Who am I?

Hi. I’m Lesley Kaplan. Good to meet you!

I believe in continually striving to improve, and that a person is never too young or old to develop themselves or learn new skills.  I also believe in positive thinking and how it can see you through any challenge or setback, no matter how large or small. My passion is to assist others in advancing themselves, their processes, to be more motivated and to work more efficiently and productively.

My motto is “Your word is your word”. If you’re commited to a long-term relationship with friends, colleagues & clients who will trust you (which is one of the ways to grow your business) – keep this motto in mind. 

I grew up in Johannesburg, South Africa and have been living in Israel for 30 years. I work with clients across the globe… and would love to work with you too!

For over 34 years I’ve been involved in numerous aspects of the business world – including sales, branding, consulting, training, coaching, promotion & development. Shortly after moving to Israel I founded “L.A.K. Creations & Consulting”, working with clients of all sizes, both within Israel and abroad. “Build your Biz with Lesley Kaplan” is the development, consulting & coaching section within L.A.K.

My focus is on business owners, organizations & companies, in assisting them in moving forward via a combination of strategic planning, consulting, business coaching, training, branded promotional products, as well as workshops on a range of business & self development topics.

I love bringing people together via networking & professional groups I coordinate for English speakers. I’m the founder of the “Build your Biz online Mastermind group”, where we support each other, brainstorm ideas, find solutions to challenges & ensure each member moves closer towards achieving & maintaining their goals.

I assist individuals and groups who are planning a special event or project in creating branded customized products & favors, so it’ll be one to be remembered.

I received my M.A. (Summa Cum Laude) in Industrial & Organizational Psychology (specializing in Coaching & Consulting). This followed my completion of a B.Sc. Degree & numerous courses and diplomas in my field (including Organizational Consulting, ODT Group Facilitation and Personnel Management). 

I love reading non-fiction, watching educational video-clips, music and singing. Many times I can be found humming around the house, without even being aware of it…

I am proud of my wonderful children & grandchildren (yes, I’m a young savta) and try hard to balance my time between my dear clients – many who have become friends over the years – and my growing extended family (who are mostly out of the house).

I also find time to volunteer, despite my busy schedule. I believe one makes time for things that are important to us… And giving back is important to me!
