At Allstate, we’re building a different kind of company – a company that people want to do business with because it connects with consumers, sparks social change, empowers people and is a force for good. This requires leaders who can use their talent and capabilities to create a better future for all those who depend on Allstate. That’s why listening to speakers like you who can share your experience through adversity is especially important.
Thank you for spending time with Allstate’s leadership team earlier this month. Your message of total team work – synergy, commitment, empathy and mutual respect – is powerful. Allstate leaders might not be climbing mountains or bicycling through a rain forest but we are competing every day to take care of our customers and strengthen communities so that we deliver the Good Hands promise far into the future. Your stories remind us that no matter what challenge we face, we can overcome it by working together.
I look forward to connecting again in the future.
Thanks Robyn! You were a “rock star”! I really appreciate you being at our meeting. Your powerful presentation and message aligned perfectly with what I wanted to accomplish and you knocked it out of the ball park! I can’t tell you how many people have come up to me and sent me notes on how great they thought your presentation was. I want to sincerely thank you for traveling here and being such a big part of our meeting.
“Your presentation style and message really energized the attendees. We heard nothing but great comments and feedback from many of the attendees throughout the week.”
“Words really can’t describe how amazing your presentation was today. Your commitment towards TEAMWORK is truly inspirational.
The positive feedback was overwhelming. Not only did so many people come up to me after you spoke, but I also received a ton of e-mails thanking me for having you speak.
You truly inspired so many people today. We have had many professional athletes speak over the years, but none of them were as down to earth and approachable as you today.”
“Our morale has improved 100%. The meeting surveys were all positive and gave you lots of luv for your role in our conference.”
“The event was an overwhelming success. We are still talking about the key learnings, the fun, and the excitement of working together as a team.”
“Robyn, you presented recently at an ExxonMobil GREF conference in the Woodlands Conference centre.
I was very impressed by your story, your enthusiasm and the way you had channeled your experiences into such an effective team building message. When I got home I bought your book and finished reading it last night. It had two immediate impacts on me; it made the talk that you gave come flooding back into my consciousness (which was great); but it also give me inspiration on how to run a workshop I have with my team coming up soon. They are going through a tough time (not like your tough times, but in the context of our work they have too much to do, with too little time, and they are not sure how to start).
Anyway, I just wanted to say thanks. Thanks for the pleasure of listening to you, thanks for finding out that I am a “We” thinker (I didn’t know that), and thanks for how I know the workshop is going to go.”
“Hi Robyn, I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for sharing your story with us. I left the hotel on Wednesday feeling more than just motivated, I felt touched. I wanted you to know how warm and open you came across, not only as an inspiration but as a person. I walked away honestly saying to myself, ‘Robyn seems like she would make a really great friend’. Your story is so incredible but you present it in a totally credible way. I’ve learned a lot of things listening to people speak, but I heard things from you I’d never heard before. Thank you for touching my life. I will carry my new lessons with me for a lifetime and, because of that (and you) I will be that better person, friend, and teammate. Many blessings.”
“Having followed your career a bit over the years, I had a pretty good sense for how awesome you would be, but it would appear that I underestimated that piece. I say that because we have done these meetings for many years, and while I think they all have been very good, no question that the feedback on you was exceptional! We had our debrief this morning, and we gave you an A+!”
“The best blend of storytelling and practical application to our world that I have seen in any of the keynotes at the CIO academy.”
“One of the best speakers I have seen in a while. Loved her energy and her message.”
“She was outstanding!”
“Highly motivational speaker, exhibited a personal connection with the audience through an understanding of challenges of state employment and service – a real PLUS!”
“Excellent speaker. In my opinion, one of the best motivational speakers the Academy has had over the years I have attended.”
“Loved the message and the high energy to kick-off the Academy. The analogy worked from both an emotional and intellectual level.”
“One of the best keynote speakers I have heard at a government conference!”
“Robyn, I was in the IBM audience on Wednesday this week and I wanted to thank you for such an inspirational presentation… Lots of unique, amazing accomplishments and communicated to us in such enjoyable and motivational way. I’ve always been known as a team player, however your comments made me realize that there are levels of team that I still need to be part of. For that, I thank you. I now have a new dream / goal / contribution to reach for. … Thanks for the impact that you had on me and my colleagues. Woo Hoo! All the best to you …you must feel great about the positive IMPACT you have had on so many people !!!”
