Over the past four years, the LESA team has played a pivotal role in establishing our brand identity. LESA Communications reliably delivers their work on time to a consistently high standard of service excellence.

— Jeroo Billimoria

Co-founder and Chief Facilitator Catalyst 2030, Founder Aflatoun, Founder Child Helpline International, and serial social entrepreneur

In addition to doing so much of the comms day-to-day and project work, they also act as our outsourced comms director, helping us stay on program, develop story pitches and work with media outlets to cover our work. All while meeting the typical tight deadlines and at a surprisingly affordable cost.

The LESA team is on-time, on-budget, creative and original in their thinking. Hire them!

I am very impressed with the quality of LESA Communications with the readability and visual presentation of materials online and in hard copy, and grateful for their advice on communications organising and strategy. I recommend them to others!

The LESA workshop was excellent… It brought a lot of aha moments for those entrepreneurs who are not using social media. Thank you so much for your time and empowering our Foundation entrepreneurs.
