I've spent 12+ years in change consulting focussed on leading people & teams through complex change. In under 10 years I grew my career from an analyst position to global director at a London-based data science firm. That brings with it real life experience that I couple with over a decade of research in neuroscience, psychology and personal development so I can share advice that's scientifically proven to be effective.
In a confidential setting, free of judgement, I help you to overcome your obstacles and, crucially, enjoy the path you're on by relating what we discuss to your core motivations, your values, interests and learning style.
Step 1: A free consultation. Discuss what you'd like to change and how I can help.
Step 2: Three sessions to start, designed to your preferences. You’ll experience the range of my support and achieve tangible results.
Step 3: A free session to review my recommendations for your ongoing support. I provide clear objectives with up front pricing and there's no further obligation beyond this point.
I commonly support clients remotely via Skype or Zoom.

It only took a few minutes of conversation to decide, Ben gets me. I interviewed a few other coaches and all of them are good and capable. But Ben and I had a unique connection that will pay dividends as I grow in new directions.Matthew
It's been great working with Ben. He is professional, organized, and it's clear he puts in the effort for each session and activity.Fatemeh
I am enjoying my work with Benjamin, and think it will yield great results.Kevin
Ben is a wonderful coach and our sessions were very insightful. We were able to recognize my key development areas whilst creating a sustainable action plan for long-term career objectives. I would definitely recommend Ben as a coach, for him being non-judgmental, insightful and comfortable to communicate with.Mitul, Senior Analyst
I found my coaching sessions with Ben extremely powerful. He's an amazing listener and he made me feel completely at ease. What I found particularly impressive was the way he helped me create several, powerful statements of intent that I'm still using months later to maintain the results I've achieved. I can recommend Ben highly. The heavy work will be on you, as it should be, but he will be your great support.Loredana, Pricing Consultant
I was astounded at how much ground we covered and I've walked away from each session with a structured line of thought ever since. Ben helped place me in the centre of my world to articulate my needs and my blockers. Crucially, he helped me see how changes in my perspective could resolve the obstacles I faced. I look forward to more sessions and I hope that many more people have the chance to work with Ben in this capacity.Gar Sin Chong
Ben's sessions offered me a safe space to reflect on my thoughts to make better decisions. I like that he does not impose his ideas or opinions. Instead, Ben asks strong, probing questions that get to the root of the issue and demonstrate his knowledge of his craft. It's a good investment in time and money to get yourself coached and mentored and I plan to schedule more sessions with Ben.Shivendra Tiwari
At a time of corporate restructuring, doubts on career progression and struggles in balancing life, working with Ben have enabled me to structure my thoughts, identify actual problems, and develop realistic solutions. I would definitely recommend Ben as a coach, as he has the ability to create a friendly atmosphere and establish personal connections, which makes the sessions enjoyable and productive.Tiffany, Analyst
Ben was born to do this! Extremely patient, highly articulate with a deep understanding of the subject. I found Ben's coaching session to be extremely helpful as it is very unique. The sessions helped me realize what I fundamentally wanted out of myself. It shut out my outside bias and helped me decode an inner voice I found deep within me. I am sure sessions like these have the potential to fast track one's development. And since I am now more in tune with my inner voice, I feel more happy and energised to work on my goals.Rahul, Lead Analyst
Having never been coached before, I was nervous as I didn't know what to expect. So I was pleasantly surprised when I walked out my first coaching session feeling empowered, motivated and clear-headed. Before my first session, I was aware of my tendency to over-complicate issues and develop a negative mind-set. This was preventing me from fulfilling my potential and taking myself out my comfort zone. My sessions with Ben allowed me to work through my self-imposed limits and re-frame my thoughts to focus on making smaller changes and executing better. Working with Ben helped me to convert the energy I spent into over thinking when planning and instead develop healthy habits that stick. Ben was pivotal in asking key questions which allowed me to unpack and come to the conclusion that I needed to be kinder to myself. Im grateful for Bens framework which was delivered in a professional, yet warm and supportive manner and I would definitely work with Ben again and would recommend for anyone looking to come to their own conclusions and find a solution!Sumaya, HR Manager
I found Ben impressive in his approach and preparation. He enabled me to go deeper into the stated problem with sharp questions and guidance, finding a solution. I found the interaction easy, professional and helpful. I had setup subsequent follow ups. Ben has my recommendation as a strong coach and a trustworthy person who brings the art of coaching and self discovery.Jagadeesh, Business Development Director
I found the coaching sessions with Ben to be incredibly useful. Ben's coaching style is great, some key areas which I found worked well for me are: Environment: I felt comfortable - it was a safe place with no judgement. Questioning technique: Ben is able to balance bringing you back to the subject of focus when you drift too far with letting you wonder to arrive in a place where you're uncovering the real problem at hand. Actionable output: Creates and sends you relevant and targeted notes from the session so you can maintain focus. Coaching from Ben was a real catalyst for me to make some serious and positive changes in my personal life. I'd been struggling to quit smoking, be active and healthy for some time. After the sessions with Ben I gained clarity over what I wanted, why I wanted it and was able to put an achievable plan in place to actually deliver it. As of writing this I'm 7 weeks smoke free and discovered a new hobby to keep me active that I'm passionate about.Dave, Consultant
