William Coble, Global Services

“As the Global Service Manager for pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline, I had the distinct pleasure to hire and collaborate with Lea-Ann to grow our service from a couple of hundred minutes a month to over one million minutes a month in less than 12 months.

Lea-Ann took a vague marketing idea of what we wanted to achieve and made it real. We started with no strategic or tactical marketing processes. Through Lea-Ann’s drive to deliver value, expertise, and know-how, she created a strategy that connected our tactical efforts that she also helped define in order for us to deliver successfully a new training modality, “virtual classroom.”

Her professionalism and 120% contribution made it possible within time and budget. I would only do it again if she was working alongside of me.”

Leading project efforts

I am a global marketing consultant who develops marketing strategies and works with my clients to put strategic plans into action.

Consistently recognized as a dynamic and outstanding leader —

It’s been a wild ride the past 25+ years…and I can honestly say I am proud of what I’ve been able to accomplish in business and in my community. After receiving the Triangle Business Journal’s Women in Business award and a few Society of Technical Communication and IBM Excellence awards — I decided to expand upon how I can give back.

In 2009 I started producing and marketing documentaries aimed at making positive change in the world. Today, I’m producing and co-writing the feature documentary Pioneers in Skirts™ – due to premiere in 2018.

Pioneers in Skirts is a film that follows Ashley Maria — an up and coming filmmaker — while exposing the unique and unfair obstacles women face as they journey along their career paths.
