Benjamin Smith

Founder - Strategic Digital Consultant

Benjamin is passionate about delivering genuine solutions to improve societal outcomes. With over 20 years’ experience in providing ICT solutions and support, he has worked across a range of industries for many clients; primarily government (Defence, Law Enforcement and Territory/State Government) whilst also having entrenched himself within a sizeable multi-faceted hospitality venue in order to better understand the industry and provide solutions to increase public safety and improved business performance. 

 

Benjamin's experience involves reviewing existing operations, assessing and implementing new technologies, migrating & consolidating disparate IT infrastructures and leading bids to increase services delivered by private enterprise. He has played many lead roles in the IT solution lifecycle, including project scoping and delivery, technical design, solutions design, implementation, and ongoing support. Benjamin is focused on aligning a business’ digital strategy with their overall business strategy; usually kept at arm’s length from each other.

 

Personal strengths include leadership and management of personnel, high-level attention to detail and a strong commitment to successful business outcomes. Benjamin has worked closely with the Executive Management Teams in the businesses he has been employed by or consulted to, ensuring the alignment of the overall strategic direction throughout. 

 

Benjamin's career philosophy is to promote the understanding that digital technologies provide the means that enable people to transform businesses and society, rather than being the transformation.

 

Benjamin has been a member of the ACS (Australian Computer Society) since 2007 and graded as a Certified Professional; an internationally recognised accreditation

Benjamin is the Immediate Past Chair of the ACS NT Branch and a member of the National Congressional Committee.

Having attended many different awards nights throughout the country, Benjamin identified that the NT was significantly underrepresented (if represented at all) in spite of there being creative solutions built in the jurisdiction which, in his opinion, outshone those achievements attained elsewhere. Ultimately, this led to the development of a consortium of industry bodies and government to create the NT Digital Excellence Awards in 2017, which has resulted in an increase of one to zero nominations on the national stage to 20 in 2018.

While originally from Adelaide, Benjamin has called the Territory his home since 2011 and is driven to demonstrate to the world that the NT offers a fantastic lifestyle and opportunities unfathomable elsewhere.