“We had so much fun with you. I literally received so many compliments on your message and comments about how your talk touched people—some wanted to go home and share with their husbands/wives/families. Several others said you were the best speaker they had ever heard (my opinion too by the way) and that more in Nestle should hear you! You SO over-delivered both in your speech and in your willingness to spend time with our team. I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect message to be delivered at just the right time.”
“I cannot thank you enough for your dedication and phenomenal delivery at the Teambuilding/Bikebuilding event at our National Managers Meeting. I received SO many wonderful, positive comments about Robyn’s presentation. The audience felt you were very authentic, passionate and that you really understood ‘Jamba’. I/we were thrilled. I suspect there will be many upcoming occasions for us to work together. I look forward to it!”
Robyn, I had the pleasure of hearing you speak today at Microsoft and I have to tell you how you left me inspired and with a renewed faith in a different way to think about teamwork. I have always valued working in a team but you gave me some great insights into new ways of thinking and while I cannot say I have ever been an Adventure Racer – in fact, I couldn’t be further from it….today I left feeling as though I AM and adventure racer each and every day in my role.
I really enjoyed hearing all that you shared with us. I would really like to stay engaged with you and the work you are doing. What an inspiration you are and truly Thank you for bringing your fire and spirit to our conference today.
“Thank you again for making Amy and I look like geniuses, your presentation was a hit!!! The feedback was tremendous, the best part of the meeting.“
“In short, your presentation was amazing. You rock! You move the audience emotionally. Your content is powerful, and your energy and ability to be genuine on stage were fabulous. I hope they were all taking notes.”
I cannot tell you how happy I was that first — we had an FEMALE speaker! (FINALLY!) And, that it was YOU! I had researched you before the conference & you were just as great as I thought!
On behalf of Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, I would like to thank you for your exceptional keynote speech and unforgettable Eco Challenge that you and your team, World Class Teams, presented to our North American Worldwide Sales Team at our annual meeting last month in Lana’I, Hawaii.
World Class Teams successfully created and executed an experience that was beyond compare. The Eco Challenge created a number of experiences that our sales team could relate to and successfully accomplish.
Thank you for making this day a memorable one. Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts truly appreciated the opportunity to work closely with World Class Teams.
You have inspired us all.

Thank you very much for joining us at the recent IAMC conference. Your session hit on all marks – energy, entertainment and information!
This is what the attendees had to say:
“Great speaker to kick things off and set the tone for the rest of the conference!”
“Great learning experience!”
The IAMC audience tends to go to a lot of events each year, and they hear a lot of speakers. So, they can be a tough crowd to please. You and your presentation were unequivocal hits.
Thank you for helping make IAMC’s Fall 2016 Professional Forum a success!
“All I can say about your presentation is….WOW!! I’ve been in organizational development/sales management for 20 years and have seen hundreds of speakers. You TRULY are the best of the best! Of course, given your amazing background I can understand that anything you do is done with EXCELLENCE!”
Robyn Benincasa gave one of the most inspirational and meaningful teamwork speeches I’ve heard in a long time. As my coworker said, “she’s saying so much more than we’re hearing.”
I just wanted to drop you a short note to say thanks for helping to make our convention a success. You are the definition of high energy and delivered a great message to our franchises about teamwork and leadership!
Best wishes in all of you endeavors. Perhaps I’ll join you in a Project Athena event down the road!
Thank you for a great discussion last week about your experiences and the power of teamwork. Your presentation resonated with our HDR attendees and our team was still talking about how they were personally inspired and the lessons learned as they departed Omaha on Tuesday. Thank you.
I wanted to send you a quick note to let you know what a great response I received from your presentation at our Denver Conference. Your speech was so uplifting and exactly what we needed for our owners and operators.
Thanks again for a wonderful time!
All the best,
Great Opening speaker!
Amazing stories of teamwork and perseverance. I envy her guts!
Extremely inspirational and hilarious! Loved her energy and links back to the training and development profession.
