About Leah Hynes and Naz Murphie:
Leah Hynes and Naz Murphie are the co-founders of The Connection Effect, a movement that is driven to put the human back in connection and the aliveness and energy back into online and in-person communities.
After a successful 10-year career in public relations and community engagement, Leah left her job in 2013 and moved into her mother-in-law’s basement with her husband and three-year-old son so she could focus on growing her business. She is based in Brisbane, Australia, and loves nothing more than hitting the ski slopes with her family and hitting the dance floor to good beats!
Naz has always cared deeply about humans and making a difference — it’s why she joined the police force in 2001. But after 12 years of service, she felt lost and powerless in the system she found herself in, so she decided to transform her role and soon found herself training hundreds of high-level police officers in leadership and employee engagement. Naz is based in Sydney, Australia, and reconnects with herself by being at the beach.
