Meet the Creative Team
Behind our amplifi influencers programme is an amazing group of young creatives. From video production to copywriting and graphic design, our creative team have been alongside us delivering a range of inspiring workshops and have been working side by side with our influencers creating fun, engaging and relatable content for young people.
Our special thanks to The Digital Nomad Project for their support throughout the amplifi influencers programme.
amplifi has a rich history of helping young people to succeed, as it was formerly GoThink Big. GTB was powered by the commitment and funding of O2, with NYA as the charity delivery partner. To power a new future for a successor to GTB, with a fresh approach to building on the legacy of something powerful, O2 gifted the online digital hub to the National Youth Agency to continue to support young people.
Although our name has changed to amplifi, we are still as passionate as ever to help you turn up your skill set and be ready for life’s next steps.
