Ben Saunders is a sought-after and globally-acclaimed motivational speaker, and is a one of a small group of repeat main-stage TED speakers (in 2005, 2012 and 2014). His TED talks have been viewed online nearly four million times.
“I have rarely seen this audience so captivated by a keynote speaker before. Your talk was the highlight of our event and you also met my personal objective of, if only fleetingly, reminding some people what “difficult” really means.”
As a motivational speaker, Ben has delivered keynote presentations in nearly 30 countries to many of the world’s largest and most successful corporations. He speaks with honesty, humility and passion about motivation, goal setting, teamwork, success, failure, risk-taking, overcoming adversity, dealing with change, and achieving what we set out to achieve, no matter how steep the odds.
Ben has also spoken to more than 100 schools and colleges (and 20,000+ schoolchildren) since 2001, and at a number of prestigious international conferences, including TED, PopTech! and Imagine Solutions in the United States, IdeaCity in Canada and Forum One in Lithuania and the Ukraine.
Ben gives a number of pro bono talks each year for UK state schools, and these are managed exclusively by the charity Speakers for Schools.
