DON'T STOP

DON'T QUIT

KEEP MOVING FORWARD

"Ben’s powerful talk is one that I will not soon forget, and neither will you!" 

"He was connected -- connected to the gravity of his story, its impact, and the indelible connection he’d make with anyone who heard it."

I’ve coached a lot of speakers -- from corporate executives to TEDx Talk Speakers. Yet, the moment I met Ben O’Donnell – I knew he was differentiated -- 

in both his leadership capability and his voice as a storyteller.

He was connected -- connected to the gravity of his story, its impact, 

and the indelible connection he’d make with anyone who heard it.

Ben’s leadership in and of itself is a courageous act.  He’s a true champion in so many ways.

Ben O’Donnell’s story is that of a true victor. Surviving an extreme Covid case, completing the Ironman triathlon , and fanning the flames of victory inside his listeners as he encourages each of us: “Don’t stop. Don’t quit. Keep moving forward.” Ben speaks directly to those moments in each of our lives where we’re tempted to give in and give up. He speaks to our fears, our desperation, and our despondency. And he empowers us to get back in the game and strive for more. Ben’s powerful talk is one that I will not soon forget, and neither will you!
