The show must go on: one for the record books

Read this next part out loud in your best movie blockbuster announcer voice: "In a world gone mad...one speaker...determined to survive at any cost...makes his way through ice and snow and first class airfare...with no sleep, no food, no sanity...driven only by his sheer and unbreakable will...to get to a keynote on time." Screen Shot 2015-03-15 at 1.13.50 PM

Never has spending thousands of dollars felt so worthwhile, even though in the midst of it, I wanted to fall into a hole and die. Happy audience + happy client = happy Greg.

A championship winning humorous speech

posted on Nov 17, 2014

Two nights ago I won the Toastmasters International, Humorous Speech Contest for District 2 with this 7 minute speech, "The Road to Love is Paved With Good Intentions". Toastmasters International contest speeches are between 5 and 7 minutes long and are judged on speech development, content, effectiveness, audience response, delivery, and vocal performance. This one was a comedic account of my legacy as the last in a line of failed romantics. It was fun to write a special speech for the contest and I am glad it went as well as it did!  https://vimeo.com/112031144

New interview: Greg on Life Mastery Radio

posted on Aug 04, 2014

I didn’t know what to think when Life Mastery Radio said they wanted to do an interview. Was I worthy of being called a “life master”? Would I fit their demographic: an interview that started out with centering and deep meditation breathing might not be in line with me? But as is true of most preconceived notions, they often fall quickly once reality sets in…and I never expected that in the span of an hour we would cover heavy metal drummers, fear of death and how it affects our lives, nonhierarchical organizing, spoken word touring, One Hundred For Haiti and perspectives on international aid work, punk rock, the innate human drive towards creativity, why people might really consider quitting their day jobs, and how media and authority have inspired us to become mentally lazy and disempowered. This was a great hour and I am thankful I got to be a part of it. • LISTEN HERE on the show’s home page. • iTunes is HERE.

Speaker…ACTOR? Lessons from a film set in NYC

posted on Jul 29, 2014

[caption id="attachment_257" align="alignright" width="500" caption="Greg Bennick with Edoardo Ballerini and Gabriel Judet-Weinshel"]Movie star for a day...[/caption] In 1995, I was just out of acting school - having attended in order to learn vocal technique to augment my stage presence as a speaker. Speaking and acting have some interesting similarities in terms of how a conversation is established between performer and audience, most often in live theatre. At the time I was in school, I was unlike my classmates in that I had little desire to be an actor, and no ambition whatsoever to do auditions, etc. I just wanted to be a better communicator. So as not to get swept up into the world of acting, I made an agreement with myself that any fame or fortune that would befall me in the acting world would come TO me, not happen as a result of me going to It. Right in line with that, just after graduation, I was approached by a local 17-year-old director named Gabriel Judet-Weinshel. Gabriel had written a film called "The Last Supper" about a man who learns that he is living his last day. The Person, as this man is called (a sort of Everyperson character) has to reconcile his entire life between sunrise and sundown. Quite a concept for a teenager to develop as much as Gabriel had. I played The Person, and we shot over five days in Seattle. Very few people saw the film, as it wasn't widely released, but what was significant about it was that Gabe and I worked together brilliantly. He looked at me on the last shoot day and said, "I am going to make movies for the rest of my life. When I cast my first feature, I am going to cast you in it." Fast forward to 2011. Its a decade and a half later. I get a phone call. It was Gabriel, now age 30-something. He was in New York, having done exactly what he said he would have done: he had spent his life making movies. He was indeed casting his first feature and he asked me to co-star. My IMDB profile needs a little love, so that was just another reason to say yes to this project. I play, surprise surprise, an eccentric, out-of-work juggler....go figure...who helps a detective figure out a murder mystery and the reasons behind a bizarre set of circumstances in which he sees duplicates - twins - of himself around a city, not all of them benevolent. We shot the film over twenty-one days in New York, and just this past week after a few years had gone by, we reshot one of the scenes which was to have required a number of special effects to make it look the way Gabriel wanted. The film will be finished later this fall, and if the gods of film have their way, it will be on the festival circuit next year. It was fascinating to be in front again of the camera and experience communication in a different way than I am used to with my keynotes and my spoken word appearances. You don't get the non-verbal cues that you get from conversation or from an audience. You also don't get the verbal cues either. You don't get anything actually: its all generative in your imagination and in how accurately you play the moment. There are good lessons here for when we don't get back what we hope for from the person to whom we are speaking. What happens in the moment? Do we let that crush us? Sure, we are all insecure fragile creatures but we can also - in moments of need - retreat to our imagination and put another of our abilities to the best possible use: our ability to imagine and envision. If we envision a reality other than the one we are currently in (this is a uniquely human attribute...no other species in the animal kingdom does this) then we can live as if. As if we are getting the response we want. As if our point is well taken. As if the recipient is on board with us. Often in moments in front of audiences, especially for new speakers, being AS IF is a great method for getting through tight moments. Instead of reacting to the response we received, we can react to the response in a moment that we WANTED to have received. Is it out of integrity to do this? It doesn't matter: it is performance. And performance as reality creation is an inherent part of any communication. We use our words and tone in specific ways to bring out responses. This is performance too. If it gets you by to the next scene, I vote to use whatever takes, go for it, and make it happen. Use whatever technique works to make the overall speech or presentation a success. When acting, I am thinking about the fullness of the reality of the situation, even if the camera doesn't respond in the way I want it to. I can make the result seem like it did.

