Biography

Have you ever watched the TV Show “Once Upon a Time?” Well, that is where I live and work. The fishing village of Steveston, BC, just 30 minutes out of the downtown core of Vancouver is where I call home. I walk to work, know my neighbours and believe that there is a balance between life and work.

I am a husband, a father and a member of my community. I am a big believer that friends and family are paramount, and we all have a responsibility to roll up our sleeves and help change our little part of the world.

I am an international speaker, podcast host and an author, contributing both to magazines and other people’s books over the last number of years. My books include “Powerful Personal Brands: a hands-on guide to understanding yours” and "Leading Beyond a Crisis: a conversation about what's next."  Free chapters of both can be found at www.yourbrandmarketing.com/ebooks.

I believe in giving back to my community and with that, I volunteer. Whether it is for my congregation, festivals in the area I live, or through mentoring youth at the University level, I believe that I may not be able to change the world, but I can influence my corner of it.

My favourite trait is my curiousity. It helps me understand the world around me better and the people that I serve. Only by understanding others, their hopes, needs, aspirations, and fears, can I help devise solutions that will help make their lives better.

I want to be the storyteller of your brand. I want to help you understand who you were, where you are today and who you want to be. I want to help you communicate your value to others, in their language so that they listen, they understand, and they engage.

In short. . . I help brands tell engaging stories that compel their customers to take action. STOP being a commodity! INSTEAD, be a brand worth loving!

Let’s talk! I want to hear about your passions and goals and help you achieve them!
Ladies and gentlemen. . . Ben Baker

A/V Preferences

ROOM ARRANGEMENT
The ideal room arrangement allows for all audience members to be able to see and hear Ben and see and hear his PowerPoint presentation without visual obstruction. For presentations to audiences of fewer than 200, classroom style set-up is preferable; for larger groups, auditorium seating is suggested. If rounds are used, the audience members should be positioned in a semi-circle facing the front.

STAGE
For groups that exceed 100, it is advisable to provide staging to elevate Ben so that those in the back can see him. The staging should be positioned as close to the front row of audience members as possible to create a setting that is as intimate as possible. While a podium is not necessary, please provide a small table or tray for props, notes, etc… Ben tends to move around the room.

SOUND
Please provide a professional quality cordless lavaliere with a brand new battery. A cordless hand-held mic should be readily available as a back-up. Ben’s mic should not be the one used to introduce him.

AUDIO/VISUAL REQUIREMENTS
Ben will integrate a multimedia PowerPoint presentation into this program, and she will bring his own laptop. To assure success for his presentation, please provide the following:

LAPTOP/MONITOR
Because of the imbedded graphics, video, and fonts, Ben’s presentation must run from his laptop computer, and will not be transferred to a house laptop. Because this presentation moves so quickly, Ben needs to be in full control of his laptop, so it does not work to hand Ben a ‘pickle’ device to signal a technician to advance Ben’s slides for him. Ben’s laptop will require three connections: 1) a secure VGA connection to the projector(s); 2) a mini-plug sound port connection to the mixing board of the house sound system for audio; and 3) a power strip

SCREEN
In larger rooms, Ben asks that a screen be positioned slightly off the center of the stage so she is not walking between the beam of the projector and the screen. In smaller rooms, a video screen will need to be positioned in the front corner of the room (in a corner where there are no entry doors). The screen should be positioned so that all audience members can view it. Please exercise care that no direct light is upon the screen—if lights above it cannot be dimmed, please see that they are disconnected.


PROJECTOR and WIRELESS REMOTE DEVICE
Ben will need a video/data projector to interface with his laptop computer. This should be a late model projector (minimum 1024x768 VGA resolution with at least 1200 ansi-lumens) bright enough to be seen on the screen without dimming the room lights. The projector should be positioned on an A/V cart aimed at the screen with the three connections described above available to it.

LIGHTING
The room needs to be fully lit to maintain a high energy level in the audience. Again, unless the projector is extremely bright, please ensure no direct light is reflected on the screen. Stage may be lit from end to end. Please do not use a follow spotlight.

HANDOUTS/WORKSHEETS
When appropriate, Ben will send a master handout/worksheet to be duplicated for all program participants prior to the presentation. Ben asks that these not be distributed to the audience before his program.

The SILVER option is designed for companies on a limited budget or who would like to try the power of the Communicate Your Why program before committing.

It provides you with a reasonable amount of shareable content and access to our network. However, for most companies, this may not provide a full year's worth of marketing materials. If you purchase a SILVER package and decide to upgrade within 30 days of the airing of your episode, we will credit 90% of the SILVER package towards either a GOLD or PLATINUM package.

Our expectation is that we will release your episode within 30 days of the recording date.

The GOLD option is a basic yearly marketing package.

Optimally, you would release an episode quarterly and use the content that accompanies it to update your marketing on a quarterly basis. It is literally four times the amount of marketing materials as the SILVER option and allows you to not only tell your story but create a case studies with clients or talk about specific ways you add value to your clientele in a non-sales way. We would suggest that you have us interview other employees, suppliers, strategic partners and/or clients with additional episodes in order to add additional value and tell a richer and a more robust version of your brand story.

Our expectation is that we will release your episodes quarterly.

The PLATINUM option is designed as a monthly marketing package

It gives you the content you desire to stay top of mind with your clients and prospects, talk about ongoing developments and tell a more robust story. Again, if you purchase a GOLD package and decide to upgrade to a PLATINUM one within 90 days of starting the original GOLD package, we will credit 90% of the original purchase price towards the price of the PLATINUM option. We would suggest that you have us interview other employees, suppliers, strategic partners and/or clients with additional episodes in order to add additional value and tell a richer and more robust version of your brand story.
