Leah de Vries

Never far from a flipchart, a set of flashcards or a pack of tiddlywinks, Leah is a nationally renowned (and award-winning) trainer who now heads up Alpaca’s learning and development arm. Having spent time as an employment lawyer before working with some of the UK’s biggest companies to refine and embed their people strategies, Leah can take the most complicated topics and engage an audience in a way that measurably increases engagement and “stickability”.

Whether it’s leading a programme of change, inspiring line managers to act more robustly and fairly or working one-to-one to develop improvements in personal communication and management skills, Leah has yet to deliver a training session that didn’t result in the client coming back for more and a happy course commissioner basking in reflected glory (although she doesn’t like us to shine the spotlight on her too much).

Unlike a real Alpaca, Leah is most at home on a cold wet wintery beach wearing wellies and playing frisbee.
