Thank you to all our delegates, speakers, sponsors and supporters who made AMA conference 2018 — The Power of Play a huge success. See you next year!

We’re going to leave this content up for a while and will be following up with recorded content very shortly (thanks to Pilot Theatre).


Play is about responding to challenge, replacing isolation with collaboration, embracing risk, and experimenting. If play became central to our work, what would our organisations look like and what could we achieve?

At AMA conference 2018, we want to launch ourselves into the realm of exploration and ask ourselves, ‘can we afford not to put play first?’.
