Ben Crothers has been involved in design since before Netscape ruled the world wide web, and in strategy and facilitation for the last 15 years. He is currently Principal Facilitator at Bright Pilots, where he helps teams in all sorts of organisations be more creative and decisive together. Previous to Bright Pilots, Ben was Principal Design Strategist at Atlassian, and a consultant at Second Road. Above all, Ben wants everyone to be just as good at the whiteboard as they are at the keyboard, to be better at thinking, communicating, and solving problems visually. He's the author of Presto Sketching: Simple Drawing for Brilliant Product Thinking and Design, and 50 Remote-Friendly Icebreakers. When he's not teaching, drawing, or running workshops, Ben enjoys extreme sports such as abstract painting and baking focaccia.
