Robyn Benincasa inspires people to grab life with one hand, grab their teammates with the other, and to create that special magic that makes all of us better together than we ever would have been alone!

Robyn Benincasa is the founder of World Class Teams, an adventure racing world champion, a CNN Hero, former corporate sales expert and a full-time firefighter who advises organizations on building World Class Teams of their own. One of the highest-rated, female motivational speakers who regularly shares the stage with world leaders and business icons, her customers include many Fortune companies like Starbucks, Deloitte, Aflac, Fast Company, Boeing, Lockheed Martin, ARAMARK, Siemens, 3M, Coldwell Banker, Ameriprise, Microsoft, AT&T. With a background in marketing, she was previously in corporate sales with Baxter and Allergan and is currently a full-time firefighter.  Eco-Challenge World Champion, CNN Hero, Founder of the Project Athena Foundation (Survivors to Athletes!), 3x Guinness World Record Distance Paddler and proud owner of 2 metal ‘bionic hips’, Robyn definitely knows a thing or two about creating Human Synergy – “that magic that allows groups of ordinary people to accomplish extraordinary things together.” Her New York Times bestselling book How Winning Works, published by Harlequin has been reviewed as “an excellent resource for all business owners on approaching challenges with a team mentality.”

For the last 20 years, she and her teammates have been competing at the front of the pack in the most unique and compelling classrooms on earth—the jungles of Borneo, the Himalayan peaks of Tibet, the rivers of Fiji, the rainforests of Ecuador and the desert of Namibia – studying the good, the bad, and the not-so-pretty in extreme teamwork and mastering the skills required to inspire a group of semi-exhausted people through a seemingly endless series of checkpoints, in pursuit of a seemingly impossible goal, working against crazy deadlines, in constantly changing conditions and all in pursuit of a huge hairy audacious goal. Sounds a lot like your life as a business leader, right?

It is through these harrowing, life-affirming and often hilarious experiences in the world’s most grueling challenges that she has emerged with her refreshing and truly unique perspective on what it takes to build the kind of World Class Teams that succeed against all odds, that triumph in the face of adversity and that win as one in times of great challenge and change. Whether you’re trying to beat the competition to market, scale a looming mountain of a project or simply get your team all marching in the same direction, Robyn’s 8 Essential Elements of Human Synergy will coach you to the finish line of success.

  • Building World Class Teams: The Essential Elements of Extreme Team Performance

    What do the world’s most successful teams have in common? They have the ability to upgrade their teamwork to Human Synergy— ”the magic that allows groups of ordinary people to accomplish extraordinary things together.”

    If your goal is to take a group of successful individuals and make them even better… together, this teambuilding keynote is the perfect message to set the tone for your event!
  • Inspired Leadership: Creating A Culture of Champions

    Inspired Leaders create a culture of greatness every day by promoting an environment that fosters innovation, teamwork, collaboration, commitment, ownership, and peak performance— the core drivers of goal success—at every level and in every function throughout the organization.

    In Robyn’s Inspired Leadership keynote, she shares the essential skills and mindset that inspire a Culture of Champions, in which every team member is internally driven to.
  • Why Winners Win

    Drawing inspiration from Robyn’s team of World Champion adventure athletes as well as “Winners” from all walks of life, Why Winners Win uncovers the common traits and attitudes of the world’s most consistent high performers.
  • Leading Through Change

    How do the world’s most consistently high performing leaders ALWAYS find a way to get their teammates to the finish line and achieve their goals against all odds? Are they lucky, blessed or immune to setbacks? Nope. Great leaders experience times of great turbulence, challenge and change in every aspect of their lives—but it is their attitude and mindset that carries them and their teammates to greater heights in the FACE of that change.
The event was an overwhelming success. We are still talking about the key learnings, the fun, and the excitement of working together as a team.
