Leigh is a strong corporate communications professional with high quality strategic writing and business planning experience. He works side by side with senior executives to people at all levels of the organisation and he is well liked by the team! I very much enjoy working with Leigh and value his opinion.
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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
