Leigh Stevenson, Business and Creative Director, is a specialist in cultural enterprise revenue generation. As a Canadian with over 20 years working in North America and Europe, Leigh has created and developed world-class commercial revenue streams for cultural institutions as well as for the high street. In particular – this has been demonstrated by her 7 year role as General Manager of the National Galleries of Scotland’s Trading Company where she and a great team developed highly regarded and profitable activities in retail, catering and new publishing policies.
