Ben works as a Designer within the Overlap Associates team. His previous work focused on providing services that enhanced well being and offered positive client experiences, in the sport programming and events industry. The events world demands strong project management and diligent execution. As a result, Ben emerged with a knack for shaping pragmatic and actionable plans that are empathetic to user needs. Ben combines this pragmatism with strong business acumen and a growing human-centred design skillset to support teams when identifying root problems and shaping user-focused solutions. Systems thinking, sustainability, social impact business, and mindfulness are themes that continually energize Ben and bring meaning to the work he does.