Awesome !!! Very inspirational
Insured and blessed to be reminded life is a gift. ..use it to your best abilities and share them
What a great way to inspire each of us at the start of BTC! Robyn is amazing!
Great start to get people engaged and ready to learn. Encouraged to focus on the comeback, not the set backs.
Phenomenal !!! If I can take what Robyn spoke about and translate the team mentality to our bank, we will be able to do amazing, inspiring things!
Very inspiring and motivating ??
Loved the videos and energy!
She was fantastic!
What an inspirational session! I want to read her book!
Very inspiring. Great way to kick off the conference!
Great inspiration and energy!
I really enjoyed Robyn’s opening keynote. She was very energetic and passionate about helping others.
Robyn Benincasa was great!
Robyn was a great speaker who knew how to engage her audience. The use of visual media to help illustrate her points worked really well. I enjoyed her presentation.
“Thanks so much! We have been getting great reviews of your keynote. You nailed it! Thanks again!!!”
Robyn was AMAZING and is clearly second to none in my book. The team loved her and found her message to be of great value. Earlier tonight KT (DaVita’s Chairman and CEO) came up to spend some time with the team at the reception before our Night of Honor. By the time he arrived at the hotel, he had already her some feedback regarding Robyn (all positive) and had several Teammates including several of our senior leaders mention Robyn to him in questions they asked around team and leadership.
It was also highly noted and appreciated that Robyn had done her homework on our department and DaVita.
What a remarkable woman. Her foundation sounds fantastic and I personally will be a lifetime supporter of her efforts. I also know several teammates approached me over the course of the day asking for her flyer on the foundation and indicated they all want to support Robyn’s work.
I want to thank you for a job well done at our Finance Town Hall in December.
Your message about teamwork and what it takes to be a high performing team aligned perfectly to where I want to take the Finance organization in 2018. There was a lot of positive energy in the room and I’m looking forward to harnessing that momentum as we move into the new year. Feedback about the event has been great.
Many people approached me at our annual holiday party that followed the town hall meeting to tell me how much they enjoyed your presentation and the impact you’ve made on them. This is truly a testament to your work and spirit.
Wishing you continued success for the new year and I hope our paths cross again someday.
All my best,
Umm, dude… You just spoke at my Norwex Leadership Conference… Now, I’m not going to question how a room full of cloth-salespeople ended up with a speaker with 2% body-fat and bat-poop-shoe-loss stories, but I ain’t complaining!!!!!! You absolutely blew my mind!!!!!! My team may not have to carry anyone over a mountain, but we’ll certainly be reaping the benefits of human synergy!!! THANK YOU for spending the time with us last week!
P.S. I loved that you that you ended with a toast and apologized for drinking “poison” (Coke)… Gurrrrrrl, if your muscles are big enough to push the veins out of your arms, you’re allowed to drink whatever the heck you want!!!
P.P.S… My team member and I 28 touches EACH… but who’s counting 😉
Not enough words to express how dynamic, inspirational & incredible our speaker Robyn Benincasa was for us today at Hilton’s 2018 All Suites Conference.
Your messages resonated with me in a way than previous presenters have not been able to do.
Thanks so much for inspiring thoughts! In extreme situations, as you’ve been several times, what I do is so critical to achieving a goal. You showed us how your sport is like life. I get it!!! You have to think out of the box! What I did not hear was, “what made you get into those sports in the first place?”
Thanks again for your message. You’re a ROCKSTAR!
“My team had a FANTASTIC time with Robyn and her team. I cannot ‘glow’ about the event enough! Everyone from World Class Teams was wonderful—they really worked with my executives and helped pull them out of their shells and make them work as teams. The events they had us doing were a lot of fun, challenging as well as meaningful for our team to get the most from the event (not to mention hilarious to watch!). The end of the day/wrap up session where we re-grouped on the day’s activities and how everyone did also served as a learning lesson.
All in all, it was a great experience and we really enjoyed doing it and learning from it. It really did help bring my team together—from my executives that work Internationally and in US Satellite offices, to the people that work together on a daily basis in our LA office. Everyone got a keen sense of ‘teamwork’ and the challenges really made them bond. Not a bad word was said about the day (other than ‘I’m going to be sore tomorrow!’).”
