Leverage the Science of the Last 8% and Emotional Intelligence to Drive Leadership, Change and Culture

As a math and computer science guy, Bill Benjamin discovered the power of managing emotions while he was working in the technology industry. Bill is an energetic live onstage and virtual emotional intelligence keynote speaker who audiences praise for his honesty about the struggles he had early in his career as a leader. He was so impressed by the Institute for Health and Human Potential’s brain science-based approach to Emotional Intelligence that he became a partner in the company. Now that’s commitment.

For the past 20 years, Bill has delivered keynotes and workshops virtually to IHHP’s top clients when they required a virtual option for their teams. When Covid 19 changed how companies worked, his experience combined with his authentic and engaging style allowed Bill to quickly transition to delivering virtual keynotes and webinars. Learn more about his virtual offerings here.

Bill’s real-world experience in technology and sales means he understands the challenges that organizations face. His degrees in mathematics and computer science lead him to take a practical and scientific approach to helping people understand how the brain responds under pressure, and to leverage that to increase leadership and performance.

Bill has over 30 years of business experience and has provided his expertise on performance and leadership with diverse groups in many high-pressure environments, including the U.S. Marines, NASA, Intel, Goldman Sachs, and even surgeons!

Bill is outstanding. He knows his stuff and is super engaging online. Bill also really knows virtual delivery and adult learning principles. This was a well-designed, well-executed virtual program that allowed for maximal interactivity. It could have gone longer, and I wanted more!

Excellent training! You did a terrific job of applying your topic contextually to mission safety at NASA. I wanted to hear more. Great program!

This was an insightful and practical session. I liked the way you had us practice the strategies rather than just telling us about them. That way, I’ll actually remember it!
