Hello – my name is Leigh. For about 20 years, I have built a track record for impact-driven strategic marketing communications leadership. I am passionate about “Building Influential Brands To Influence The World”.
Hi, my name is Wong Giok Leigh (王学礼) and I have built a track record of over 18 years as an award-winning marketing and communications leader. I am passionate about “Building Influential Brands To Influence The World“.
This passion began early in college when I discovered the classical study of rhetoric. Since then, the study of how effective communications (whether a word, picture, idea or action) could persuade an audience (whether individuals, groups or even nations) towards a particular response continues to fascinate me to this day. This has developed into a lifelong pursuit to study what I call, “the art and science of Influence” (in all its fair and foul forms!).
I am currently the Head of Communications for Southeast Asia at Netflix. I am part of a team that helps formulate, execute and sustain a global communications strategy for Netflix in the Asia region.Continue reading “About Me”

I’ve been fortunate to have worked with amazing people. Some of them have very kind things to say about me.
Leigh is a very pro-active, hands-on, and never-say-die sort of person. It is these core characteristics that make him the passionate go-getter who is always on-the-look out for the best and most effective ways to get things done.
An outgoing personality, mixed with an inherent need to be inquisitive, he is always thinking out of the box, has a natural drive to stay candid/fresh, and loves to get his hands dirty. All that, if it means getting the results he wants. That makes him a great team player that will not shy away from any given tasks or from even taking lead if there is a need for it.
When dealing with the media, Leigh is the sort of PR person you’d go to for the in-depth details and then some as he tries his best to muster up all the information he can about the requested topic/issue. He even goes out of his way to get any additional materials or writing support that he believes the media would need. Innovative and determined, he has certainly made his mark in both the banking sector and, with his move to Microsoft Malaysia, the ICT industry.
Versatility and agility is key for any PR person, both of which Leigh has in spades. This makes him a key asset and critical communications point-man for any organisation that manages to sign him up for the long haul.
I had the pleasure to work with Leigh Wong. He is a great professional with very deep subject matter expertise. He manages any situation with a cool, mature and thoughtful attitude. Whilst he came from a completely different industry, he invested time and energy to become a professional source. His thinking and depth always impressed me. He has a very positive attitude and absolute integrity.
