What is the most embarrassing thing you’ve ever done?
“One time, I was snow skiing and had to go to the bathroom really bad. I took off my skies, rushed to the restroom, pushed open the door and crammed myself into a stall. Soon, others came in and I noticed their voices were a little high. Then a person entered the stall next to me wearing white boots and pink pants! I waited for everyone to leave, then slipped out. Only then did I see the women’s symbol on the door. I was relieved I didn’t get caught but felt bad for the person in the next stall. She might have been a little intimidated if she saw my boots. They were black, size 14!”
The only really intimidating thing about Ben is the success he’s found with Systemation. And those size-14 boots would certainly be hard for anyone to fill! He’s always had a vision for what Systemation could be for clients and facilitators and staff. He works hard to fulfill that vision, and everyone benefits as a result! Dedicated, passionate, nothing-less-than-the-best-will-do, upstanding, light-hearted, fun … People make the difference at Systemation – People like Ben Snyder
