Inspiring keynote speaker

Ben brings decades of experience speaking and consulting with companies like Vodafone, BP and Twinings. He was one of the first people to specialise in managing brand and culture through language, way back when it was just emerging as a discipline.

Ben's since helped Google train advertisers in digital, Norwich Union become Aviva in 28 countries, Powergen rebrand to E.ON and Ronseal to know 'what' to say on the tin.

It's this hands-on experience that makes his keynotes inspiring and engaging, yet practical.

Ben's a Fellow of the Professional Speaking Association.

Virtual keynotes

Ben's presented by video since Skype launched in 2003. His clients frequently say "wow" when he appears on screen, asking how he achieved his TV-quality video.
