I thought Leah was a fantastic representative of Ovation. She practices what she preaches, meaning that she was a very effective presenter! Also, just got the speaker scores back, and my session scored the second highest of all the interactive sessions at WPC! I am very happy...

Follow Leah on Twitter: @LeahDarbyOC

Leah made her professional stage debut at the age of thirteen when she literally stumbled upon the art of “clogging” and was cast in a production of Big River.  Since then, some of her favorite performances include 42nd Street, Crazy For You, Annie, Disneyʼs Beauty and the Beast, and The Laramie Project.  Leah also had the honor of representing her home state of Kansas in the 2000 Miss America Pageant. She traveled nationally speaking as a mental health advocate. Partnering with Eli Lilly and Co., she appeared in a national education campaign, webcasts, satellite media tour and even on The Today Show. Her work was also published n the National Mental Health Associationʼs newsletter, The Bell.  She's a graduate of Oklahoma City University, and a member of Actors' Equity Association.

 

What is your favorite moment in the training room?

My favorite moment is the “light bulb moment” for someone; that moment where they “get it” and see how the new idea will help them move towards their goal. The “light bulb” goes on above their head, and a smile comes across their face.

What’s one thing you wish the business world would borrow from the acting world?

I wish the business world would listen as openly and intensely as we do in our craft.

Who are your favorite actors?

I have so many! But I love Marion Cotillard, Cate Blanchett, and Benedict Cumberbatch.

What’s the sports team you give your all for?

I’m a die-hard Kansas City Royals fan.

What can’t you start your day without?

Coffee. Seriously.
