Biography

Ben is a communications specialist, with a focus on human dynamics, facilitation and insight-driven storytelling. His core skill is getting to the heart of every brief and building a connection between audience and message. Ben is heartfelt about using communication to raise awareness, foster creativity, and promote lasting behavioural change.

With a background in user research and brand strategy, Ben combines his intuitive understanding of people with his highly developed writing, speaking and listening skills to draw rich insights that clarify the way forward. From there, he can write the brief, conceptualise the story, direct and produce the content then deliver it. He has a unique, yet interconnected set of skills, including acting, screen and copywriting, directing, facilitating and human-centred design. He’s done every personality test ever(!) because he loves learning about what makes him tick and what makes others tick too.

Ben is also a meditator. Having discovered it over 25 years ago, he’s made it a consistent practice ever since. It’s helped him navigate life’s inevitable challenges with a greater sense of clarity and calm. He credits meditation with his boundless curiosity, empathic observation and the willingness to dig a little deeper…that’s where you find the diamonds.

He came to learn of Search Inside Yourself in 2018 and instantly knew he had to be part of its ethos and mission. He’s also an emerging leader in the Path Retreats community and is currently studying a degree in counselling and psychotherapy.