Your leadership presentation at AT&T last year was the most inspirational talk I’ve ever heard.
Thanks so much Robyn. Folks are still buzzing on your talk! Many comments about your customization to link in Boston Scientific.
My best to you and Jeff…it was a pleasure working and meeting you both. Until we meet again😀!!!
Looking for a keynote speaker to inspire greatness in your team? Here she is! Robyn spoke at our meeting last week and helped us see how to bring out the power in each of us!
I have to say we are still basking in the greatness of the event and your presentation! Survey results are coming back with comments like this: ‘best BWL presentation I’ve attended!” Many many many thanks to you.
I am a Program Medical Director for The Intensivist Group. I listened to you speak at the Sound Physicians “National Leadership Conference”. I just wanted to let you know how impressed I was with not only your ability to motivate, your storied past, or your ideas on living well and collaboratively but with the way in which you were able to present yourself and your ability to command a large audience consisting of people notorious for being stubborn and egosyntonic. Thanks again for sharing and being a positive influence in lives of what I would imagine to be hundreds of thousands if not millions.
“You definitely helped us strengthen the core of our leaders and made such a positive impact. We’re grateful for your contribution to our conference.”
“Hi Robyn, thank you so much for presenting at our meeting yesterday in Philly. You were a big hit with everyone and are truly an inspiration. Your energy and enthusiasm hit the mark.”
“Robyn – thank you for supporting our S4 Keynote on Tuesday. I had a chance to read some of the feedback and speak to the attendees and they were very positive on your presentation. You did a great job aligning the message to our Enterprise Sales strategy as well—one team, coming together and helping each other to win. We even had people using some of your quotes to describe business challenges!”
“Robyn, You did a great job at the NCR Sales Kick Off this morning in Orlando! It was WONDERFUL to see the buzz in the hallways afterwards. … You are amazing and inspirational and a great speaker and a great connector—all that and more. Thank you.”
“Please let Robyn know again that I still believe that she was the best presenter with the best message that I have experienced in my 15 years of attending the CACM convention that she spoke at last summer.”
“Let me say that the feedback we received on your presentation was nothing short of stellar. I have heard a number of motivational speakers and there always seems to be some naysayers. There was not a single dissatisfied customer in this group. People shared that they felt inspired. Many of your messages were repeated throughout the next few days, coming from our President and CEO to my colleagues in the field alike. I can think of no finer form of flattery. It proved to be a perfect program that set a tremendous tone for the rest of our days together.”
“I just had the pleasure of listening to one of your talks (Washington Governors Conference) and was so incredibly inspired by it. I can honestly say I have yet to hear a more powerful speaker than you. I couldn’t write notes down fast enough because the information just kept coming and with every word I was moved. I just wanted to say thank you for inspiring me to lead.”
“You have a new fan! Thank you for an outstanding presentation at the Nordic Personal Development Congress in Oslo during last weekend. … You are the very best [speaker] I have ever heard. You have an important and great message that is easily applicable to the business world. You have such positive energy, you are genuine, humble, have self-confidence, use humor and great videos to strengthen the message. … I simply loved it!”
“Last month I heard Robyn deliver a marvelous presentation from the main platform at Million Dollar Round Table. She kept the audience of some 7,000 people spellbound, and equally as impressive was her willingness to take the time and interest to listen to, and share with the participants afterward. Robyn has a powerful message and delivers it very effectively.”
“We have received a tremendous response on your keynote presentation. It was a good time, considering our growth, to have you here to speak about teamwork. Your journey, your heart, and the way you tell the story resonated with people. I am so glad they were able to see what I did when researching for a speaker.”
“I can’t remember a speaker having such an impact on me, and I wanted to read your book and get more of the winning thought processes and how I can apply them at Verint.”
-1Our event has already gotten rave reviews and that is due to your inspiring and dynamic presentation. We appreciate you making the trip to Indiana and sharing your experiences and insights with us! I am excited for our follow-up sessions where we can continue to incorporate the 8 essential elements of human synergy into Roche’s culture! You have a big fan base in Indianapolis! Thanks again,
“I wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed your motivational session at our 2014 Global Sales Summit. … You truly motivated me with your presentation and life-stories, a great mix of enthusiasm, true grit and humor. I look forward to you impacting my life and career as I learn more about your story.”
