Big Bang North West 2016: Sponsor Amanda Follit is an ‘Amaze’-ing Mentor!

Amaze exhibited an interactive Oculus Rift Experience at The Big Bang North West and generously sponsored the Digital Excellence Award as part of The Big Bang UK Young Scientists & Engineers Competition. Congratulations to Head of Digital Operations Amanda Follit, for being spotlighted in STYLIST Magazine as an ‘Amaze’-ing mentor!

“I would say I have been mentoring and coaching people informally and organically throughout my career. I was approached by the head of an organisation in the digital field, word spread from that and I now mentor a number of women from the digital industry.

At the same time, I have become involved with an organisation called Liverpool Girl Geeks, which helps to inspire confidence in 12–14 year olds. I’ve run sessions at workshops aimed at helping teenage girls to ‘find their voice’.
I really love listening to people, but also seeing their confidence develop.”
