Founder | Coach | Creator
Dr. Clowes has spent the past few years building a coaching and consulting practice focused on human performance and organizational culture. His clients currently range across five countries and from Hollywood to the tech industry, and he still keeps one foot in the adolescent world. Previous to launching his own practice, Lester spent 16 years working in the educational industry in various capacities. He played various roles in starting dozens of schools from scratch, working in operations, marketing, hiring and training, and leadership development. During these years he played an influential role in lives of hundreds of professionals as a mentor or coach. He earned his Bachelor's in History from the University of Memphis, Master’s in Teaching from Christian Brothers University, and his Doctorate in Educational Leadership from the University of Southern California. His dissertation focused on the integration of technology and the resulting impact on culture and leadership, and his work was nominated in 2015 for USC’s dissertation of the year.
The title he’s most proud of, though, is “Dad” to the two most awesome souls on the planet. He’ll debate anyone on the idea that anime is the highest form of screen-based media, Batman can beat any other hero or villain with at least ten minutes of prep, and that Pokemon is the greatest media franchise in existence. He loves the gym, collectible card games, and Halo. In the rare time that he’s not working or hanging with his family, you can find him with The Dude Group.
