Tell us a little bit more Ben

“Outside my professional academic persona I am a rock god… “in my dreams” – and it was a dream until I realised the life of an L&D practitioner was far more exciting, stable, better paid…..

I have played bass guitar for more than 20 years – they say it takes 10 years to become an expert… well I’m still trying.

I played in a band called D.C.K which was played on Radio 1 and have gigged all around the UK. More recently I joined an Orchestra playing double bass. I love anything that has a groove and especially metal.

Other than that I have a son called Leo and married to Joanne and currently have two Maine Coons.”
