LEESA SOULODRE

Entrepreneur, Adjunct, and Speaker in Singapore

For 20 years I have worked on the cutting edge of technology and strategy consulting, engaged with more than 400 multinationals in 19 sectors across Europe, Asia Pacific and the Americas. Today I am the Managing Partner and Chief Reputation Risk Officer of the reputation risk management strategy firm RL Expert Group, the licensee and Asia Associate of the Reputation Institute, and sit on the Advisory Board of several of the world's most promising tech startups: PR Software firm, Prezly (BE), Sports Analytics firm, Autoscout Inc, (IL, USA) and Fashion Analytics Company, FashionMatch (Korea).

A former Soldier in the Australian Army, I thrive when in the war room, be it strategizing on market access and growth strategies with Founders or deep in the trenches with their product teams. During my career I have had the privilege to lead tech and consulting companies with turnovers from $4M to $14B USD into new markets and to share the exhilaration of 1 IPO, a number of exits and the hard knocks of lessons learned.

In 2014 I was proud to have graduated 6th in my class, as the first Australian female Graduate of TRIUM, the #3 FT ranked EMBA Program of NYU Stern, the London School of Economics and HEC School of Management. I hold various other qualifications in Marketing, Sustainability, Risk Management, Reputation Management and Tech Entrepreneurship from the world's leading Universities.

Passionate to pay it forward, I have taught as an Adjunct in Marketing and Communications on the MBA and Undergraduate Programs of esteemed Universities since 2007, advise as an Expert on ICT Disruption and Innovation to the European Commission and volunteer as an Innovation mentor at the Advanced Digital Science Centre of Singapore.
