Leesa McDermott

Leesa is a born and bred Tassie girl who grew up wanting to see the world and still lives to travel.  She moved to Sydney in the mid-90s after completing her combined Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Laws at the University of Tasmania and then to London just before the new millennium, returning to Hobart in 2009.

Living in London, Leesa seized any opportunity to travel while also working in corporate management roles.  On her return to Australia, Leesa worked in Federal Government before joining Conference Design in 2011.  In mid-2015 she took a management role with Business Events Tasmania before returning to Conference Design in July 2018.  

Leesa has a wealth of conference management and general management experience.   She is committed to our clients and our conferences and will go the extra mile to ensure a successful event.  She attends to the important details with a calm and common-sense approach, leaving the committee free to focus on the program and content.

Leesa is a fur mother to Louie the labradoodle and lover of all things Tasmanian, but especially Tassie gins and wines!
