Testimonials for Dr Leslie Cannold

Leslie's address was everything we'd hoped and more. She was inspiring and an absolute pleasure to deal with.

Excellent! Leslie’s key note presentation at the Excellence Awards evening for Northeast Health Wangaratta was stimulating and inspiring. Staff are wanting to know when we are getting her back for a longer presentation and discussion.

NORTHWEST HEALTH WANGARATTA

 

Leslie knows her topic thoroughly. She delivers an interesting and entertaining presentation, with excellent examples that people can relate to and understand. Her presentation style is engaging, intelligent, and she delivers with a sense of humour, optimism and positivity. She is an engaging, thought provoking and change-making speaker.

HUME CITY COUNCIL

 

Dr Leslie Cannold was a guest speaker this year at the Executive Link Leadership Program, her presentation was most interesting and challenging, really getting to the nub of the tough intractable dilemmas that we face in the health system. Her capacity to both engage and entertain was remarkable, we are planning on using her for other events, I have no hesitation in recommending her, especially to help leaders develop new thinking to solve ‘wicked’ problems.

PEOPLE & CULTURE, ALFRED HEALTH

 

Leslie Cannold was chosen as a keynote speaker for our celebrant conference because of her high media profile, her speaking skills and her proven academic attainment. Her chosen theme was most relevant to the conference program...She spoke clearly and effectively with exceptional body language, dealing with questions in a direct and personable way. The audience reaction was clear. 95% rated the speech excellent.

MONASH UNIVERSITY CIVIL CELEBRANTS

 

I was one of the people who came to see you after your address yesterday morning which resonated with me both professionally and personally. Like you, I think I’m hard wired to do the right thing every time...Despite having regular exposure to leadership development at a high level, I have never heard anyone speak like you did yesterday…