“I cannot thank you enough for speaking at our recent National Convention in Connecticut. I have read your book and am in the process of starting to implement some of your ideas into our teamwork strategy here at Watertech of America, Inc.,. Thanks again for bringing a whole new meaning to TEAMWORK. I am excited to see its implementation here at Watertech take us to new levels personally, professionally in both our personal and business lives. ”
“Your presentation was extremely motivating. WOW!! Your life and the risks you have taken are truly inspiring and phenomenal! I am 53 and will never be climbing the Andes or any other peaks, but I strive to continue overcoming difficulty with a positive attitude. You gave me more hope and direction and reminded me of the little tiger I used to be. Thank you so very much! Keep sending your strong message of achievement and success! “
“Thank you again for all your help and time in preparing for this event. You did a fantastic job and folks are still talking about you. We have made many references to your messages, especially since we are dealing with a snow storm right now. Your message is powerful and inspiring, and people loved your personality. I can’t thank you enough and I look forward to seeing you again soon.”
“I listened to you speak at the Sound Physicians ‘National Leadership Conference’. I just wanted to let you know how impressed I was with not only your ability to motivate, your storied past, or your ideas on living well and collaboratively but with the way in which you were able to present yourself and your ability to command a large audience consisting of people notorious for being stubborn and egosyntonic. Thanks again for sharing and being a positive influence in the lives of what I would imagine to be hundreds of thousands if not millions. “
“You are an amazing person. A true inspiration to all. We are all grateful that you were there to show us not only that it could be done but how we—the mere mortals—could do it as well. Thank you from our collective hearts.“
“It was a pleasure to meet you on Wednesday and record your talk. Women were so motivated by your thoughts and positive energy! After your keynote we collected inspirational statements from them and scribed them on an idea wall with the theme “Imagine the possibility if…” There were a lot of women who recapped one of your key ideas, then took a picture after it was drawn and sent it to their daughters. You touched a lot of lives on Wednesday. I look forward to the next time our paths cross. “
“Awesome talk this morning at HBA! I am impressed by how engaging your entire talk was for this audience. You do a great job of using language we can all relate to regardless of organization or occupation, and then you serve it up with a platter of unforgettable stories. I very much enjoyed it. I expect we will be looking for ways to introduce you and your messages to a broader Baxalta team. Thanks for inspiring us!”
“Thanks for joining us in Atlanta for our global management meeting.
Your presentation was excellent and very inspiring. I heard from many
of our people telling me how much they enjoyed your presentation and
how quickly the time went by. Many said you were the best keynote
speaker that we have had over the 18 years that we have been in
existence. Take care and best of luck to you in the future. I hope your upcoming
hip replacement goes well and that you will be able to continue your
MORE THAN PERFECT…AMAZING…MESSAGE ON TARGET FOR US AND FUN…SO
MANY OF OUR ATTENDEES TOLD ME SHE WAS THE BEST KEYNOTE WE’VE EVER HAD!
Thank you for the cookies and I’m looking forward to receiving my new Merrell shoes!
More importantly, thank you for such a tremendous presentation at our meeting. Many, many people came up and thanked me for choosing you as our keynote speaker and complimenting you on how well you tied in your themes to our practice.
Your presentation was awesome. I am thrilled that we were able to have you participate.
I don’t know if there is some way for us to provide any references, but I know that if needed you only need ask.
The importance of a motivated, functional team to organizational success cannot be overstated. Robyn Benincasa is a World Champion Adventure Racer and an award-winning motivational speaker. The past 20 years have seen Robyn and her teams successfully race through the jungles of Borneo, climb the Himalayan peaks of Tibet, swim the rivers of Fiji, and fight the brush fires of Southern California. It is through these life-affirming and team-building experiences that Robyn developed her unique perspective on what it takes to succeed against all odds and go the distance at work and in life: Human Synergy and Teamwork. With this key message, Robyn has ignited meetings and motivated audiences to look at how they can transform their own groups into World Class Teams. In 2016, her quest to impart this lesson continues.
