"Ben spoke during our Sales Excellence Awards dinner at our inaugural global sales and marketing conference. He held 518 people in the palm of his hand as we heard about the astonishing training, discipline and fantastic team work required to win a coveted gold medal. Ben tailored his content to fit perfectly into our theme of Think. Innovate. Act. Over a week down the track sales and marketing team members across the world are still chatting about how they can make our boat go faster." - EMAP

"I was really impressed that Ben took the time before the session to understand our business and was therefore able to relate his experiences on his journey to a gold medal in Sydney to the daily challenges we face in growing our business and keeping the team focused and motivated.I wanted my team to leave the session believing that each small improvement they make or effect in others makes IMGROUP a better place to work and ultimately a more successful company. Ben delivered this message flawlessly. He is a highly inspirational speaker and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a speaker to motivate their team." - IMGROUP
