The Team

Ben Rogers

As director and founder of Potential Productions Ben has created his dream job. Starting as a runner in TV he soon progressed to Producer, making entertainment news programmes for worldwide syndication with WENN. He then moved to the voluntary sector, using his media experience to promote the work of undercover wildlife charity Environmental Investigation Agency and pressure group Friends of the Earth.

He spent 6 years in advertising, working for a number of successful marketing agencies before forming Potential Productions where his slightly unusual career path finally seems best suited.
