Episode 14: Jeames Hanley
Syndey-based Jeames Hanley, a Digital Business Strategist & Technologist, joins us to chat about the importance of a digital strategy in a pandemic. Jeames goes through his experience of the pandemic and how moving his whole team to work remotely enabled them to still accelerate and bid for projects. We also chat about how the pandemic was accelerating the speed of change, rather than being a barrier, and how this can be underpinned by having a digital strategy, which helps businesses prepare for when something like this happens.
As a Design Technology Manager in the AEC industry, Jeames leads digital transformation change management at a business and project level. His goal is to lead and create a Design Technology eco-system that enables staff to leverage the most advanced methodologies and technological solutions in order to realise new levels of creativity, efficiency, and delivery that can be achieved with a solid technology-based foundation.
Jeames pairs big picture vision, leadership and strategic values with a breadth of technical skills in design and business technology, as well as digital project delivery workflows.
