Léa has a Ph.D in philosophy specializing in ethics in sport, with a special focus on the use of performance enhancing substances. This led her to spend close to decade working with athletes on large scale behaviour change programmes with the World Anti-Doping Agency. Léa was then asked to expand her mandate into the field of conducts which breach sport integrity, in particular match-fixing. During this mandate, she had to upskill and studied criminology in order to understand the specifics of the criminal mind. This Continual Professional Development reinforced her passionate belief in the power of personal development and brought Léa’s attention to the Leadership Trust in October 2016.
Focusing on marketing and brand strategy, Janet has a strong track record in B2B and digital marketing in both the private and public sectors, starting out as a PR for set-top box manufacturer, Pace Micro Technology plc.
