Ben has that rare ability to listen intently, absorb complex information, ask the hard questions and repeat it back in a far easier to understand way. He is personable, reliable and his work is of the highest quality.

Mark Heathcote, CEO, Swimming NSW
Ben is an innovator and change agent who has the ability to work with and lead others to cut through complexity to achieve progress, whilst always ensuring a sustainable legacy of significant undertakings.
Matthew Kennedy, Chief Sport Performance, Swimming Australia
Working with Ben was an outstanding experience. While my Managers were very knowledgeable and worked well together, Ben patiently showed us how to become a more cohesive leadership team ready to help our people as we commenced a major project resulting in a period of significant change for our business. By drawing on his many years of experience Ben was able to assist us to work together to identify potential barriers to success and then develop plans to see that these barriers were managed.
With Ben’s assistance, the project to date has remained on track, on budget and its key milestones have been met. I found working with Ben energising and would highly recommend him to any business that is looking for innovative ways to move forward.
Mark O’Neill, General Manager, Coal Services Health
Ben has managed our IT group while we have found a new Head of IT. Ben quickly came to grips with what was required and to put it into action.
Good to have a consultant who can successfully step into a management position and quickly win the confidence of his team and maintain delivery of service to our internal customers.

Andrew Black, Director, Shirlaws Corporate
I enjoyed my time working with Ben immensely. He continuously exceeded my expectations with his cut through questions of the Board, and complete execution of some very tough tasks at times.
Wayne Condon, Chairman, Shirlaws Corporate
Dedicated, professional, passionate, effective – all these describe Ben’s commitment to his work. He has been a rock in numerous stormy seas and an asset to the Better Health Project. Ben’s role was more than a change manager, he was a mentor, negotiator and councillor and has opened eyes to the criticality of change in an organisation and the ability to manage the change respectfully for all stakeholders.
Anette De Bruyn, Better Health Project Manager, Coal Services Health
My experience using the system was excellent. It saved me countless hours.
