During her 21 years in adland, Leisa has turned her hand to everything from brand campaigns for American Express in New York, to Family Violence in New Zealand. From training Pukekos to paint, to training men to checking their balls.
Leisa has a collection of business cards from Ogilvy, Lowe Worldwide, Saatchi & Saatchi and FCB, where she has led the way for the last 10 years. She’s also amassed an impressive array of paperweights from Axis, Cannes, D&AD, AWARD, One Show, Spikes and was once voted “Most likely to be really really good at advertising”.
At work, she proudly bears the title of Chief Creative Officer. But at home, that doesn’t carry much weight with her two young employees, Maemi & Lola. Instead they refer to her as Chief Mummy Officer. That role doesn’t come with a business card.
