Ben Peacock

Founder of Republic of Everyone, co-creator of the Garage Sale Trail and author of Lessons from My Left Testicle.

Ben is a writer, cancer survivor, Creative Director of South Pole, and past founder of Republic of Everyone.

He’s on a mission to help create 100 ideas that make the world a better place. So far the list includes the award winning Tails for Whales, the even more award-winning Garage Sale Trail, the fledgling Grow It Local and the Greens ad made famous by the Gruen Transfer.

Ben’s book, Lessons My Left Testicle, is about surviving cancer and learning to live.

He is a spokesperson for the Cancer Council and a member of their Men’s Health Committee.

In his spare time he surfs, plays guitar and dreams of life in a Kombi.

Ben will be speaking at Conversations in the City stream ‘The XX Factor: Cultivating Change through Ethical Investment’ and will give a closing keynote.
