Testgrid Consulting Programs evolved from the empowerment & culture focused approach of specialist change CEO, Stuart Hayes, who has trained and worked with elite consulting organisations including KPMG, Andersen and Deloitte; been a business leader and professional CEO of corporations in Australia, Asia and the UK; and assisted clients as diverse as multinationals, governments, a royal family and private companies of all shape and sizes.

Outside Stuart’s work in helping Australian based businesses, he also works closely with some of the world’s most transparent charities, including Plan International, facilitates leadership development sessions for the CEO Institute and has lectured Advanced Diploma of Leadership & Management programs.

Stuart is also the host of Careers Unplugged, a podcast which frequently achieves Australia’s top rank in both the business and career categories on iTunes.  Careers Unplugged is an interview format program in which Stuart interviews well known and successful leaders about their career and leadership journeys.
