I speak nationally on a variety of topics, including gay culture, youth culture, addiction, sex and relationship addiction, gender and masculinity, fraternity culture, AIDS and the Down Low, magazine and nonfiction writing, and immersion journalism. I’ve been a guest speaker at more than a dozen universities and high schools, including Harvard University, Rhodes College, Northwestern University, Stetson University, the University of Oregon, the University of Toledo, Boston College, and Tulane.
I’ve also appeared on many television and radio programs, including the Today Show, The Early Show, Good Morning America, Anderson Cooper 360, The O’Reilly Factor, and NPR’s Talk of the Nation and Here & Now.
“Benoit was a hit at our annual conference. He is an amazing speaker with a deep and nuanced understanding of addiction, particularly as it relates to high-school and college culture. He helped the teachers and educators at our conference better understand addictions that don’t always get talked about–including pornography and sex addiction.”
– Andrew Finch, co-founder, Association of Recovery Schools.
“Benoit’s presentation of his compelling writing and intriguing subject matter connected immediately with his audience, and whether he was offering information, challenging beliefs, or telling a story, he had his audience fully engaged for his entire reading and Q&A.”
–Andy Dehnart, English Professor, Stetson University
“Benoit is a thoroughly engaging speaker who connects with the audience through his passionate, his wit, and his intelligence. He delivered an unforgettable lecture.”
– Lauren Kessler, director of graduate program in Literary Nonfiction, the University of Oregon.
