Personal and Professional Development – Corporate and Personal Brand Investment
“I’m often asked why I started speaking and my company Walking TALL. I worked in corporate life and noticed people were not necessarily getting the exposure and promotion they deserved because of lack of impact. I developed the Walking TALL methodology as a result. In my IT corporate life I presented a great deal in a pre sales role and loved it!”
The Personality of the Brand – leadership, talent, sales, front-line staff (retail, finance, IT, hospitality)
Authentic Brand and Leadership – leadership, careers, middle management, talent (retail, finance, pharmaceuticals, IT)
Lesley Everett has spent 17 years researching and developing this methodology delivering her presentations and programmes across the globe. Her expertise is with the people behaviour element of the corporate brand and aligning people brand with corporate brand messaging.
She helps businesses and business leaders provide focussed and effective cultural change programmes that allow individuals to fully interpret and internalise the corporate values and project them in their own authentic way.
Her presentations are fun, inspiring and full of practical tools that delegates want to and can implement right away. Every business needs to maximise the spend on corporate brand to create market share and brand awareness and they will never achieve this and the differentiation they deserve if people behaviours are not in alignment. In addition, for individuals to be the best they can be they need to appreciate how powerful an authentic personal brand and visibility plan is and how this can accelerate their career progress. Lesley’s presentations and content have a dual benefit – to maximise corporate brand investment and to provide managers and leaders with the essential tools for standing out from the crowd by developing their unique differentiator.
Lesley and her company Walking TALL are well-known for being pioneers in this field. Even though this is specific area of expertise, it can easily be tailored to support leadership, career and sales events in particular, providing an appropriate emphasis in these areas as required.
Brand Me – careers, talent, empowering women, store and admin staff (retail, hospitality, finance, IT, pharmaceuticals)
Branding for Sales Teams – sales, customer-facing staff, management (IT, finance, pharmaceuticals)
Lesley founded Walking TALL International in 2004. She created the Walking TALL methodology and continues to actively develop it today. Currently Lesley spends her time as a keynote presenter, delivering the Walking TALL Personal Branding message to audiences and media across the globe on a regular basis and her international profile is growing rapidly. She has presented to audiences in 25 countries and 5 continents, including most recently as one of only a few women invited to speak in Iran. Her profile particularly in the USA continues to increase.
Lesley’s solid insights and practical advice have taken her to audiences around the world and into the confidence of Fortune 100 executives, politicians and celebrities, as a personal brand coach. She says “I absolutely love my work and it feels like the perfect culmination of a number of years of varying strengths and skills coming together with my absolute passion of being who you really are and getting recognised for what you bring to the table. I’ve been lucky enough to be able to build my own business and am proud of what we as a team have been able to create so far. We have many exciting times ahead and I look forward to the next stages in this amazing journey”

The recent CFO Forum had excellent reviews from its attendees, thanks in huge part to your hard work providing an enlightening and provocative conference session.
“THANK YOU for your GREAT Contribution in Iran. I myself have totally enjoyed your message and the presentation. It was beyond almost all the delegates expectation, and simply the top 10 for me among 120 speakers I have worked with. Thank you as well for promoting me and Iran as our great respectable Lady Ambassador – I have no doubt that this visit is the first of many more visits to come.”