Thank you! You delivered on your promise to engage with the sales organization in a way that made them think about concepts like “human synergy” from a perspective that they had not considered before. The positive feedback from everyone in that room is overwhelming positive. You were amazing. I’ve received positive comments from sales people, marketing executives, corporate executives, and the list goes on. People felt that hearing from someone with your background brought a refreshing perspective that you connected perfectly to relevant experiences in corporate culture.
As you described standing in bat poop covered in leeches, I could not help but make a connection to the extraordinarily difficult year that a company separation created for all the folks in that room. Your references to what planning and strategy really looks like in your sport, translates perfectly to the behavior and planning that the best in sales demonstrate.
You are an inspiration to me and everyone at Veritas. We all look forward to working with you again in the near future.
I thought you were great and we got GREAT feedback from the attendees. I really appreciate you squeezing us in; you were a perfect addition to the event and you were able to bundle it all together! THANK YOU!!!! Great cause and I too am glutton for punishment (albeit not as much as you!).
Thanks for all you do! You were great!
Robyn was a home run. She impressed everyone in the room, especially the men.
They were in awe of her athleticism and perseverance. The video footage was great and I am confidant she will be getting a bunch of bookings from her talk.
“I wanted to thank you for the excellent presentation at Verint this past week. Your content was so educational and entertaining at the same time. It was the highlight of the conference for me.”
She was amazing!! People are still raving about her!
Thank you for everything!
So first of all, thank you. Thank you for putting it in my head that I can’t hold myself back due to current limitations. Thank you for sharing your story and making it so compelling that we decided to take action. That doesn’t always happen.
Robyn – our chapter of AHRMM had many leaders at this year’s event and we all loved your talk. You were amazing!
“Thank you for a fabulous and outstanding presentation during our C3 Outfitters event this past week in Phoenix. Your presentation style and message really energized the attendees. We heard nothing but great comments and feedback from many of the attendees throughout the week.
Your flexibility to work with us on the message, theme and your overall participation was very refreshing and we appreciate all your efforts both prior and during the event. Your presentation was one of the highlights for the event and helped to make this one of our most successful C3 events to-date.”
“AWESOME!!!!! No other way to describe you or the presentation that you gave at our Summit meeting last week. I spent the week listening to a number of people talking about the session, your achievements and how they tied in so well to some of the issues that we are trying to implement on the one hand and overcome on the other. The 8 Human Synergies tied perfectly into the messaging that we had done earlier in the day and we tied a number of your key messages into the next two team building events we did in the afternoon.
You were inspiring for me personally and certainly for my team.”
“I have known Robyn Benincasa for a number of years, and have utilized her talents as both a speaker, as well as a leader of team oriented events. While the SVP for the Western U.S. for Starbucks Coffee, I selected her as both the lead speaker, as well as the team leader, for our annual Store Manager Leadership Conference, held in Tacoma, Washington. The event was an overwhelming success. In fact, 6 years later, they are still talking about the key learnings, the fun, and the excitement of working together as a team.
She also addressed the national Leadership Conference for Starbucks Coffee, speaking to about a 1000 attendees, including the Board of Directors, Howard Schultz, the founder, as well as the senior leadership team, the corporate office, and the entire field organization for Starbucks. She was a great success.
Likewise, 2 years ago I was the C.O.O. for It’s A Grind Coffee Houses, and we invited Robyn to facilitate a one day team building event, as well as deliver the keynote address at the first ever national Franchisee Convention. She went above and beyond, ensuring the success of the event, and providing much in the way of key learnings the each Franchisee could take back to their individual businesses. I can recommend Robyn and her team to provide an exceptional event that will thrill the audience short term, and provide meaningful change in the long-term as she provides key insights into the synergies of building a World Class team.”
“It’s been just over a year since we did that meeting with you and people still talk about being the best teambuilding meeting we’ve ever held.”
“I would honored to recommend Robyn Benincasa as a keynote speaker for any of your clients. Robyn is a captivating, dynamic speaker with a style that it is both approachable and extremely compelling. While adventure racing and Robyn’s exploits are clearly larger-than-life, she is so natural and unassuming that her audiences are readily inspired and eager to put her lessons to work.
