Get ready for adventure!

Here to help you put your best foot forward, and share what keeps us all going. It’s about the journey, not the destination — and with AMA in your travelling party, we’re here to keep you going. Here you can:

  • Provoke your thinking with our prompts and downloadable templates
  • Recapture and reflect on what gives you satisfaction and joy in your work
  • Share your thoughts, photos, ideas, podcasts — and help us keep sharing inspiration, ideas and top tips!

If you’ve got something you’d like to share with us, contact jemma@a-m-a.co.uk

We’ll be sharing more in the run up to AMA Conference.

Prompt: Put some happy in your adventure…

Being adventurous should be fun. A 2015 study by the University of Warwick’s Centre for Competitive Advantage in the Global Economy showed people who were happier at work are on average 12% more productive. What makes you happy at work? How do you pack some fun into your professional life?

“Our team all work remotely, so I really appreciate that we have regular social time built into our calendars. It helps build relationships and also generates new perspectives from talking to people outside my immediate team. Also we laugh a lot!”

Prompt: Take a moment out to think about your journey

So life can feel a bit like a constant hamster-wheel of activity… but it’s important to lift your head up now and again and check where you are, where you want to be, and how you’re going to get there. Adventures don’t always follow the plan, but that can be okay…