Buy Ambien Without Prescription

posted on Dec 20, 2012

Buy Ambien Without Prescription, Sometimes, the reasons why I do what I do are perfectly clear. Gaining clarity in moments isn't always easy, but helps when you have a friend who is a professional photographer to catch the moment on film, Ambien brand name.

In the last twenty years, Ambien coupon, I have appeared on stages in more countries than I could easily count, in front of literally hundreds of thousands of people in the widest variety of circumstances. I always try to have have every moment under control, my Ambien experience. It comes from a lifetime of experience as a professional communicator. Everything gets thought through, considered, prepared for, and that work and readiness is what leads to solid events, Buy Ambien Without Prescription. Ambien description, But at the core of it all, what matters most to me is creating real connection and real communication. If those elements aren't there in a presentation then all I am doing, real brand Ambien online, regardless of the intensity and specificity of the preparation for a particular event, Ambien pics, is just going through the motions. And life is too short to waste anyone's time like that, especially that of my generous audiences, is Ambien safe.
[caption id="attachment_220" align="alignright" width="150" caption="December 2012"]Sean's family with Greg Bennick[/caption]
This brings me to my favorite presentation of the year. Buy Ambien Without Prescription, This has been a year that saw me onstage in front of three thousand people in Singapore talking about international connectedness, and then later in a huge theater packed full of real estate experts in Wisconsin talking about putting people before profits, and then in a club filled with hundreds of intensely connected listeners in St. Ambien canada, mexico, india, Petersburg Russia, and on and on. The world is a criss-crossed dotted map of my travels, Ambien steet value. But one event last week stood out amongst them all. Order Ambien from United States pharmacy, My friend Sean's mom hasn't been feeling well recently. The specifics of her illness are her personal business, but suffice to say, a hospital stay that was supposed to be short was extended recently and I drove up to Canada to visit her in the hospital, Buy Ambien Without Prescription. She was hopeful that she'd be getting out in a few days and I told her that I would come back up and juggle for her and for her granddaughter when she finally was allowed to go home. It was just a simple gesture really, buying Ambien online over the counter, but it was what I had to offer. Ambien samples, Now, I don't think there is anyone who while in the hospital thinks to themselves with any sense of urgency, "This hospital experience is terrible...what I REALLY need right now is a keynote speaking juggler." My offer served a dual purpose: first of all, buy Ambien without prescription, I thought it might be fun (this is the prime motivator for almost all of my actions in life). Buy Ambien from canada, I thought it might be especially fun for the little granddaughter. Buy Ambien Without Prescription, Secondly, it could give Sean's mom something to look forward to. We all recognize that when we have meaning in our lives that the meaningful thing, whatever it might be (an unfulfilled dream, purchase Ambien for sale, a relationship, Where can i find Ambien online, a hope, a goal) can be fuel for us through our darkest days.

Fast forward a week, Ambien results. She got out of the hospital, Ambien for sale, and I drove the three hours north back up to Canada to visit her at home. With me I had five juggling beanbags. Nothing more, Buy Ambien Without Prescription. No microphone, Ambien from canadian pharmacy. No stage. Ambien forum, None of the things I bring to my commercial speaking engagements. No expensive designer suit and tie. Buy Ambien Without Prescription, No comedy lines custom written for the event. Just five juggling beanbags, fast shipping Ambien, casual clothes, Ambien photos, and of course a passport (they tend to not let you into the country without one when coming home).

Whereas all other times the lights are on, the stage is set, Ambien over the counter, and every detail has been looked after and prepared to perfection, Ambien recreational, this was a night and a performance of a very different kind. The audience - Sean's mom and granddaughter and three more family members out of frame - were sitting on chairs and a couch or on the floor in a living room exactly like yours. I too sat on the floor, online buying Ambien.

When everyone was ready, rather than launch into a professional presentation of some kind, all I did was launch those beanbags aloft, Buy Ambien Without Prescription. Five of them started in motion in what is called a cascade, Ambien no prescription, the most basic of juggling patterns.

