Organisations hire Ben to upgrade their design skills and design culture. Recently he’s been writing about voice interfaces and speaking on the subject with audiences across Europe.

Away from the office

Ben enjoys running, making music, and hacking together new inventions with the Raspberry Pi. He grew up in the world of motorsport but has left it behind, despite having once beaten Jensen Button (true). P.S. Sauer rhymes with power, as in Jack Bauer.
