MSU BILLINGS NEWS SERVICES —Renowned speaker, producer, and bestselling author Ben Nemtin will be speaking at Montana State University Billings on Thursday, September 20 at 6 p.m. in Petro Theatre. Nemtin will be giving his lecture, “Five Steps to Make the Impossible Possible” to the students and community of MSU Billings.


Nemtin is the creator, producer, and star of the MTV series The Buried Life, and the author of #1 New York Times Bestseller What Do You Want To Do Before You Die. His message confronts contemporary topics of importance to the MSU Billings community, such as mental health and endurance of will. Nemtin has spoken at organizations such as Amazon, Harvard Law School, and TedXTeen, and now will be bringing his expertise to share with Billings.


Ben Nemtin is on a mission to achieve the unthinkable. From playing basketball with President Obama to streaking a soccer field, from raising over $400,000 for charity to placing a record-breaking $250,000 bet on roulette—his bucket list quest has inspired millions to follow their personal goals. Nemtin weaves the compelling story of how The Buried Life grew from 100 impossible dreams scribbled on a piece of paper into a global movement of millions and skillfully connects his story to the fabric of our daily lives.


The MSU Billings Center for Engagement encourages all students, families, and community members to attend this unique opportunity to learn from Ben’s experiences. There is no cost to attend this event, which is open to the public.
