  • I've known Ben since 2001. Technically, he's the type of guy who who you can rely on to know how something works and whether it's the right solution to follow. Leaders listen to him. Creatively, he has enough passion and nouse to start a revolution and change the world for the better. Cultures have changed because he's been part of it. Personally, I trust him unequivocally. He inspires me to be a better person. Hire him!

  • Having met Ben in a previous role at Newcastle College, I was impressed by his customer focus. As someone in a technical role, his focus on making things better for the end user improved various systems and products in that role. I was lucky enough to then spend time working closely with Ben developing Twistan. His technical expertise, business acumen and dedication to improvement are what sets Ben apart from others and it was a pleasure to work with him.

  • Choosing only 3 top attributes for Ben is very difficult. I would state that Ben achieves great results, works well in any team. His ability to communicate expertise is superb. Working well to help us define a brief he then met that brief with results that exceeded expectations.

  • I worked with Ben on the development of an online regional skills portal. Ben was asked to support the project group in an advisory capacity, to lend his technical knowledge and understanding of Higher Level Skills Providers in the North East. Ben is extremely knowledgeable but most importantly, he can relate technical solutions to individuals who don't come from a technical background. Highly recommended!

  • Ben is a pleasure to work with and had a real impact at NCG. He is not only excellent technically but also someone who is highly creative and forward-thinking. Combined with the ability to develop intimate customer understanding and apply this to innovative developments that deliver real outcomes, Ben will be an asset to any business. I would not hesitate to recommend him.
