Speaking – Keynotes

Nelly Ben Hayoun is an experienced and highly engaging speaker who will appeal to audiences who are interested in learning just what really is possible. She offers a keynote which is totally unique and based on the following three key elements:

  • Nothing is Impossible and Nelly’s projects are super human feats of passion, persuasion and dedication. With no connections and no experience, Nelly managed to penetrate NASA and convince them to turn their mission control procedure into an opera which was then performed by the scientists and astronauts themselves. She had it recorded at Skywalker Studios (where Star Wars was recorded) and the soundtrack was written by global stars like Beck, Booby Womack and Damon Albarn. To top it off, the music was physically launched into space in a Japanese rocket in 2013. Her personal brief was to achieve the impossible, and she did it.
  • Hammering Technique is Nelly’s trademark approach, she uses this to break into huge bureaucracies like NASA, the United Nations and even the White House and gets them involved in her outlandish projects. This technique is an inspiration to business people and entrepreneurs who are trying to initiate change and constantly come up against resistance. She’s given inspiration talks at WeTransfer, RedBull, and Entrepreneurs Organisation in China.
  • Totally Unique Nelly’s talks are in a league of their own.  She is a force of nature and she immerses her audience into her projects, and purposely contorts their imagination, challenges their preconceptions of what is design and what is possible. She gets them to dream outside of their comfort zones and the feedback from the audience is always extreme and passionate.
Biography

Client Testimonials

"The magnetic French designer is a force of nature and a genuine pioneer, speaking ten to the dozen while painting visionary pictures of non-standard topics such as space travel and undersea exploration. Yet unlike many stargazers, Ben Hayoun tends to pull off her visions, collaborating with everyone from NASA and the SETI Institute to Icelandic post-rock ground Sigur Rós."

“Nelly was simply amazing. I’m still on a high from talking with Nelly during our tour and her talk! The wealth of knowledge that she posses I love— to be honest, I haven’t talked with someone with such a high level of knowledge in such a long time, it was lovely to have her share her knowledge with us. To be honest, we haven’t had someone like Nelly come in, meaning: it was a barrage of incredibly amazing and inspiring projects and information. Nelly was a much needed jolt of inspiration and inspiring energy. She is like a force of nature with a cool French accent.”

“Part designer, part performance artist, part space traveller, Nelly Ben Hayoun is an inexhaustible source of renewable energy that, if harnessed, could eliminate our dependence on fossil fuels. Indescribable.”
