Easy to work with

I invited Ben to speak at the SDI annual conference and he was enthusiastic, professional and easy to work with right from the beginning. Ben really got stuck in by sharing blogs and social media posts about his session prior to the conference. I think culture hits the nail on the head for anyone who works in a team, across all industries. Thanks Ben it was great meeting you and I would love to work with you again in the future.

A masterpiece

A masterpiece, delivered with aplomb. Ben delivered some training for one of my clients recently. I had no reservations at all as Ben is extremely professional and diligent. He had a great rapport with the delegates and his communication skills are second to none. Thanks Ben, I look forward to working with you in the future.

Worth his weight in gold

Every step of the way I was blown away by his belief in his ideas, by his philosophy of culture and leadership. As Ben spoke of the influence of hospitality and the power it has held throughout our country’s history, it brought to mind those who spoke of the birth places of revolution and our bars and coffee shops have been that. I felt pride, our tribe felt pride, and that is what makes him a great speaker, a man who can inspire passion and pride is worth his weight in gold. If you are offered the opportunity to book Ben to speak for you or organisation, then please, do it and thank me later in the same way I thank Ben for sharing his passion with us and our tribe.

What Benjamin can do is magic

What Benjamin can do for you in such a short space of time is astonishing. I saw Ben speak at an event and was impressed with the quality of his content and delivery. I then had a one-to-one session where he was able to help me articulate my mission, vision and values in a very short space of time. What Benjamin can do is magic! I highly recommend him

Would 100% recommend

Ben recently spoke at a Conference we ran and I have to say my colleagues and I were very impressed with his professionalism and ability to go above and beyond what was asked. He created promotional videos for us to help create engagement and was always on hand to add value. I would 100% recommend booking Ben as a speaker!

Valuable & relevant content

Ben made himself super-relevant for our audience. He listened to what we needed ahead of time, in terms of topic focus and key messages, and then incorporated our direction and our members challenges into the positioning of his material as the session progressed. Ben provided very valuable and relevant content during our event, and some great takeaways too. I would recommend him to anyone looking to bring focus and change in the areas of culture, team togetherness and overall belonging. On a personal note, Ben is a very likeable guy, and had some fantastic stories to tell from his past experiences that were really great to hear about - which added that extra dimension that you always hope for when engaging a speaker.

He's an absolute expert

Ben has done nothing but impress me from the moment I met him. Not only does he know his stuff, he's an absolute expert at what he does and working with him has transformed my business and came just at the right as our team continues to expand. I highly recommend Ben to anyone looking at understanding their values and creating the culture within their business enabling the business to run effectively even when they are to present in the business.

An absolute must for business owners

I recently attended Ben's workshop, Creating a Culture to Scale up. Absolutely loved it. The most productive and inspiring morning I've had in a long time. The content was thought provoking but not overwhelming, the delivery was challenging but never felt unobtainable. An absolute must for all business owners and managers.

Super helpful process

Ben has really helped our team to understand themselves and each other. Super-helpful structure, process and tools, and Ben is an immensely likeable, knowledgeable and helpful guy. We’ll be doing a lot more with him, both internally at Ninety, and beyond with our clients where we want to help build effective insurance innovation teams.

Ideas out of our head.

To get the culture of your business right from day one is vital. Sounds obvious but until you sit down with Ben and discuss your vision, values and culture, you really won't realise how necessary it is. With Ben's help we have managed to get all our ideas out of our head (even the common sense ones), onto paper and to produce a document (playbook) that we can share with the whole organisation. What better way to make sure we are all onboard and working towards a shared goal.

Entertaining and informative

Ben possesses a unique combination of relentless curiosity and insatiable desire to make things workable and practical. The result is that The Culture Guy is full of practically applicable novelty! This makes the workshops that Ben runs entertaining and informative. I highly recommend that you invite Ben to have a look at your organisational culture. As a solo entrepreneur, he has shaped the way I think about growth and my approach to working with anyone!

I highly recommend

I have read the book and attended a one day workshop - Ben is simply a genius at this subject! For my own business, as is probable for most, I know what I wanted to say but was `lost for words`! Ben helped me put together a powerful mission statement, create a vision and calculate clear values. I highly recommend businesses needing help developing their ideas into a clear and meaningful reality engage with The Culture Guy. Thanks Ben.
