Ben combined his passion and experience in education with the wonderful gift of creativity through LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® to help us as a leadership team learn more about ourselves and our team.
We were so impressed with the way that Ben enabled a process where playing and learning went hand in hand in ways that were fun, surprising and intriguing. He brings a deep understanding of learning processes that gave confidence to the group to journey with the experience of LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY®
“Ben listened carefully to brief and evolved the session from the responses given by the Principals, skilfully weaving in educational pedagogy ad examples of how they might take the LSP strategies back to their academies. This was a professional development session that was practical, relevant, relatable and enjoyable and certainly got everyone talking!”
“We were so grateful for the work Ben did with us at our Minster Learning Community. It was the second time we’d had them together and the creative way he led transformed the time was spot on. Everyone went away with really key insights to develop their work and expand their thinking.”
“Our time with Ben was thought provoking and encouraging as he helped us reflect. How Ben leads a reflective session is so natural, quickly putting people at ease, and unthreateningly challenges and encourages you to go a layer deeper in your thinking. I definitely recommend Idea Alchemy and Ben to any organisation who want to invest in their team both as individuals and collectively”
“Following a transformation programme, we needed to bring the team together. Ben delivered a team building day utilising LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY®, moving from how we see ourselves, exploring how others see us, how the team function and how we want to move forward as a team. A brilliantly insightful day, delivered in an open and safe environment. Feedback from a member of the team “best team building day I have ever been on.”
“It was amazing how quickly people engaged with the session and started to think creatively and outside the box, even those people whose natural style is very ‘matter of fact’ and practical. The outcomes amazed us all and we all loved the duck! We all learned a lot about one another, and the day resulted in not only a lot of enjoyment, but also an inspiring outcome with meaning for everyone.”
“The sessions were thoughtfully planned and fitted our brief perfectly.Ben’s expertise and enthusiasm shone through in his delivery; an excellent role model for our undergraduate and postgraduate students who are training to be primary teachers. It was a privilege to share Ben’s insight and knowledge, through practical activities and discussion.”
