Ben was the keynote speaker at the January 2016 New Zealand Youth Leadership Summit. He delivered an excellent presentation about his personal journey with Unmask Palm Oil. The participants at the Summit ranged from age 13 to 17, from all over New Zealand. Ben successfully connected with them and inspired them to work towards their own social impact ideals, which was the main project outcome of the Summit. Ben also attended the participants' presentations on the final night of the Summit, and gave invaluable feedback to the groups as they presented some of the material they had worked on during the Summit. His relaxed humour and storytelling style was very well received by the participants. I would unreservedly recommend Ben for motivational and leadership speaking engagements, especially at schools and other youth development programmes.

Ben Dowdle is an insightful and creative presenter.

Through a relevant and practical presentation Ben connected with our college leaders and inspired and challenged them to not just achieve their potential but to become better leaders. The students were not just engaged but learnt to re-evaluate their leadership and effectiveness of their relationships with their teams and groups.
