My work is about communicating new ideas and helping turn them into realities

I used to work as a supply chain consultant in factories, mines and warehouses, getting new systems used by busy people.

I recognised the power of the human factor in successful innovation – the critical importance of communications and relationships.

For a time I was a professional coach and trainer, helping business
managers turn their plans into effective team action.

Now I write for a living – which gives me freedom to travel. I specialise in pitching new ideas for innovative businesses, including web content and copy.

I’m an ideas junkie, combining new developments with old wisdom to deliver smarter solutions

I – mostly – live in the hills outside Melbourne (Australia, not Canada) and do regular road trips to explore the beauty of the outback.

I have a wonderful husband, a forest garden full of birds and an amazing coworking community.

I’ve been an owner builder, hands on for years in building our home in the hills and its bird-friendly garden.

I’m addicted to the written word, new ideas and the power of story telling.

I read sci fi, fantasy, innovation, sustainability, business development and communication in about equal amounts.

I’m hooked on the opportunity side of sustainability

I discovered the wealth positive, inspiring solutions side of sustainability back in 2002 when I first read Natural Capitalism.

I’ve been writing on sustainability, opportunity and innovation for years.

In 2009, I wrote The Deep Green Profit Handbook as a short guide to the hidden business opportunities of sustainability.

I blog and speak about sustainability, opportunity,innovation delivery and regenerative business on social media.

"Not only does the foam dyeing method do away with the potential for water waste at the end of the manufacturing process, which is one of the most environmentally damaging aspects of one of the world’s most resource-intensive industries, but it drives down energy usage, too. According to Wrangler, the foam dyeing process requires 60% less energy and mitigates waste by the same percentage."

What People Say

"Leigh was recommended to me by my website developer. I subsequently became aware that she actually worked on his website too, and that clearly worked as I had already hired him.  After two minutes of our first Skype conversation, I knew I had the right person. Leigh obviously has a business background and a broad range of experience and knowledge of all things commercial and very quickly was in tune with what I needed. I got the feeling that Leigh wasn’t just copywriting but truly cared how my new website would turn out, and that its success was as important to her as it is to me. Everything was delivered on time as promised, and I don’t think we had a single revision.  I highly recommend Leigh’s services, you will not be disappointed!"