We have used Robyn as a keynote for groups as large as 550. She has no problem commanding each attendee’s attention. She is consistently among our highest rated speakers. We’ve used, among others, Joe Thiesman, Jerry Linegar (the astronaut), and Ben Carson (the surgeon) for groups as large as 1300. Each has been very good. Robyn is better. Not only is her message as compelling, but her multimedia approach is well suited to very large groups; 1200 or more should be no problem.”
“Robyn Benincasa’s words make us reflect on what great leadership qualities are and remind us of the importance of leading with our head and heart.”
“I thought I knew the importance of teamwork, but your presentation at our sales meeting drove home just how critical teamwork is in every aspect of life…business and personal! Thank you for bringing this to the forefront of my everyday dealings in life, you reiterated and drove home what I already thought I knew…just magnified it 1000 times. You truly are inspirational. After hearing you speak, I am truly inspired to be a better team member.”
“Robyn’s background and experience provide us with a unique and much needed perspective for our RealTime participants, and her award winning adventure racing team embodies what it means to be a leader today. We always get an INCREDIBLE response to her ‘Building World Class Teams’ sessions and adventure events.“
“Robyn does a fabulous job of bringing the principles of adventure racing into the corporate environment. She did a great job of customizing her session to meet the needs and objectives of our national management meeting. The audience was riveted and our managers continue to talk about Robyn and the lasting impact she made!”
“Robyn has a singular energy which she transmits to her audience, allowing them, at least vicariously, to live what she has experienced. Her story is a call-to-action to be more active at whatever level in the great outdoors.”
“I just wanted to say thank you again for generously sharing your knowledge and enthusiasm at InSight’s 2012 Annual Convention in Anaheim, Calif. Your participation makes the Annual Convention such an exceptional event for our attendees! Your keynote presentation was very well received! It is through quality presentations such as yours that our attendees increase their knowledge and skills, all while growing their professional business network.
It was a pleasure working with you throughout this process—thanks again!”
“As a speaker’s representative it’s always gratifying to receive a glowing evaluation from a client who recently featured one of our highly sought after presenters. Kathy Dundee Meeting Planner of the Texas Association of School Boards has relied on us for years to secure just that great and appropriate speaker. How about this report on Robyn Benincasa from Kathy?
Robyn Benincasa was in a word “awesome”—she hit the nail on the head with what I needed her to say to our folks…anyone looking for team-building/team-speak should hire her! She was super easy to work with and was great with all the attendees afterwards. She will be hard for us to top next year!! Excellent recommendation!”
“I want to personally thank you again for playing such a significant role in the success of our meeting! The feedback on your presentation and messaging, as well as your preparation, has been nothing less than fantastic!!”
“Robyn, thanks again for the awesome presentation you gave to our HR meeting this past Monday. It was by far the best and most inspiring talk I have ever heard. I have taken to heart some of the key messages from your talk and have and will use them in my personal as well as my work life. You really made a difference and for that I am grateful.”
“THANK YOU for a wonderful, inspiring and uplifting presentation this morning. The buzz around the agency is fantastic, and many people have stopped by my office or sent me mails to tell me how much they liked it, and how much you amazed them.”
“Your ‘8 Essential Elements of Human Synergy’ was by far the presentation was absolutely the best of all the sessions I attended at this year’s HDI Conference. In fact it was the best corporate presentation I have ever seen. I really DID leave the session inspired.”
“Hi, Just had the most amazing time at Tony Robbins leadership seminar! Your presentation was the most inspirational session I have seen and your leadership distinctions and congruence is incredible.”
“I saw your inspiring presentation at Leadership Academy for Tony Robbins last week and was impressed by all you have done when they introduced you, but I was most impressed with you as a person, your spirit and your great insights on leadership and team work which I am putting to use since I saw you.”
“Thank you for the incredibly inspiring presentation at Robbins Leadership Academy last month. As a leader and Sales Director in the home building industry, your insights and standards have raised the bar for building and coaching teams into the future. You radiate the qualities we all should strive to attain personally and it was an honor to have experienced your presentation, your perspective and you. Keep the fire burning. You are exceptional!”
