Hi there, I’m Ben.

I love getting stuck in with qualitative audience research such as depth interviews, anthropology, etc. I really enjoy evaluating arts projects and change initiatives. I’m based at the University of Leeds so am particularly keen to work with arts organisations based in the north of England.

I love working with clients who are honest and open to change with an audience focused approach to the arts.

I’ve worked with West Yorkshire Playhouse, Opera North, Yorkshire Dance, Melbourne Theatre Company and Leeds City Council (Light Night evaluation).

In the future, I would love to do more evaluation of change management initiatives.

Nice things my clients have said about me include – “I really appreciate all you have done on this especially in the challenging situation we found ourselves in. Big thanks!” (Sheena Wrigley, Chief Executive, West Yorkshire Playhouse)

My specialist areas include qualitative audience research, change management and cultural leadership.
