Keynote Speaker

In a pit of depression, Ben Nemtin and his three best friends decided to create the world's greatest bucket list to make them feel alive. They bought a rickety old bus and criss-crossed North America, achieving the unthinkable. And most importantly, every time they accomplished a dream, they helped a stranger cross something off their bucket list. From playing basketball with President Obama to streaking across a professional soccer field, Ben's bucket list quest has inspired millions to chase their dreams and realize that impossible is possible.

As the cofounder of The Buried Life movement, Ben's message of radical possibility has been featured by major media outlets including The Today Show, The Oprah Winfrey Show, CNN, Inc., ABC, CBS, Fox, and NBC News. An acclaimed keynote speaker, Ben's presentation has garnered standing ovations from Amazon, Microsoft, Nationwide, Viacom, Verizon, Levi's, Harvard University, and more.
