Pop Icon & Economist
Ben Stein has had what may be the most diverse career of anyone now on the national scene. He is in every sense a Renaissance Man. He has been an award-winning actor, economist, writer, journalist, and teacher, and is as equally well known in America’s boardrooms as in America’s dormitories and fraternity houses. He is certainly the only man to be a famous, humorous teacher about economics and law. Read More >
"What a wonderful presentation! His performance was exactly on par with our expectations... he was funny, poignant, sincere and thought provoking. I've received many, many nice comments about his remarks. Our audience loved him... and of course, that's what's important.
But from a planner’s perspective, I need to tell you that I was particularly impressed with his attentiveness to the program that preceded his part, and that he very thoughtfully and graciously remarked about our sponsors, our award winners, and our program in general. In addition, he took the time to circle back to some of the earlier content that was presented.
I think this is rare in a paid speaker ... He didn't just go up to “do his thing,” but rather he integrated earlier content into his presentation in a way that showcased many people and organizations sitting around the room. I know it meant a lot to our sponsors to hear him comment on them that way. He also clearly customized his presentation -- in part -- to work for our audience. I appreciated that he put that forethought into it. All in all, it was quite a hit."
"The event was a huge success and we have been getting 'RAVE' reviews!!! Ben did an amazing job!!! He really tailored his presentation to our audience and received a standing ovation. He did a great job!"
