Hello – my name is Leigh. For over 18 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”
When I volunteered for The Human Library project at Day X 2019, I found myself explaining what I did as my job to teenagers again and again, with each batch of kids that “borrowed” me. It was particularly challenging trying to explain what I did in communications without leaning on familiar industry jargon and contextualizing … Continue reading Explaining My Communications Job To 14-Year-Olds
As I write this, I just got back from a full day volunteering at Day X, as a member of The Human Library.

I’ve been fortunate to have worked with amazing people. Some of them have very kind things to say about me.
I had the pleasure of working alongside Leigh at Uber’s Singapore office, where I was spending a year abroad on rotation for the company. I was consistently impressed by his professionalism. Leigh’s clear and polished communication style undoubtedly comes from many years of experience making complex and technical topics easy to understand. As a data scientist, I appreciated Leigh’s willingness to listen and learn about what I was working on and think creatively about ways to apply it in his own communications work.
At Shell, I know Leigh as our regional issues management lead. He has all the qualities of a very clever “high po”: he is able to look across the region and spot links between different reputational risks; describe them individually and collectively; and finally say why it’s imperative we address them. He always has a lot to do, but his mind always appears crystal clear. If you are seeking a man with high capacity and not destined to churn out briefs, PowerPoint slides, bios; talking points and a lifetime of niggly tasks, Leigh is the one.
