Meet Leigh

CEO & Founder


After over 20 years in healthcare, business and education,  I went out on my own to build Bold Industries Group, a conglomerate organization that encompasses my passion for tackling big challenges that when solved, make the world a better place. My mission is to help leaders solve problems for good.

With a MHA, MEd, and MA, I'm an executive with deep experience in project management, communications, new business and technology initiatives, and I am committed to helping you take big swings of bold, so you and your organization can thrive. 

"Being bold is owning your greatness and knowing you are the one to drive the changes needed, define the path, and create the map for your dreams."

Leigh Burgess is a tenacious and trailblazing entrepreneur who has earned her reputation as a game-changer within her industry. As the founder and CEO of her own company, Leigh has leveraged her innovative spirit, keen business acumen, and relentless drive for success to not only grow the venture into a multi-seven-figure sales operation within the first two years but also to impact the lives of countless professionals and entrepreneurs.

After 20+ years working in healthcare and education, Leigh is now using her skills and gifts in new and innovative ways. In 2020, she founded and launched Bold Industries Group, Inc. (BIG). BIG is a corporation that encompasses her passion for business consulting, coaching, and curated events. She is also a regular contributor to Forbes, Fast Company, and Entrepreneur and has been honored as one of Success Magazine’s 125 Leaders Making a Difference. 

Recognized for her groundbreaking approach to personal and organizational performance, Leigh harnesses the power of strategy, mindset, and wellness to achieve optimal results. This unique blend of elements forms the cornerstone of her signature B.O.L.D. Framework and her upcoming book, The Bold Performance Formula, soon to hit the shelves.
With the intention of amplifying the bold journeys of others, Leigh launched The Bold Lounge, a successful podcast that explores diverse topics related to leadership, innovation, and the pursuit of a bold life. Additionally, she imparts valuable wisdom and advice through her thought-provoking speaking engagements that span a range of topics, from embracing boldness and the power of saying yes, to navigating opportunity and maximizing the impact of effective leadership.
Leigh is a true catalyst for change. By hosting signature events such as The Bold Table and The Bold Retreat, she creates a nurturing and empowering space for attendees to share their experiences and forge lasting connections. Through these events, she cultivates a vibrant community of individuals, each member rising to the challenge of carving out their bold path and actively supporting one another in the process.
