Here at Xalient, we have a lot of unsung heroes. That is why we thought it was about time you got to know them all. This month, we have Leanne Buckley in the hotseat.

Job title

Assistant Project Manager

How would you describe your job to a child?

I organise people (myself included) to work as a team and complete big pieces of work that help really big companies be even better at what they do.

What values drive you?

Involvement, being part of a team that is customer focused, enthusiastic and willing to get stuck in and take responsibility. That’s both within project management and the wider team at Xalient – there’s a constant thread that runs through everyone that work here in that they’re passionate about what they do and doing it well.

What are your biggest professional challenges?

I think communication is a key factor in any role, but certainly from my perspective, working in project management and with customers from all across the world, ensuring you communicate clearly and that you’re understood is something I’m always conscious of.

And what do you believe are the biggest challenges within the technology industry?

Good question! It’s an industry that moves at such a fast pace that for me the toughest challenge is how to get across the benefits of all these new and innovative technologies in a way that everyone can understand. I certainly wouldn’t class myself as a “techie” and so I appreciate the art in someone conveying something really technical in a way that’s accessible to anyone.

What do you love the most about working with Xalient?

I absolutely love the team mentality here at Xalient. Everyone understands working towards a shared goal and putting the customer first.

And finally, if you had to use a song to describe your working week, what would it be?

Could you be next in the hotseat?
