Lesley Bell Consultant

Making clever solutions work for your business

For over two decades, through the development of time-saving processes and programs, I've specialized in improving productivity and retention. Having graduated with high honours in Human Resource Management, I have excelled in the professional resource field at both a national law firm and a litigation boutique. My experiences vary from organizing the Gale Cup Moot for six years, assisting in the creation of a reading program in area elementary schools, and volunteering on the board of a local-artisans group.
My husband and I have two children, have resided in Georgetown for close to 30 years, and when we are not around town, we can be found relaxing at our cottage.
The driving force in my personal and professional life has always been people. It is that which ensures not to define myself by what I do, but rather, by what I deliver - results which enrich your firm's value to its clients and employees.

I recommend Lesley without hesitation. When I was a new lawyer, Lesley was a thoughtful and helpful director of associate programs at the firm where we worked. Later, I had the pleasure of continuing to work with Lesley when she was the primary planner behind a national law school moot. She is always the most organized and prepared person in the room.
