New Leadership: Why You Matter

Companies with a people-first culture see measurable improvements in productivity, lower absenteeism, higher customer satisfaction and improved recruitment (Harvard Business Review). This is the new leadership. When you put yourself first you’re putting yourself in a position to serve others, it’s not selfish; it’s service. When you’re pursuing the things that are truly important to you, you’re more alive in every way and you bring that energy to everything you do.

An organization can only become the-best-version-of-itself to the extent that its employees are becoming better-versions-of-themselves. Proving that you care enough to ask your people what matters most to them goes a long way, and it’s easier than you think to help them get there. Ben brings home the importance of pursuing a bucket list, not only for your own wellbeing, but also for your career and for those around you. Ben facilitates goal sharing and inspires people into action through masterful storytelling and by implementing tiers of accountability to drive them towards their goals.

Mental Wealth

Ben authored a #1 New York Times Bestselling book, starred in an MTV show, met President Obama at the White House, was interviewed by Oprah, had beers with Prince Harry and has been living his dreams for the past decade.

He also struggles with depression. This may come as a surprise, and that’s exactly why Ben wants to talk about it. In university, Ben was hit with a crippling depression that forced him to drop out of school and retreat into his parents house. In an effort to climb out of his darkness, Ben decided to surround himself with friends who inspired him and committed to finally following his buried dreams. These commitments led him to Jonnie, Dave and Duncan and The Buried Life was born.

Ben is a mental health advocate who believes that all humans have ups and they have downs. He believes the stigma around mental illness can be broken through open, honest conversations. However, the onus is not on the 1 in 5 who struggle with mental health to break the stigma, the responsibility falls on all of us. By showing how his vulnerabilities have become his strengths, Ben gives others the courage to talk about their internal battles. Ben shares the tools that help him cope with the stresses of life and emphasizes that it is ok to reach out for help. His astounding story and authentic levity gives audiences hope and normalizes behavioral health in a vibrant way.



If you want a lesson in boldness, and to cross things off of your bucket list, there is no better teacher than Ben Nemtin.

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.
