Ben Simpson trained originally as an engineer, and through his corporate life he specialised in project management. A secondment to a consultancy delivering an organisational effectiveness intervention proved to mark a turning point; solving problems and overcoming challenges within an organisational context has been at the centre of his professional world ever since.
He is a qualified coach (EMCC senior practitioner) and has an MBA from Bath School of Management. His dissertation was focused on the translation of lean and other continual improvement methodologies from manufacturing into service environments and was awarded a distinction. In addition to his professional and consulting experience, Ben has also served as a non-executive, being a trustee of Julian House, a regional charity in the UK supporting homeless and socially disadvantaged people.
Ben is based in Bath, UK. He is also a founder of TCC, The Crest Community, which specialises in working with local agencies and Police to develop and implement new systems for service delivery, with the purpose of reducing crime.
