Leah Nduati - Lee studied for a Higher Diploma in Information Management at Strathmore University and went on to study Economics and Communications at the University of Nairobi.
Upon completion, she joined Ogilvy and Mather East Africa in Nairobi. After a short stint there, a client at Ogilvy and Mather - Globak Media Alliance, hired her to set-up and head Cinema Advertising in their newly opened cinemas in Ghana. She moved to Ghana in 2009.
After her time at Global Media Alliance, she started her own media management company - Bold Media. She consulted with several clients helping them achieve their media goals. Some of her clients include The Accra Polo CLub, Phillips, KFC, Vodafone, Land Rover, Ghana, SRI EMAS, AKSA and Ministry of Agriculture Kenya.
In 2015, Leah and her partner co founded the Kenya Trade Expo in Ghana having seen numerous opportunities that existed between the two countries. Since its founding, the Kenya Trade Expo in Ghana, other African countries and businesseshave approached the founders in the hope that they can facilitate business linkages and trade connections. This led to the birth of the organization Intra Africa Connect which is committed to enhancing Intra Africa trade.
Leah enjoys swimming, reading and spending time with her family. She continues to consult in media and advertising while she works promoting Intra Africa trade.
