Figure looking at stars

Reckster was created by Les Bayne – a disruptive thinker with a proven ability to uncover the unexpected. Les is a business leader with an international career spanning over 30 years. He has worked across a wide range of industry sectors where his own brand of unorthodox thinking proved to be a catalyst for rapid growth and dynamic breakthroughs for his clients.

In 2020, Les left Accenture after 20 years, where he held many senior positions.

Some of his most notable achievements include:

  • Reinventing Accenture’s relationship with Google in Europe
  • Creating Accenture’s multimillion-dollar flagship innovation centre in London
  • Managing the growth of Accenture’s consulting and outsourcing practices in the Comms, Media and Hi-Tech sectors.
  • Leading the re-set of Accenture’s strategy in Scotland and oversaw the growth of this business to more the 500 people.

Today, alongside developing Reckster, he is Chair of The Data Lab and holds several non-exec and advisory roles.

Les has an intuitive approach to problem solving. Renowned for bucking the trend, he never uses tired consultancy methodologies and practices. Knowledge, instinct, and creativity are the tools he uses to help clients realise their full potential. He is a natural communicator who places dialogue and debate at the heart of building trust and confidence.

But that’s enough of past glories.. What excites Les and Reckster is the future.

Finding new ideas can be frustrating. Methodologies have changed very little. Brainstorms and meetings into the wee small hours rarely produce results, ideas never seem to come to fruition. Consultants have become tired and predictable, following the same old pathways.


However difficult it seems, there is always an answer if you change the way you frame the question and approach the problem.
