Amber Leguit has worked as a Senior Consultant at Publyon since September 2019. She advises companies, government bodies and civil society organisations on public affairs as well as corporate communication.
Amber mainly works for clients engaging with the energy transition and circular economy. In collaboration with them, she strives to make a meaningful contribution to achieving climate goals. Amber combines a solid, structured approach with creativity and a ‘can do’ mindset.
Besides advising clients, Amber is responsible for Publyon’s marketing and communication, and so was involved in repositioning our brand. She also introduced the Election Update, among other things.
