Gail Leeder

Regional Training Manager (Rest of the World)

Summary

Gail joined the Mango team full time in October 2012 having been on the register since 2007. She is a trainer and also has the glorious title of regional manager for the rest of the world—which really means Asia, Australasia, and the Middle East.

Gail is a qualified management accountant who enjoys sharing knowledge to help people understand where good financial management can help them achieve more. She transferred her skills from the UK manufacturing industry to the NGO world in 2006, and she has worked with a variety of operational NGOs in diverse geographical locations.

Gail is a hiker and wannabe flying trapeze artist just waiting for the right time to runaway to the circus. In the meantime, she is based in Bristol, UK.

Q + A

What is your favorite place you’ve been to, and where do you want to go next?

I’ve travelled to 97 countries, so hard to choose a favourite. But next? Looking forward to trekking in Armenia in June.

Describe your ideal weekend

Saturday brunch (either on my own with a book or with friends) followed by a trip on the Matthew up the River Avon under the Clifton Suspension bridge then some live music in the evening. On Sunday, a 15 mile walk in the hills (in the sun) and a relaxing evening bath.
