Short Description:

Greg Bennick delivers a unique and powerful group experience. He is in a category of his own; Punk rock volalist turned keynote speaker, machete Juggler and social change documentary producer.


Focus. How do we regain it, and why do we lose it?  And what effect does it have on our present and our future?

If you want to build a better future, build a better now®. Greg shares insights about managing constant distractions in a world which pulls us in every possible direction.

This keynote presentation is about rediscovering our focus and recognizing its relationship to self esteem. When we find focus, it allows us to be able to work even better as a team.

Some key takeaways from the Build a Better Now® keynote:

• Examining key directives: each a plan for how to better live in the moment
• Recognizing the reasons why we lose our focus
• Reconnecting to our purpose and reason for doing the work we do
• Appreciating the team we’re a part of and celebrating a feeling of shared vision
• Understanding the connection between focus and our individual and team self-esteem…and then enhancing that

When we FOCUS, opportunities are everywhere.

It is in the way we interact, how we think of ourselves, how we manage change and how we collaborate. We can’t predict the future, but we can definitely set ourselves on powerful, focused tracks to be ready for what’s to come.

We have just begun to emerge from one of the most challenging eras in human history. How will we move forward, and what will our future hold? This keynote helps us define that by helping us refine what we do and why.

“A fantastic presentation…the agents loved all your takeaways!”

Greg shares new angles on team building, managing conflict, leadership, and effective communication through looking at how we start building the future we want, today. It all starts with focus. Based in Seattle, he’s been flown everywhere from Syracuse to Singapore to share his unique brand of engaging ideas, and potent spoken word.

FAIL BETTER: Don’t Be Afraid to Drop the Ball

Greg is a juggler who is fascinated by gravity as a metaphor: by dropping objects he learns constantly to manage failure. What do we learn about success from seemingly constant failures? The Seattle Times called him “A juggler of objects and concepts” and went on to say, “A juggler and inspirational speaker: it’d be hard for anybody to balance such extremes, but Bennick seems to do it with grace.”

What do you learn about success from a path where the journey is filled with mistakes? For a juggler, there is no escaping gravity. Along the way Greg has learned about focus and creative courage, facing picking objects up and continuing on even when the path doesn’t seem clear. “Fail better,” a phrase often taken from Samuel Beckett’s writings about failing again and again and again, is a great image to use when connected with juggling.

(Perfect for any group looking to enhance positive mental attitude among their team members)

ENVISION AND EXPAND: Changing the World Without Having a Clue

Want to change the world in which you work and live but aren’t sure how? Want to transform your workplace environment and implement new ideas? Learn how one line from the movie “Raiders of the Lost Ark” inspired a lifetime of creativity and action even amidst self-doubt. Learn about failing better, growing together, and making dreams a reality. Let’s look at the roadblocks which prevent those things from happening and then blast through them.

(Perfect for any group with a CSR focus, those interested in change and transformation…and also for colleges / universities)

FIND YOUR VOICE: Strengthen Your Community with Creativity

Developing community is about strengthening teams from within. For Greg, touring and exploring the world in a band and as a speaker for decades has taught him about creativity, community, and using comedic stories to channel energy in positive directions. Your work, personal, and local communities need every voice to thrive. Learn the benefits, and discover powerful new perspectives on teamwork through comedic approaches on self esteem and connectedness.

(Perfect for organizations who place high value their people and want them connecting with energetic new ideas around motivation)

YOU MATTER: Perspectives on Work and Life

Greg explores human motivations. We want to be contributors to significant lives, expressing ourselves in ways that are meaningful. How can we do that, inspire others to do the same, and stay inspired without losing ourselves in fear and self-doubt? Or without conflict arising? We need to cultivate a sense that our work and our lives are meaningful, while not taking that knowledge and using it to infringe on what others find meaningful too. This is the presentation we need in an increasingly chaotic and unpredictable world.

(Perfect for teamwork, communication, and personal development events)
