ABOUT ME

Hi I’m Ben, welcome to my site.


I have lived and worked with digital technology my whole life, always fascinated by its impact on society and its unique ability to change lives.  I have worked through two massive waves of digital innovation, the dotcom era and the unstoppable rise of mobile. I’m now immersed and focused on the next important digital wave - the amazing opportunities of Data, Cloud and AI 


I'm privileged to have worked with some of the world’s greatest companies, helping them to build customer focused digital strategies in a disruptive world.  Digital and data transformation is an essential strategy for any modern business, particularly in a post Covid world. My passion is to help business connect and simplify digital technology so that it works for everyone.


On this site you will find my latest thinking and ways I might be able to help you. I'm continuously thinking about digital ecosystems and how data & tech can be used to improve the status quo.  What is essential? What provides a competitive advantage? What is noise and distraction?
If this sounds interesting, then let's have a chat.
