Your leadership seminar drew rave reviews. I really appreciate the
enthusiasm you brought to the event. — Organizer, regional
From speaking during the United Nations 50th Commission on the Status of Women for the International Federation of Business & Professional Women to delivering a talk for students who attend the American Language Program at Columbia University, I target every presentation so that it can help audience members grow their workplace intelligence.
Helping others find ways to level the playing field and reach their full potential is part of the agenda of every workshop, seminar, and lecture I deliver on leadership, the changing culture of organizations, and professional development.
If finding an on-point, intelligent speaker with a good sense of humor and ability to connect with any audience is your ONE challenge, invite me to be your next speaker. To begin the process, call me at 646-373-4321 or e-mail me at Leigh@LTR-NYC.com

Excellent!. Excellent! You did an excellent job of bringing an important slant on the topic of leadership. Thanks so much for being willing to raise this issue of how women are portrayed in the media. --- Graduate student, National Association of Women MBAs-Tulane Chapter, Freeman School of Business, Tulane University, New Orleans.
Leigh can be bold during her presentations because she considers herself not a speaker but an educator in the true sense of the meaning. The root word educare means to bring out the innate abilities of the individual.
Whether she’s teaching a leadership module as part of a team teaching approach to an undergraduate management class or translating leadership skills to their basic elements for English as a Second Language students, Leigh’s effectiveness is praised by students and faculty alike.
Like many subject matter experts, Leigh contributes to growing the leadership skills of graduate and undergraduate students at colleges and universities. The trained educator is invited to speak for such institutions as Columbia University, New York University, and, before she became a member of their Faculty, the Zicklin School of Business within Baruch College, part of the City University of New York (CUNY) and the nation's most ethnically diverse campus.
Thank you again for your excellent presentation. When the teachers asked their classes whether they had enjoyed your talk and gotten a lot out of it, the feedback was very positive. Even one of my students with weak listening comprehension skills who said she had understood only 50% commented that she had found it very interesting. She's from Saudi Arabia, where women are just beginning to enter the business world, something that she plans to do. — University Coordinator, English as a Second Language Program
Thank you for coming to our class and participating in a panel discussion on leadership. We enjoyed it very much and learned a lot from your great advice. Your examples were very helpful because we were able to relate to them and reflect on our actions as we prepare to be business leaders. --- Undergraduate student, Zicklin School of Business.
Leigh knows about getting up in front of a classroom. She was instrumental in developing content for and training subject matter experts during a “Train the Trainer” program sponsored by Continuing and Professional Studies at Baruch College. Her expertise knowing what constitutes an effective learning session is part of the profile of this dedicated educator.
Leigh did a superb job in creating a constructive, educational and fun atmosphere during the Train the Trainer program. — Project Manager, Wall Street firm.

I didn't get a chance to tell you in person what a terrific presentation you gave this morning. Your combination of depth and skill in leading a stimulating exchange of ideas is remarkable.
I was going to sleep in and then I remembered you were speaking. You were so outstanding last time, I had to be here!
The vignettes of the women you interviewed were particularly gripping. You present in a warm, engaging, natural manner and it is a pleasure to listen to your material.
