First Impressions From Our First Mentoring Session
I recently volunteered as a mentor with the Halogen Foundation and was inspired by these two amazing young people I met!
I’ve been fortunate to have worked with amazing people. Some of them have very kind things to say about me.
Leigh is a strategic communicator and has been able to identify and crystalise challenges while helping to solve or communicate issues in an uncomplicated manner. I would highly recommend Leigh as a great comms partner especially in the tech and business sectors where he possess both the know-how as well as the passion to discover and learn new skillsets very quickly. Highly adaptable and collaborative business partner!

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.
