We couldn't do it without them

The BATForce Staff

Leigh

Leigh Bartlett

Executive Officer

Leigh got her start in education, before working a range of roles in disability, local government and has even had a stint in the private sector. Ultimately it was Leigh's passion towards improving the opportunities of young people in the Geelong community that led her to her work with BATForce. Working with BATForce allows Leigh to focus on improving the opportunities for young people and their communities.

On working with young people and the organisations that support them in the Greater Geelong region, Leigh emphasised that "We have a rich culture of youth agencies in the region and some very talented workers - I'm excited to be part of this."

Stephen Keane

Marketing Coordinator

Stephen has extensive marketing expertise across a range of industries in both B2C and B2B markets. A digital marketing and copy specialist, Stephen has found that working for the not-for-profit sector within the Greater Geelong Community is rewarding and fulfilling in ways not common to other marketing roles.

When he's not strategising and executing a BATForce marketing campaign, Stephen loves skiing, playing the guitar and walking his dog Max at Ocean Grove Main Beach.
