nehtaLeigh designed and implemented portfolio-, program- and project-level engagement strategy and plans, and national consultation frameworks for clinical, non-clinical, technical and non-technical audiences for national ehealth programs, providing support to a three program portfolio operating 13 concurrent projects.

She provided strategic engagement, communications and stakeholder management expertise which supported the national development, validation and adoption of eHealth technical specifications and Australian Standards development.

Key Achievements

  • Co-designed the engagement framework for business and clinical requirements gathering in a traditionally fatigued stakeholder environment.
  • Provided drafts for the re-development of the national engagement strategy and supporting frameworks incorporating IAP2 and its alignment to MSP and PRINCE2.

Lesleigh managed the stakeholder engagement strategy, planning, and execution for a range of projects of national significance at NEHTA. I was the project manager for two of those projects. Lesleigh’s support and management of the stakeholder engagement for my projects was outstanding. She successfully navigated the very difficult, and at times politically-charged landscape of national eHealth stakeholder issues. Lesleigh has a tireless work ethic, is highly productive and sets herself a very high standard of excellence. She understands how to bring stakeholders along on a journey of understanding and is dedicated to delivering successful outcomes through the programs that she is involved in. Lesleigh takes the time to learn the subject matter and does so very quickly. In addition to her outstanding stakeholder engagement skills, Lesleigh also happens to excel in clear, concise and effective written communication.
