Hester’s advice to learners

Transform yourself and your organisation - get the most out of your Executive Education training.

Hester on working at Executive Education


I decided to make a career move from marketing in the fast growing Asia Pacific region and in the rapidly changing technology sector, to focus on Internet marketing in the education sector.

Being a keen learner myself, I enjoy bringing educational opportunities to others. Additionally, the Executive Education’s belief in quality training programme is very much in line with my personal belief in seeking and providing quality education.

Hester on her role at Executive Education

I took up the responsibility of marketing for the Executive Education in 2016. My current marketing responsibilities cover both the Otago MBA and Executive Education. I believe that New Zealand has much to offer to many parts of the world, and I look forward to expanding our services beyond the shores of New Zealand.

Background and experience

I am an experienced marketing manager. I have about 16 years of Asia Pacific marketing management experience, in a wide scope of marketing and communication activities. Before joining the Otago MBA team, I was working with the New Zealand Institute for Plant & Food Research as project manager for the project.

My last position before moving to New Zealand was as Regional Marketing Manager for Asia Pacific for Printronix, an American multi-national company (MNC), which manufactures and markets industrial printer products. I have worked for several ‘big name’ companies, including Hewlett-Packard, IBM and the Singapore Economic Development Board.
