Leila Henderson


An active member of the Australian business community, I’ve focused my skills and experience in entrepreneurship and media to help corporations, SMEs and individuals develop a high-impact and relevant public presence. In my early career, I held senior editorial roles on category-leading publications such as The Australian Women’s Weekly, Reader’s Digest, IPC (London), The Canadian, and The Australian.

While my foundation skills are in journalism and PR, I feel most affinity with high tech industries.
