Ben Austin appeared in my life one day and it was as if we had known each other for years. His sheer enthusiasm for everything was overwhelming from the outset and that is what I liked the most about him. I deal with hundreds of Business Angels, Investors and Funders in my business and I can assure you that Ben stands out in the crowd. I can and do highly recommend Ben to any company or individual who is looking for a Business Consultant. He is great to work with; very professional and offers a fantastic level of personal customer service.
Endorsements. They’re a rather peculiar, funny necessity in life aren’t they? A reputation is never confirmed until the masses speak. So, I went ahead and dug up some old letters, messages and emails, and for a bit more variety, I even went ahead and asked whether a few people would write something fresh on me, no holds-barred, just to give it to me straight. There were no envelopes stuffed with cash, but I did threaten expulsion from my Christmas card list if anyone mentioned anything about Vegas!

I’ve never met someone from the future before, but I now think I have. Ben is obviously from a distant far beyond place and tries his best to hide it. But his insight, foresight and future brand theories give him away. He is a ball of energy that melts rock. Ben is armouring me with cutting edge personal brand strategies, upgrading me from successful practitioner in my field to a global industry star. His belief in what I am gives me confidence in my road map. His motivation and mentoring makes me chase the big dream and he’s laid down the tracks where I can get there fast. Placing causes at the core of the business/consumer world to bring balance in the way we connect with the everyday planet. We’re made of Future!
Robotics Innovator, early-stage inventor and rising Arab star.
Ben has been the inspirational driver of the robotics company we’ve just started in Egypt. I had all sorts of ideas as to what I could achieve and where I could take my expertise and inventions, and Ben has come in and applied a very sharp and realistic focus and discipline to what the business will initially start as to best take advantage here in the Arab world. He utterly compelled me with his vision of a personal brand and how that would apply with me. It’s a distinctive approach and so far with early testing, the ballsy, media-driven approach has been very widely received. We do seem to be positioned with the killer edge and I am very much looking forward to seeing the fruits in distance of our brilliant early progress.

Ben has amazing energy about him. He is very personable, down to earth and talking to him feels like you have known him for ages. He was a fantastic mentor and speaker at The Startup Crowd’s Build Camp event and delivered such informative sessions to our 20 campers. He is packed full of knowledge, and not that learned knowledge you get from text books. Ben brings real hands on experience in business and is very willing to share and help where he can. If you have a chance, definitely have a chat with Mr Austin, he’ll leave you feeling inspired!
