Freddie Bennett MC/Entertainer Profile


Adventurer, Speaker, Author & Host

Freddie Bennett learned about decision making when a drug dealer held a loaded gun to his head and pulled the trigger. He learned about mindset and resilience while running across the Sahara Desert. He learned about change, confidence and courage while pulling himself back from the brink of suicide and alcohol addiction. And he learned about business growth and performance while helping his clients to make over $200 million extra revenue.

Freddie is a man on a mission to empower people and businesses to achieve extraordinary things. Guinness World Record holder, Adventurer, Ultramarathon Winner, Bestselling Author, Apple top-25 Podcast host, and media commentator, Freddie has been featured by the BBC, Men’s Health Magazine, The Times, The Guardian, TalkTV, NBC and many more. But he has a special secret that makes him a highly in-demand speaker, MC, presenter and advisor..

Only a few years ago, Freddie was an everyday guy in the corporate world. He advised the leaders of businesses including Coca-Cola, Microsoft, Virgin Atlantic, Heineken, HP, Vodafone and Amazon on how to get their teams ‘unstuck’ and generate massive financial and personal success. But underneath the surface, his life was falling apart. He struggled with mental health issues, alcohol addiction, imposter syndrome, anxiety and burnout. At 35, disillusioned, broken and overweight, the sudden, brutal death of his father made Freddie realise that life is short. So he decided to give himself one more shot at greatness, and discover what he was truly capable of.

His energy, humour and passion make him a captivating speaker on a wide range of topics. His talks range from motivational and inspiration tales of running 300km across the Sahara Desert, the hilarious and uplifting stories of being officially The World’s Fastest Fisherman and running the world’s first 60km ‘lockdown ultramarathon’ in his tiny backyard, or sharing the secrets of mindset and resilience backed by 15+ years of expertise in world-leading neuroscience, behavioural change and peak-performance psychology.

Freddie's star continues to rise as he empowers thousands of people to gain the courage, confidence and clarity to change, grow, evolve and win.
