Creating value for clients and their customers
Leigh Risbey - Exec On Call is founded on the practical application of skills, knowledge and experience. I have built my career on tailoring and applying what I learn coupled with practical experiences to create solutions that are relevant and applicable.
Following a hands on trade career I took a conscious decision to enter the world of Administration and Management. I have led large and small, diverse and geographically dispersed teams and experienced the joy and tribulations of growth and contraction of businesses. Having served as a member of the Executive Team of a large business, as Service Director, and a Sales Director, I then decided to change countries and create a strategy and implement product introduction projects to disrupt stagnant markets. The strong desire to remain in Australia, inspired me to join an organisation at its peak and manage the right sizing of an overweight costly operations resulting in some impressive savings and improved safety performance.
Having worked with corporates for a while I took the decision to work with smaller organisations and with great effect put into practice the relevant experiences I have acquired. I continuously develop my knowledge and skills and I am a trained and certified Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) Practitioner and uniquely qualified to deliver the help businesses need in these trying and changing economic times.
