Full Biography of Peter Urs Bender


Peter Urs Bender CSP

In this age of information,
a key ingredient of business success is Leadership.
Most people see it as the act of leading others.
Peter Urs Bender sees it as leading ourselves.
It starts with understanding our values,
finding our vision and passion,
taking action and communicating
effectively to create results.

Author of four Canadian best sellers, Peter Urs Bender is an international lecturer and a dynamic speaker. His presentations inform, entertain, and motivate.

But speaking didn't come easily to Mr. Bender. Swiss-born, he didn't even learn English till the age of 23. More importantly, he overcame an extreme fear of speaking publicly, and dyslexia (a learning disability) to get where he is today. Perhaps that's what makes him such a popular speaker, and why companies and the media frequently ask him for advice. He lives what he talks about.

Peter Urs Bender instructs both top managers and employees in almost any industry you can think of-from high technology and science, to service, manufacturing, education and finance. He gives up to 100 keynote presentations and seminars a year.

In the past year he has made dozens of appearances on national radio and television. His down-to-earth philosophy and practical tips have been quoted extensively by Canada's national newspapers, magazines, and many other North American and European publications.

Leadership from Within, is an international best seller. Along with Secrets of Power Presentations, now in its tenth year of publication, it has sold more than 100,000 copies in Canada, and been translated into 10 languages. Both are often used as resource texts in business colleges, universities, and the Fortune Top 500 companies. Presentations earned him the title "Canada's Presentations Guru" in the press.

Secrets of Power Marketing, instantly became a Canadian best seller. It has now been translated into several additional languages. Secrets of Face-to-Face Communication, went into a second printing barely a month after its release. His latest book Gutfeeling, is following the success of his others.

In 1994 Peter Urs Bender received the coveted Certified Speaking Professional designation (CSP) from the U.S. National Speakers Association. Only a few Canadians have ever achieved this distinction. In 1995 he was awarded the Communications and Leadership Award from Toastmasters International, and in 2001 was inducted into the Canadian Speakers Hall of Fame. He is one of only eleven Canadians to be so honored.

His motto is:           "Your past was perfect to get you where you are today."
