Testimonials for Ben Roberts-Smith

The theme of our conference was Inspire to Lead. This theme encompassed all facets of leadership and team based achievement.
In Ben’s presentation he encapsulated the best qualities of an individual working under extreme duress in a team dependent environment. A team’s performance is grounded in its ability to work towards a goal with each member following a set plan and adapting to changes, as they occur to achieve the desired result.
Ben’s personal story is at once both inspiring and an affirmation of what can be done if a team is led well, there is a good plan in place and talented individuals rise to the challenges they face.  We are extremely grateful for Ben’s service and the professionalism and heartfelt retelling of his story.  As a company Electrolux wishes Ben all the best in whatever endeavor undertakes in his future life. Ben’s presentation was a highlight of our conference and has inspired us to strive to achieve all we can in the coming years.
