Leon Labovitch

A Yorkshireman, I developed a passion for science, music and outdoor adventure in the superb surrounds of Leeds and the Yorkshire Dales.

I’ve always used my science to help engage people with practical new ideas, so on completing university I worked with farmers across the Kingdom of Swaziland, Africa and then also in agricultural extension for the Botswana government. In the United States Mid-West I was Development Manager for Monsanto company, again engaging the sales force and farmers in new products and ways of working. Later in Shell International, I held senior roles in product development, HR and training before embarking on a consulting career. The story continues, developing The Labovitch Consultancy to guide and help clients through change by engaging well. My home is Canterbury UK and together with a lovely family find occasional time for peregrinations near and far, playing the piano and some squash racquets.

My Motivation

Because my life has changed so much, I like working in change and transformation in business. I combine art and science to deliver a complete solution for clients. Good analytical skills and judgement lead to the right solution with strong engagement, motivation and certainty to deliver. I love the challenge of commerce and to see people and companies develop and do well.

My Focus

These are times of unprecedented change and challenges across business, with a background of uncertain politics and general unrest. I’ve put together a ‘Free Briefing Checklist’ on this website to help clients analyse their business and needs, and also help prepare for Brexit. It’s very worthwhile and will only take a few minutes to complete. Also, you should find the White Papers on various aspects of change and transformation a very interesting read. This is time when we should all be nimble, think about change and seek experienced guidance. To augment programme management there’s a special need to develop corporate identity and purpose through ‘storyboarding’, which is an essential but often overlooked way of gaining buy-in. We are working with many clients in this specific area. My focus will always be on your business and your needs.
