Benson is one of those people who just oozes presence and leadership. He has a wonderful self-deprecating sense of humour. Benson loves stories. Stories of family. Stories of country. Stories of young people. Stories of the future. He sees his life clearly entwined in the past, present and future. Benson has a vivid picture of the future he wants to see, create and help lead in this country. His vision is compelling and it is impossible not to back and believe in him.
