We found out what makes Leanne Johnson tick! Engagement & Marketing Executive at #NPWAwards partner Excelerate Labs and The Women’s Organisation, Leanne gave us an insight into her busy day.

What does a day in the life of your job role look like?  

There’s so much to do in a marketing role that my tasks change daily – along with brand building for The Women’s Organisation and our programmes Excelerate Labs, Enterprise Hub and Better Off Finance I also engage with clients face to face/online and run a business growth training session on Developing Creative Content, so each day brings something a little different!   

What do you want to be when you grow up?  

I’m always eager to try new things and I’m learning more about myself each year, so who knows where I’ll be in the future! In my career, marketing has given me the freedom to develop my own ideas and explore my creative side and as a person, I hope to never stop learning, sharing my skills and meeting fascinating people. 

Who is your all-time role model?

Born and Bred in Liverpool, I have a massive appreciation for all the hard-working people this city has produced, for a small city, we’re having a huge impact on the world. While I don’t have one role model in particular; I’m inspired by the people I surround myself with every day. In good times and bad, there is no shortage of support in Liverpool. 

What one thing have you learnt during your career that you could pass on?

I’ve learned to not let self-doubt hold me back. It’s easy to miss great opportunities because you might have to step outside your comfort zone, but by stepping out, you can grow as a person. If it doesn’t turn out as well as you hoped, there will always be a lesson learned from it.
