Benjamin Raymond has refined the art of recreating a life filled with purpose and success in spite of one’s past circumstances. As a former captain of a basketball team from University of Minnesota, Raymond learned from the early days, the importance of hard work, leadership and resilience. Whether he is in his role as a business owner, a philanthropist, or a motivational speaker, Ben is determined to help people and organizations bridge the gap in order to reach the next level in business, relationship and life.
Raymond is the founder and CEO of the award winning company, Raymond Insurance. Founded in 2008, his company has gone on to break records held such as the amount of sales application & life policy sold in one month. His company is recognized as top 1% in insurance with Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT). Additionally, he has earned numerous awards including, Multiyear Ambassador Traveler for State Farm, Chairman’s Circle Agent, President’s Club Life Insurance, SVP Club and Exotic Traveler.
Compelled to do more for his community, Raymond has been proud to have worked with organizations such as NBA Basketball Without Borders, Habitat for Humanity, Urban League, YMCA, The Steve and Marjorie Harvey Foundation, The Boys and Girls Club, amongst many other foundations. In 2008, Ben started an internship program via his State Farm Agency, providing over 35 high school students an academic credit along with hands on experience and tools on how to succeed in the business world.
With a desire to do more, Raymond established his own nonprofit in 2010, Be the Ray Foundation, which has sought to encourage educational enrichment and provide outreach specifically targeting boys growing up without fathers in the household.
In addition to his list of community services, Raymond serves as the CEO and chairman of Raymond Enterprises; a company dedicated to providing crucial services to ethnically diverse and underserved urban communities through strategic alliances, consulting, and investments.
Raymond has gone on to author the top selling book, Playing the Game Without a Coach, detailing his personal life journey. Through his story, we see a life filled with courage, resilience, and ultimately, forgiveness.
In spite of the various obstacles Raymond was born to, he determined early on that he will not be held back from pursuing greatness. He has been featured on all Major National tv outlets, ranging from Steve Harvey Show and Dr. Phil to CNN and the Breakfast Club whereby he discusses his story of resilience and determination. Proving to be a man of many talents, you can also spot Raymond starring on a lead role for a national commercial with State Farm.
His ability to overcome daunting odds and pursue a life of service and greatness has richly encouraged others to do the same. When Raymond is not traveling across the country inspiring others towards greatness, you will find him at his home spending time with his family.

I have worked with many agencies to book guest speakers over the past 5 years. My experience with AAE has been the best. The website, search facilitation software, and speaker briefs were great. The follow-up and support from the sales agent and logistics manager were excellent. We will no doubt be in touch next year.
