Sophie Bennett is a best-selling author, professional keynote speaker and a motivation and leadership expert. She is a visiting faculty member at The Cranfield School of Management, where she speaks on leadership, motivation and effective communication.

While researching how people at the top of their game get motivated, the author made a remarkable discovery: their motivation is created by 5 different forces that spark energy, enthusiasm and passion. When those forces ignite, everything shifts. You become unstoppable.
The book features interviews with 35 world class performers including sportspeople, entrepreneurs, award winning scientists, and business leaders. Contributors include; Brian Tracy, New York Times best-selling author Carl Hester MBE, Olympic gold medallist; Judy Naake MBE, founder of the St Tropez tanning empire; Dorie Clark, author and former presidential campaign spokesperson; Paul Dunn, Social Innovation Fellow and Chairman of B1G1. Find Your Flame will help you to reveal your own unique blueprint for unstoppable drive, so you can succeed faster, enjoy the journey and fulfil your true potential.As a passionate speaker, Sophie presents around the world on the topics of motivation, leadership, and communication.
