“Ben Sands is an excellent speaker and facilitator whom we recommend highly to any other organization looking to motivate and empower their employees to address key challenges facing their business.”

MJ O’LearySVP Human Resources, John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

“Ben Sands is a terrific speaker and facilitator whom I recommend without reservation to senior executives seeking to inspire creativity, accountability and courage across their teams. My senior leadership team and I brought Ben in to Morgan Stanley’s Compliance Department to lead a session, which we titled “Catalyzing Creativity”. The population for this program was 600 employees at all levels of the organization, across the globe, who cover all of Morgan Stanley’s various businesses. Ben began developing the program by interviewing professionals from across the organization to identify the patterns of performance and best practice driving creative outcomes today. He then effectively combined that interview data with global best practices to create an engaging presentation that painted a clear and compelling picture of what the most creative compliance professionals do - more of, less of, and differently - to drive better decision-making and better outcomes. Importantly, Ben remained focused on the needs of my team - challenging them throughout the session with specific questions and exercises designed to help them better understand and embed the concepts. I recommend Ben highly and will be happy to respond to any inquiries about him.”

Stuart BreslowChief Compliance Officer & Managing Director, Morgan Stanley
