Ben Ramsden

Hello, my name is Ben and I have been involved with Potential Plus UK first as a child, then as a trustee and now as a workshop lead. My day job is as an officer in the British Army, in which I mentor officers and soldiers to develop their leadership, communication and analytical skills. In this role I have been fortunate enough to deploy across the globe, although now I work and live in London. I look forward to meeting you all.
