Mission

Three years ago Freddie Bennett had a Porsche in the driveway, a Rolex on his wrist and granite in the kitchen. He was secure, comfortable, and deeply unhappy. With the death of his father came questions of regret. Stepping out of his comfort zone, he changed his mindset, woke up from the sleepwalking corporate worker and showed up for himself.

He ran 300km across the Sahara Desert, completing the world’s toughest footrace, becoming a Guinness world record holder, an Ironman and ultra marathon winner, raising over $100,000 for charity. He’s not an athlete, a special forces soldier or pampered adventurer. He just decided to stop tolerating anything less than he was capable of. Freddie chose a life less ordinary. Now he is on a mission to empower people and businesses to achieve extraordinary things. He helps people understand that they can leave their comfort zone with sustainable, tangible tools. Freddie asserts that you already have the vehicle for change, he’s just pouring in the jet fuel to help you fly.

He has generated over $237 million for his clients but his passion is using his story to help people unlock possibilities. Not so long ago, he was in the audience. Now, he is proof of change, connecting with as many people as he can, guiding them to step into unknown abilities.

Keynote

People will often recite that we are the product of the five people that we spend the most time with. Freddie believes that we are the product of the five thoughts we spend the most time with. He asserts that if we can change these thoughts then that’s how we can change our lives. If a stressed, depressed, overweight, mentally ill corporate worker can run across the Sahara Desert, then anyone can achieve any goal that they have built barriers around. This authentic truth is at the core of Freddie’s tangible freedom that he empowers in those around him; to be a change maker, not a victim of change.

Freddie Bennett wants you to break the rules. He offers advice for leaders who want to create extraordinary businesses and live a life less ordinary. Gifting tools, tactics and time to achieve impossible goals, Freddie will help you create a legacy to be remembered.

His energy, humour and passion make him a captivating speaker on a wide range of topics. Whether it is guiding organisations, achieving business outcomes, endorsing a resilient mindset or lifting the room into laughter from one of his tales, Freddie Bennett is here to make an impact. It is never too late to become the person you were always meant to be.
