Testimonials

Ben has a wealth of knowledge which he delivers with passion and enthusiasm driving his teams to success. He can communicate at any level and in any arena ensuring the audience understand the issue and taking time to explain.
— Kate Boswell, Senior Project Manager at M-Hance
Totally unflappable, Ben succeeded where others had previously failed by listening to clients, fully understanding their requirements, challenging constructively where appropriate and then working collaboratively with them to design and implement effective solutions.
— Mark Stock, Programme Lead at Paternoster Consulting
I worked with Ben on an ambitious, multi-phase Dynamics implementation, and as with all projects, it had its many challenges, but Ben always handled everything professionally and with minimal fuss. Ben quickly grasped how the business operated, and applied this knowledge effectively.
— Ka-Wai Walton, Business Analyst at The Co-operative
