The Team

Our Coaching Collective

  • Stewart Bewley
    Stewart Bewley Founder and CEO

    Stewart founded Amplify back in 2011 from an acting background, believing that if you unlocked people’s voices you would unlock their story and their businesses would thrive. To date he has coached more than 10,000 people, having Microsoft, Google, PWC, KPMG, Dow Jones, Hitachi, o2, BASF, Barclays and Virgin amongst his clients. He has helped 500 Startups to raise over $3.5bn dollars in seed funding and Series A, and works with Senior Executives from Siemens, SAP, GE, Microsoft, PWC, Microsoft, Ford, Legal & General and Edelman. He loves to travel and embrace all that life throws at him. That hugely varies, from Bollywood dancing with Microsoft Graduates in Hyderabad, India to coaching ex-Nasa Rocket scientists in the US, Florida about to pitch to Steve Case, founder of AOL! Stewart has an uncanny knack to see the person in front of him, listen to and absorb their story, re-tell it and coach them to amplify it beyond the realms of what they thought possible. He is also a big fan of flat whites, a deeply enthusiastic husband and father and keen musician.

  • Steve Morris

Since working for Amplify he has coached startups in Wayra in London, Rlabs in Capetown, Startup Bootcamp in Dubai, Rainmaking innovation in Copenhagen, Imperial Labs at Imperial University London, LSBU and City University. He is a brilliant story-teller and won’t let his clients leave a coaching session until they have theirs! He is also our COO as he knows how to take Stewart’s vision and make it a reality. Alongside all of this he is a preferred partner of Heartstyles – a tool for teams and individuals that measures how successfully they communicate their story.

He has spent years role playing for lawyers, psychiatrists and in the corporate world for Conocco Phillips, bringing challenge and coaching to his clients, making sure they land their pitch. His acute ability to understand the human condition means his insight is quick and cuts straight to the heart of the matter, whilst also being deeply kind. He has trained in comedy, standup, Shakespeare – he knows how to bring a story from the text and move the audience to action! He is a bit of a find and we are thrilled that he has joined the Amplify Tribe. Stephen is also a very proud husband and father, now working with his other passion… technology. His next mission is to buy a Brompton bike, the dream!
