Dr Simone Lester practised as a hospital doctor before moving into leadership roles where she has worked in both NHS and private organisations, providing clinical oversight alongside developing and delivering healthcare improvement strategies.  Her passion is improving patient outcomes through evidence-based initiatives, and she specialises in cross organisational working which optimises knowledge-share, engagement and utilises technology as an enabler. 

With a background in emergency planning, she worked as a Clinical Lead for NHSEI Behavioural Unit during the pandemic to develop a model of engagement that would facilitate vaccine uptake in hard-to-reach communities. She is a founding member of the Sodexo Medical Advisory Committee that continues to provide current information and advice to the global workforce of over 500k employees and their families on how to keep safe and well during the pandemic. As Medical Director she oversaw the safe clinical delivery of COVID-19 Assisted Testing Sites and now works closely with operational teams in exploring new ways of working that will improve consumer experience together with delivering greater service efficiency.

With additional qualifications in Economics and Public Health she understands the many constraints within health and care systems and believes that solutions need to be multifaceted, with all stakeholders pulling in the same direction with a clear vision to improve patient care.

Convenzis Healthcare Event testimonials

What our clients say about us

Working with Convenzis is a stress-free and a rewarding experience, with fantastic engagement from a highly targeted and relevant audience


I worked with Convenzis, primarily Dan, for the first time this year, putting together a bespoke online event for IBM. He has always been so responsive and accommodating. The team always remained professional and helpful – despite the many demands from our side! They were very keen for us to maximise on the investment and revisit those attendees who had not committed to follow ups.
It was an absolute pleasure doing business with Convenzis and I know there will be more opportunities next year. Looking forward to it!


In view of the recent NHS Oncology Conference organised by CONVENZIS which was sponsored by Pascoe Healthcare Ltd, CONVENZIS exhibited professionalism through credible organisation, invitation of delegates/respectable Speakers and general conduct of the entire conference. This has also shown that CONVENZIS is a great partner in business which is fundamental to ROI of partnering Companies even in the wake of the pandemic.

“We’ve worked with the Convenzis team for several years and their events are a regular occurrence for us. Not only is the content always extremely topical, but the speakers are always excellent and the support from the team ahead of and during the events is exceptional. The team are incredibly receptive to feedback and always goes above and beyond – a real pleasure to work with!”


“It has been a pleasure to work with Matt and Dan for the past few events. Everything has always run smoothly and we’ve always managed to gather a large number of interested parties due to the events they have hosted.

They are also very helpful and timely in their responses, which has made working with them very easy “
