Leigh is a proactive and creative communications professional. He delivered consistently in his role at Shell which covered a wide range of skills from managing issues to handling the local media. He was always happy to go the extra mile to make sure the content was delivered on time and to a high standard. Leigh was a key member of my team in Malaysian (and APAC) team; he will be sadly missed. Good luck with your next move and welcome to Singapore!

I had the pleasure of working with Leigh during my tenure in Microsoft Singapore, when he joined Microsoft Malaysia to lead the corporate communications function. Working with Leigh inspired me to achieve higher goals, because he encouraged me to reach out past my boundaries through his outstanding campaigns for Microsoft Malaysia. Many of which won him local, regional and global recognition and awards.

When asked, Leigh gave helpful criticisms of my work and then would willingly help with sharing his best practices. He was an excellent team player who could always be counted on to put in more than his share of work and very well loved by his peers and senior leadership team.

There were a few things that I admired about Leigh: He is one of the most disciplined PR practitioner I’ve ever known. His ability to work efficiently under stressful conditions and nerve-wrecking deadlines speaks volumes about his hard work, determination and composed demeanor. Yet alone demonstrated world-class leadership skills and morale. He is compassionate praiseworthy perseverance and ambition.

He has proven to be an indispensable asset for the organization. A highly recommended individual, who I believe has all the right qualities to take on big leadership roles.
