... His stature and stage presence brought total silence from the audience during his presentation and left them spellbound. His comments illustrated respect for authority, appreciation for role model teachers during his school years... ... People tell me this was our very best Opening Day Prgram, mainly because of our speaker, Winston Bennett III.
Mr. Bennett was the perfect choice to explain the importance of developing a sound health plan at an early age. His talk was not only informative but entertaining as well. He captivated the audience with this descriptions of various experiences while playing in the NBA. I believe Mr. Bennett is an inspirational speaker who would appeal to any age group.
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.
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.
