 “Dr. Leslie is the epitome of heart and intellect.  She joined the OECS Business Model Competition Team in 2020 as a Coach and Mentor to participants who competed to share US$35,000 in the Sustainable Development Movement (SDM) Pitch Room hosted by Daymond John.  Her work created an environment of c-creation and scaling, as entrepreneurs who benefited directly from her coaching sessions were all finalists and one of them emerged the winner.  She is also a region-builder who cares about the advancement of the business development ecosystem in the Caribbean.  She continues to be a force to be reckoned with.” — Lisa Taylor-Stone, Head – Development Cooperation & Resource Mobilization

Genesis Payment Solutions

“The rubber meets the road, when working with Dr. Leslie at DevSolutions Consulting.  Dr. Leslie was able to inspire, coach and mentor the transition of our financing ideas to reality at Genesis Payment Solutions.  She did this by establishing the foundation and an understanding of equity financing, including valuation of the company and the process involved in fund-raising – explaining concepts in the simplest of terms, yet in ways that encapsulate your company’s ideas, ethos and culture.”
— Alex Straun, CEO
