William Rainey Bennett Vital and Authoritative Speaker on Timely Subjects Figure The Man Who Can Straws in the Wind The Psychology of Power Keeping Sane in a Crazy World REDPATH WILLIAM RAINEY BENNETT SOMEONE facetiously said that Celebrities may come and celebrities may go, but Bennett goes on forever. After all, this is more than a joke. Look at the record! For over twenty years William Rainey Bennett has lectured professionally at substantial fees, in practically every city in the United States. In many places he has become an institution. Most of his engagements now are return dates. There is no greater compliment and no better test of ability. Bennett looks and lives his philosophy which is, You're never down and out until you admit it to YOURSELF. He radiates energy like a dynamo and gathers strength as he goes. His Man-Who-Can lecture is a logical successor to Dr. Conwell's Acres of Diamonds. He has the rare technique to unlock the powers of men and set them going places. He thinks straight, hits hard and makes you like it. He has a high sense of humor and pulls more laughs out of an audience than many who specialize on fun making. Here is the slogan he pastes in his hat—The Minute you stop growing you begin dying. Bennett is still growing. He is a great favorite with youth. The management believes that Bennett has an almost unbeatable record as a dynamic speaker for educators and business men. POPULAR BENNETT LECTURES The Man Who Can A sure-fire lecture for banquets and conventions. Straws in the Wind What is the meaning of this popularity of Huey Long, Father Coughlin, Upon Sinclair and Dr. Townsend? The Psychology of Power A practical search for That Something that all great men have and that YOU might have. Keeping Sane in a Crazy World Much called for just now.
