Andrew Lester, BComm BA PMP
Digital Transformation and Technology Executive
Andrew has worked with professionals, students, project teams, operational teams and programs of projects for the last 17 years and has found that a deep understanding of motivations, personalities, and goals provides the insight required to empower people to provide their best.
I am a technology entrepreneur driven to bring about change in the way we do things. I never like to accept the way things are, I get a charge out of taking on the “that’s just the way we do it” culture.
I am most at home building relationships with people, facilitating groups, and finding the heart of a probelm that needs to be solved.
