Presenter: Ben Long


Ben started writing quirky rhymes as a way of entertaining himself on his lengthy travels to and from work when he was a research scientist. After coming away from the CYA conference with two second place awards in 2010, he decided he did not want to wait for someone else to publish his work, so he started publishing it himself. Since then, Ben has published two picture books, Tickle Me Zoo and Higgledee Giggledee, both illustrated by South Australian artist, Tom Hermann. 

Ben also pursues a passion for public speaking through his involvement with Rostrum Australia. Recently, he won a mentorship from Deloitte Australia for his short speech on an idea worth spreading, presented at TEDxSouthBank. 

Ben is a senior technical writer at Red Hat.
