Theresa Behenna - Biography

Australian born Theresa Behenna is a performance expert.

She is also an award winning speaker, internationally acclaimed piano entertainer, funny emcee, author, recording artist and totally unrelated to Olivia Newton John.

Laid off from her office job during a recession Down Under, Theresa began playing the piano anywhere that paid money or free food and ended up touring the world.

Armed with a positive attitude, a passion for performance and thirty one evening dresses Theresa appeared in some of the world’s most prestigious venues from Tahiti to Tokyo, Singapore to Switzerland before celebrities Andrew Lloyd Webber, Matt Lauer, Elton John, Princess Grace, ‘James Bond’ and President Bush Sr. In 2006 her extraordinary career on the entertainment stage was highlighted when Coca Cola chose her to perform at the Winter Olympics in Italy where she became the only world class pianist to bring back a gold medal. (Minor matter it’s of the candy kind.)

Theresa moved to Texas in 1982 and there after began combining her background as a secretary, musician, business owner, actress and TV talk show host with popular songs, Aussie humor and a motivational message that launched her onto the speaking stage.

Using mastery of the piano as parallel principles for success, she has inspired thousands of people to become a leader in their field and stand out favorably in today’s competitive work force.

With a firm belief that “fear is what you pass on the way to success” Theresa gives audiences practical strategies to apply in their lives and reach their own level of extraordinary performance. Her universal appeal has engaged, energized and uplifted a wide range of clients such as ExxonMobil, Texas A & M, Women’s Council of Realtors, Gulf Coast Human Resources, Memorial Hermann Hospital, National Association of Purchasing Managers, Romance Writers of America, Metro National Corporation, Communicators Federal Credit Union and many more.

As a professional member of the National Speakers Association Theresa was honored to win the John Wolfe Award for speaking excellence in 2007. A contributing author to the anthology "Rekindling the Human Spirit” she has written numerous articles for trade associations and currently writes an ezine newsletter and very cool blogs.

Her top selling piano CD “Songs for Friends” was recorded in 2001 with a second album soon to be released. Theresa resides in Texas where she has yet to sound like a native Texan.

* She uses the piano to emphasize key points resulting in memorable information & a unique event

* The funny factor – people learn more when they’re laughing

Theresa’s goal is to make her meeting planner look like a rock star, give audiences a phenomenal experience and be the easiest, most well-prepared speaker her clients ever work with.

She is most sought after by meeting planners looking to blow people’s socks off at their annual conferences. (Sock collector not included in fee).
