 City News Queensland Business Women’s Christmas Luncheon, December 7, 2006

“The event was a sellout, and Leanne kept a large audience entertained throughout her presentation, with anecdotes about her interesting and unusual career path, while at the same time sharing valuable lessons about leadership, motivation and determination.

Leanne has a natural warmth and is a superb role model for women in management and aspiring leaders.”

University of Queensland Emerging Business Conference, July 2007.(Keynote presenter)

“Leanne was invited to present the keynote address because she was the top Information Systems student in the MBA degree at the University of Queensland in 2006. Leanne’s presentation was well prepared, well organised and well delivered bearing in mind the level of the audience to which she presented.

We received many comments afterwards from students and teachers alike praising the way in which Leanne had pitched her presentation at the right level, and how she had kept the attention of the students throughout the presentation.”

“IPAA Queensland had the opportunity to have Leanne Stevens as a guest speaker at Brisbane Hilton Hotel as part of our Emerging Women’s Inner Circle Series of events.  It was a fabulous presentation.  Attendees walked away with a strong sense that you really can achieve as a young female employee in the Public Sector. Leanne spoke candidly about her career journey in a way that normalised the experience and connected with individuals in the audience. Thanks Leanne for sharing your story.  We look forward to one day hearing the next chapter in your journey.”
