Robyn Benincasa, World Champion Adventure Racer Optimizing your Team's Potential for Success Wednesday, Sept. 12, 8:00 a.m.
Robyn Benincasa inspires people to do amazing things like climb Mount Kilimanjaro, run their first triathlon, create their own adventure racing teams or start their own businesses.
Benincasa has made an art form of extreme performance by competing and winning at the highest levels of both sport and business. In her 15-year career as a professional adventure racer, she has competed in close to 40 expedition-length events – gnarly, multiday, multisport killers such as Primal Quest and Eco-Challenge. She has biked through jungles in Borneo, climbed Himalayan giants in Nepal, trekked across lava fields in Fiji, rafted rapids in Chile and racked up multiple world championship titles along the way. In her spare time, she is a full-time firefighter in San Diego on the nation’s first all-female crew.
Benincasa launched World Class Teams and its sister company, Flashover Seminars, to bring her unique and inspiring perspective on teamwork to the corporate world via keynotes, seminars and teambuilding programs like “Extreme Performance: Why Winners Win,” “High Performance Leadership” and her signature program, “The 8 Essential Elements of Human Synergy.” Her unforgettable presentations have taught countless high-performance leaders all over the world about “Building World Class Teams” and the followership skills necessary for dynamic role shifting and true teamwork.
Benincasa founded the Project Athena Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to helping women who’ve endured medical setbacks achieve their athletic dreams, whether it means climbing Mount Kilimanjaro or running a local 10K. The goal? To encourage survivors not just to survive but to thrive in the wake of their diagnoses.
