About Lesley White

My work background spans a broad range of business communications disciplines (corporate communications, pr, brand development, marketing & online/social media); mainly for large corporates and forward-thinking consultancies. I have also studied several alternative healing modalities.

I became involved in permaculture after much reading and researching convinced me that it is the most critical skill we can learn and share.
My appreciation is also founded in a desire to make a positive difference in the lives of those around me, preferably while enjoying great food.

As I embark on this new chapter, I'm already successfuly applying my skills to supporting and promoting ethical businesses and projects. I help businesses prosper through collaboration to create or position their brand for maximum impact; developping messages that attract potential customers and influencers; creating content to increase google visibility; and engaging with traditional and online media to generate publicity, including training clients on how to shine in media interviews.

I've also started designing a home and garden on my 1/2 acre off grid block. As my experience increases I look forward to designing more small scale projects using permaculture principles.
