  1. Senior Executive, Multinational Retailer

    Leon has been my support, mentor and coach whilst going through the biggest change in my life (relocation adjustment, new job and divorce) and facing tremendous work challenges (dictatorship and racism). I can honestly say that Leon was always there for me, helping me through the entire process in such a positive way and guiding me to survive, not give up and grow as a person. Most important – I felt 100% comfortable to such an extent that I could trust Leon with highly sensitive and confidential information. Truly a life changing and positive experience working with Leon.

  2. Lance Hunter, Entrepreneur and Commercial Property Investment Specialist

    I have known Leon for many years, during which time he has provided both formal and informal business coaching. Leon is very astute at recognizing ingrained patterns and helping his clients identify and work more effectively in those areas. I would highly recommend Leon to anyone looking to improve their productivity and make good decisions for their business.

  3. Stephen Roberts, Joint Managing Director, Asset Management and Investment Company

    I have experienced Leon as the definitive coach. Combining deeply empathetic listening with incisive and insightful questioning alongside his background of real business, academic and life experience, he holds our conversations in a way that is genuinely empowering.

  4. Fiona Fewell, Human Resources Executive Director, Pearson Southern Africa

    I have been fortunate to have Leon as a coach on a number of occasions. The coaching has been both personally and professionally focused at different points in my career and my life. Leon’s coaching style is incredibly enabling. He is able to challenge the way one thinks and behaves with no judgment and he has allowed me to discover alternative options to difficult situations on many occasions. His combination of questions, care and humour has helped me grow in both the Leadership roles I held and in my personal capacity. I can and do highly recommend him.
