Ben Tipney

Professional Coach and Trainer

Ben has been with Atrainability since 2013 and is former international athlete and highly successful professional coach and trainer, representing the Great Britain Rowing Team at a number of World Championship events. He has an Honours Degree in Leadership and over 10 years’ experience coaching individuals in high performance and high risk occupations, including coaching an under-resourced South African Rowing Team to World Championship Medals. He has trained, mentored and coached teams and individuals across a variety of industries, including public and private sector corporations & SMEs, high level sports teams, educational institutions and healthcare organisations – both private and NHS.

Ben’s approach as a coach has always been to pay particular attention to the NTS (Non-Technical Skills) necessary to maximise performance under pressure, and he has brought this experience to bear in his work with Atrainability, offering engaging and interactive Human Factors Training Courses as well as carrying out Training Needs Analysis, course design & development and coaching in the work environment, right across the spectrum of healthcare. He has worked closely with trusts to support them in developing a Safety Culture, and structuring training programs that enable the trust to sustain the behavioural changes made.

One of Ben’s particular specialisations is helping professionals deliver their best under pressure - raising awareness of what happens to us when we are in stressful situations and developing innovative and highly effective strategies to manage this.
