Christina Garcia – Head of Internal Communications Asia-Pacific, Uber

Leigh is a great communications and public relations expert to work with. I have worked with him on a number of delicate and high profile matters. He competently represents the interests of his business unit, but at the same time, is receptive to and takes on board legal concerns, ensuring a balanced approach is achieved. I would work with him any day!

Hideo Nakamura – Senior Counsel, APAC & EMEA, Uber 

Leigh is a hardworking, strategic communications lead in a region that is extraordinarily broad and complex. I’ve found him to be an effective communicator with press, government, and advocacy groups alike. And he’s got a great sense of humor to boot!

Jena Wu – Public Policy, Global Safety and Consumer Protection, Uber

I had the pleasure of working with Leigh while building our UberEATS business in Singapore. Leigh was a fantastic partner every step of the way, ensuring he was across our business goals and then bringing an impressive amount of creativity to our communications strategy and execution. Leigh’s originality coupled with his deep understanding of the Singaporean media landscape ensured our messaging was consistently on-point while being delivered in uniquely interesting ways.

Barry Levy – Head of Expansion, Uber Eats Asia Pacific

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.

Nick Liew – Head of Strategy & Planning, Uber Malaysia

Leigh has been an excellent colleague and a key member of our Comms team. He is strategic and insightful and I’ve very much valued his partnership.

Michael Brown – Regional General Manager Asia Pacific, Uber

Leigh’s greatest strength is his ability to connect business priorities with external stakeholder perspectives and develop an integrated engagement plan to support. He is a trusted advisor to leaders in every sense of the word. In his short time at Shell, he quickly earned the respect of our leaders and is responsible for embedding a step change in our media relations approach.
He is creative and passionate and an asset to every team he either leads or contributes to.

Cynthia Alexander – General Manager, External Relations, Shell Malaysia

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!

Traci Alford – VP External Relations APAC, Shell

Leigh will be a valuable asset to any organisation because he is able to clearly identify and implement the overall strategic objectives that are required. He also has good leadership skills and is passionate in ensuring that the team is aligned with the same vision. He has consistently demonstrated his ability as a well-rounded professional who easily adapts to new ideas and challenges. In short, he will make a positive contribution to the company he works in!

Ng Siew Yen – Communications Production Services Advisor, Shell

I thought myself fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with Leigh through a project at Shell. His vast knowledge, quick analytical skills and assertiveness made for really good project management capability. I find it particularly inspiring that he’s able to keep up the passion & interest for the work that he does and translate them into real impact. One of the things that I really enjoyed about working with Leigh is that he constantly empowers people to push their limits for growth.
