Ben came to Business Oxygen with a Bachelor of Business (Marketing) and Masters of Business Administration under his belt, as well as an unique background in training candidates on systems, operations and regulations within the aviation industry. This experience makes him ideally suited to the role of business manager and to help clients realise their business’ potential.
Ben applies a high level of “outcome based thinking” to every client’s business process and operation to ensure that both short and long term goals, as well as client expectations are met. Ben is constantly innovating business processes to overcome many of the traps business operators fall into; this enables clients to concentrate on the business of achieving their goals.
Outside of the office Ben is as dedicated and driven to achieving personal goals as he is in the office. He successfully completed an Ironman competition in 2008, and this discipline can be seen in his work.
