Ben Nemtin, Keynote Speaker

Ben Nemtin is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of What Do You Want to Do Before You Die? and star of MTV’s highest rated show ever on iTunes and Amazon called The Buried Life. As co-founder of The Buried Life movement, his message of radical possibility has been featured on The Today ShowThe Oprah Winfrey Show, CNN, FOX, and NBC News. President Obama called Ben and The Buried Life “inspiration for a new generation,” and Oprah declared their mission “truly inspiring.” 

In his first year of university, Nemtin found himself hit with a bout of 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. Most importantly, every time they accomplished a dream, they helped a complete stranger cross something off their bucket list. From playing basketball with President Obama, having a beer with Prince Harry, to reuniting a father and son after seventeen years and surprising a young girl with a much-needed bionic arm. The bucket list quest inspired millions to thrive personally and professionally.
