SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGER & MORE
Champion of social media tools and technologies. I have an excellent online reputation throughout the Oklahoma City community and am well connected.

My Leslie A. Spears Kolbe Index result shows I am terrific at stepping into tough situations and concocting daring solutions. You lead the way out of dilemmas as you blaze uncharted trails and improvise inventions until you get them working. I work great with detailed-oriented people that often to reflect a strong, outgoing personality but appreciate it. I know exactly what I’m great at doing and who I work best with however I do like challenges. I also believe in total honesty so you can know upfront how I work.

If you are looking for a consumate professional; an enthusiastic voice with fresh ideas that work; and someone who is a pure pleasure to know and work with, you’d better hire Leslie Spears as your social media consultant asap! In my recent, very successful race for Oklahoma County Court Clerk, Leslie forged new ground in the social media/political realm that made a real difference. Leslie immediately absorbed the nuances of political races and then brought her vast experience to bear to help produce a big win on election night. She can bring the same talents to you for your project or business. The good news: Leslie has decided to expand her business. Do yourself a favor and engage Leslie; her book will be filling up fast!

Charles H. Van Rysselberge, CCE, IOM
(Retired Chamber Executive from Shreveport, LA, OKC, Atlanta, GA, Charleston, SC, etc.)
In the 1990’s, I had the good fortune to have Leslie Spears on my staff at the Greater OKC Chamber of Commerce. She played a key role in our communications department where she handled the newsletter, photography, graphics and other related activities. She was always cheerful, fun to be around, willingly accepted new projects, performed in a professional manner, could always be counted on to be a team player! With enthusiasm, I would recommend Leslie to anyone…for volunteer work, a future employer for her skills or client for her business!

Ashley Barcum
Director of Communications, OETA-The Oklahoma Network
“Leslie is one of the most passionate, dedicated communications professionals that I have ever worked with. Her enthusiasm, energy, creativity and expertise have ensured success for every project we’ve partnered on. Her grasp and promotional skill with social media and community relations is exceptional. She not only cares about her work, but also the people involved. I would embrace any opportunity to work with Leslie Spears.”

Melvin Burch
Regional Trust Administrator at Office of Special Trustee for American Indians,
Albuquerque, New Mexico Area
“I know Leslie from the time I was a member and officer of the board of directors for the Oklahoma City Art Museum. She is a key reason that the Museum was able to move from a loaned building at the Oklahoma City Fairgrounds to a new multistory building in Downtown Oklahoma City. She is highly skilled in public relations and communication management. She brings high intensity and excitement to any project that she undertakes. I can endorse Leslie with no hesitation…..she is terrific!”
