Lesley is an innovative business speaker and the UK's leading authority on Personal Branding. She presents the powerful subject of business image impact in an inspirational and fun way ensuring that her audiences clearly understand how to maximise the effects of non-verbal communication in the workplace.
In times of high levels of competition, Lesley believes that business success is down to people impact. Branding yourself can be your biggest differentiator, but how many people actually spend time focusing on building their own strong personal brand? To be successful, a positive initial impact is required and then effective communications have to be sustained. Non-verbal messages represent an overwhelming percentage of effective communication.
Recognising that balancing the personal image of client-facing staff, executives and non-executives, with a corporate identity and culture is playing a vital part of successful business today, Lesley has developed particular key notes, such as 'Walking TALL for Outstanding Leadership' and 'The Brand Called ME' to address these far reaching issues for corporate conference audiences.
