COO, Virgin Media
As the CPO of Virgin Media, partnering with Ben and the Growth House team on our new Leading with Purpose programme has been a hugely positive experience for all involved. From our C-Suite exec team and throughout the Top 100 senior leaders to my own Leadership Development folks, the feedback has been universally positive.

The workshops at The Growth House were content rich, action orientated and inspiring. We will definitely look to repeat the approach.
Sarah Barron, Chief Growth Officer, Costa
We had a really powerful two day workshop with The Growth House. We are now extending our partnership with Ben to a 12 month assignment.
Richard Carr, MD, RothCo
We worked with Ben to further codify the Costa Brand, and define our global drivers for expansion. Ben then ran a number of fantastic worshops with the broader marketing leadership team to embed the thinking. The feedback from the team was very positive.
Chief Growth Officer, Costa
The team at The Growth House were able to really nail our design system and brand toolkit. They have shaped a really compelling approach for our two consumer brands. Ben and Emily work fast and they work collaboratively. We will continue to draw on their strategic and creative expertise going forward.

Helped by the relaxed luxe environment of the Barn all the teams have embraced the development experience and emerged as teams connected with what really matters for their next stage in the journey.
Chief People Officer, Virgin Media
The session with The Growth House was hugely beneficial for the entire team. Everyone came away with a renewed focus, a clear road map and strategy. Ben’s laser like ability to cut to the heart of every topic meant that every issue was debated and then solved.
Founder, School Exams
Thanks for two really effective and fun days. Any feedback that I have received has been phenomenal. People are now really keen to make things happen.
Each of the 100 delegates who attended The Leading with Purpose Workshops at The Growth House was asked to score the course out of 4. The average score that TGH received was 3.7, which says a lot.

A word on Ben
Before founding The Growth House, Ben Fennell spent over a decade running BBH London as CEO, helping some of the world’s biggest businesses and brands to grow. Businesses like Audi, Barclays, British Airways, Virgin Media and Tesco. During his time as CEO, Ben and his team delivered more than £600 million of revenue for BBH, and £170 million of profit. This growth was powered by exceptionally high levels of staff pride and colleague engagement. Ben is passionate about helping leaders, teams and businesses to grow.
I have worked with Ben for the best part of two decades. You will not find a leader-coach who is more principled, more purposeful, more emotionally engaged, or more passionate about helping others. He has shown this commitment to help at an individual, at a brand, and at an organisational level with only one focus … RESULTS. Ben’s track record of delivery quite simply speaks for itself.
I have had the privilege of knowing Ben for many years, both as a client and as a board member of BBH. The Growth House meets a real need in the market, not least in the company that I manage, and Ben is uniquely placed to drive this to success. He staunchly believes in the notion of getting people to go the extra mile, and he has done this consistently at BBH. Importantly, he has both the intellect and the empathy to identify what motivates and inspires individuals and groups of people. I am genuinely excited by this opportunity, and I have full confidence in Ben’s ability to reframe the offering of such services in the market.
Chief Executive, Avios Group Limited
Having worked with Ben for almost a decade I am familiar with his integrity, passion and innovative approach. All of these ingredients are evident in his new venture The Growth House. With the new UK Code of Conduct requiring companies to pay more attention to the culture and engagement of their colleagues his timing could not be better.
Managing Director, Weetabix
Ben has a deep-rooted belief that his business will only be successful if it creates growth for his clients’ businesses. In the 6 years I worked with him as his client, he consistently encouraged us to push for better work, that would be measured by better business results for us – work that works. He aligned his agency’s reward structure to our performance, and he put care and attention into creating an environment that nurtures great collaboration which in turn, drives growth. We won an IPA award in our final year together, so he can deliver too!
Chief Operating Officer, Virgin Media
I have worked with Ben for many years in his capacity as the CEO of BBH. During that time he showed just as much interest in growing my business as his own, and in following that approach did a great job of achieving both. At his core, Ben is a fabulous coach who works tirelessly to understand what makes people, teams and businesses tick. He then puts every ounce of his energy into finding innovative ways to help them tick better.
