Larry Benet has achieved great success by harnessing the power of connectivity for businesses, professional speakers, authors, and world-class thought leaders. His firm, Larry Benet Consulting, provides hands-on training and personal introductions to thousands of high-value contacts across the globe.
Early in his career, Larry was active in the financial services industry. However, that led Larry to realize that the most powerful asset any individual could possess is the ability to connect with others. He quickly realized that his natural talents as a connector could be put to use by helping people of all walks of life become better at connecting with others.
From there, Larry has made it his mission to build value for everyone that he connects with. It is not uncommon to find Larry at conferences actively building value in real-time by developing long-lasting relationships with C-Level executives, sales & business development professionals, creative artists, and virtually anyone who is focused on building better personal networks and harnessing the tremendous power of connected relationships.
Some of Larry’s business & professional successes include:
SANG: Speakers and Author’s Networking Group
The SANG community is a tightly-knit group of over 1,000 professional speakers, authors, entrepreneurs and C-Level executives, and humanitarians. Convening once a year at the annual SANG event, these individuals collaborate and connect in powerful ways.
The Thought Leaders Summit
In 2010, Larry Benet brought together some of the top minds in business and humanitarian causes to focus on a variety of challenges facing the world today. The result was a powerful summit resulting in millions of dollars of charitable fundraising, as well as the creation of several new business partnerships that netted tens of millions of deal-flow, hundreds of jobs being created, and long-lasting personal relationships between attendees.
