Theresa Behenna is an award winning motivational speaker, performance expert and an acclaimed international piano entertainer who inspires people to overcome fear and take risks to reach the next level of professional and personal success.
Laid off from an office job in her native country Australia, Theresa decided to pursue her dream to perform and began playing piano anywhere that would hire her, defying all odds to make a living in music especially without vocals (they paid her NOT to sing). She single handedly marketed herself to tour the world on a piano bench armed with a positive attitude, a passion for performance and thirty-one evening dresses eventually appearing before celebrities such as Andrew Lloyd Webber, ‘James Bond’, Princess Grace & Sir Elton John.
Theresa Behenna migrated to Texas in the 80’s where she quickly became one of the most popular entertainers in Houston and in 2006 the city celebrated when she won the audition for Coca Cola to perform at the Winter Olympics in Italy.
Since 1998 Theresa has been speaking at events across the USA using mastery of the piano as parallel principles for individual & organizational success sharing the platform with the likes of John Maxwell, Carol Channing and Chris Gardner (Pursuit of Happyness). With a fresh, funny and unique approach to serious issues, Theresa's presentations have resulted in a wide range of clients from professional associations to corporate giants like EXXON MOBIL, BP & LOCKHEED MARTIN.
As a professional member of the National Speakers Association, Theresa won the John Wolfe Award for speaking excellence in 2007 and served on the board for several years. She is the sole artist on the popular CD "Songs for Friends" with a second album to be released.
Theresa Behenna resides in Houston where she has yet to sound like a native Texan.
