2021 Creative LIAisons Coaches

Mike Leslie

Partner, President
Full Punch
, Canada

Mike grew up in Vancouver and first studied art at the University of Kwantlen, and then marketing at BCIT. Although he’s always called Vancouver home, Mike has spent the majority of his career up and down the West Coast and all across Canada. He has worked at small and large agencies, but it was at TAXI where he spent the majority of his career and ultimately advanced to the role of President. A creative problem solver with a penchant for strategy and analytics, Mike’s primary business at Full Punch is to, well, take care of the business. His unique, pragmatic POV has helped the likes of TELUS, Amazon, Expedia, Audi, BeamSuntory, DivaCup, Milk, and Credit Karma successfully navigate constantly changing market conditions. Mike is the kind of person who runs a marathon just so he can accurately say, “It was like a marathon.” So naturally, you’ll often find Mike out for a run. He also enjoys skiing, cooking, nerding out on the Internet, traveling and doing just about anything with his wife and daughter.
