Lesley is infectious. Her knowledge of the transport and logistics sector, both nationally and internationally is second to none. She has obviously not gained her experience in the trade from books - she has been at the sharp end! Passionate about her industry and knowledge she delivers her training courses very well and keeps the attention of even the most unwilling of participants. Lesley is a great asset to the RHA Regional Council. She thinks outside the box and keeps herself and others around her motivated. Lesley is a great ambassador for the Road Transport/freight industry. I couldn't recommend her highly enough. I often seek and value her opinion."
