We know what you're thinking. So how exactly do you pronounce Leiho? Here’s how we say it and what the meaning behind the name is.
Leiho means 'how are you' in Cantonese and sometimes that's all we need to ask someone to show that we care.
MEET THE PEOPLE BEHIND THE BRAND
Joey Li - CEO & Co-Founder
We often get caught up in our busy lives and forget to be kind to ourselves or take time off to do something good for someone else. You feel good when you do good and when we do good, it’s all of our kindness and compassion put together that really makes a positive difference in the world. I hope Leiho inspires people to deliver more acts of kindness because at the end of the day, we're not only helping someone in need but we're actually improving our own wellbeing and self worth too.
Thuta Khin - COO & Co-Founder
Originally from Myanmar, I’ve had experience in working with NGOs to fight poverty in underdeveloped regions. I believe that there is room for everyone to make a difference in this world with a simple act of kindness, no matter how big or small. Through Leiho, I hope to inspire people to be creative in the way they give back to their local communities!
Calum Hill - Head of Brand Development
I think where we can do good, we should do good. I suppose up until now the high majority of my work life hasn’t included this as much as I’d like, it’s important to feel like your work has a purpose and with Leiho I feel like my work can also have a positive impact and provide support to those in need of it. My background in journalism, marketing, and voluntary work has always provided me with more happiness when the message is positive and the work is meaningful. It’s exciting to see that more and more businesses are setting a positive example and with Leiho I really look forward to the future work and positive messages that we can share.
Isabella Hayward - Marketing & Events Executive
Through small acts of kindness, we can contribute to community on a deeper level. Leiho is a breath of fresh air, a pioneering brand with the kindest heart. I’m so excited to be part of the team, drawing from my eclectic background in performance, events, marketing and high-end retail, helping to grow Leiho’s Do Good Feel Great events and the brand. It’s a perfect complement to my work as an actor and yoga teacher. Spending over 5 years in the theatre and film world across the UK and Europe, I've seen where events and culture can add great value to communities. In bringing education and awareness to our events, we hope to inspire, empower and connect like-minded people. To start conversations and creatively support a kind and compassionate way of life.
