Katie - I am passionate about communities, culture and effective collaboration.

I have been involved in community consultation since the age of 14 as a member of the Youth Issues sub-committee in Bury, where I designed the first Consult Us More youth strategy which is still used in the borough. I was also part of the Investment In Youth team who were successful in attracting funding for the design, build and management of a new drop-in centre in a local park. In recognition of this and my charity work I was voted Greater Manchester Police Young Citizen of the Year in 1996.

My experience of media content production teams and an MA in Digital Media Management combine to inform my understanding of traditional and digital media communication and leadership. My strategic vision and values driven standards guide everything I do. With amity my natural understanding of process, my involvement, devotion and constant questioning help me lead teams to high performance. 

I bring a passion for human-centred analytical and divergent thinking, as well as a love of facilitation and sharing to the delivery of work which I view as an opportunity for everyone to learn. I loves helping others and improving lives.

María - I love co-creating safe spaces for people to transform, connect with their creative potential and live life to the fullest.

At amity I enable people to collaborate, participate fully in life and remember who they truly are.

I design processes and guide teams through transformational experiences where innovative solutions, change and collaboration can thrive.

People that participate in our processes learn to solve challenges creatively, receive one to one coaching and are upskilled in facilitative leadership, leaving them ready to lead ongoing change.

I light up when supporting individuals and groups to unlock their potential, be leaders of their own life and affect change around them.

I am passionate about wellbeing, transformation and learning. I love having conversations about what matters to people and spending time in nature playing with my dog Metta.
