Technology is only part of the puzzle

It's important to remember that technology is a driver for innovation, not the total solution.

It should never be about making your business fit the technology. Technology needs to fit and work with your business.

A certified practicing project manager and business change manager Leigh Ross works with clients to fit all the pieces of the puzzle together.

What Leigh's clients say...

"Lesleigh has gone to a lot of trouble to try and work with me to capture my style, beliefs and fundamental messages, over the last week and build them into the presentation I gave today. After the dry-run on Wednesday, Lesleigh has really captured the key points out of the discussion and built some key points that I was then able to expand on.

Lesleigh assisted me in my preparation for the presentation and helped me focus on the key impression I wanted to leave the audience with. I have really appreciated all the support and assistance Lesleigh has provided and I believe the results of my part of the presentation are in large part attributable to her."

- Manager, Queensland Health

"Lesleigh managed the stakeholder engagement strategy, planning, and execution for a range of projects of national significance at NEHTA. I was the project manager for two of those projects. Lesleigh's support and management of the stakeholder engagement for my projects was outstanding. She successfully navigated the very difficult, and at times politically-charged landscape of national eHealth stakeholder issues. Lesleigh has a tireless work ethic, is highly productive and sets herself a very high standard of excellence. She understands how to bring stakeholders along on a journey of understanding and is dedicated to delivering successful outcomes through the programs that she is involved in. Lesleigh takes the time to learn the subject matter and does so very quickly. In addition to her outstanding stakeholder engagement skills, Lesleigh also happens to excel in clear, concise and effective written communication."

- Project Director, NeHTA

"Lesleigh was engaged for a short period of time to develop a change and communications plan. As a result of this engagement I can recommend Lesleigh as someone with a good knowledge of change and communication practice. She is enthusiastic, works well in a team and communicates well with stakeholders at all levels."

- PMO Director, UnityWater

"Lesleigh is able to manage diverse personalities to achieve good outcomes. She is able to rapidly understand complex issues and willing to contribute the extra effort to achieve optimal outcomes. She has proven efficient and responsive and able to produce documentation in a timely fashion."
