Data & AI, Visualisation Specialist - Sydney

Ben joined onepoint in Sydney in 2020 as a data visualisation specialist. Graduating with a double Bachelors of Law/Arts from the University of Adelaide, Ben had a strong desire to head overseas and to work with technology in Asia. An opportunity led him to move to Yangon, Myanmar, resulting in an Account Manager role with Microsoft and telecom MPT at a local leading PR agency. There, he was instrumental in the launching of multiple Microsoft solutions into the Myanmar market, including Microsoft 365 and new Azure products. 

Realising the potential of IT and Microsoft solutions, he pivoted to working with the low-code Power Platform, creating Power BI reports and Power Apps business apps to improve operations. He lived in Myanmar until COVID, returning to Australia in March 2020, and continuing to work with the Microsoft Power Platform on a project for the Queensland State Government. 

Born in Adelaide, Ben has always maintained interests in technology, travel and foreign cultures, and business and current affairs. Prior to COVID, he travelled extensively, filling up a passport in only 6 years. Some highlights include a Rotary High School Exchange to Japan, a 5-day tour to North Korea, driving a new Audi across Germany, and a semester at Korea University in Seoul. 

Ben loves working at onepoint because it is very international, and gives moments for cultural exchange with clients and other colleagues.

If you were to start a business tomorrow, what would it be?

Benjamin – I would begin a smart-home and high-end audio-visual installation business. Friends don’t let friends watch TV in 540p!

A hidden talent?

Benjamin – I have swum my whole life. I was the Swimming Captain in high school, and my first job was a swimming instructor. This year I raised over $3800 for youth suicide awareness by swimming 26km throughout March as part of Laps for Life.

What are the three adjectives that a former client would use to describe you?

Benjamin – Communicative, creative & perceptive
