Ben has worked with hundreds of Club and Course Managers and thousands of their staff across Australia, New Zealand, Canada and North America and used that knowledge and experience to build The Toolbox – a dedicated software platform and web APP for managing golf industry compliance requirements across the globe. His vision is to create physically and psychologically safer work environments for teams across the golf industry and provide a meaningful and sustainable solution.

Ben appears regularly on industry podcasts, in state and national turf association magazines and has spoken at golf industry events in Australia, New Zealand, Asia and the United States. He has spent his career building and leading teams and holds a Master’s Degree in Business Leadership.

The hardcopy and audiobook is available via The Toolbox Team website. 100% of the profit from the sale of People First is donated to charity.
