“I worked with Leanne at the Law Society. During her time here, she took a very proactive approach, frequently coming up with new ideas for how to achieve our goals. She very quickly grasped numerous complex issues, analysed them thoroughly, and provided clear advice on policy positions to take. Her written work was excellent, well drafted, free of typos and spelling errors, appropriately formatted. She understood what needed to be achieved, and always worked very hard to achieve it. She was always very friendly and helpful, and was a highly valued member of the team.”

Richard, Head of Justice at The Law Society of England and Wales

“Leanne came in to speak at Yahoo about Understanding, Supporting and harnessing ADHD at work and I can not recommend Leanne highly enough. She kept everyone engaged throughout the event and her talk resonated with so many people. Leanne is a brilliant speaker and her expertise and knowledge is second to none. She is an amazing ADHD coach and a fantastic speaker.”

Irene, Autistic & ADHD

“I highly recommend Leanna for ADHD presentations. The members of my organisation appreciated her presentation on the tips and recommendations for ADHD management. They especially loved that she was approachable and down to earth.”

Vikoriia, Founder of the Neurodivergent Society

“I think people enjoyed how ‘real’ Leanne was and it was nice to have someone less ‘corporate’ speaking for a change. They said she was very engaging and natural, and also very knowledgeable in the subject, which definitely helped a lot of people who attended. I know a few people reached out to her separately afterwards.”
