"The Regatta group have been working with Graham for the past 5 years or so, helping us to build high performing teams, along with 1-2-1 coaching for some of our senior leadership team which has really had a positive impact on the business. The Successfactory is an amazing venue and the team building events have been fun packed, and always linked to our required learning outcomes. The outdoor team activities can be tailored for any ability to make sure everyone is included which is obviously important, oh and the food is fantastic too. Graham’s style of delivery is just what we need here at Regatta, with a relaxed engaging style which makes people feel at their ease and ready to learn, as well as being challenging at the same time.

"Gary doesn't push a professional HR ego in your face, despite his significant experience. He is just himself. And I think this comes across when he stands up and speaks at events. I will never forget the shock, surprise and warmth in the room when he first spoke at CIPD NAP, delivering his poetic insights into the world of work. I was completely blown away, as was the whole of the rest of the audience. But none of that comes close to the most remarkable thing about Gary. That is that he not only talks about the human side of work - he lives it. He knows what's important to him, and how he wants to live his life and he is prepared to make bold and brave choices. He is, and should be, an inspiration to us all."

"In 2016, I attended Europe’s first employee experience conference in London, which Ben chaired and co-designed; it was the best HR event I have ever attended. Ben is inspiring like-minded individuals across the globe to work together to develop their thinking about the employee experience and to share experiences of making this work – this is shaping the way we deliver the whole experience of work in the future. Working with Ben has convinced me that we are on the cusp of big changes in the way we deliver this experience for our employees – this is not just for HR to deliver but for leaders across the business. ​"
