Greg is fascinated by gravity as a metaphor: by dropping objects he learns constantly to FAIL BETTER. What do we learn about success from our failures? The Seattle Times called him “A juggler of objects and concepts.” What do you learn about success from a path where the journey is filled with mistakes and failure? You learn focus and courage. Greg shows you the way. (Perfect for any group looking to enhance positive mental attitude among their team members and looking to laugh throughout a presentation)
Developing community is about strengthening teams from within. For Greg, touring and exploring the world for thirty years has taught him about CREATIVITY, COMMUNITY, and USING COMEDY 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 all organizations who truly value their people and who are interested in energetic new ideas)
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? From a perspective of taking action for others, this keynote is a call to action. Let's look at the roadblocks which prevent those things from happening and then blast through them. 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. (Perfect for any group with a CSR focus, those interested in change and transformation...and also for colleges / universities)
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)
“If I was a speaker and magician like Greg Bennick, AEGIS would be a ten billion dollar company by next year.”
“Greg is a world-class speaker and philosopher. He is inspiring, articulate and a magician when it comes to putting his experiences into words to infuse fire in people’s hearts.”
“Greg, you were very easy to work with. You invested a great deal of time in research, preparation and rehearsal, and you greatly exceeded our expectations. You were the perfect choice to be our keynote speaker. You are by far the most engaging speaker we’ve ever hired.”
“We've worked with many speakers and entertainers, but never before has someone taken the time and energy you did to get to know our niche industry. It was so well-received - I've been fielding texts from members all evening. It was exactly what our audience needed. We can't thank you enough and look forward to working with you again in the future — hopefully next time in person!"
“A juggler and inspirational speaker: it’d be hard for anybody to balance such extremes, but Bennick seems to do it with grace.”
“My client thought I was a genius for finding such an amazing entertainer and passed that praise along to my boss…I then passed that praise along to my parents as a sign that my college education wasn’t a waste. So, from both a professional and personal angle, thank you for an amazingly successful and highly entertaining event.”
