Introducing Lee Carseldine
Lee Carseldine is an all around unique individual: an ex professional cricket player, TV Survivor runner-up and multiple business founder, he started Droneit by being it’s sole operator and grew it by using the tools that he used throughout his career, setting success as the ultimate and only goal of his endeavours. Although it started as a services company, the training division quickly became the core business unit.
Initially, the work was all based around me flying for clients all over Australia but with the advancement of technology and changes in regulation over the years, I pivoted the business model to a training focus as I saw a huge opportunity in the market.
Addressing the technical challenges brought about by growth
James and Lee saw the need for a new way in delivering drone training courses but the shift to online was not easy, they had to switch from physical, face-to-face classes to a custom learning platform and then an LMS platform, all while adhering to strict regulations set by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority.
“We were very disappointed in the majority of the LMS solutions we tried as they simply lacked major functionality.”
