Ben Nemtin to Keynote #DECAICDC 2019

DECA is pleased to announce Ben Nemtin as the keynote speaker at the Grand Opening Session of the 2019 DECA International Career Development Conference. Ben is the creator, executive producer and cast member of the MTV series, “The Buried Life,” which aired in over 80 countries and is MTV’s highest rated show ever on iTunes.


The #1 New York Times Bestselling author has received standing ovations at AMEX, Amazon, Microsoft, Nationwide, Viacom, Verizon, Levi’s, FedEx, Harvard and more. Inc. Magazine called Ben’s live performances “powerful and inspiring” and he is a Global Gurus Top 30 worldwide organizational culture professional for 2019. Ben is a master storyteller who leaves audiences exhilarated, and with the tools to act on their inspiration.


Ben will deliver his keynote titled “5 Steps to Make the Impossible Possible.” He has driven many other people to chase and achieve their dreams, as both a helping hand and as an inspiration. These experiences have taught him that articulating and prioritizing your personal goals is not a selfish act—but one that creates a ripple effect that can both help others directly and inspire others to live their best life. Ben weaves the remarkable story of how “The Buried Life” grew from 100 impossible dreams into a global movement and connects his story to the fabric of our daily lives.


Ben’s message of radical possibility combined with his “5 Steps to Make the Impossible Possible” leaves audiences not only inspired but also equipped to tackle the seemingly insurmountable. Ben’s system of achieving impossible goals demystifies daunting tasks by turning ‘dreams’ into ‘projects’ and creating a digestible pathway to success. Ben reminds us that it’s never too late to start your list or leave a lasting impact on others.
