Ben marans

Chief experience officer

A little bit about you:

I've dedicated my career to working in the non-profit sector. I've worked for international development NGOs, a climate funder, and Canada's largest coworking social enterprise. I currently live in Hong Kong and, outside of working for PWB, I'm a freelance photographer.

A little bit about your role at PWB:
I oversee the development and coordination of the PWB School program. I work closely with our NGO partners to help provide meaningful experiences for our students. I also collaborate with our team of teachers to deliver personalized, engaging, and eye-opening lessons. It's not just about learning the values of being an ethical storyteller - it's about living those values.

What's the best part of your job?
Having conversations with our PWB School graduates once they've returned from participating in the PWB School program. They are always so full of energy and enthusiasm from what they've just learned and experienced and they have so many incredible stories to share

I am passionate about putting people and the planet first.

When you are not working, what do you enjoy doing?
Walking around the streets of Hong Kong and witnessing day-to-day life playing out before me.

3 things on your Bucket List:
Just one thing: to ride a penny-farthing.
