Hire / Book Alexander Leibner Business Speaker, MC and Facilitator
Ever had that feeling if you’ve known someone you’ve just met for years? Ever had a knowledgeable, humorous and memorable dinner party guest? Then you’ve probably met Alexander Leibner.
Alexander has spent the last 10-years working in the dynamic world of media both in the limelight and behind the camera with experience in Radio, Television and Print. He received the President’s Award from former president Nelson Mandela and TRH’s the Earl & Countess of Wessex whilst in Matric.
Alexander has a Bachelor Of Communication majoring in Marketing & Advertising from Bond University in Australia and Post Graduate in Business Administration from The Gordon Institute of Business Science in South Africa.
Of his time in the media, Alexander says, “I always loved the media. As a kid I remember interviewing shoppers at a local Department Store with my home made CNN Camera. Once I left school I started working in Talk Radio as a producer, moved on to present youth programming on television, act in South Africa’s biggest daily soapie, produced and gave my creative input into television shows on a variety of channels, wrote for some great publications and websites and eventually moved into a senior marketing management position to understand all facets of a media business. I’ve been blessed with seeing and experiencing things a normal office job just does not offer. I did this for ten years and then left to pursue my bliss of writing, speaking, and developing my own businesses and brands.”
Alexander’s thirst for knowledge combined with his years of media exposure and experience allow him to talk to a wide range of audiences. His aptitude to swiftly grasp different industries and integrate his pre-existing knowledge into a very relevant and bespoke presentation is what sets Alexander apart. He has spoken at The IMM Graduate School of Marketing, Vega School of Brand Communication, Rhodes University and DISCOP Nairobi Marketplace to name a few. Alexander Leibner is flexible, energetic with a good sense of humour and is willing to create a talk that is fitting for any audience.
He has also had extensive MC experience, hosting debates and facilitating forums, with a particular interest in Technology, Travel and Business.
Powered by his entrepreneurial spirit, his ‘out-of-the-box’ thinking is most popular with the projects and people he has worked with, always looking for that something different or unusual. He is often asked about his English accent, which is due to overexposure of Postman Pat at a young age. He is fluent in German, English and Afrikaans with aspirations to resurrect his years of French at school.
His parents are of German and Austrian origin, who much like Beckham’s mom and Oprah’s dad are retired hairdressers having run their own business for over 40 years.
