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.

I was really proud of the team for successfully carrying out our Rumah Netflix (or, Netflix House, in Bahasa Indonesia) in Jakarta yesterday!

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 always enjoy working closely with excellent communications professionals like Leigh. At Netflix, we learned from each other as we worked to ensure the brand was well-perceived and understood by members as well as key stakeholders like journalists, policymakers, opinion leaders and more. Leigh is a hard worker, inspiring, and fun to work with. We would try to challenge the status quo and attempt new approaches to address the opportunities and threats in our fast-moving, ever-changing industry. I have faith in his capabilities and truly believe he will be an outstanding leader anywhere. I hope to be fortunate enough to work with him again in the near future.
I have had the pleasure of working with Leigh when he led Comms for Malaysia.
In an environment of urgent decision-making, Leigh was a voice for calm. This really helped in times of press and regulatory scrutiny.
Another quality which helped the Malaysian team was Leigh’s good relationship with members of the industry. This resourceful nature gave the team confidence that in all things comms, Leigh would always have our back.
