In my short life, I’ve had the privilege of learning from many difficult, strange, and often wonderful experiences. I’m calibrated to be comfortable with ambiguity and chaos as a result, and, from what I gather, that means it’s useful to have me in your corner when the world is ending and everything’s on fire.
Among many other tools, I’m known to leverage Wardley Mapping, a powerful technique for making sense of context, creating focused action, and unleashing the potential of the organization. Teaching others the method
I work with people one-on-one through deep, heartfelt conversations focused on what matters, what’s truly possible, and how to overcome the obstacles currently in the way. The end result is always a shift from ambiguity towards clarity and forward movement.
I have helped founders, executives, managers, and teams make significant breakthroughs in the areas of their businesses and leadership responsibilities that matter most to them.
Working with Ben was unlike any consultant I’ve ever worked with before. He knows technology, but doesn’t get distracted by bells and whistles. He knows strategy, but doesn’t get lost dreaming up big visions with no connection to reality. He has empathy for people, but doesn’t allow any one person’s agenda to dominate the discussion. He’s like a mediator between the dozens of competing interests, concerns, and goals in a complex project, while also pushing it forward toward concrete results. It’s difficult to describe exactly what Ben does, because he covers so many bases. But when he’s around things go more smoothly and major mistakes that could derail the team simply don’t happen.
Ben is an asset to any team that has the fortune to work with him. First and foremost, Ben has a deep sense of compassion, empathy, and integrity that pervades everything he does. But he is not merely another person with a kind and loving heart: he wields a deep power with a precise and effective set of skills. Ben has an intimidatingly large quantity of tools and mental models available at his disposal, which he knows when and how to deploy. He’s the first person I think of when I find tricky problems or new opportunities, and I wouldn’t want to start a company, run a non-profit, or embark on accomplishing a major vision without Ben’s support.
If you’ve been referred to me, or perhaps are just curious about what it’s like to work with me, please feel welcome to say hello (tell me who you are, what you do, and your current challenge).
You can also find me on Twitter if that’s more your thing.
All the best,
