Mark Bentz is a speaker, entrepreneur, and coach with a passion for helping others to live an exceptional life, without limitations. Born and raised in Vancouver, Mark Bentz was diagnosed with degenerative eye disease at the age of 9. By the age of 19, Mark had lost virtually all of his eyesight. Yet, he has never allowed the loss of his sight to stop him from achieving his goals physically, mentally and professionally.

Mark Bentz started out as a competitive alpine skier, making headlines in 1984 when he won 2 gold medals at the Winter Paralympic Games in Innsbruck, Austria. This athletic path took him from alpine skiing to hockey. Mark is an active member of the Canadian Blind Hockey Association – he sat as the vice president of the association and spends his spare time teaching visually impaired youth and young adults to build resilience through hockey.

In addition to his dedication to helping young people hone leadership skills through athletics, Mark Bentz is the founder and director of Electra Health, Canada’s largest multidisciplinary clinic. Mark’s greatest passion is to teach others what he has learned through his navigation of the business and health world with a disability. As a business coach and speaker, Mark wants to support others as they grow their own companies in business and teach others that you really can live an exceptional life as a business owner, without limitations!

get hungry, get focused and take action - the art of resiliency and overcoming adversity in business

  • Keynote Presentation
  • Mark speaks to business owners and professionals about the encounters they will inevitably face when it comes to adversity in their business. Adversity is an essential component to success, but on the other hand, it is also the most important driving factor in failure.

    It’s how you handle this adversity that separates a successful business and professional career from a failure. Having dealt with extreme adversity in losing his eyesight, Mark’s approach to tackling adversity and building resilience is a tried-and-true method. In this talk, Mark educates you on the most effective approach to overcoming any adversity in the workplace, setting your business on a trajectory towards success.

make everyone count - the power of collaboration in the workplace

  • Keynote Presentation
  • For the last 20 years, Mark has dedicated his life to building one of the largest health clinics in Canada. One of the biggest lessons that became obvious over the years was that he needed a team, because doing everything himself was costing him and his business. But while teamwork is essential to the development and growth of your business ( you have more ideas, more action and more momentum), it only works if it’s the right team.

    In fact, did you know that highly connected teams have been shown to produce 21% more profitability for the businesses they work with? Building off of his experience as a business owner and a business coach, Mark has developed and perfected an adaptable framework for building the right team for your business. This topic gives business owners this framework and demonstrates how to implement it in their companies.

4 keys to an exceptional life

  • Keynote Presentation
  • When Mark was 9 years old, he was told that he would lose virtually all of his eyesight before he was 19 years old. Knowing that from then on out, life was going to look a lot different for him, Mark also knew that he couldn’t let this hold him back from living an exceptional life. This talk focuses on the core values for living an exceptional life.


Mark delivered an extremely motivational speech moments before our 1st International Blind Ice Hockey series game in Pittsburgh. The team came out pumped up and realizing, they were playing for something bigger than the game. Mark is the real deal! He is open and passionate for all of the staff and the players love his energy. He has an amazing ability to connect, inspire and create immediate change in people. I couldn’t recommend Mark more highly!