The little girl's eyes went wide. She instantly lost her mind in the best way, herbal Ambien, laughing all the while. Ambien dose, It was as if she couldn't believe what she was seeing. Buy Ambien Without Prescription, "Has she ever seen juggling before," I wondered. If she had, she wasn't letting on by way of her three-year-old semi intelligible descriptions to everyone of what she was looking at, purchase Ambien online no prescription, or by way of her laughter. Cheap Ambien, And her grandmother, Sean's mom, had a priceless smile too, Ambien online cod. But her smile was from a few different sources: not only for her granddaughter's joy, Buy Ambien online cod, but also for herself for finally being out of the hospital and at home with her family, and in appreciation for all of us taking the time to share and connect. (Ok, where can i buy cheapest Ambien online, maybe a bit in wonder too at what she was seeing before her...)

They were happy. So happy, Buy Ambien Without Prescription. Buy no prescription Ambien online, And the juggling and interaction and playing with them with those beanbags, whether by way of me juggling or by them trying themselves, went on for over an hour, Ambien pharmacy.

Typical audiences need something new every few seconds or so. They are trained by culture and communication norms to need constant stimuli, channel to channel, website to website, topic to topic, what's in it for me or I am moving on. And I feel that too when I am onstage. Buy Ambien Without Prescription, My pacing reflects that. Laugh, idea, repeat. Give them something new to think about, to hear, to see. But this night we all got back to basics. It was about sharing in the simplest of ways and enjoying it deeply.

In his classic theater book "The Empty Space", author Peter Brook opened with the line "I can take any empty space and call it a bare stage", Buy Ambien Without Prescription. He meant that all one needs for theatre to happen is beyond the professional details. You need only a living room. A few willing people to watch. Someone with something to offer from the heart. Buy Ambien Without Prescription, And all of them with love to offer back. This moment, one that my friend captured so well, was simple. It was about connection and sharing. It was one of those moments which you reflect on after the face and realize with a smile, "Wow...that was something real."

Sean reflected on this moment later with me saying, "I'm trying to capture as many moments in my mom's life as possible. Its great to see her smile. Its few and far between."

After far more than half a lifetime communicating and sharing, I can say without a doubt that moments like that are what drive me - when there is a real need to connect, and then when sincerity and communication and willingness and wonder suddenly blend in a moment. To have a chance to help create moments like this is really why I do what I do.

Ambien For Sale

posted on Aug 09, 2012

Ambien For Sale, When I am not on the road doing keynote presentations at events for commercial clients, I tour speaking to various audiences about ideas, passion, world-transformation, and a host of other things. Get Ambien, One of the best parts about my life is connecting with people and being in places that are as vast, distant, order Ambien online overnight delivery no prescription, Buy Ambien from canada, and varied as anyone can dream of.

Low dose Ambien, On my last tour, I was speaking in Salt Lake City UT, kjøpe Ambien på nett, köpa Ambien online, Ordering Ambien online, and my friend Travis mentioned a VERY rural town he'd recently visited in southwestern Utah called Frisco.

Ambien gel, ointment, cream, pill, spray, continuous-release, extended-release, So when he mentioned Frisco, I knew I was in for a good story, herbal Ambien. Ambien mg, And I was right about that.

It turns out that Frisco, Ambien no prescription, Ambien price, during the late 1800's, was the largest silver mining town in the world, Ambien use, Rx free Ambien, and was thriving as a result. Frisco was the epitome of a rough-and-tumble western town, Ambien dose, Real brand Ambien online, filled with drunken saloons, shootouts, no prescription Ambien online, Buy Ambien online cod, bar fights, sheriffs and other nefarious characters, Ambien from canadian pharmacy, Buy cheap Ambien, and lots of treasure. It was like a Hollywood western film, Ambien overnight, Comprar en línea Ambien, comprar Ambien baratos, but in real life. Ambien For Sale, After a sudden and tragic mine collapse which killed many of the town's workers, the mining there slowed to a halt and everyone moved out of the town leaving it finally empty after the 1920's.

Buy Ambien from mexico, Having heard of Frisco, he went there with his film partner and they looked amidst the desert for evidence of the remainder of the town, Ambien wiki, Online Ambien without a prescription, and they found it, in a number of forms: from ruins of old mining gear and broken buildings, australia, uk, us, usa, Ambien long term, to the fallen mine itself, and also to a local man who had grown up near Frisco who had tapes - old and worn reel-to-reel recordings - of transfers of interviews with original inhabitants of the town, Ambien alternatives.

I told him that I would book a night on my next tour, buy generic Ambien, Purchase Ambien, the tour which is now coming up in a week, for a spoken word event in Frisco. I told him that he and I should go out there together, sit near the mine - and that if anyone else wanted to come out, fine - but that at the very least that it would be the two of us by the light of a campfire, and I would do a spoken set for him as my audience...and that it would literally be the first live event to take place in Frisco Utah since the total death of the town nearly one hundred years ago. Travis being Travis and loving the weird side of life, agreed immediately.

And so...its booked: August 21st 2012, at 9PM: Greg Bennick spoken word at The Horn Silver Mine, Frisco UT. Just Travis, me, a campfire, anyone who ventures to join us...along with the words, whatever creatures of the night happen to drop by, and the ghosts of a town long dead.

See you there.
