"I attended the Auckland Turf Leadership Forum facilitated by Ben Gibson. I was so happy to see Turf Managers from all levels of the golf industry as well as high profile sports facilities such as Eden Park. The discussion and the sharing of information amongst the group and encouragement given by Ben for everyone to participate was absolute gold. The material and excellent presentation by Ben was appreciated by everyone which was evident in the positive responses heard throughout the day. Well worth attending and I hope to see The Toolbox Team back in Auckland for something even bigger. Well done Ben".

"I have just returned home from a two day leadership workshop run by The Toolbox Team. This was the second leadership workshop that I have attended this year. Ben Gibson’s professionalism and delivery was outstanding! It was a forum with guest speakers, real life experiences along with many tools to work towards being a better leader. I would recommend this workshop to anyone that is looking at improving their leadership qualities professionally and personally. I got so much out of the two days."

"Ben recently held a leadership forum in conjunction with The Auckland Golf Course Superintendents Association. The day was an absolute success. It was hands down the best leadership forum that I have been to, everyone learnt a lot and were also able to gain some answers to some unanswered questions. The overall vibe at the end of the day and camaraderie between the attendees was just great. Would highly recommend using The Toolbox Team in the future!."
