Ben Morton – Founder

As a former Captain in the British Army, I have led people in life or death situations. My experience has taught me that leadership is both a great privilege and a great responsibility. Fundamentally, I believe that leadership is less about the tools and models and more about understanding what it truly means to be a leader.

For the past 10 years, I’ve had the privilege of working with senior leaders to help them nurture their teams to great success. I have a track record of helping CEOs turn around dysfunctional teams they have inherited and moving executive teams from good to great.

When off-duty, I can be found cycling the glorious countryside around Berkhamsted, in training for challenges such completing all 3,460Kms of the Tour de France for charity or spending quality time with my wife and daughter.

Amanda Scurr – Chief Admin Officer

There is a saying in the Army that administration is “Not Officer’s Business”. I’m not sure I agree with that (and I’ll leave you to work at the acronym) but what I do know is that we wouldn’t be able to serve our clients to the standard that we do without Amanda. She leads the battle against mediocrity and ensures that we’re never scuppered by a lack of attention to detail.

When she’s not busy crossing the t’s and dotting the i’s, Amanda can be found walking the Northumberland Coast with her dogs.

Chief Marketing Officers

Sublime Marketing Design

Kelly Wilson

We like to think of Kelly as our Brand Ninja! Her job is to ensure that everything we do is consistent with our core beliefs and brand values… if she’s not happy with something, we won’t release it into the world. But more importantly than that, it’s Kelly job to ensure that good enough, is never enough.

When she’s not working hard to uphold the exceptionally high standards we set ourselves, she can be found in her garden talking to her beloved roses or entertaining her two young daughters.

Richard Hillier

We’d love it if all our work came as a result of people beating a path to our door, but the truth is we have to get out there and find like-minded individuals and businesses who we can help. Richard heads up our campaigns to find amazing new clients who believe what we believe and who are hungry to take their performance to an entirely new level.

When he’s not out on reconnaissance missions, Richard can be found hanging out with his twin daughters and organising Monty Python World Record attempts.

Richard and Kelly run Sublime Marketing Design based in Berkhamsted. We are proud to have Sublime supporting our marketing as one of our long-term business partners.

The Product Room

Neil McKensie

Neil is our Chief Design Officer and responsible for the visual element of all that we do.

One of Neil's major strengths is the fact that he ‘gets’ learning, he ‘gets’ great design and he ‘get’ us. But most importantly he understand our clients and is incredibly skilled at turning our vision into a reality. Working with Neil is the living embodiment of the famous quote from George S. Patton; "Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity."

When he's not working you’re most likely to find Neil enjoying an active social life with his girlfriend, family and friends, watching Formula One or honing his photography skills.

Ross Aitken

Ross is the Founder, Managing Director and creative driving force at the heart of The Product Room.

As a business, they share our belief that great training materials will never make up for a poorly designed programme or conference, but they can transform a programme from good to great. It's for this reason that we wouldn't trust our brand, or yours, with anyone else.

When he's not helping us take all that we do to the next level, Ross can be found spending fun time with his young family, helping coach at a local junior football club and playing the odd game of badminton.

Ross and Neil run the The Product Room based in Newcastle. They have been designing stand-out materials, models and graphics for us for many years and we're proud to have them as another of our long term partners. We consider The Product Room to be the Royal Marine Commandos of the design world!
