Lesley has been my Event Coordinator for almost two years, and is an integral part of my Leadership Team at eWomenNetwork Vancouver, and my right hand woman. She is dedicated, loyal and hardworking. She excels at managing logistics, creating systems and developing processes for efficiency and effectiveness. I know I can count on her and it is very refreshing to see somebody who is dedicated to my success and who has a high standard of professional excellence. She's creative and reliable; she gets things done. Period! - Michela Quilici, Executive Managing Director, eWomenNetwork
As the Ticketing and Admissions Director for TEDxStanleyPark conference, Lesley quickly commanded the respect of her peers, delegated effectively when necessary; went the extra mile on countless occasions; got things done effectively and efficiently; was a skilled communicator and diplomat; was unflappable under often highly stressful conditions; inspired others with her ‘can do’ attitude; was pro-active and decisive; had empathy and support for others at all times. Lesley was a delight to work with. Her reasoned thinking, fair-mindedness, limitless energy, positive attitude and boundless enthusiasm made her a great teammate and valued asset of TEDxStanleyPark.

“Hi Lesley. Can you please take care of this for me?” That’s how easy it is to work with Lesley Johnston. Now, people I’ve worked with know that I like to be a little “hands-on”. That’s a polite way of saying that I like to be in control. So using a virtual assistant was not a natural adjustment for me. But Lesley made it easy. How? By ensuring that she understood exactly what I wanted done, by communicating her progress at all points along the way, and by anticipating what I might require next. She’s awesome! Lesley became an integral part of the Magnificent You Women’s Conference. She helped organize the volunteers, the vendors and the speakers, coordinating the behind-the-scenes activities to allow me to concentrate on my duties as conference organizer. She proved herself invaluable before and during the event. So I went from “Lesley, I need this done, and here’s how to do it, and here’s the best way to go about it, and blah blah blah.”, to “Hi Lesley. Can you please take case of this for me? Thanks. You’re amazing.” I give Lesley practically any task, and then forget about it. I know that she will get it done.

I hired Lesley to help me with an event that I was struggling to organize.  She made it possible for me to move forward effortlessly and with confidence.  Furthermore, her eye for detail and artistic flair made the event very professional - something I could not have done on my own.  I would not hesitate to use her services in the future and to recommend her to my friends and contacts. Dr Cathy SevcikLesley is a spreadsheet wizard who has enabled me to consolidate and structure a complex assortment of information from a variety of team members on different projects. She gets me the information that I need on time, and in a format that I can work with to move teams forward.
