“I just wanted to let you know Ben was a huge hit yesterday and was a real pleasure to have! He genuinely is a lovely guy and even managed to have a few gins with us after his talk – I am sure he was parched answering all of the questions he had from our audience, which is really great as it means our guys were clearly engaged. We all loved him and he is absolutely hilarious, so thank you for introducing us. Thank you again for all of your efforts – great team!” - 4Secure
