Richard Loat A visionary leader and one of Canada's youngest executives Richard Loat is a life long learner who has channeled his passion and drive for helping others as he founded Five Hole for Food, a Canadian non-profit organization. One of the fastest-growing non-profit organizations in the game, Five Hole for Food travels across the country every summer with taped sticks, hockey nets and a goal of generating food donations through the game of hockey. In just three years, their rapid growth has resulted in over half a million pounds (500,000 LBS) of donated food for food banks across Canada all by harnessing the power and potential of social media.
Katie Jeanes I'm a glass half full kind of person with a passion for doing good and activating change. With A Little More Good, I like helping social ventures use the internet and social media to connect with their tribe in innovative and fun ways. I create and implement digital strategies for values based businesses and coach entrepreneurs to develop their social media skills and feel confident representing their brands online.
Crystal Henrickson I'm all about the one-on-one connections that build momentum and drive change. Formerly leading the Community and Marketing charge for Yelp Canada, I can now be found helping startups like Chimp - The Charitable Impact Foundation empower donors to manage and amplify their charitable impact. We use using social media as a tool to discover, introduce and strengthen relationships as we cultivate a number of communities. @chimpfund Personal: @marketing_girl

When & Where
Similar to MeetUps or TweetUps, HootUps are casual, free events organized by HootSuite users around the world. These events are a great opportunity for HootSuite users to bridge their online and offline worlds.
Attendees share experiences, network, discuss social media best practices, and get some HootSuite swag in a fun and relaxed environment. As an organizer, it’s a great way to draw attention to the unique ways you use social media both personally and professionally. HootUps are organized by you, the fans and users, and although not directly coordinated by HootSuite, we provide support to organizers with advice, promotion, and swag.
