As an observer from outside, I have seen Lesley lead the Institute of Export with vigour, determination, and commitment over the years. Her skill at networking and engaging with other organisations and influencers is formidable and she is astute in seeking opportunities for the betterment of the profession and the organisation. She thinks ahead, looking for the long, as well as the short, term and has a vision of what the future should look like. Her energy and enthusiasm are infectious in such a way that she brings others with her and encourages collaboration.
Lesley's enthusiasm and passion for Exporting energises those who interact with her and any organisation she works with. Her ability to manage the detail while keeping her eyes firmly on the end goal is remarkable and builds confidence with those she works for and those who associate with her. She has a breadth of understanding of how trade works, and how to make international sales profitable, offers all businesses a chance to succeed in building sustainable export markets. Talk to her and you'll see what I mean.
Not only is Lesley considered an authority on international trade, which she demonstrated when we worked together at CapGemini, she is an acclaimed and charismatic panellist, speaker and MC. Her industry and trade experience coupled with her prestigious career history make Lesley top choice for senior level events and engagements within government, industry and media. Her impressive global business network is often referenced in powerful anecdotes that reinforce her message and of course appeal to and entertain the captivated audience. She manages to balance having a strong presence with putting people at ease, often using humour to lighten even the trickiest of topics. A rare find indeed.
