Ben McBean is one outstanding speaker and last night he delivered yet again. A standing ovation followed and the messages of thanks have been overwhelming. "Ben, I just wanted to thank you personally for your speech last night at the FirstPro2014 awards in Coventry. I wanted to come and see you and have a chat but wasn't able. Your speech resonates so much with me in a number of ways as, like you but not to the same degree, I have been faced with medical challenges in my life and as you say you have to face them head on and deal with them. Like you, I don't find it easy and occasionally it gets the better of me but when I listened to you it gave me a big boost and I thank you for that. You mention that you hope to leave a legacy when you are gone and I honestly believe you already have. I know you for the brave soldier that faced adversity and won. You came across as a true gentleman. You also represent our armed forces very well; my grandfather played an important and dangerous part in WW2 and like you he was humble and true. I know he would be very proud of you. Anyway, good luck in your future career; I hear you are into property and if you ever need an agent in the Midlands on commercial property I would be more than happy to help. Thanks again." Yours sincerely, Jonathan Moore Shortland, Penn & Moore
