Our Team & Strategic Partners
Design & Innovation Director/Founder
Ben Pecotich is a designer, coach, and the founder of Dynamic4 – a social enterprise and B Corp focused on design and innovation for happier communities.
Ben plays at the place where design, regenerative innovation, and wellbeing meet… and spends his time coaching leaders to solve problems that matter in more empathic and innovative ways to create great outcomes for people, communities, and our planet while being financially successful and increasing their wellbeing.
Since starting in financial services in 1993, he’s been focused on taking a human-centred approach to designing and leading strategic change in Australia, NZ, the UK, and Europe – bringing together strategy, design, technology, consulting, and program management. He co-founded his first startup in 1994, and has been working on startups and social enterprises ever since.
Ben’s also the author of Solve Problems That Matter: Design, Build & Launch Your Social Enterprise Idea, co-founder of the Sydney Design Thinking meetup, and was a founding board member of the Social Enterprise Council of NSW & ACT (SECNA).
We love collaborating with other B Corps, social enterprises, and purpose-driven organisations. Some of our strategic partners include The Scale Institute, Sefa and Sefa Partnerships, StartSomeGood, Sponge, Digital Storytellers, and more…
For us, winning doesn’t mean competing with or beating others. We’re here to collaborate and win together.
Our Guiding Principles
We work with our clients as partners in a collaborative relationship. We openly share our experience and advice, we challenge assumptions but give our clients the room to decide.
We design with and for people… to deliver great experiences. We seek to understand our client’s audience: who they are, what motivates them, and how they behave. These insights drive our design of business, product and service ideas.
We use highly visual and iterative techniques to enable faster understanding and earlier certainty.
These guiding principles are at the core of what Dynamic4 is about. They guide decisions in everything we do, from top level strategy through to daily operations:

D4 Flow is our four stage design framework. It’s dynamic and adaptable to handle all types and sizes of projects. It helps provide structure and increasing certainty as we progress through the design process
