Our Story and our Clients

Leading Edge was formed in 2007 by Patrick, a business speaker, facilitator and coach with a passion for engagement and leadership, born from his commercial leadership experience in multisite retail big box retailing.  Michaela joined in 2012, having been a consultant for 7 years and retail learning specialist and manager.  We’ve always ‘punched above our weight’ in terms of partnering with amazing diverse clients and organisations, and our interest and passion for sport led us to build our reputation in supporting high performance sports teams.   We believe this experience allows us to uniquely translate learnings from high performance  – for our sport clients from business, and for our business clients from sport.
