Leandri Smith

Director, The Mail Room Communications

Leandri is a public relations consultant with extensive experience in helping business professionals strengthen their brands, build credibility and raise awareness of business initiatives and successes in creative ways. She studied public relations and communications at the Tshwane University of Technology in South Africa. With more than a decade experience in the fast paced agency environment, Leandri has a sharp focus on adding value and maximising return on investment. She founded a boutique South African PR agency in 2006 and sold it in 2011 to relocate to New Zealand.

Her passion is helping business professionals tell their stories and share business success in compelling ways through traditional and modern communication channels. By engaging audiences, Leandri works to support new business drives, customer loyalty and staff support. Public relations can be perceived as complex and is often misunderstood; addressing this challenge, Leandri started The Mail Room in 2015 to help businesses take advantage of the power of public relations to influence, educate and inform their audiences in smart ways that won’t break the bank.

In addition to being an enthusiastic public relations consultant, Leandri is a wife and mum of two, loves playing netball, traveling, festivities, good food, friends and music.
