Aedrian Bekker

Managing Director, OR Consulting


Where does the story start?

I was born in South Africa. When I was training in the early 1990's the country was undergoing a remarkable transformation. Being part of a society that was going through these changes inspired me to get involved. It also taught me about the human capacity for forgiveness, redemption and sheer pigheadedness. I learned that in changing anything, no individual action was ever too small or ever enough. 

Before OR Consulting what were you doing? 

I worked as a clinical psychologist in the NHS in York. However, early on I found that institution and culture of the NHS was as intriguing as the clients/patients it was treating. It was fascinating and exasperating in equal measure.
