Leah Willersdorf

An Australian reporter living in the UK since 1995, Leah has been a stenographer for almost 26 years, 22 of which have been providing realtime in all areas of the profession (court, conferences, meetings, interviews, etc).  Leah has covered FiL in 2014 and 2015 and says she finds it THE most inspirational event on her calendar each year.  

Leah says, “My co-worker, Susan, and I were really looking forward to the 2016 event but totally understood the organisers had to take time out to assess the new format.  We can’t wait to see it and play a vital role in it!  We just love when this annual event comes round.  Yes, it is challenging at times with the speed at which people speak, but it can be emotional and highly charged, and we love nothing more than providing live subtitles to enable events like this to be accessible to everyone.  See you mid-October.  Don’t be shy…..come and say hi!”
