Throughout life, you have been setting goals for your career, college, relationships and finances. When was the last time you did something just for you? Psychologists say that focusing on personal goals helps promote positive mental health by giving you a vehicle for self care while keeping you energized and avoiding burnout. Simply put: you can’t take care of other people if you don’t take care of yourself.

Prioritizing your personal goals isn’t just for your benefit, however, it’s for benefit of your organization. Companies with a people-first culture see measurable improvements in productivity, lower absenteeism, higher customer satisfaction and improved recruitment (Harvard Business Review). By putting yourself first, you put yourself in a position to serve others. Ben facilitates exercises that drive us towards our goals by implementing tiers of accountability and he inspires action through masterful storytelling and tangible take away. See why Global Gurus has named Ben in the World’s Top 30 Organizational Culture Thought Leaders the past two years in row.

About Keynote Speaker Ben Nemtin

Ben Nemtin is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of What Do You Want To Do Before You Die? and the star of the MTV show The Buried Life. As the co-founder of The Buried Life movement, Ben’s message of radical possibility has been featured by major media outlets including The Today Show, The Oprah Winfrey Show, CNN, Inc., ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC News.

In a pit of depression, Ben and his three best friends decided to create the world’s greatest bucket list to make them feel alive. They bought a rickety old bus and criss-crossed North America, achieving the unthinkable. And most importantly, every time they accomplished a dream, they helped a complete stranger cross something off their bucket list. From playing basketball with President Obama to streaking a professional soccer field, from raising over $400,000 for charity to placing a record-breaking $250,000 bet on roulette—Ben’s bucket list quest has inspired millions to chase their dreams and realize that impossible is possible.

Testimonials

“Ben’s virtual keynote had a very real impact! Ben spoke to our remote team about how to build a culture of service and unlock hidden potential. Team members are aligned with new goals at work, in their communities, and for themselves. He unified us around the impact of dreaming big and making a plan. Since Ben’s keynote, a number of our team members have accomplished their goals and are helping each other through acts of service. Ben’s remote keynote had all the impact of a big stage keynote and it’s still having an effect today.”

Darcy Boles

Head of Employee Experience, Taxjar

“Ben’s storytelling and ability to connect with our audience was apparent from the minute he greeted our participants. Listening to his story made everyone in the room feel empowered and motivated to make a difference and be courageous in their own lives. Ben helped us realize that we as individuals and leaders have the ability to make a real impact and empower others to make that same impact not only professionally but in our everyday lives. 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.”

HR Strategic Advisor, FedEx Services

 

“Ben Nemtin is a masterful storyteller and speaker, who has a remarkable way of connecting with audiences and using his life and “bucket list” adventures to help and inspire others! We were honored to have Ben keynote three different events in Memphis, TN, including a reception with hundreds of college students and business professional mentors, a fundraising dinner for the Boy Scouts, and our cityCURRENT Signature Breakfast with more than 400 prominent community leaders. At each event, Ben received a standing ovation! It was absolutely amazing to see THREE standing ovations with three completely different audiences! Even better, Ben is a genuine, good guy. He was a pleasure to work with and extremely professional when it came to his preparation and tweaking his presentations to fit the audiences. You’ll find that watching Ben is like watching a movie where he combines personal stories with media to make you laugh, cry, learn, and then want to act to take control of your life and make a difference in the lives of others. 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, so please feel free to reach out if you would like any more information about my experiences in booking Ben Nemtin.”

“In my 29 years at MHA I have hired hundreds of speakers for every health care discipline in the hospital setting and you, by far, are on the top of my list. You inspire people to not only make their own bucket list, but also to “pay it forward” along the way – what an exceptional message to deliver.”

VP of Education & Member Services, Minnesota Hospital Association

 

“I must say that 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 and something we want to do before we die.”

Senior Athletics Director, Stanford University

 

“I thoroughly enjoyed it, without being too cliché 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 this pressure to embrace the material things in life and sacrifice any in your way to make it to the top. Overall I think it was a great event and a message that we could all embrace and learn from!”

Director of Student Life, Harvard Law School

 

“Ben took the time to understand our company and culture and adapted his presentation for us. He even arrived the day before and attended several of our other conference events and utilized his observations to further customize his remarks for Camden. The feedback from our employees was phenomenal. Many said Ben was the best speaker they had ever seen. Ben is relatable, humorous, inspiring and motivational. He brought energy and a positive message that invoked thought and emotion. We highly recommend Ben.”
