Ben is an expert in the science of resilience, social support, communication, and team-building. He helps clients move beyond buzzwords and quick fixes by focusing on the latest evidence and research-informed strategies. Ben’s programs are designed to support lasting behaviour change, promote physical and mental wellbeing, and create cohesive and supportive teams. He is committed to delivering tangible results - Ben's workshops are honest, interactive, and thought-provoking.
Ben is driven by a passion to help people lead happy, healthy, and productive lives – improving physical and mental health, connecting more closely with others, maximising our own and others’ productivity, and better managing stress at work and home. He promotes a whole-of-workplace commitment to staff wellness. Noting that no one achieves lasting change in just one day, Ben also offers 'booster sessions' and additional guidance to help embed behaviours for the long-term.
