Every year we see hundreds of people attend AMA conference. Some delegates come with their colleagues and find real value in experiencing the conference together.
We know lots of members are regular conference attenders, but one member always brings his team with him. We caught up with Curtis Fulcher, Head of Communications at The Courtyard, Hereford to find out why he brings his team to conference every year.
“AMA conference is the main bit of training for us each year. I think it’s important we set aside the time and budget for us all to attend. I find funding to make this happen. You get so much in such a short space of time, it’s the best way for us to learn as much as possible.
It’s a great way to catch up with others in the sector who you might have engaged with throughout your career. It’s also a great way to meet new contacts.
We attend different sessions and then feedback to each other. The journey back home after conference always includes a conversation about the one thing each person is going to instigate when we get back.
The AMA conference is also a time for my team to socialise away from work. I’m not the big bad boss, I can let my hair down. Last year we ended up in a karaoke bar!”
This year’s AMA conference — The Power of Play is in Liverpool on 24-26 July.
