Leah de Vries

What she’s best at:

Leah upskills management populations. A trainer and facilitator, working with front line managers to executive Boards across a variety of sectors for 10 years, influencing their approach to managing people and their respect for good HR practice. She also has 13 years of experience as a practising employment lawyer and draws on that to design and deliver effective and entertaining workshops that delegates genuinely enjoy and learn from. Her dual status (as experienced technical expert and skilled communicator/influencer) makes her a robust and challenging trainer. It gives her credibility with senior delegates and enables her training to deliver genuine ‘behavioural change’.

Leah is particularly successful when asked to work with groups who have struggled to engage with good HR practice or responded negatively to previous training. The variety of sectors and diversity of working environments in which she has advised, worked and trained makes her versatile – she connects and communicates effectively across a wide spectrum learners.

Who she works for:

Leah enjoys variety. Her training programmes and style are adaptable. However, clients are increasingly engaging her to
