Mr. Bennett truly made the evening a success. He told stories of his basketball career both as a player and coach. I recommend Mr. Bennett as a feature speaker at any function. He would do well for any organization.
... I cannot tell you the faces I saw come alive as Winston spoke to the students. We never really know who will be touched by one's words. However, I am confident that Coach Bennett touched the lives of many of our students with his inspirational words ...
Winston Bennett spoke to several hundred of our associates and connected with them in a way many other speakers have not. His name recognition from UK basketball, his stories relating to personal challenges, packaged in an overall scheme of change and personal growth allowed our associates to think differently about change, and the value of change.
As one associate put it, "you guys talk about change all the time, but Mr. Bennett came at it from a different angle, and I get it now."
That was precisely what we hoped to achieve, and Winston did it with flying colors.
