Renee Leduc is the Founder and Principal of Narayan Strategy. She brings more than 20 years of experience in government, research and the private sector to her work helping clients connect with their most important audiences on highly technical topics – across sectors, governments, cultures and political lines.
Renee’s career has spanned sectors, environments and time zones – giving her a unique niche to help your business cut through the details and the jargon to connect with the most important decision makers to advance your business and goals. Renée is comfortable working with you in numerous environments – from Capitol Hill or a regulatory agency in Washington, DC, to a project site in rural Kenya or an international meeting in Bangkok, or virtually – and anywhere in between.
Renee’s experience using space technology to build understanding of environmental issues began more than 20 years ago in Botswana when she worked with rural leaders to use Landsat satellite data to track land changes due to large elephant herds. Her passion for science and technology as tools to advance sustainable development later grew as a Fulbright research scholar working on climate adaptation projects with women in Malawi and Zimbabwe.
Renee is an active member of the American Meteorological Society (AMS), serving on its Committee on Radio Frequency Allocation, the Committee on International Affairs and the Board on Enterprise Economic Development.

First, in managing the weather community’s response to critical spectrum issues with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in 2017; Second in 2021 for her leadership connecting the weather enterprise and the international community in the work of AMS.
