Through harrowing experiences in places like the jungles of Borneo and the Himalayan peaks, Benincasa has studied the good, the bad, and the not-so-pretty of extreme teamwork. Her refreshing and unique techniques build and foster impactful, inspired teams that succeed against all odds and turn setbacks into comebacks.

Benincasa was named one of the “World’s Top 50 Keynote Speakers” by Real Leaders, the “#1 Female Speaker” by, and is one of the “Top 10 Speakers” featured in the Harvard Business Review. She has motivated countless leaders and teams for Fortune 500 companies, including IBM, Starbucks, Walmart, Boeing, Johnson & Johnson, HubSpot, Intel, and more. Her game-changing keynotes inspire audiences to grab life with one hand, our teammates with the other, and create that special magic that makes each person stronger together than they could ever be alone.

  • Thank you Robyn for delivering an amazing keynote at the Intel Women’s Technical Conference in September. I got to sit front and center as I listened to her awesome stories of adventure and great challenge. You did a superb job of translating those experiences into our everyday team building challenges and opportunities at OTF!!! Thank you!!!

  • Robyn was a home-run for our leadership conference of 1,500 attendees. She is high-energy, engaging, inspiring, and does a great job connecting the story of adventure racing and teamwork to leadership in the business world. We received great feedback from our participants, and are very happy to have found Robyn. I would highly recommend her for any size event!

  • 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.

  • 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!
