his passionate, almost savagely energetic monologues,
Zander leaps about the stage from his piano to a
flip chart and back to the piano. He plays, lectures,
spins tales, and pushes his audience to laugh, cry,

what Ben Zander does in front of a large audience
is like trying to capture the essence of electricity

a powerful natural source of light, heat and
energy, but what is it exactly? Perhaps elecricity
is not such a bad metaphor; Benjamin Zander turns
people on - to their own talent, to their relationships,
to their lives.
Whether standing before a mob of corporate bigwigs
or a small music class of teens, Zander uses
music and his own exuberantly expressive persona
to deliver his main lesson: how to live life
passionately and fully in the vast and liberating
realm of possibility; how to become braver, more
open to human connection, more capable of expressing
our deepest, most creative impulses……..
What distinguishes Zander is his dedication to
not only living this way himself but somehow
viscerally infusing people with the same vital
currents of enthusiasm, confidence and delight
that course through his own being"…

Ben - The safe space that you created in that auditorium
allowed us to experience self-expression in a challenging
and nurturing way. You took a simple everyday act
like singing happy birthday and showed us that by
giving it our all (by giving it your all) we could
move each other to tears of joy. I thank you for
the bottom of my heart for such a wonderful lesson.
I now carry the possibility of joy inside me."

"Ben Zander's presentation
was, literally, the most important contribution
I've ever heard at a conference. Not only the music
and the wit and the sheer fun, but the profound
insights and wisdom. A moving and memorable occasion
for all present. This was a breakthrough event
in corporate creativity."
