Venus Jean Cowles Copernoll – 2014… Thank you, Zen Benefiel, for your never-ending quest to spread love, joy, inner peace, and acceptance (not merely tolerance) in a world that so often seems to embrace quite the opposite. I appreciate both you and your message, and I admire your strength and resolve to not let fear prevent you from taking a stand for what you know is right. You inspire me. Thank you.

No doubt you are looking for a great speaker with a message that inspires, motivates and unleashes renewed focus and peak performance. What really is most important to inspire the best personally and professionally?
Using real-world examples from business peer groups, professional experiences and often out-of-this-world poignant pieces, Zen keeps his audience enthralled and inspired to conspire creatively together, building commUnity. He’s known for his serendipitous synchronicities and weaving poignant pieces together on the fly, calling attention to the immediacy of how reality reflects our attention and intention.
Zen can craft a presentation to fit your need. Unlike many ‘in the can’ motivational speakers, he uses ‘canned’ material that engages and inspires your people with uncanny results in how he connects challenge and change. He’s been delivering messages that matter since 1991, when he first chose to step on stage with an idea and an open heart. See Zen’s Mystic Moment for more.
Zen can craft a presentation to fit your need. Unlike many ‘in the can’ motivational speakers, he uses ‘canned’ material that engages and inspires your people with uncanny results in how he connects challenge and change. Zen’s personal and professional experience has garnered a vocabulary spanning many industries and vocations; great tools for creating humorous anecdotes that cover the gamut of understanding.
Orphaned at birth, adopted 6 weeks later and informed at 5 years old, his life has been full of questions most folks never think about, let alone dive into rabbit holes in search of answers. Zen had a near-death experience as a teenager that changed his life profoundly. His professional careers, several, have included aerospace manufacturing, education, event management, radio and television production to name a few. His life experiences border the mystical, even in industry scenarios, and his wisdom is that of an elder, a great grandfather.
His favorite ‘turn on’ is to share his personal story of transformation from orphan to accomplished professional and even pseudo-celebrity status; the trials and tribulations one has in life as part of the process of success and tasty tidbits for the trip. His life is a real-world adventure, better than a movie script.
