#1 New York Times Bestselling Author | Co-Founder of The Buried Life Movement
As the #1 New York Times bestselling author of What Do You Want to Do Before You Die? and star of MTV’s high rated The Buried Life, Ben Nemtin uses keynote presentations to help empower and motivate groups to make a difference and live courageously. Nemtin, as the co-founder of The Buried Life movement, has shared his message of radical possibility on The Today Show, The Oprah Winfrey Show, CNN, FOX, and NBC News.
In his first year of university, Nemtin was unexpectedly hit with a depression that forced him to drop out. In an attempt to feel more alive, he created the world’s greatest bucket list with his three best friends. They borrowed a rickety old RV and crisscrossed North America, achieving the unthinkable. And most importantly, every time they accomplished a dream of their own, they helped a complete stranger cross something off their bucket list.
From playing basketball with President Obama to having a beer with Prince Harry, from reuniting a father and son after seventeen years to surprising a young girl with a much-needed bionic arm—Nemtin’s bucket list quest has inspired millions to thrive personally and professionally. President Obama called Nemtin and The Buried Life “inspiration for a new generation” and Oprah declared their mission “truly inspiring.”
An acclaimed keynote speaker, Nemtin has headlined business conferences and Fortune 100 leadership teams around the world, garnering standing ovations from AIG, Anthem, Amazon, FedEx, Harvard, Microsoft, Verizon, and more. Ben is recognized as one of the “World’s Best Motivational Speakers” as well as a “World’s Top Organizational Culture Thought Leader” by Global Gurus.
