Ben Williams's Biography
The world of work has changed forever. And so too has the way in which people are approaching their careers. The focus on purpose, fulfilment and meaning has replaced salaries and rapid career progression. And such a change requires a whole new approach to how companies lead, engage, and retain their talent. This is where Ben now devotes his efforts, helping business leaders and organisations embrace the future of work, by better understanding their employees.
Ben Williams speaks about how to engage people at work, especially focusing on the millennials and generation-z, helping managers and leaders better understand their people on a more personal level. Ben speaks about how to inspire and build courage in others, to drive engagement and accountability throughout an organisation.
Now a tech entrepreneur specialising in building and developing tech products for the future of work, Ben lends his time to helping companies boost employee engagement. He gets his leadership experience and qualities from his previous leadership coaching and development career, working closely with senior executives in top businesses and banks, professional sports, the England football team, and Gareth Southgate, and as an Igniter on Simon Sinek’s coaching platform.
Before coaching and tech, Ben spent ten years as a Royal Marines Commando and is the author of the Penguin Business title, Commando Mindset. Ben also speaks about mental health in the workplace, openly sharing his experiences of drug abuse and suicide before his time in the marines, and is a big advocate of the importance of being open about well-being, mental health, and emotions, inspiring others to do the same.
A trusted voice by Steven Bartlett on the Diary of a CEO, regular podcast guest, and contributor to national publications, Ben prides himself on delivering highly engaging, immersive and inspiring talks that will have your people gripped from start to finish.
