Before joining Amplify, Ginny was lead coach for Resurgo, a charity that sees 75% of disadvantaged youth find successful employment. She is pure gold and getting her on the team was like Real Madrid getting Ronaldo on theirs – a game changer! Since coming onboard she has coached at PWC, Microsoft, Techstars North, CyLon Accelerator, Winton Ventures, Startup Bootcamp Internet of Things, Startup Bootcamp InsureTech, Startups WiseGuys Latvia, Estonia. Whilst Stewart builds the brand globally, Ginny is scaling us in Europe. Her passion to see her clients expressing themselves freely and creatively is fuelled by her training as an actor. She is highly intuitive and excellent at listening, which is invaluable to our clients and to Stewart’s need to outwardly process!
Since the age of 8, Dan has been drumming his way through the world, literally. From accompanying his gospel singer/songwriter father over the continents to breaking and setting new Guiness World Records, wherever Dan goes he makes the the world a little bit brighter. Dan uses his passion to teach and drum to unleash people’s creativity in a way never quite seen before! He is very very kind and patient and a wonder to be in the room with. If life is a story and the orchestra is inside our head, Dan helps us find your story, clean up the orchestra and shows us the unique rhythm that we bring to the world. His performances range from studio recording with the band mates of Sting, Eric Clapton and George Michael to performances at the Royal Albert Hall, The Jazz Cafe in Camden and Union Chapel. We are so excited to have him on board at Amplify.
THE LEADERSHIP GURU
Marcus started out life in T-Mobile with the title “Business Change Manager” and has not stopped changing businesses since! His years as Executive Development Manager at Telefonica and Lead coach at Wayra (Telefonica’s Accelerator) were the coals to the furnace of his passion for developing leaders in every sector of business. When he started his own company in 2014, he met with Stewart to discuss collaboration. By the end of 2015 they had co-designed and delivered workshops for Microsoft all over the world, from Brasil to India! He is perceptive, kind, challenging, deeply caring and utterly brilliant at bringing the leader out of the individual and ultimately the business. He is a foodie, father, husband and lover of all things that connect us as humans!
THE AWESOME SUPPORTER
Tim joined Amplify in 2015 when it was going global and needed to scale! He delivered as lead coach for MSVentures, Ignite, CRL, alongside Startup Bootcamp, Rainmaking Innovation and KPMG. From an acting and directing background, he has an incredible ability to read the room and know exactly what the client needs. He loves seeing transformation in his clients – seeing people walk out of the room a better version of themselves. Tim now works for G&S Comms as a Communications Coach and we are so proud to have had him as part of the family.
