Oh guys – Ben was AMAZING. Honestly, he absolutely made the event and I have had some great feedback from people to say how much they enjoyed the event! He was so engaging and spent time afterwards chatting to everyone and even helped carry a box downstairs. It was just wonderful to spend time with such an amazing human. Thanks so much for your help on this.
