“Ben delivered a keynote speech for us that really gripped our audience and struck a chord with them - despite being from a diverse range of businesses. He hit on vital themes, and had everyone engaged. We had 100% positive feedback with many saying Ben's talk was a real highlight of the day and a session they loved.“

Ed Lawson, Director & Founder - Intent Group

My aim with keynote speaking is to deliver a truly engaging and inspiring talk, packed with personal experience and points of reflection that leave my audiences with clear actions to take away and apply.

I draw from personal leadership experience gained from operating on the battlefield, in the boardroom and from over ten years experience coaching and mentoring senior leaders whilst studying the science of learning and development.

The Mission: Leadership Lifting the Mask keynote

In this bold keynote I focus on the uncomfortable truth that leaders must face into to unlock their full leadership potential. We all harbour certain villainous leadership characteristics alongside the tendency to slip into one of several victim modes. Which are you? And how do you shift from being the victim or the villain to the hero?

Lifting the Mask on Leadership

How to strip out the complexities of leadership and move away from a reliance on tools and models. Getting back to the core principles of leadership and being the best, most authentic version of ourselves as leaders.

The Three Secrets of Trust...

…that create high performing teams and will lead people to do incredible things for each other and for their leaders. In this keynote I will encourage you to reflect on the strength of the relationships you have with those that you lead. Do you have relationships that are strong enough to enable you to make big requests of your team, as I had to in Iraq in 2003?

“Ben is instantly credible and engaging. He has that rare ability to draw on real life experiences, talk about them in clear, simple language, devoid of jargon, buzzwords and platitudes, and relate them to the world of business and indeed the bigger world beyond. Well worth listening to, a leader to follow for sure.“
