Leigh is a great communicator – he’s professional, adaptable and takes the time to understand the drivers and outcomes required for a project. Leigh knew and understood our target audience and what we were looking to achieve. He has great facilitation skills and industry experience, applying a proactive and creative approach. Leigh is a pleasure to work with and I would not hesitate in recommending his services.

Leigh is a successful communicator because he’s deeply interested in people, community and  ideas. This underpins his ability to connect and work from a place of true care. Leigh’s quiet confidence and creative approach are reassuring and effective. And I love Leigh’s energy and his capacity to engage both intellectually and in the space of heartfelt values.

I was so impressed with Leigh’s facilitation skills during our recent workshops.

He is without a doubt one of the best facilitators I’ve seen in 30 years of doing this type of work. I will definitely seek him out for future facilitation work.

Leigh worked with NHT to develop our communications strategy.  To have someone with Leigh’s values was important and gave us confidence.  The process Leigh ran with the staff and board helped clarify and focus our goals.  This will really help us drive our communications forward.  Thanks Leigh!

We were thrilled when Leigh agreed to undertake the media and PR campaign for the visit of international Buddhist teacher Geshe Tenzin Zopa. His results were far beyond anything we could have achieved, resulting in a great turn out. Leigh can quickly get across the material and tone, and advocate for his clients most persuasively. His generosity in doing this work for Chag Tong Chen Tong Centre shows his values in action of purpose driven communications.

Leigh is an excellent facilitator and communicator. Leigh worked with my team and Board to workshop our corporate plan. Leigh’s skills were invaluable – in making sure everyone felt comfortable to contribute, and ensuring we got through a lot of content in a short period of time. He managed to walk the fine line between driving us to achieve serious outcomes quickly, and making participation enjoyable for all. I would be very happy to work with Leigh again.

Everyone was really pleased with the final products, and the process was exactly what we needed: values-based, insightful, strategic, efficient, adaptable, respectful and inclusive.

Leigh’s work for Ten Days on the Island was proof perfect of his capacity to understand and respond to a brief – he is responsive, creative, and very clever in his ability to describe the ephemeral and explain the intangible. I highly commend him for his efficient practice and delightful personality.
