Megan Leahy is a Toronto-based freelance publicist and strategy consultant
Specializing in arts and culture, fashion and retail, food and drink, over the last decade I have helped more than 40 brands tell their story to audiences across Canada and beyond.
Whether you lead a small non-profit or are the head of marketing for a global public company, I work with any size of client, available for short-term campaigns or as your national agency of record. A scalable model, I personally manage all strategy and relations, with in-house admin and coordination support, partnering with expert publicists and long-time collaborators when initiatives demand a more robust team.
