaudio Senior Director of Membership, The Institutes CPCU Society
Ben's transformational keynote energized our team to move towards more productive, satisfying lives by committing to something greater than ourselves.

Ben's virtual keynote opened doors to new client relationships, engagement was through the roof!
Page Long Director of Strategic Accounts, Equitable
In my 38 year career, I have never hired the same speaker twice, until Ben. He's spoken at critical internal and external events three times. He inspired me to pursue my improbable dream of songwriting in Nashville, which last October came true. I cannot thank Ben enough for his life-changing message.
Gene Rapisardi Market President
I laughed, and I cried. I think it was important for Harvard students especially to experience this because for most of the students here there is pressure to embrace the material things in life and sacrifice any in your way to make it to the top. This is a message that we could all embrace and learn from!
Tracey-Ann Daley Director of Student Life
Ben was a pleasure to work with and extremely professional when it came to his preparation and tweaking his presentations to fit the audiences. If you’re looking for a speaker to truly inspire your audience, I definitely stand behind Ben Nemtin! We’re still receiving rave reviews from his presentations.
Jeremy Park CEO
Ben truly demonstrates what it means to never take 'no' for an answer when it comes to living out your dreams and helping others do the same. It’s more than an inspirational talk – it’s a call to action to live the life you’ve always wanted and help others do the same.
Julie Ball North American Leadership Development Manager
Ben personally brought me to my knees with emotion when he spoke about the journey of life and going for what we all feel is truly important.

Ben’s keynote was exactly the refresher our organization needed during these trying times. Ben’s focus on resiliency left the audience captivated and motivated to take on whatever comes next. We highly recommend him as a virtual keynote speaker!

In my 29 years at MHA, I have hired hundreds of speakers and Ben, by far, is on the top of my list. He inspires people to not only make their own bucket list, but also to “pay it forward” along the way – what an exceptional message to deliver.

Cathy Armold VP Member Services
Ben's talk provided a unique blend of inspiration and humor, and encouraged us to discover how we can inject more meaning, curiosity, and adventure into our lives. Great stories, humble approach, and clear delivery - we now have an entirely new way to view the concept of a bucket list.