“We are still hearing rave reviews about Robyn’s presentation so we wanted to share that with you….many have commented that it has been the most entertaining and introspective of the presentations we have had …kudos.”
“Just saw Your presentation at Ignition 2009 and it was remarkable. Thank you for the great ideas. Being a Marine during Viet Nam I understand teamwork and u reminded me again of the principles of becoming ‘WE’ as an organization in order that we all succeed. Your adventure races were also incredible. Thanks for the inspiration.”
“Robyn is perhaps the best team building leader I’ve ever been around. Her ability to motivate is centered on her ability to see that people can accomplish way more than what they think is possible, then helps them laugh all the way to the finish. She is remarkably gifted, yet sufficiently disciplined to become and remain one of the top endurance athletes in the world. She is passionate about helping others, and gives selflessly on both the mundane and the grand scale. She knows what it takes to struggle through adversity arriving successfully with her team, and can communicate what it takes in a charmingly effective manner.”
“I just wanted to thank you again for your participation at our recent Welk Summit. You turned out to be an exceptional speaker and I’m grateful for the impact you made on our team.
The overwhelming response from your presentation was exceptionally positive. Many people emailed me afterwards, especially some of the ladies on our team, grateful for a speaker that connected to them while still showing signs of strength and vulnerability. You, as a speaker, were the perfect fit at the right time.”
“Robyn was absolutely fantastic at the ORD conference in Toronto. She has an outstanding ability to immediately connect with the audience and ‘shush’ them with her incredible story. All hearts and minds in the room were captivated by her presence and detailed account of her personal journey and that of others who complete these amazing eco-challenge events. What resonated incredibly well were the elements of teamwork and how each member takes turns being the leader when it makes the most sense, particularly from a skill set or capability perspective—and particularly when it counts, i.e. when the fun stops! She exudes courage, strength, compassion, determination, and fun! All qualities that we want to emulate as leaders. I definitely would love to have her come back again sometime in the future – she is truly one amazing and inspiring person!”
“Thank you so much for your amazing keynote presentation at our Institute last week. Many are still raving about your presentation. In fact our AV guys and our national association representative who hear many speakers each month said that you were the best speaker that they have ever heard (kudos)! You knocked it out of the ballpark! You started off our conference on a high and the energy continued throughout the conference.”
“I have to say, even a year after you spoke with Langan, your message still resonates with me. It’s said people won’t necessarily remember what you said, but they’ll remember how you made them feel. You sure made us feel that anything is possible with teamwork! I follow you on your Facebook page… you are doing awesome things! I’m continually impressed by your foundation and how you inspire so many women.”
“Thank you again for the tremendously inspiring talk you delivered to our team. I continue to receive phone calls and emails about how inspiring and entertaining you were, and thanking me for arranging your presentation. Our meeting was characterized by several individuals as one of the best they’ve been to, and you played a huge part in that.”
“I wanted to thank you for the excellent presentation at Verint this past week. Your content was so educational and entertaining at the same time. It was the highlight of the conference for me.”
Robyn was one of the most enthusiastic and motivational Key Note Speakers I have had the pleasure of meeting. Her passion for team-building and coaching is incredibly evident in everything she does. To say that I was “inspired” would be an understatement. It has been almost a year since attending a summit she spoke at, and he words still drive my career: “Winning is that way!” This moved me so much that I came home and immediately started searching for some kind of memento to remind me of this goal. I found a plaque that reads “Don’t look back, you’re not going that way.” Thank you, Robyn, for believing in others and encouraging them to keep moving FORWARD!
Hi Robyn, you were awesome at SchoolDude West 2016 in San Diego. Thanks for your inspirational teaming presentation. After reading the first part of your book and witnessing your presentation I really really enjoyed your message as you took us along your/our journey and made us look at us as individuals as well as team members.
Thanks for the rules on man hugs in your session and I shared with my work team at the conference that your back muscles rocked and they were jealous! The two ladies that I work with then said well heck yes did you see her arms? Too funny then they wanted hugs as well…you were a fun presenter!
