Be Listening - Episode 3. Broad Stripes and Bright Stars

In this special edition of our podcast series hosted by Project Assistant Christine Aasma, we speak to Ben Hocken, MD Americas at Broadsword on the exciting launch of our US office. 

Ben is part of the senior leadership team at Broadsword with a significant background as an award winning Events Producer and Creative Director. 

His career has included work within the automotive, film, corporate and fashion sectors with a focus on delivering extraordinary brand experiences and strategic communications for clients. 

Ben recounts some of his career history and event highlights that led him from early beginnings in LA through to his current role with Broadsword. We talk about why Broadsword are seizing this opportunity now to expand into the States and where our team and approach to events and experiences can add the most value for our clients.

Finally we pick Ben’s brains on the top trends he can see for transatlantic events and try to pin him down on New York hot spots for cocktails!
