Ben Miller — Cognitive Diversity

Ben Miller

Balance · Connection · Diversity

Ben, a neurodiversity champion with ADHD, is the creator and tutor of our new course, Diversity of Thought for Leaders. He is an advocate for people who perceive, communicate, and learn differently. He is passionate about the role that divergent thinking and doing in classrooms, workplaces, and community settings will have on what comes next.

He blends personal experiences, industry insight, multiple interests and coaching to help people explore new possibilities and pathways.

Ben’s broad interests start with the brain because it influences everything we do — how we experience, sense, feel, think, relate, and respond. He supports and empowers leaders to shift from a fixing-people-mindset to creating the conditions for people to flourish. He believes an ability to balance and integrate different outlooks, experiences, capabilities and thinking styles are a necessity for sustainable, inclusive, healthy and productive ways to live, learn, and work in the 21st Century.

Ben plays an active role in shaping the East of England culture. He supported the region’s NHS Mental Health transformation project and was chair of Healthwatch Suffolk during Covid-19, and remains a Director.  He advises local institutions on future skills and career development. Ben will soon be launching It’s All Mental, a storytelling podcast for young people to explore the root causes of mental illness. He is also the co-founder of °Latitude Project which harnesses Social Design principles to improve environments for marginalised people to prosper.

Ben talks about Diversity of Thought in Teams and Productivity & Culture on Better Conversations LIVE.
