Voice Team

Ben Eastment - Senior Consultant


Started at Voice Project: 2008

I have an extensive background in psychometrics and test/survey development. I have spent ten years working in the field of educational measurement and research at the Office of the Board of Studies, and has been involved in numerous large scale projects. I've received my Masters in Organisational Psychology from the University of New South Wales in 2007, specialising in change management and the assessment of organisational culture.

Since joining Voice Project, I have worked on a number of projects across various industries, both local and international, but continues to specialise in the education sector. I also head up the technology side of Voice, and have been integral in the development of highly tailored and automated solutions for a range of clients.
