Engaging and dynamic... you’d never know he is a math and computer guy!
Bill Benjamin has a rare perspective – he has advanced degrees in Mathematics and Computer Science and has 25 years of real-world business experience as a senior leader. Bill is very authentic about the fact that he struggled early in his career as a leader when he was under pressure. He shares how he has been able to apply the very same techniques he teaches to become a better leader (and husband and father) himself.
In addition to using his background in sales to motivate and inspire audiences, Bill leverages his Mathematics and technical background to take a practical and scientific approach to helping people understand how the brain responds under pressure, and how that can help increase leadership and performance.
Bill is a partner at the Institute for Health and Human Potential (IHHP), a successful international research and training company, named one of the “Fastest Growing Companies” in the “Fast 100” ranking in PROFIT Magazine.
Bill also contributed to the New York Times and Amazon bestselling book Performing Under Pressure, co-authored by IHHP’s JP Pawliw-Fry and noted psychologist Hendrie Weisinger.

Performing Under Pressure: The Three Conversations of Leadership
People want to build strong relationships with their managers, teams, and peers: they want to bring their ideas and concerns to the table regardless of who is in the room. To achieve this, difficult conversations need to take place. Unfortunately, under the pressure to drive results, people often forget the importance of building trust; they avoid the conversation entirely or they ignore the Last 8% of the Conversation™.
What is the Last 8% of the Conversation? At the end, when the pressure increases, many people avoid (sometimes unknowingly) the last and most important part of the conversation – the part that really needs to be said.
This program will arm you with insights and communication strategies to have conversations that drive results and get to that last 8%, even in pressure filled moments.
Women Under Pressure
Women have a brain based difference that predisposes them to consider more options, see more context and visualize a wider array of solutions and outcomes to a problem.
Our research included over 6,000 women to better understand the unique value and contribution that women have. We discovered that organizations that leverage this brain based difference have stronger relationships with customers and shareholders, have a more diverse and profitable business, and they outperform the competition in every measure of profitability: equity, revenue, and assets.
This keynote will appeal to audiences who are looking for speakers who can address diversity and inclusion, women in leadership, entrepreneurs, and how to perform better under pressure.
