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”
As I approached the big four-oh, I spent some time reflecting how to mark this milestone birthday. I decided, on a whim, to write down forty things that came to mind in a stream-of-consciousness exercise when I looked back on four decades of life. These are, in no particular order, personal truths as well as collected … Continue reading Four Oh.
I was really proud of the team for successfully carrying out our Rumah Netflix (or, Netflix House, in Bahasa Indonesia) in Jakarta yesterday! The experiential event was designed to build brand and product awareness among local media, policy stakeholders, telco and content partners, as well as social media influencers. It was a showcase of our … Continue reading Rumah Netflix – Now Streaming in Jakarta
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 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.
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.
