Helping Australians ignite their spark—then and now

Communication coach Andrew Lloyde is looking forward to AMP's Amplify Festival 2015...


Life is full of moments that echo into your being, as communication coach Andrew Lloyde can testify.

When Andrew was a young country boy, his family bought a farm under AMP’s land development initiative. The scheme made farmland accessible and affordable for Australia’s returned servicemen and helped them find vocation, hope and a sense of purpose.

Now Andrew is mentoring Australia’s best and brightest PhD students in the Bright Sparks competition at AMP’s innovation and thought-leadership festival Amplify.

Andrew says that big companies can make a positive impact on the lives of Australians—not only through their business activities, but also their community initiatives.

“I love that the Bright Sparks and Tomorrow Makers initiatives provide opportunities and gateways for individuals who dare to dream, conceptualise and create...people who want to extend themselves through the mentorship, networking and experience offered to them at AMP’s Amplify Festival," he said.

“Many of the ideas, coming from these individuals are, in turn, created for the greater good of other people.

“Moving with the times AMP worked with rural communities when Australia was ‘living off the sheep’s back’ and now is encouraging and supporting the innovators of today.”
