Leigh was a welcome addition to the Be Challenged team back in 2014, she had the daunting task of setting up the Melbourne Office and growing the VIC market. Be Challenged’s Melbourne office has since grown from a staff of 1 to now having 4 full-time employees with numerous professional facilitators to call on.
Leigh is originally from South Africa and worked with Be Challenged’s global Catalyst partner- Dream Team over there for 8 years in different marketing and event roles. Leigh had a wonderful reputation as a facilitator but when she moved to Australia she wanted to focus on the sales and account management side of the business. Leigh’s experience in facilitating programs combined with her mission to really get to know clients and their brief, means that she will always put forward a list of team event options that will achieve the desired results and nail the brief. Leigh creates long lasting and genuine relationships with her clients, based on trust, respect and always delivering on what is promised. Leigh’s passion is to make a difference to people’s lives and in teams across Australia and beyond.
Some of the highlights of Leigh’s career so far include working with the South African Olympic Team before the start of the 2012 Olympic Games, running a 5-day event with Men’s Health magazine to choose the face of “Men’s Health Look of the Year” as well as working on international programs for her larger corporate clients.
Outside of work you will most likely find Leigh- outside. She loves to go hiking, camping or just spending time in nature. Leigh likes to spend quality time with friends and family which often includes going to watch a game of the Melbourne Rebels (rugby union for the uninformed). As if all this is not enough, Leigh has also started up guitar lessons.
