"Ben has worked closely with the Samsung New Zealand team on a number of occasions – our latest being the Home Smart Home project where he showcased our amazing appliances on TVNZ Breakfast, whipping up whitebait for the nation, and preparing a wonderful celebration dinner for some lucky prize-winners in conjunction with the Herald on Sunday. Ben is always professional, on message and a pleasure to work with. Like Samsung, Ben believes that a premium experience comes down to designing the moment.: Mike Cornwell, Head of Marketing, Samsung
