Principal, IHLM, Oxford, UK

Benedict Stanberry researches, writes, teaches, coaches and consults around the world on the subjects of healthcare economics, policy and management.

Ben began his career as a medical lawyer and became a healthcare management consultant in 2001. Shortly afterwards he was diagnosed with advanced colorectal cancer, from which he was given only a 30 percent chance of survival.  Upon his recovery he served as the interim chief executive of a Brussels-based healthcare NGO and as an elected politician in south west London, where his responsibilities included overview and scrutiny of healthcare services.  From 2006 to 2009, as a director of a private healthcare company, Ben helped establish a new model of cancer care for the south of England.

Ben is presently the Principal of IHLM in Oxford and – together with his colleagues and associates – he facilitates the professional development of healthcare managers and leaders in both the public and private sectors in the UK, Middle East, Asia, Africa and Australasia.
