Build Community & Supercharge Your Business
Because although on one hand it seems our world is more connected than ever before, the truth is we’ve never felt more isolated, alone and disconnected than we have today.
The reason we show up everyday.
The Connection Effect to teach, coach, share, and mentor others in our unorthodox ‘strategies’, because it became apparent that as a society we have forgotten how to connect with other humans on a level that is sustainable, fulfilling and impactful. And because of that, it’s no surprise that you too may have also been missing the powerful tools, understanding, mindset, and strategies required to facilitate connections that run deep…
communities can thrive and sustain themselves, steadfast connections with influencers are made, and true fulfilment experienced.
Why Connection Matters
Put simply: human beings flourish with a sense of community and connectedness. When we feel like we belong we function at our best and we thrive. We are much more likely to become the fullest expression of our greatest potential. And when you focus on connection: with peers, mentors, your community, industry or even your family, it also means you can make ripple effects in the world far bigger than if you were plugging away in isolation.
Leah is passionate about seeing human beings flourish with a sense of community and connectedness. As she says, ‘When we feel like we belong we function at our best and we thrive. We are much more likely to become the fullest expression of our greatest potential.’
A powerful communicator, experienced community engagement consultant, group and teams facilitator, event magician, licensed NLP Meta Coach, speaker and writer, Leah is based in Brisbane, Australia and loves nothing more than hitting the ski slopes with her family closely followed by hitting the dancefloor to good beats!

We all need support from someone else at some point in our lives. Mentoring is one of the best ways to change a person’s life – and it’s incredibly rewarding.
Volunteer mentors make a difference to individuals and the community
Over the last 15 years, we’ve seen how powerful volunteer mentors can be. Mentoring works because everyone’s different. And through one-to-one support, every individual’s needs can be addressed. Multiply that by 10, 50, a hundred people, and you create change – not only in individuals but also in the community.
Inspiring young people to help their communities
We believe that great volunteering can transform the lives of both volunteers and beneficiaries by building stronger, happier and more inclusive communities.
You’ll be surprised at the impact a single volunteering day can have on your employees, your business and your local community.

a ‘life-changing’ experience
What do you think others may enjoy it, learn from it or contribute?
By human nature most people like to contribute and see an end result.
I think if people came out to volunteer more and could see that their input helped make an event run more smoothly, they would feel they’d achieved something personally.
There is a bit of a feel-good factor
when you think of the difference you are making
I felt a real sense of pride and achievement.
Volunteering at The MoonWalk Scotland is inspirational, exciting, worthwhile, and good fun
we all have a social responsibility to help others in our communities, and befriending is just one way in which I can manifest this duty – whilst having fun at the same time!
They were all working together as a team, almost like a family.
also felt that my contribution was making a small difference to helping to get people
I would recommend volunteering with HES to anyone as it’s really enjoyable and rewarding
is what spurred me on to want to help someone else
Deciding to befriend was undoubtedly one of the best decisions I have ever made – we both get so much out of it
I would recommend befriending to anyone – even if they are feeling apprehensive like I was – as the benefits to the person you are matched with and yourself are endless.
In Mark’s experience, volunteers get a lot by giving a little…
My motivation behind volunteering is mainly because I see it as a sort of exchange, which may sound weird but kinda makes sense hopefully!
You’re also exchanging life experiences, when with the Kiltwalk you’re amongst like-minded people who want to help and make a difference, who you can both learn from and come away from being inspired and energised no matter how long the day. You’re also passing on your skills and knowledge to help others; the Kiltwalk organisers use your strengths to help their weak points so to speak, so it’s a “win win” situation. You’re surrounded by and learning from others just like you
I enjoy challenging tasks and look for chances to step up to the next level. Kiltwalk, and volunteering in general provides me with interesting and challenging activities as well as placing me in direct contact with the people who benefit from my volunteering. All it takes to put a smile on my face is a “thank you”!
Kiltwalk is here to fulfill their mission of providing support for Scotland’s children, yet the flipside of the Kiltwalk is that they are also enhancing the lives of the volunteers who help carry forward their mission, and that is why I will be continuing to volunteer at all the Kiltwalks this year and into the far future!
we’ll be celebrating the opportunities and development that guiding brings to girls all over the world.
As a person in the last year, I have grown massively in confidence and self belief. I believe that my role in Brownies has accelerated this. Meeting so many fantastic, supportive and inspiring people along the way is just another bonus!
There’s a universal willingness to help others. Scotland’s pledge in recognition of this should be; “I will enable, empower and support young people to volunteer.”
The stories young people share about their volunteering has 3 main elements at play; making a meaningful difference, new experiences, and meeting people and making friends.
Yes, of course there is work to do, but it’s the relationships that count.
Volunteering at its best is friendly, uplifting and rewarding. Yes you’ll discover learning, skills, and stories to tell to a potential employer.
The volunteering heartbeat is about solidarity.
What if we talked about the values that underpin our volunteering more than it’s worthiness? There’s a movement in economic development for a mindset shift away from GDP to human needs. This is recognising that there is a human need to give. It’s what makes us human. Volunteering is simply one of the best ways of meeting our need to give, and at the same time to gain by meeting our mutual needs.
This seems to chime with the extraordinary willingness of young people to volunteer.
there remains a massive untapped human potential.
