Ben Utecht
2018 “But You LOOK Good” Inspiration Award

Ben Utecht has been selected to be the 2018 recipient of the Invisible Disabilities® Association’s But You LOOK Good Inspiration Award. Ben has been chosen because as someone who is personally journeying through the pain and loss of traumatic brain injury caused by multiple concussions, he inspires others in the midst of their challenges and triumphs. Thank you Ben for your courage to share your story publicly and to use your platform as a positive voice providing hope for so many.

It is rare to find a true Renaissance man anymore, but that’s just that you get with Ben Utecht.  Ben has always chased his dreams, finding his way from a small river town in Minnesota to a Super Bowl championship field.  He has established himself as a prominent corporate and motivational speaker in the areas of leadership and culture. Both of his programs, The Champion’s Way and The MVP Program™, stem from lessons he learned in the locker room with Hall of Fame coach Tony Dungy and in the huddle with future Hall-of-Famer Peyton Manning. Both programs illuminate dynamic ways to succeed in business and life.

I believe, as a speaker, that vulnerability equals connectivity. This is why I approach my keynote presentations with a mission of bringing you on an emotional journey through my life, into a hall-of-fame huddle, and onto a field of high-impact lessons.  All our lives tell a story, and this is how I tell mine!

Ben has found success in many realms, sitting on the prestigious board of the American Brain Foundation, authoring Counting the Days While My Mind Slips Away with Simon and Schuster, and as an award-nominated professional singer, releasing albums including his self titled album, Ben UtechtChristmas Hope and Two Of Hearts: Cherished Love Song Duets.  However, without question, Ben would tell you his greatest accomplishment is being a husband to his beautiful wife and a father to their four daughters.
