Katie Leeman
Founder and Principal

Leeman Communications Collaborative was founded in 2011 to help organizations of all shapes and sizes communicate more strategically and more creatively with their intended audiences.

Simply put, we are obsessed with communication. Whether it's your customer/brand communications, your diversity & inclusion communication, your internal organizational communication, or your person-to-person communication, we can tackle it all -- starting with research and assessment. 

Over the 20-year course of her career, Katie has worked extensively in brand communication and communication trainings with multi-national financial institutions, high-tech brands, consumer packaged goods companies, biotech companies, insurance companies, large arts organizations, independent schools & universities, non-profits, and many more. 

 

Katie often works in partnership with Simons Marketing on brand assessment and strategy for professional service companies. 

Katie has also spent over 15 years as an improv comedian, performing in and directing over 800 shows with ImprovBoston and at other improv theaters around the country. She has taught improv comedy and business communication at Trinity Repertory Company and maintains a private studio of professionals with whom she works on public speaking and interpersonal communication skills.

Katie holds a BA in Theatre from Ithaca College and an MBA with concentrations in Marketing and Organizational Behavior from Boston University Questrom School of Business. She also holds a certificate in Mediation & Conflict Management from the Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School. And currently, she is back in school again at Boston University School of Social Work getting a Master's degree in Social Work (MSW) to bring a clinical approach to her communications work. 

In her spare time, she’s an avid weightlifter and musician, and is often found playing elaborate games of pretend with her four year old son.
