Our panelists

Leah Gregg is a creative instigator and visual storyteller. Currently you’ll find her working in the wild world of advertising as Content and Community Manager at Rethink.

For the previous five years, she was on the Communications team at Union Gospel Mission where she broadcasted stories about love and redemption from the poorest postal code in Canada using social media and photography. Two highlights from her time at UGM include; co-founding PHOTO 101, a photography workshop for people working through alcohol and drug recovery and #HAWAction, an awareness campaign she managed for last year’s Homelessness Action Week.
If you were posting Leah to Instagram, you’d tag her with #Photog #Runner #ChocolateLover #BigFeet #BigHeart. She totally tumbles, tweets, and contributes to many other areas of the social web. You’ll find all those links here.

Theodora Lamb‘s  passion for non-profit organizations led her to the web where she helps to strengthen online communities. She works with several organizations as an online community manager. Her background in radio and television allows her to bridge her passion for storytelling, media and the web and when she can, she loves to write about redheads on her blog, GingerAiling.com




Lima Al-Azzeh is the Community Manager for Eat St., where she has finally managed to incorporate her skills for communication with her lifelong pursuit of finding the best food the world has to offer. Previously, Lima served as the associate editor for Suite101.com and has been published in several print and online magazines.
