Leonard specialises in management development, project management and personal effectiveness.
Leonard has more than 10 years’ experience in training, operations, people, and project management in the public sector in Singapore. Before joining =mc, he was a senior naval officer, specialising in training teams for operational effectiveness.
I have been working with individuals from Sarcoma UK, Solent Mind and Sense, helping them to think about their projects, and introducing them to the =mc’s way of project scoping. That, along with the other practical tools and techniques from our Project Management programme, helps make projects feel less daunting and ensures successful outcomes.
In the next few weeks, I’ll be delivering Managing Multiple Priorities to Reprieve, Sheffield Wildlife Trust and UNICEF UK. I particularly enjoy this programme as it provides tools and tips on how to deal with a heavy workload and procrastination. I am using these tools daily and finding them helpful in situations when everything feels like a priority.
I’m also looking forward to deliver management training for new or soon-to-be managers in our Emerging Managers Programme. During the programme, we’ll help people understand their own management styles in order to help them gain confidence in managing themselves and their teams. If that is something you are interested in, I recommend joining me on our next Emerging Managers public programme in November.
Prior to working in =mc, I was in various management roles in the Singapore Navy and managed small teams of 3 to larger teams of 25, in areas such as training, communications and operations. My work in those areas provided me with a great foundation in managing people, delivering training and motivating teams.
Back in Singapore, I volunteered with Action for AIDS, where I administered anonymous HIV tests and provided sexual health advice, to support their mission of ending HIV transmission in Singapore. These days, you can find me in a British Heart Foundation shop, manning the till or preparing donated items to raise funds for life saving research. I joined =mc because their mission of ‘Learning that leads to greater social good’ strongly resonates with me.
Outside of volunteering, I am also an Oxford Imp, an improv comedy troupe that entertains audience with unscripted comedy and games. As an improviser, I strive to create a safe and collaborative space for everyone to have fun and thrive in. As a learning and development consultant, I will bring that same energy to create a fun, learning environment for all participants. See you on our next programme!Contact Leonard Ho
