Book Leslie for Your Next Event



With her energy, engaging wit and common sense approach, Leslie has won over audiences from coast-to-coast.  As the founder of Order Out of Chaos, a coaching and consulting firm specializing in chronic disorganization and time management issues; Leslie brings more than a decade’s worth of professional experience working one-on-one with her clients to her speaking engagements.  Known for her content-rich and interactive presentations, she uses her “Tales from the Trenches” and trademark “Triple T’s” (tips, tools and techniques), to untangle such complex, complicated and emotionally-charged subjects as Kicking Procrastination to the Curb, Time Management Skills for Teens or Living in a “Clutter Culture” to name a few.  Whether making a keynote address, leading a workshop or moderating a panel, members of parent and professional groups, associations and companies all come away from Leslie’s appearances better equipped to understand and meet the challenges confronting them.

“Better that expected – useful and thought provoking, concrete ideas I can take to my clients.”

“I was not planning on coming tonight but I am very glad I did. Leslie was terrific!”

“The presentation was above and beyond my expectations!”

“Just got home from attending your presentation and I must say you are amazing! Your energy, passion and love of what you do was truly present tonight. And for a Wednesday evening, 7-9 event, I walked out energized and excited about what I learned! As a mom of an 8 year old boy and 12 year old girl, who are like night and day, I’m excited to use some of the strategies I learned tonight with my son. I look forward to browsing your website and listening to future webinars. And a special thanks to Sherri from The Spotted Zebra for bringing you to Albany!”
