Sophie Bennett

Motivational Speaker and Author of Find Your Flame - Why Motivation Matters More Than Talent
Sophie Bennett is a bestselling author and sought-after expert on motivation, leadership and communication. Her new book, "Fired Up - Cracking the Motivation Code" explores five previously undiscovered forces that inspire her readers to excel in life and seek the best work results.

The "5 Flames of Motivation" will facilitate the comprehension of what drives the choices one makes in life and how to uncover previously hidden talents. As part of her research for 'Fired Up', Sophie interviewed over 50 leading figures from businesses and sport and gathered a collection of 'never-heard before' stories. The testimonies came as a result of inspiring leaders to share their success with audiences.

Her background as a ski instructor and professional dressage rider served as foundation for tackling different challenges that most of us face in business and life. Teaching terrified beginners to ski offered insight into how to help people overcome the fears that hold them back. On the other hand, training half-ton horses built a unique perspective on communication, developing self-confidence and delivering high profile business projects. All in all, the experience shed light on the ups and downs of influencing behaviours and leading under pressure.

Sophie ignites her passion for great leadership with every keynote. Her presentation style has been described as warm, engaging and the most commonly used feedback word from delegates to-date is 'inspiring'. She has appeared on stage in the UK, Europe and the USA. Sophie will always request a full brief about your event so each talk could be tailored towards your audience and could fit seamlessly into your conference, event or training program.

Sophie does a phenomenal job of including the audiences in her presentations, her content has purpose and merit for many areas of your business, life and leadership challenges. If she is speaking anywhere within your area I would strongly suggest you attend her sessions. You will forever remember her and her message as it applies to your everyday life. Her words will echo in your daily business life regardless of your profession.
