Interactive ideas that inspire

Greg Bennick offers creative strategies for world changers.  He has spent over thirty years inspiring audiences around the planet to laugh and think in innovative new ways. 

"I told my team after your keynote: ‘If we only had half of Greg’s energy, we would be amazing!’"

- Marco van Velthoven, LeasePlan

(The Netherlands)

Greg explores the relationship between focus and how that builds confidence for individuals and teams. Leaders are only able to drive organizations into the future by gaining the perspective to build a better now.

Greg’s keynotes are interactive and engaging. He offers new exciting ideas in creative ways, and he has fun with audiences while doing it.


Focus. How do we regain it, and why do we lose it?  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 individual performance and organizational success. When we reclaim the moment and regain our focus, it heightens efficiency, strengthens teams, and maximizes our output.

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 confidence…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.

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.
