The Team

Whether it’s coaching you, your team, your company,  designing your slides or producing a video, we have a tribe of brilliant people to match your needs.

  • 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. We call this ‘The Science behind the story’ and we can’t wait to bring this to our clients. He is a lover of good coffee, a husband and father and staunch Arsenal fan.
